I should say that I do love movies and have probably spent a total of 2/5th of my life lost in the wonders of a movie. For me, what makes a great film is if the picture can make me suspend belief that these people are getting paid millions of dollars to act, and make me feel as if I am watching real life. Even your over hyped/over budgeted/overacted big action movies, if done right, can make me feel as if it is really happening. I like to put myself in the movie while it is playing and if I am comfortable then I can rally enjoy the movie. I love to get lost in movies. Basically run free on the sets(which in my mind are real) and absorb the feelings and actions that are being portrayed. But when a movie takes it too far into unrealistic, I feel I am basically left wishing I had not spent the price of a glorious Chinese Buffet on a movie.
2012 left me feeling this was. I can get lost in a multitude of different movies even bad ones if they do not go over board on dreamlike. Take for example the Matrix. They made me feel all of that was possible. 2012 made me slightly believe that the earth will completely cave in on itself and buildings will hurl into each other. But I could not concentrate on that decent part of the film due to the fact that 4 people out of 9 billion people were able to escape this horrendous death. OK, once or twice to make for some drama could be acceptable, but not 37 times. (I did lose track after 3 so I could be off a bit)
Well I am not sure I made it clear, so I will just spit it out. If I had a rating system for my feelings about a movie this one would only get one and a half out of the possible five. The one and a half comes because my favorite character in the film, the earth, did a fantastic job at it's one job, which was to destroy itself. It was amazing to see some of those screens on the big screen, so if you do decide to go view this dream of a movie, see it on the big screen. Just don't fall asleep, you never know what might happen in your dreams while at a moveam.
Until next time.
One more thing. I have to give a plug out for Bing.com I really like that search engine and I like how they have a new picture every day, so that has inspired me to end each blog with a picture.
