    Skyline, Pandorum, Resident Evil was pretty good. Pitch Black and the Chronicles of Riddick, maybe more of a thriller but still good. Enemy Mine I thought was a great movie for a low budget film.

    "The Road" with Viggo Mortensen was really good.

    Thanks. I've always wondered
    About the road. I was afraid it was
    Gonna be a boring movie but I keep hearing it's good. I watched a movies called the divide it was ok to me but I think some people might find way more interesting than me.

    Escape from la was actually the inspiration for creating the metal gear solid video games if y'all aren't to old to know what that is :p

    How about the mob at Obama's Inauguration speech. A premonition of things to come. :eek:

    I've always been a fan of "world war z" by max brooks. The book is eerily realistic. Mr brooks really thought it out well...
    "day by day Armageddon" (another book) was pretty good, not great, but worth the read.

    "American apocalypse" (book also) is a fresh take, focusing on economic collapse as the harbinger instead of zombies. And that was cool, but by book 2 it gets a little... Fantastic? (as in unbelievable fantasy....)

    Movie-wise, I haven't seen a good one since "book of Eli" and "contagion" both which crap out in the third act...

    "Carriers" was pretty good for a movie that went straight to DVD.

    It is a virus movie with a different feel than Contagion because it feels more like it would be a zombie movie. It has Chris Pine in it.

    Any list like this should include Omega Man one of the original versions of I am Legend, with Charlton Heston. Great movie. I believe there was another version of this movie in addition to the Will Smith I am Legend as well.

    Omega man is cool though. And since Heston is in the brain; how about the original Planet of the Apes!!
