Im not absolutely sure if this is the correct thread (as it can probably in a way be under 2012 discussions as well) it just me or are there a lot of movies that are and have come out this year revolving around the end of man kind and our planet...."The day the earth Stood Still"... "Knowing"... "2012".... are these wrighters and producers just riding the 2012/earthly distruction wave, or can there be more to it...

just riding the wave i recon. Many people are becoming fasinated with the 2012 prophecys, and end of the world films are always a big hit, so mix the 2 together and your garenteed a hit.

I think the general idea that would like to be conveyed is "the end of the world situations" but through all of my searching, I don't think the world will die or cease to be (now, or around 2012) but certainly, hopefully, the world as we know it will end.

at least, for the facsist and tyrannical power systems I hope.

If topics that are close to home for us conspiracy finding types find their way into the media outlet, it enables the general population not currently aware enough to think saying "oh, I saw a movie on that." And then trying to reestablish a valid claim on said subject to a person with an already determined outlook on the event becomes nill.

Omitting truth, and modifying truth is a game. An old game.

Yeah, probably just riding the wave. The producers are just trying to make a few bucks.

Of course (as you know) "The Day the Earth Stood Still" is a remake of a film from the 50's.

...And it's worth noting that "2012" is being directed (and co-produced)by the hack and schlockmeister Roland Emmerich (Stargate, Independence Day, Godzilla, The Patriot). Emmerich loves explosions and spectacle. Unfortunately, it'll probably be a very unsatisfying film.

There is definitely a vibe way up in the spiritus mundi that some heaviness is about to go down. You can feel it in the air, the electric crackle of an immanentizing eschaton.

Hollywood is partially complicit in this. The link between Hollywood and the Illuminati and the occult is well known.

And more to the point, even if you assign to Hollywood the more benign motive of "Make a buck where you can make it", then, well, producers can tell anxiety and ecstasy that the world as we know it won't be going on much longer is in the air. They're going to cash in.

What's is this "illuminati" nonsense?

I'm guessing that it was supposed to be the point that the powers that be apparently use types of films to de-sensitize people to what may happen in the future.. films about martial law, the world ending etc, making people ready for when it actually happens

I'm just shuddering at the fact they are making a sequel to Donnie Darko ( just found that out recently).

Lazy, lazy Hollywood, with no real sense of originality anymore.

I wonder when was the last time I saw a truely ground breaking film. Probably Borat

Also to add to the list is 'The Road', due out in October (I believe)..

It looks like, from what I've read and seen, it will be a pretty good and realistic version of what the world would look like after massive deaths and breakdown of society.

It seems to me that a possible positive change is coming, only TPTB/Hollywood try to condition people into fear of this event, so that they can use it to fit their agenda.

In other words, stop our spiritual evolution.
