It's another week on the Monday Movie Meme tour hosted by Dale at Smurfin' the Web and I. The current topic selected by Dale is "Natural Phenomena." Dale says, Rain or shine, there is always a movie about the weather or our planet that usually ends up in some kind of disaster or another. So, here is my pick for this week's Meme.
The turn of events that took place during "2012" appeared to serve as an example of how personal or social connections (or lack thereof) can determine how far people can get in life, especially in an emergency. If the main character didn't know that rich Russian man through his job, he and his family probably would have died or at least faced a lot more danger than they did while trying to survive global cataclysm.
This movie could be a nice reality check for those that have doubts about the possibilities of our world changing forever, the aspects of life that we sometimes take for granted and and the importance of knowing people in high and low (Woody Harrelson's character is hilarious and seems to be mor conscious of what's going on than those around him) places.
"2012" is the only film that I can think of at the moment after noticing that my prime choice was already listed by a fellow Monday Movie Meme participant. Now, either Hollywood needs to start making more natural disaster movies or I need to find and watch more of the films that were released to date.
