    Carpe Diem!

    A friend of mine gave me a copy of this DVD and I thought, "Oh great, another 2012 nail-biter." I mean, how many more doom-and-gloom stories can we hear? People always tend to look at the bleak side of things, especially when it comes to the supposed end of times. Sure, the Mayan's placed great importance on this date, but that doesn't mean the Earth will dissolve and us with it, or a giant meteor will annihilate us, or a huge (insert noun here) will wipe us out.

    What if 2012 is simply a new beginning? Maybe even a second chance for human beings? I thoroughly believe that something will take place in 2012 and it won't be the fire and brimstone so many are afraid of. After watching 2012 Mayan Prophecy and the Shift of the Ages I feel even more comforted and my mind has expanded as well. There are theories in this DVD that will blow you away! We need to seize the moment more and grasp opportunities as they arise rather than going through life heedless and mindless. This film will surely offer a wake up call to all who view it.

    Mayan prophecy a GOOD omen?

    Anybody doing anything on December 12th, 2012? Wanna come over and watch Armageddon come in? Having just made it through 9/9/9, which is after all, 666 upside down, I'm not looking forward to 10/10/10, 11/11/11 or (gulp) 12/12/12. If you paid more attention in math class, maybe you can figure out why the Mayan numbers add up to the world ending in 2012--it didn't compute for me. Nevertheless, I enjoyed this movie for its Death Rock music and paranoid vision (turned hopeful at the end). I found the Mayan Calendar explanation fascinating, and aside from the prophecy, would like to know more about it. What's interesting is this film postulates the "significant event" in 2012 might be positive, the dawning of the Age of Aquarius, as the song says. Let's hope so.

    Very Enjoyable

    Philip Coppens and Geoff Stray do an excellent job of detailing the true Mayan Prophecies that have been completely blown out of proportion by Hollywood. Very enjoyable, well researched and educating film, entertaining too.

    Beware the Dark Rift!

    This documentary uses metal music, and often dark graphics, as well as expert interviews, to recount the Mayan prophecy that the End of Days will come on December 21st, also known as The Dark Rift or The Road to the Underworld. Interesting and easy to watch.
