I think your guess is exactly right. The websites are making fun of it, "they" don't want people doing any type of preperation.
To achieve this, they need to try and detach peoples logic from artistic nature of ideas. Imagine how hard it is gonna be to actually persuade someone to read something about 2012 after this movie hits the box office.

Hunbatz Men believes that the Mayans are the original teachers of the world and that their ancestors traveled throughout the world to disseminate their knowledge. For instance, he says that the 300 B.C. Hindu writer Valmiki credits the Naga-Maya with bringing Hindus their culture in the year 2700 B.C. The Tibetans and Greeks have similar stories about being visited by the Cara-Maya in ancient times. Similarly, the Egyptian priest-historian Manetho also says the Mayax also visited Africa. He adds that people from all over the world visited the Americas in ancient times.
Don Alejandro Cirilo P?rez Oxlaj, a Mayan elder who spoke at a recent medicine conference, amazed the audience by not only confirming Hunbatz Men's ideas, but also by adding that the Mayans had received their original teachings from beings from the Pleiades star system, who visited them in ancient times in Yucat?n, M?xico.
Believing that the Mayans received their original instructions from beings from the Pleiades cannot be any less valid than believing, as Christians and Jews do, that Jehovah spoke to Moses on a mountain and gave him the Ten Commandments, or that Jesus and Mohammed ascended into heaven. It's certainly as valid as scientists speculating that there may be multiple universes, existing in different dimensions.
Cultural bias and military might are responsible for many of our societal beliefs. That, of course, does not make them right. We don't know what will happen in the next few days or in the next 12 years. What we do know is that it wouldn't hurt to listen to the words of Don Alejandro who said that on Dec. 20, 2012, Mother Earth will pass inside the center of a magnetic axis and that it may be darkened with a great cloud for 60 to 70 hours and that because of environmental degradation, she may not be strong enough to survive the effects. "It will enter another age, but when it does, there will be great and serious events. Earthquakes, maremotos (tsunamis), floods, volcanic eruptions and great illness on the planet Earth. Few survivors will be left."

This is no different than general hysteria when calendar rolled over from 999 to the year 1000, and Europe went into a panic thinking it was the end of the earth. Nothing happened then, nothing will happen in 2012..other than the next great hysteria taking hold of the masses and selling their books and tapes and videos and survival packages.
