Bad Netflix! I just looked and the only one on your list available to stream is Hunger Games, which we've already seen.

The Road

The Crazies - takes place here in Iowa about 30 miles away from me. But alas, nothing exciting ever actually happens here in Iowa.

Idiocracy. I had not heard of it. Its about the world 500 years in the future, "a society so incredibly dumbed-down"
I don't know if I could watch that...I can't bare to see it around me even now.

I did like World War Z. Of course it is far fetched, a 10 second death/zombie virus, but I found it entertaining

How about "Blast from the Past". Sort of a mistaken SHTF movie
Then there is the new "The colony". Terrible cannibal movie.
"After Armageddon"

Not a movie but I just started watching Jericho again on netflix, really wish this one had been picked up by scifi network or someone, great series. Walking Dead and Dawn of the Dead are great too even if they are unrealistic. Red Dawn would have to be on the list too.

Thanks for the recommendation.

Just finished watching it. Interesting movie. Certainly a depressing, yet possible option for our future. Did I mention depressing?!? :D

I wanna be a shovel truck driver! :D

I would recommend not watching "The Road". Depressing is not a strong enough adjective. It will haunt you for a few days afterwards...don't watch.

The Road: Summary of the ENTIRE movie? "Daddy, I'm hungry, where are we going?", "Daddy, I'm hungry, where are we going?", "Daddy, I'm hungry, where are we going?", "Daddy, I'm hungry, where are we going?", "Daddy, I'm hungry, where are we going?", "Daddy, I'm hungry, where are we going?", "Daddy, I'm hungry, where are we going?", "Daddy, I'm hungry, where are we going?", "Daddy, I'm hungry, where are we going?", "Daddy, I'm hungry, where are we going?", "Daddy, I'm hungry, where are we going?", "Daddy, I'm hungry, where are we going?".

I unfortunately read the book. Then saw the movie only because I downloaded it for free, & I couldn't believe it could possibly be as bad as the book. Yet... It was. :| Easily makes my #1 worst film all history.

When I finished reading the book I immediately threw it in the bathroom trash because it didn't deserve the kitchen trash can.

Not really a spoiler because it's the first thing that happens in the movie, but the mom did the right thing by killing herself if she had to be around that damn kid another day!

A Boy and His Dog, with a young Don Johnson. The ending is "unique".

I can't remember the name but one of the best I think is from the 1950s about a family just heading into the California hills to go camping when LA is hit by a nuke.

Omega Man with Charlton Heston was a forerunner of I Am Legend. I think it did better job than the newer version with him surviving in the wreckage of a city.

The Stand by Stephen King was pretty good. The larger theme of good versus evil is blown up into a rgional conflict, but the same principal might apply at a neighborhood level.

I don't think this theme has ever been really well done yet. Lights Out promises to be probably the best effort, when it is released. Most either have a person or small group as the only survivors, or they are surrounding by vampires/zombies/aliens. Neither scenario is very realistic. I good production should explore more of the neighborhood, city, rural dynamics and choices people make. Plus it should explore how different people fare based on fitness, skills, prepped versus not, country versus city, bug in versus bug out.

I forgot about A Boy and His Dog, that was a great movie. The Stand was pretty good but the book is much better, another good King survival themed book is Cell, pretty unrealistic but good none the less.
