The End of the World
We took my aunt, uncle and mom to see 2012 this afternoon. They wanted to see it since they figured it didn't have much crucial dialogue for them to be confused by. The local movie reviewers also mentioned how you would see what happens to the state of Hawaii. Yes, we do get creamed. I realize now that we really don't have our house high enough up the hill to avoid a cataclysmic tsunami. I'm also not sure I'm feeling safe about going to Yellowstone Park after all.
I am not one for disaster movies. As a matter of fact, I don't like them. I'm not big into special effects. But by golly, this movie does take you for a ride! How in the world did they do all that computer graphics? Good grief! I realized I was holding my breath with each wave and wanted to press the gas pedal several times during the scenes of them trying to escape. I would have to say this really is the mother of all disaster movies so far.
I think I'm tired from the tension of watching it. I'm going to take a rest now before I put on those aforementioned boots to go to my line dancing lesson tonight.
