If you were going to put together an apocalyptic film festival, what movies would be essential?

~You are a *Taverner*.
Sometimes patrons want to go where everybody knows their names, though it helps when half of them are named John. When people want to celebrate, or commiserate, they gather to your establishment. You provide the atmosphere, the warmth, rum, and even an ear to bend. Did I mention the rum? Years before the language will be mangled with terms like facilitator and networking and interpersonal communication, you've overseen it all, and broken up a few bar fights, to boot.~

Batman & Robin.

Not a post-apocalypse movie, but more a sign of the end of OUR world.

Red Dawn.
The Road.

You see, I want to bring the mood down. It's all a bit jaunty at the moment.

So I give you a triple bill where the descent towards death and desolation is inexorable.

On the Beach
The Road
When the Wind blows.

Okay based on what has been suggested, if I was ACTUALLY going to have a Apocalyptic Film Festival my list as of now is (still in need of editing, and could happily be added to) is, in no particular order:

Dawn of the Dead (the old one)
Dawn of the Dead (the new one)
28 Days Later
Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind
The Road
Children of Men
Shawn of the Dead
Waterworld
The Postman
The Last Man on Earth
Omega Man
I am Legend (the new one, but with the good ending)
Terminator
Wall-E
Last Night
Planet of the Apes (the old one)

Hello! Smile Thanks for the welcome!

Okay you guys. I'm having friends over to start watching apocalyptic movies. Then, after every one, I may wander on here to post my thoughts. I'll tell you what we're watching and when so you can play too if you want to.

This Saturday we're starting with Planet of the Apes (Charlton Heston version).
