Movie Hells

The Arts

I saw two movies this weekend, ‘2012’, a film of almost surreal stupidity in which a skimpily-clad girl discusses her boob job while walking through post apocalyptic Tibet, and the fate of the whole of India is deemed less important than saving a dog. And this, ’13: Game Of Death’, a ‘What would you do?’ film that the distributors don’t want you to know is in the Thai language. Of the two, the second is better because it has a plot, and a hellishly good one. Expect a Hollywood remake.

    Hi Chris,
    I’ve also seen ’13: game of death and thought the plot was very engrossing ,but I might have stopped at the resturant challange.

    Hold on… 2012, isnt that from the people who did Day After Tomorrow? That was so realistic! The bit with the wolves and the ship was so engrossing and a great example of how to seamlessly integrate a suspense scene without looking as if it was shoehorned in.

    But seriously WTF is John Cusack doing in this??

    My enthusiasm for 2012 is not because I think it’s high art with an important social message. Screw that %u2013 this movie is about pure spectacle, and it pulls that off fabulously
