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.
Most of the world has been wiped out by aliens... what is next for humanity?
Okay, to be honest -- I JUST saw this movie for the first time. But I loved it!
Who doesn't love the irony and satire of a good zombie movie?
Who doesn't love a clever and doubly ironic spoof of the said ironic and satirical zombie movie?
Dark, intense movie about the world in disarray once women have become infertile.
A look at humans once they've wasted the Earth.
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.
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.
