Celebrate Post Non-Apocalypse with Post-Apocalypse Film Fest

Well, if you are reading this, it means the world did not come to a crashing end!
Celebrate with a post-apocalypse movie marathon while you are wrapping presents and cooking your holiday feast today. Here are my top ten:

1. The Stand (1994)
Amazing plague movie based on novel by Stephen King. Gets a little weird at the end, but pretty awesome concepts.

2. Independence Day (1996)
Most of the world has been wiped out by aliens... what is next for humanity?

3. The Matrix (1999)
Okay, to be honest -- I JUST saw this movie for the first time. But I loved it!
4. Dawn of the Dead (2004)
Who doesn't love the irony and satire of a good zombie movie?

5. Shaun of the Dead (2004)
Who doesn't love a clever and doubly ironic spoof of the said ironic and satirical zombie movie?

6. Children of Men (2006)
Dark, intense movie about the world in disarray once women have become infertile.

7. WALL-E (2008)
A look at humans once they've wasted the Earth.

8. The Road (2009)
Amazing movie after an amazing novel -- the story of American survival after everything is wiped off the face of the planet.

9. 2012 (2009)
SO bad it's good-- the kind of hilarious but intense action that draws you in riveted.

10. The Hunger Games (2012)
The planet has undergone radical change, and the population has diminished, and resources are scarce. In this dystopian novel, the resources are controlled by The Capitol, which rules in tyrrany, doesn't treat its districts fairly, and forces them to participate in sacrificial games, in an arena, for public entertainment, as punishment for a rebel uprising 75 years before.

  1. Some streaming channels offer a limited time access to new releases a reasonable time after theatrical release, ending a reasonable time before DVD release.
