>1 IT’S GENERIC

A silly, overblown disaster film about humanity facing extinction by earthquakes and tsunamis, 2012 is ploddingly predictable—and a long 2½ hours.

2 THERE GOES THE WHITE HOUSE. ZZZ.

Director-cowriter Roland Emmerich (Independence Day) again gleefully obliterates landmarks near and far, just because he can with CGI. Been there, destroyed that.

3 GORGONZOLA ISN’T THIS RIPE

With lines like “California is going down! Pack up the kids,” star John Cusack can only hope that viewers won’t hoot too harshly. Good luck with that.
