So here are a few great end of days films that you and a loved one may want to watch this weekend. Just so you know what you missed.
2012 It’s only fitting that this be the first one. It is 2012 ya know.
War Games Mathew Broderick as A young man finds a back door into a military central computer in which reality is confused with game-playing, possibly starting World War III. And then they play chess and eat cookies!
District 9 An extraterrestrial race forced to live in slum-like conditions on Earth suddenly finds a kindred spirit in a government agent who is exposed to their biotechnology.
This was from the team that were supposed to make the live film HALO. Still Waiting for that one.
There is no Sanctuary
Logan’s Run An idyllic sci-fi future has one major drawback: life must end at 30. Michael York, Jenny Agutter star in this film. And I just love Jenny Agutter. The Film is Campy compared to the cinema of the day, but is very telling to the culture of the 70′s. Youth was calling the shots, beauty and leisure coupled with freedom to consume. This film can easily cross generation gaps.
Equilibrium In a Fascist future where all forms of feeling are illegal, a man in charge of enforcing the law rises to overthrow the system.
MATRIX You know the story, you know the characters. Re-watch it, because the world as we know it may have already come to an end.
The Book of Eli Denzel… A Bible… And a Machete… That’s about all I have to say about that.
Zombieland Um probably one of the coolest, not too gory Zombie films. We got my man Woody Harrelson as a twinky loving ass kicking zombie hunter. And that dude from Kick-ass… No Super-Bad… Wait ummm oh! The Social Network kid. Surprise cameo by Bill Murray.
Shaun Of the Dead
SHAUN OF THE DEAD! I love British humor. So they would rather spend their last days at the pub, drinking pints and playing pinball. Would make for an awesome film. I’m waiting for part 2.
Planet of the apes
Planet of the Apes “Get your paws off of me you damn dirty Ape!”
I would suggest every, “Planet of the Apes” ever made… except for the one with Mark Wahlberg… could have been better.
