James Rummel has a post listing and describing what he considers to be the best movies in the post-apocalyptic genre. We've previously discussed the literature (as has James), so let's consider the cinema. These are his picks:
1. Mad Max 2:The Road Warrior (1981)
2. A Boy and His Dog (1975)
3. Wizards (1977)
4. Planet of the Apes (1968)
5. The Omega Man (1971)
6. Logan’s Run (1976)
You can read the post for James' arguments for each of these movies. Although I enjoyed Planet of the Apes and Logan's Run, none of these movies really grabbed me. I guess I prefer to read the genre, rather than watch it, because of the greater development available in long fiction.
What post-apocalyptic movies do you like?
