Thumbs down The Day After Tomorrow - dont waste your money

Today our team building event was going to lunch and then a movie. So we all went to a local AMC cinema to see "The Day After Tomorrow", a disaster flic about catastrophes caused by sudden shifts in weather.

The movie was made by the same folks who made Independence Day.

This movie sucks big time. The melodrama is more than a Shahrukh Khan movie. The only good part - some computer effects people made good money generating some of the best effects ever seen.

Since it was free tickets for us, I dont lament the cost of tickets. However, I sincerely advise you to watch this on DVD when it is released in that format.
My review Two enthusiastic thumbs down

There are many inconsistencies with the timeline and the plot even if you accept the premise that global weather conditions can rapidly change within days instead of decades.

The body heat scene was the most laughable scene and was really not needed. It was not even done very tastefully to atleast titilliate the otherwise bored audience.

Its a waste folks. The only scene which they show in the previews is worth watching. After you see that scene the rest becomes pretty much the same and boring.

The mroe I think about it, the whole film gets a bit political. The Vice President has a very remarking likeness to Dick Cheney. The President in the movie delegates all tasks to Vice President.

Then Mexico does favors for USA. The entire Western world realises that using up earth's resourcesis bad. Only the developed nations get fcuked but the developing thirld world nations dont get affected and help out the people from the developed nations.

Opening scene is supposed to have happened in New Delhi. It looked from like Moscow.

The movie will give multiple orgasms to green party minded folks.

Haan beta .. USA sidelined matrix and lord of the rings got all the oscers - why? Because Matrix pushed an agenda - a political message against "one world order" "all seeing eye" "illuminati" - it made you think - a lot!! Which US govt. doesn't like!!

Were we surprised? No!
Did it make Matrix any lesser movie? NO!!

The same is being tried with "The day after tomorrow" - any surprise?

Have you ever wondered - why all the free tv channels are so crapy in USA? Even paid channels/cable tv are so far away from reality and the concent is so surfacial and uneducational/unscientific - govt. does not want you to think!

Have you ever wondered why all the food is corn syrup, carb and cholestrol rich? They almost converted the whole society into burger munching average thinkers! This keeps poor the relativity between rich and poor maintained!

This is a must see movie - it pushes a political agenda and pushes some buttons - just like Cha pai's button got pushed!


REMINDER READERS/Echarchans:
As far as being a movie goer and film critic is concerned this rash review is coming from a pro-bush pro-war bhau who's fev. actor is Govinda and Fev. director is Devid Dhavan and fev producer is dada kondke! Cha pai ki aise fattee mein hai jaanbooz ke pro bush baaten boltaa hai jaise ki ye site CIA aur FBI ke radar pe ho - iska green card chheen lenge!!

There is only so much bullshit a human brain can absorb. I hated Independence day and walked out of the theatre first fifteen minutes ... stayed in the car, enjoyed listerning to music while waiting for family.

cha bhau, ye kya chuttyagiri hai yaar!!! third world, bush ye woh!!! kahi kuch ho to nahi gaya hai naa

itz just a coincidence that most of third world is on the southern side of the globe and the freezing happens in the north

and by the way, the movie is very watchable. not as bad as our EC Taran Adarsh has projected it

I tell you what.. before you go to a movie.. read its review on rediff.. and then take the risk. I read the review long ago on rediff (immediatly after release) and that was pretty brutal.. I decided not to punish myself.

Kil unkil.. do not worry.. atleast part of the paap you comit daily (unavoidable naa.. lawyer jo hai ) dhul gayaa.. chal khush ho jaa.

Thoda na thoda mental agony hua hoinga naa.. that has to cancel out some paap however small as per the logic of the above gita's gyaan..
