‘2012’ movie delivered excitement,anticipation & suspense. Columbia Pictures unleashed its world destruction movie on us all,this weekend. I just got back from seeing it,and I must say that I personally was not disappointed with it.

The movie focused on Jackson Curtis (John Cusack) who’s a limo driver and a father to two kids that are living with his ex-wife and her surgeon boyfriend. And apparently,he had also written a book.

They all eventually came together as one united family when Jackson finds out the world is about to end, from a eccentric loony named Charlie Frost (Woody Harrelson). Read more »
