2012 Supernova

2012 Supernova (Wow, that’s original!)

I guess this cheap knock off wanted to ride on the coattails of the other 2012 movie. The studio behind this movie, with the fitting name of The Asylum, has made other movies like this one. The funny thing is the studio isn’t making those spoof movies or those porn parodies, but cheap knock offs that are played completely seriously. They’re just cheaper than the ones they’re copying off of.

The director of this “wonderful” piece of movie magic is Anthony Fankhauser. Looking at his IMDB, I see other knock off works he’s been producer on. Uwe Boll would be proud of this guy. Hell, he might be related to Mr. Boll.

Snakes on a Train: Would you like them on a boat or on a goat? Would you like them on a plane or a train? Really, Snakes on a Train?

Allan Quatermain and the Temple of Skulls: Well, the other Quatermain movies weren’t that good either.

100 Million BC: I just have to laugh at this one.

Journey to the Center of the Earth: Let’s not even try to change the name.

The Day the Earth Stopped: Now, this one is just hilarious. They’re making reference to The Day the Earth Stood Still.

Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus: Is this a take on Lava Girl and Shark Boy? BTW, you know a movie is going to be bad when your leading man is Lorenzo Lamas.

The Land That Time Forgot: Shouldn’t that be the Land of the Lost.

BTW, enjoy this “wonderful” trailer to find out how laughably bad this movie is.

Lee from Quit Your Day Job was obsessed with Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus.

And every time I see the title of this movie, I think about another crappy movie with an Alan Smithee type directing job called Supernova.

I'm really tempted to actually rent Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus. I'll have to look his thoughts on the movie.

Supernova: Holy, crap, I see that cover (2000?) version in the bargain bin in every Wal-mart I go to. No joke.

BTW, there are no less than 7 of these Supernova movies. Check out the casting in all of them.
