I just saw the trailer for 2012. I was astonished to find myself almost looking forward to it. I think I know why - I think I finally realized that a tiny little piece of me - the piece that hoped for years beyond hope that there will ever be a well-done actual science fiction movie released ever again - died. It is a great weight lifted off me. I feel a sense of closure. Perhaps I can fianlly enjoy really awful stuff like Meteor and The Core. While watchnig the trailer, I caught myself actually thinking those dreaded words: ooh nice visuals, great SFX. Hm. Perhaps it's not a great weight lifted. Perhaps I've just finally gotten lobotomized by the younger-gen mass media hysteria. So what, in your opinion, was the last good science-fiction movie that was made? The last one you came out of not feeling the need to shower while repeating Newtons Laws of Motion as a mantra to reassure yourself you're still sane? Has it been two years? Five years? Ten years?
