While I don’t watch nearly as many movies today as I used to, I do greatly enjoy munching popcorn while I watch the end of the world from the comfort of my couch. Here is a small smattering of those movies I particularly enjoyed. I’d love to hear your own favorites as well. Leave your top ten or whatever in the comments below.
Night of the Comet — a total guilty pleasure of mine, I freely admit. Zombies run amok in the late 1980s, complete with Valley Girls, mall hair, and pastel prints.
Red Dawn — I saw this when it first hit theaters and couldn’t possibly count how many times since. While there is a remake in the works, there is no way it could hold up to this classic.
The Day After — this miniseries scared the pants off of me when it aired. I was 12 at the time and couldn’t look away for even a second. It holds up surprisingly well almost 30 years later.
Road Warrior — there’s no way this list could be complete without Max making the cut.
2012 — I know lots of folks hated this movie but I really enjoyed it. But, I am also a fan of John Cusak so that might account for some of it.
The Day After Tomorrow — again, not a lot of people count this as a favorite but I liked it a lot.
Resident Evil — I really like this series overall, though the second film is my favorite thus far.
The Walking Dead — I love, love, LOVE this series and am anxiously awaiting the second season later this year.
Zombieland — Just loads of good fun.
So, what are your favorites?
