Another instance of “Hype Gone Wrong” occurred with this movie. I must admit, I was really excited to see this movie. I’ve been seeing the billboards for months and it looked like it was gonna be a good flick. Too bad I didn’t watch the trailer first, I would have known how bad it was. So anyways, here is a movie trailer based on the Mayan Calendar. After you watch this one, watch the trailer for “2012” the Hollywood movie and see how they took a small fraction of truth and twisted it in the most outrageous way.
The movie 2012 was lame. I was rolling my eyes at its riduculosness through out the entire movie. I sighed, I slapped my leg… I really just couldn’t stand it. To make it even worse, they threw in the corniest humor imaginable.
If my friend Matthew Ota is reading this, I would love to hear your views. Is there really a grand planetary alignment occurring in 2012? What effects do alignments have on the Earth? What do you think of the 2012 hype? Matt is an amateur astronomer & telescope operator. He has worked at Mt. Wilson Observatory and hosted countless astronomy outreach programs.
