bill-swift - December 11, 2012

I don't want to sound like Chicken Little here, but between getting the Oblivion and the After Earth trailers back-to-back today, I'm starting to feel like the post-apocalypse is on its way. Maybe those Mayans knew what they were talking about after all. But then, if they could predict the end of the world with accuracy, why was no one telling them about those Europeans on their way? But that's a conversation for another day.

Point being, we've got the apocalypse on our minds and personally, I'm very curious to know how I'd react in a situation where the world came to an end. Would I be a hero nomad, wandering the streets, protecting the innocent and getting into adventures? Probably not. Most likely I'd be that scavenger creep who lives in a sewage tank and knits his clothes out of human skin. Either way, I'm sure it'll be interesting.

So while we wait for December 21st to come and go like it was Y2K, here's our Ten Favorite Post-Apocalyptic Movies ever!
