Sucks. Don't Bother, it's rubbish.

Instead, spend your money on this

B00008OP5X.02.LZZZZZZZ.jpg

http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/B...9681721-7900628

It was made in 1959 but it kicks the shit out of that Day After Tomorrow crap.

Oh no, it's a bit nippy. Lets all kick up a fuss. Pansy's, in Journey to the center of the Earth, Professor Oliver Lindenbrook walks to the center of the Earth, that's right. He walks, he doesn't drill, he doesn't repel down a rock face, or drive down in some sub terrainian machine, he walks. IN SHORTS. Just the way a real man should.do you ever hear him complain about it being a bit chilly? Hells no. He just walks faster and then kicks the shit out of a giant lizard. Any giant lizards in Day After Tomorrow? No, oh that's a shame.

In conclusion, Professor Oliver Lindenbrook would kick your ass, and your mothers too.

In terms of flamboyant intellectual actors from the 1950's that made bad choices in the movies they starred in.

What the fuck are you babbling about? Jules Verne was a writer. He wrote the book that this movie was based on. He also wrote The Mysterious Island, 10,000 Leagues, and Around The World In 80 Days.

This movie stars James Mason, Pat Boon and the super hot Arlene Dahl.

Spoilers in this post people

I went to see it today after an exam to loosen up a tad, and it is shite. The first hour is ok, setting the scene for disaster etc, but the second half is ludicrous. If you're going to make a disaster film, you have to beat the disaster, not just hide in a library for a week. Oh look, the storms cleared, hooray! We can all leave our ridiculously swiftly built shanty town in Mexico! And whats wrong with using real wolves these days? CGI your dinosaurs, aliens, ringwraiths etc, but wolves are real! Just use real ones! They'd look less shit!

I actually think the "hiding" thing is much more realistic...you think if something like this happened in real life that we'd find some way to fix it?

Speaking of Around the World In 80 Days, the new version of that is gonna own all.

Steve Coogan + Jackie Chan x Senator Arnie = Genius

Agreed Mr Fizzle, its my most looked forward to film of this year.

Damn right, if the trailer is anything to go buy, should be ace:

Coogan: "Your silly bracelets don't frighten me..."

*Giant blade fires out of the top of the bracelet*

Coogan: "Alright....... they're not silly!"

Having considered it even more today, why the fuck is it called 'The Day After Tomorrow'? Its the most irrelevant title of all time. And when Dennis Quaid (is it him? He comes across as a poor mans Harrison Ford) throws his chum in a hole (good ten foot drop) to run away from the cold (Run away from the cold! Who wrote this!), he then runs through a door on his own and slams it shut. When it goes back to him, his mates alive and well and in a tent (albeit with a small bandage, a la HHH after being dropped from a crane in a car)!

Just got back from seeing it. I'm so sorry I didn't listen to you Iwc. I can't even begin to list everything that's wrong about this movie. It was awesomely bad for the first hour but then it got boringly bad for the second half. Shit dialogue, shit acting, retarded sub plots, a pack of hungry wolves... Avoid at all costs.

If you want to see if for the graphics(Dont know what else you'd care about), then watch as many trailers as you can, and you'll get the just of about everything worth seeing. Ive seen a jillion trailers AND the 10 minute preview on FOX a while back, so Id have to say the movie offered pretty much nothing new AT ALL to me. Get a rental, I beg you.

There are going to be spoilers below (much like the ones above)

I agree with everything that people have said here...great build-up and special effects, but not much else. The whole wolf things really seemed tacked on because someone decided they needed more peril, and figured disturbingly computer generated wolves were the way to go. Seriously, they were a few of notches above bad CG, but not *quite* at perfectly realistic, so I just found them to look really wierd.

Also, I laughed quite a bit at Dragonheart throwing his buddy down that hole when they were escaping the evil temperature...the way he was dropped, it looked like he pretty much gave him a death valley driver through an air vent, which is money in my books.

The whole running from the cold thing in the library really bothered me as well, just because they had already established that this cold is enough to flash-freeze helecopter fuel, and people, so it just seemed really wierd that they were able to close an old set of wooden doors to stop the cold from getting them. I understand they had a fire going and all that, but still...

One other thing that made me chuckle...I remember in Independance Day, not once in the movie did they mention Canada, so clearly I came to the conclusion that the aliens left us alone. After seeing the Day After Tommorow, as far as I can tell, Canada was pretty much whiped out, eh? There was never any "The storm will hit Canada in 7-10 days" it was all "The wort part of the storm will be making its way down from Canada soon". I found that pretty funny.

WEAK-ASS SPOILERS

Oh, I'd like to point out something I talked about with my friends after our screening...

The Vice President in the flick is a Dick Cheney look-a-like.....The President makes a stupid move, gets killed, and Cheney takes over and cleans up the mess. That's like some sort of reference to this previous 4 years in America without realizing it.....or was it intentional?
