The Mayans and others, have also insisted that their calendar does not "end", a new cycle will begin.
I don't look at the new 2012 movie being fact anymore than The Never Ending Story, or The Spongebob Movie. I'd probably watch it, because I like disaster flicks and while I might say "I sure hope something like that doesn't happen", I won't reserve the idea that it will.
I'd probably also watch Shift of Ages, just to see what it was about. Since I'm interested in the whole idea.

Ex Amityville Horror, it didnt happen that way at all, major over exaggeration going on there
Celtic druids in ancient Europe used 'magic' wands to conduct or orchestrate order. Druids were the lawyers, priests etc. These wands always used wood from holly trees. Hollywood.
I personally will not go to see this movie as I do not wish to pollute global consciousness with negative emotions focused on a specific date in history.
the Mayan calender which is several intetwined calenders, does not end at 2012, its simply shifts phases as it does quite frequently
We are living today in the cusp of the Mayan end times, the end of a galactic day or time period spanning thousands of years. One galactic day of 25,625 years is divided into five cycles of 5,125 years.
The Great Cycle of the Mayan Long Count calendar ends on the winter solstice of 2012 A.D. Following Mayan concepts of cyclic time and World Age transitions, this is as much about beginnings as endings. In fact, it was considered by the ancient Mayans to signify the creation of a new World Age. We are almost at the end of the fifth and final 5,125 year cycle!
