Freshmen Bubba Nelson, Emmalynn Berry, and Jorey Skinner protecting their brains from aliens as they wait for the world to end. "I feel it could be a good and a bad thing," said Nelson when asked his thoughts on the end of the world. "It depends on what you believe in, it could be a good way to restart."

Just about every year, a new superstition rises about how our inevitable end will come. This time around, Twitter believes that aliens are going to waste their time and destroy us all; when they could do anything else and have less time wasted. The ordeal has brought an interesting perspective to how fast the public’s mind can turn to the end of the world because of what could just be nothing. For example, when the world started to believe the end was in 2012 because the Mayans ran out of room on a circle. A film inspired by the calendar was released in 2009 simply called, 2012.

2012 follows a washed out author trying to get his kids back home to his previously divorced wife. Suddenly the film shifts to a disaster movie out of nowhere because now everyone is trying to escape the apocalypse taking place around them. This film sounds like a cheap cash in on the success of movies like Twister or Independence Day, except about 16 years too late. The only reason this film is watchable is the fact that the action scenes, while extremely improbable, are actually interesting to watch. Seeing the destruction of a city in this film was actually intriguing, but not as much as it could have been, if it wasn’t for Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, earlier that year, in which director Michael Bay made an explosion seem about as cool as watching paint dry.

You’re not missing anything if you don’t see this movie. The disaster movie fad stopped almost as soon as it got started and none of them were very interesting anyways. They all have the same formula; misunderstood guy makes a mistake and his significant other leaves him until some sort of catastrophe makes the misunderstood guy the new hero after which his significant other falls back in love with him. There’s also some cowardly comic relief in the movie you almost wish would get killed because of how annoying he gets.

Whether it’s aliens, planetary destruction, or the rapture, there is a great chance we’re all gonna die anyways. Rather than waste time worrying about it, try and have a decent time with the time that you have left. However, do not waste your time watching 2012. My rating for this film is four world ending catastrophes out of 2012.
