I don't think Hollywood can be used as a measure of how awakened the public is. Though Hollywood reflects much of our culture, it panders to our
emotions, not our intellect. It makes movies that reflect our fears, hopes, suspicions, and so on, not what we actually think.
Most people who have heard about 2012, for example, know almost nothing about it. To them it's just another end of the world prediction. We get
these all the time, so most people ignore them. But Hollywood presents a "what if" scenario, which does kind of play to our fears of an
Same goes for all the other movies. It's emotions, not reason. If Hollywood thought people were getting worked up over demons taking over
politicians, they'd make a movie about it.
But end of the world movies are cool, as are huge disaster movies (hurricane, earthquake, asteroids, etc). Movies about government conspiracies are
common. So are movies about continued existence after death, demons and angels, ghosts, psychic phenomena, and on and on. I don't think it means
anything other than Hollywood thinks it can make money off the idea.
