[I tried asking this Mayan friend of mine about the prediction but I was promptly ignored...]
With all these predictions in mind, no one really knows for sure what is going to happen today until the day passes. But what if there is something about this whole disaster that we will actually know will happen over the coming weeks?
[Hypp TV. You can't get anymore hip than that! :D]
Starting from Wednesday at 8.20pm, the good people that brings you HyppTV and repeats on Saturdays at 10.50pm, they will be showcasing some of the best movies that would best prepare you for doomsday occurrences should it happen to you, and of course all in HIGH DEFINITION!
So what are some of these shows that they are showing?
You got movies like Alien Tornado (November 7, Wednesday @ 8.20pm) that basically tells you the story of an extraterrestrial "superstorm" that is heading Earth's way and the only way for people to survive is to make a run for it to the nearest safe place, of course.
Directed by Jeff Burr, the premise of the entire movie includes your usual explosions, panic people running and good old human determination of surviving and storming a global catastrophic meltdown. Sounds like a good mix of an awesome sit in movie. Oh and wait for the end, there is a surprise that is a little closer to home... :D
They will also be showcasing Super Storm (November 14, Wednesday @ 8.20pm) which tells a story of Jupiter’s famous blemish, the Great Red Spot, which has vanished. When massive storms are reported in North America, it quickly becomes apparent that the huge, high storm that has been swirling around Jupiter for hundreds of years has landed on Earth. Swallowing up everything in its path, the Great Red Spot threatens to transform Earth into another Jupiter-like gas giant in just a matter of days!
Giant tornado, real life occurrence in a distant planet and of course one teenager's attempt to stop all this from a science project. Epic is on the way.
Of course not all of the shows are about disaster storms and destruction. Lightning Strikes (November 21, Wednesday @ 8.20pm) showcases a storyline that involves aliens terrorizing a small city by literally "frying" its residence through strikes of electricity. Some may run but some decides to fight back at the extra terrestrial with its own medicine before things get too far.
Although we have had our fair share of alien invasion disaster movies in the past, you know you can never go wrong with that!
If there is anything that scares people the most (thank you 2012 the movie) is the unpredictable weather. In Weather Wars (November 28, Wednesday @ 8.20pm), an eminent scientist goes haywire and becomes determined to seek revenge. In true mad scientist fashion, he transforms weather into a force of destruction of death, controlled only by his whims. Now, it is up to his two sons, estranged brothers played by Jason London (Dazed and Confused, Jason and The Argonauts) and Wes Brown (True Blood, Private Practice), to team up and put a stop to their father’s dastardly plans of destroying the nation’s capital. We hope they remember to bring an umbrella.
If you think you have not have enough of tornado movies already, HyppTV also showcases Metal Tornado (December 5, Wednesday @ 8.20pm). The story follows Samuel Planck, who is head of a high tech facility tasked with storing and converting renewable energy, and after years of research it is now time to test the system out. But when the facility is unable to control the massive amount of energy coming in, the charged particles begin swirling around quickly turning into a magnetic tornado. Planck and his team must find a way to stop the tornados before they destroy everything.
Crazy scientist project that loses out of control. Sounds extremely plausible. Stop meddling you crazy scientists...
Its been a while since we have had an epic movie about big, large, planetary proportion objects that is hurdling Earth's way. With Collision Earth (December 12, Wednesday @ 8.20pm) the storyline tells on a natural disaster that happens to another planet which is going to be a huge problem to ours. When the sun converts to a magnetar for a short time, the planet Mercury is thrown out of orbit (along with a spaceship exploring it) and set on a collision course for Earth. Can a disgraced scientist manage to use his failed weapon system, Project 7, to save our planet?
We'll soon find out!
With awesome movies like this, what is missing now are now heavyweight actors to spice up the whole disaster movie. With SuperCyclone (December 19, Wednesday @ 8.20pm) the story explores a mega cyclone threatens to rip the East Coast of the United States off the map with deadly winds and killer waves. Before the storm claims millions of lives, a beautiful meteorologist (Ming-Na, SGU Stargate Universe) must join forces with a street-smart petroleum engineer (Nicholas Turturro, NYPD Blue) to brave the elements and save the day.
So with programming with epic proportions that is installed for HyppTV, one would be glued to their seats with movies like these, despite all the predictions that was made by the Mayans and everything that is happening around us. As far as we are concerned, even with disasters like this was to happen, come at least we would still have hope that one person with that science project/ experiment machinery/ ingenious plan would come out and finally save the day. Well, at least that's what the movies will tell us.... :D
Happy Watching people and stay safe!
