Ugh....

2012 < TDAT < ID4.....

You're supposed to get better as your career progresses, not worse........

2012 was absolutely atrocious. Apart from most of the stuff in the film being scientifically unsound, there was quite poor cinematography+visuals imo. Its too bad it did as well as it did in the box office. It should have drowned in a 800m tidal wave that moves at 1mm/sec.

Lol. So true.

I loved Independence Day!

Didn't even bother to see 2012 :P

Guy needs work. Or needs to realize there ARE things outside of the growing world of CGI.

Me either... I'll probably see it at some point to satisfy my disaster porn craving (heck, I've watched 'Night of the Twisters' and 'Category 6')

Personally I blame George Lucas... people saw the dialog from the later day Star Wars movies and the industry as a whole started mailing it in.

What, no <3 for Armageddon? :O

I did too, except for Data creeping the movie out. You have to admit though, ID4 was a rip-off of V. Which I might add is not a bad remake going on over at ABC.

I'm guessing you missed the connection.... try again :)

Funny, I heard the visual were straight up amazing.

Amazing, yet wholly unbelievable. You can only see the earth falling away from behind a vehicle so many times before it begins to lose its effect.

I'll agree 2012 could have been *so* much better had it been a little more grounded scientifically and the CGI scaled back just a tad.

Independance Day...

So we'll stop the aliens by plugging our Laptop into the USB slot on the Mothership... >_<

Not seen 2012, not going to. The CGI wolves form DAT were so bad, they were funny. Why do you even need CGI wolves... /sigh

As for the new V, it's so bad it might just qualify for 'terribad'. ;)
