Last night we watched '2012'.
I didn't watch it straight from the beginning. I was on the computer working on
something, so when I finally looked over and saw it was on, it was already at the
part where the filthy-rich people were laughing over 'having a ticket and living'
while the main guy 'was going to die'. I was like, "Eh, looks passable." So I paid
attention from that point on.
I feel really awkward and lame for saying this, but I don't think I've ever cried
so much during a movie. I mean, that movie got TERRIBLE reviews, and here I was
bawling like a baby.
I got teary-eyed at some points at first, but what really got me going was when the
young Russian guy sacrificed himself for all the others. I had pretty much assumed a
lot of these guys were going to die sooner or later, but I still started crying. He
was a jerk and everything, and I was still crying over his death. What he does is
take over the plane so the others can get to safety in the car. The others get away,
and he's heading toward the cliff, so you can pretty much tell what's going to
happen. He's about to go over the cliff. He goes over. And he dies.
And what got me was, he died all alone. After saving the guys and the kids, he dies
alone in a plane.
So, yeah. I know it's pathetic, but I guess that's the kind of person I am.
The next time I cried was when the monk picks up the family (after the rich guy
deserts them AND his girlfriend to get to safety with his horrible children) and
takes them to his brother, so they can sneak onto one of the ships. The brother was
not willing to take any extras, just his own family. Then there was the mother,
pleading for him to just take her children. She didn't care about them, as long as
her children could go. And the kids were crying. And he wouldn't be moved. And I
thought, wow. When it was silent, the mom just looks around at everyone, and starts
yelling, "Oh my GOD," because they couldn't see reason. Then, she turns to the
grandmother and says, "Please. As a mother to a mother, please, please, take my
children." And the grandma says, "We will take them all."
OVER A MOVIE.
But it was beautiful, to me.
And then (of course it would get worse) the new husband guy dies. I mean, I
understood why they killed him off, but honestly. They CRUSHED HIM BETWEEN TWO GEARS.
What a horrible way to die. I literally chocked out "NO!" through my tears. UGH.
I cried AGAIN when the rich guy (and his two kids) were trapped beneath the gates
while everyone else rushed onto the Ark. The gate was closing, and they clambered
over the wall to get on. The gate keeps rising. So the rich guy takes one of his kids
and basically throws him over the top. A guy already on the ship turns and sees, so
he rushes over to help. The other kid can't reach. The father grabs his legs and
CHUCKS him onto the gate. . . but slips, and falls to his death below. And the two
kids, although spoiled, were crying so hard over their father's death, and I thought,
son of a bitch.
Then, the blond Russian lady gets trapped between two gates, with water rising.
She'd gotten the little girl (and her dog, even) to the other side before the gate
closed, so she was safe. And they kept going back to her, the water rising every
time, screaming and pleading for someone to save her. She was crying so hard. She
dies, of course. And I cried again.
Those were the main things I cried for. I mean, there were so many other things,
too. Like the president's death. And that guy's Indian friend with his family. The
little girl and her mother and father in Tokyo (talking to her Grandpa for the first
time, no less!) That guy's dad. Even the goddamn old lady in her car at the
And all of those people, hanging off the buildings, being crushed inside their
cars, falling into the boiling pit. I was disturbed by these guys' attention to
death. They showed so much of it (I mean, I know a lot of people ARE going to die
when the world ends, but GOD).
That's the end of my awful rant.
Am I too horribly sensitive?
I mean, I felt stupid for crying, because so many people were saying that that
movie wasn't even good.
I just felt so bummed for the rest of the night after watching it.
