(note: if you really want to watch the movie stop reading right now because I am about to reveal the ending), The really weird part came during the last fifteen minutes of the film, an asteroid ends up hitting the atlantic ocean and the entire east coast is destroyed by a giant tsunami, then the president (Morgan Freeman) addresses the nation and says something to the effect of "Now it is time to rebuild our country, our home,", which in most cases would be pretty cheesy, but it was actually pretty eery seeing as how at that exact time the bus was entering Krabi, which is on the West coast of Thailand, an area that sustained a lot of damage and loss of life when the Tsunami struck fifteen months ago. It was one of those moments where I was just like "wow, that's pretty intense."
I'm going to add more to this entry later, gotta run now though...
So the only thing really noteworthy about the trip from Koh Phangan to Krabi was the movie that they played on the bus. For starters they turned the volume up full blast so that it was impossible to do anything but watch the movie. The movie they played was "Deep Impact" which is an an asteroid-threatens-to-destroy-planet kind of movie, like "Armaeddon" with Bruce Willis but not as good (which isn't saying much).
