Because We All Need More KABOOM! In Our Lives

That’s pretty much what you get out of the five minutes of Roland Emmerich’s 2012 that was released online on Friday. It’s ridiculous, over-the-top, completely chaotic, and strangely fun. You get to see John Cusack overact, and Los Angeles get smashed to bits, wrath-of-God style. It doesn’t have rivers of blood or fire raining from the sky, but it might as well. At least it doesn’t have shitty CGI wolves.

Anyway, here it is:

Yup. Shitballs retarded. The thing is, I know I’m going to end up seeing it. And I feel like, to make the experience even remotely worthwhile, I should see it in the theater, so at least I can get all the bloated, overdone racket on a big screen with deafening kaboomy sound. Because I don’t get enough kaboominess in my life, so I might as well get it from stupid Emmerich films.

Regardless, 2012 comes out November 13. Get ready. There will be poor writing, and chaos, and CGI up the wazoo. And, of course, kaboominess.
