The Consumption – Nov 13

FILM: 2012: I was expecting the disaster movie to end all disaster movies, and on that level at least, director Roland Emmerich delivers. 2012 basically just takes scenes from every apocalypse flick ever made (a bit of Deep Impact here, some Volcano there, even some Titanic for good measure) and strings them together with the flimsiest pseudoscience and most saccharine dialogue that Emmerich and go-writer Harald Kloser could half-ass together. It’s fairly hilarious, even with Woody Harrelson mugging it up as a parody of his eco-activist persona, and Chiwetel Ejiofor is solid (and stolid) throughout. Not a good movie by any stretch, but I’ve spent 2 1/2 hours on worse things before.
