In order starting with my favorite (and I’m cheating massively with this list by putting films together that are part of a series). 😉
1. Alien & Aliens
(I love them all but especially love Dawn Of The Dead, which is one of my all-time favorite movies in general)
(Yeah, I have a thing for this film for some strange reason. Especially the music in it. And the shower scene…)
(That’s right. Not that horrible Hollywood film. Ugh. The BBC series was a much better adaptation of my favorite book.)
(Spoiler! Screw it. It’s old. Everyone has seen it.)
Night Of The Comet
Dawn Of The Dead (2004)
I Am Legend
An explanation of this list:
This was much more difficult than I thought it would be. I love apocalyptic (& post-apocalyptic) films. I don’t know why but I’ve always been drawn to them. I made the mistake of discussing this list with my hubby and we ended up arguing over ones that he insisted are NOT apocalyptic.
After spending way too long discussing it, I decided to just go by this list of what’s considered an apocalyptic film according to Wikipedia. And two we disagreed on (WALL-E & Alien/Aliens) are on the list. So, nyah! I win. I’ve included them.
There are some that are iffy, like The Omen. Not in the Wikipedia list so I’ve left it out although I’d consider that to fit their criteria of a “prelude to such an end”. And there are others I thought might be considered apocalyptic but are really dystopian (turns out I like a lot of those as well so I’ll do a list of that at some point too). And I’ve now spent way too long thinking about this… So, bye. 🙂
