Let me list down seven movies I believe are worth watching and give you some insights, instead of the swarms of zombies and dark forces trying to invade the world to its end.
Planet of the Apes (1968)
This is probably the best of the Apes series aired in 1968 – 1973. The screenplay was started by Twilight Zone’s Rod Serling, who was later joined by Michael Wilson for revisions.
In the movie, human explorers found their space ship smashed into a planet ruled by chimps. It wasn’t until the very last scene when Taylor (Charlton Heston) uncovers the Statue of Liberty. Apparently, they were just on Earth the entire time and that the human race, using atomic weapons, annihilated the world.
Young Ones (2014)
This movie depicts the United States in the middle of an almost unlivable drought, where water supply was rare for everyone except to a fortunate few, the “watermen.” In the hopes of creating a water system, Ernest Holm (Michael Shannon) refused to leave their farm with his family.
Watch how the family struggled and what made them live, if they did.
Z For Zachariah (2015)
Based on a novel under the same title, this movie shows a radioactive version of an apocalypse. Ann (Margot Robbie) survives through the valley where she lives. Nature saved her, and apparently, two others.
The Terminator Franchise (1984, 1991, 2003, 2009, 2015)
The United States creates an artificial intelligence network called Skynet, which was originally intended as a defense mechanism. This unit later becomes the Terminator that attempts to annihilate the humanity.
Children of Men (2006)
Imagine a world where there are no more human offspring. This movie depicts how several men rescued a woman who miraculously bears a child, when all women are doomed barren.
Humans did their best to save the Earth from climate change to no avail. The failure resulted in a lethal ice age, which killed everyone except the passengers of the Snowpiercer, a specially designed train.
This Is the End (2013)
This movie changes the tone of an Armageddon. Actors play characters as themselves in a comedy that includes scenes by Rihanna and Emma Watson. James Franco invites friends over to a house party when the end of the world begins.
