Im a sucker for disaster movies, good or bad, so I'll probably watch it again. Although the title and the catalyst of the plot was the year 2012, it's still a typical disaster movie with falling buildings and a group of people trying to survive. Plus it's like other movies of the past including "2001: A Space Odyssey" or "Back to the Future", will you not watch these movies because the year they were based on has past? (granted those two examples are much better films!) Ultimately the movie 2012 was just your typical disaster film that comes around every few years, it just tried to market on the 2012 Mayan hysteria of the end of the world, while im sure many wont watch it again (for many reasons) I'm sure most who watch it just want to see the special effects and the typical disaster plot line.
