2012: Another Doomsday Drama

The doomsday drama 2012 opened at the top of the box office this weekend. I did not see it but I had a lot of friends go and they all came back saying the same thing, "Well, now I'm paranoid."


Playing off of the Mayan calendar's prediction that the world will end in 2012, the movie follows Jackson Curtis (played by John Cusack) and his family as they try to escape the apocalypse by getting on board one of the arks, which were constructed to save the heads of state, hand-picked individuals chosen to repopulate the earth and the rich elite.

These end-of-the world movies make for great action films, but they really do freak me out. Not saying that I necessarily believe that the world is going to end in 2012, it's just a really scary thought, whether it's true or not.   

Are you going to see this movie? What are your thoughts on doomsday films?
