    By “Disaster,” do you mean the TYPE of film … or the overall artistic effect?

  2. Trip Says:

    This movie had…count ’em – not one, not two, but three separate airplane-escape scenes involving the same characters.

    The kids should have been permanently catatonic after the first one.

    Also, if I had to be any character in a disaster movie like this, I’d be the family dog. The dog always survives.

    The character I’d least want to be is the pudgy Russian lottery-winning tycoon with trophy wife.

    Liz, YES.

    Trip, I KNOW! It was ridiculous! Frankly, *I* was catatonic after the first one. God, this movie was boring. No character development, no real story, and even the special effects were dull — it was just the same stuff over and over again (here goes the road, a’crumblin’ again!).

    And I say this as someone who actually LIKED Day After Tomorrow, I should add.

  4. Trip Says:

    Not to mention, it…just…wouldn’t…END! What was it…three, four hours long? The Titanic sank faster than this thing.

    Man, GAH! Yes! DIE, movie, DIE!

    On Facebook, we’ve been talking today about how it was practically a snuff film, too. Lots of people who didn’t deserve to die died terrible deaths for no good reason (like, the old couple driving the car too slow — remember that scene? And Cusack finally manages to pass them, woo hoo!, and then we get to watch as they BOTH DIE behind him. Not to mention the trophy wife, who I didn’t think they needed to kill off, OR the plastic surgeon husband, who turned out to be a really great guy). MEANWHILE, the characters who clearly SHOULD have died, and more than once, kept ticking along.

    Incidentally, when I heard Cusack’s next project is a film called Hot Tub Time Machine, I wept for him.

    Gak! I’ve actually heard of “Hot Tub Time Machine!”

  7. TC Says:

    Hey I loved Hot Tub Time Machine!

    It was a hundred times better than 2012.
