    Red Dawn - While not true post Apocalyptic, it is a great SHTF movie & did show the complete breakdown of everything in society that we hold dear.

    +1 on Resident Evil Apocalypse. Mad Max started it all.

    I am Legend makes me angry...and so does Omega man.


    They are both based on the same book called

    "I am Legend."

    Very good read....it's where zombie movies came from and the creatures are nothing like the movie I am Legend things....they speak and act human.

    I'm gonna have to say it (I can get away with it cuz I have kids)

    Wall-E (the pixar movie)

    It didn't involve war but it was still a kind of post-apocalypse type setting.

    Thunderdome was horrible, but one cannot add Mad Max as Post Apocalyptic, because the "end" had not yet come and had taken place somewhere after Max and before Road Warrior.

    Dammmmmmmmmmmmit! I forgot to add that one to the "choke yourself" category along with the Postman! Haaa:D

    Too funny. I did like the Valdez ref in the movie though, pretty creative.

    Most of the greats have been listed but would "The Day After Tomorrow" count? Not so much a post-apocalyptic movie but falls under the category of an end of the world type scenario.

    I would say:

    28 days/weeks later

    George A. Romero's zombie flicks (night/dawn/day/land of the dead) With a special nod to the original "Night". They're coming to get you Barbra....they're coming to get you....:p

    Planet of the apes (old school version with the great Mr. Heston, NOT the crappy Tim Burton remake...it's too bad about that too. I would like to have seen updates to all of the "Apes" films.) plus the sequels.

    Mad Max (of course) plus the sequels.

    Speaking of I am legend, we must not forget "The Omega Man" with Charlton Heston. It was the second film version of that book. Personally I must say that I actually really like the old Vincent Price version (Last Man on Earth) quite a bit....not sure why but it has the most "desolate" feel to it. It sort of makes you feel like you are there.

    The Twilight Zone episode where the last surviving guy just wants to read, and breaks his glasses (Burgess Meredith?).
