2012 comes out this weekend, more apocolypse and mayhem. I have heard bad reviews, I have not seen it, I don't plan on seeing it. I will keep my ten bucks for another movie.

But I am willing to bet 1,000 bts points that the Statue of Liberty gets destroyed.

Long ago after seeing the Day after Tomorrow with my brother, he said the Statue of Liberty always gets it.

Just how many times has lady Liberty bit it?

I will start with the first I can remember:

Planet of the Apes
The Day after Tomorrow
Independance Day


what movies are we missing?





:bnghd:

Well in Ghostbuster's it wasn't destroyed so much as came to life.

Don't know if that counts though..

I haven't seen Cloverfield.

So that is four.

I know there has to be a lot more.

Cloverfield sucked! That hand held camcorder technique is so annoying.

You can add this one too.

Deep Impact

I wonder how many times the Golden Gate Bridge has been destroyed in movies?

Deep Impact, that was one movie I was trying to think of.

Is Armegeddon another?

And yes, the Golden Gate Bridge and White House always get it too.

But as a reviewer of 2012 said, while very predictable, if a tidal wave took out Boise Idaho, it wouldn't be as interesting.

Roland just loves blowing up the Statue of Liberty and the White House...(no doubt he's on a list with HS, hehe...)

Well, to agree with a poster before me, nobody really wants to see something lame or non-wonderous blown up, destroyed, or otherwise annihilated. Seeing a rural farm community get covered by a tidal wave? Not interesting. Seeing the Eiffel Tower get vaporized by an alien attack? Interesting. And if you're gonna have something blown up, what better than a major symbol of everything America has to offer?

The Statue of Liberty was famously portrayed in the movie Planet of the Apes, I remember the first time I saw Charlton Heston riding along the beach on his horse, only to discover the Statue deformed and buried in the sand and waves.

I nearly fell off my chair ! What a great movie twist !

But then, I didn't work out the Sixth Sense until about an hour after we'd left the theatre

LOL thank you for the laugh Ulala. Don't worry, I didn't get it right that second either.

But I see it this way, instead of figuring out the movie ten minutes in, we get the actual joy of being surprised.
