    Post-Apocalyptic Movie Marathon Time!

    While we're all forced to hunker down while we wait this whole thing out, what better time to watch some good old post-apocalyptic films! Tonight, I'm introducing my wife to one of my all time favs, Mad Max. Let's work together on a proper viewing list. What're your favs? Post em' up! Also add what streaming source you're finding it on if not DVD/BD.

    Mad Max - 1979:
    https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0079501/
    Personally I'll be watching my own physical copy, but it's also available to rent on Amazon for a couple bucks : https://www.amazon.com/Mad-Max-Mel-G...dp/B000IZ3OYQ/ or on Hulu with a Showtime sub apparently.

    The movie "The Road" is my benchmark for depressing, post apocalyptic movies.

    Lars Von Trier's Melancholia is about the end of the world. It's so bleak but also well done (7.2 imbd) that you'll wish you could forget it but won't be able to. It captures today's mood. Fair warning, it starts out slow and if you're suffering from depression then ending it all will seem like a reasonable thing to do... so maybe not recommended.

    Shute.

    I agree.

    My father made me read the book as a kid before letting me see the movie.

    It's a damn good film though.

    I need to go to Utah.
    Utah?
    Yeah, Utah. It's wedged in between Wyoming and Nevada. You've seen pictures of it, right?

    So after 15 years we finally made it to Utah.....


    Thanks BCSAR and POWMOW Ski Patrol for rescues

    Yes. I think The Road is one of the few stories where it doesn't matter if you read the book first or see the movie first - they both deliver and they don't spoil each other.
