The end of the world as we know it

Just watched 2012, so now I know all about the cataclysms that will befall this planet in a couple years. The movie stars John Cusack, Amanda Peet, Danny Glover, and the kid who plays young Shawn in Psych. Oh yeah, Woody from Cheers is in there too.

My review of the movie: Though cheesy, cliched, and cartoonishly unbelievable at times, 2012 is a great ride. The destruction scenes are spectacular and the story is entertaining. Perhaps my biggest criticism is that by the third act the plot becomes a modern retelling of a familiar Bible story. That's just silly. Who would do that? Nonetheless, the movie is so much fun, I gotta give it a thumbs up.

Still, I wonder if Cusack could have prevented all that solar flare devastation by holding up a boombox to deflect away the sun's rays.
