Post-Apocalyptic movies are the perfect accompaniment to your favorite shows, a new report claims.
The Hill’s post-apocalypse blog, Post-War, recently compiled a list of movies and TV shows that are currently airing that feature soundtracks that can be enjoyed after the credits roll.
Some of the best-known titles include The Walking Dead, The Flash, Homeland, The Leftovers, The Walking Tall, and the new Mad Max movie, which is based on the 1980s Max Brooks novel.
It also includes a selection of documentaries on the topic, including The End of the World: A Novel and the short film The End Game.
“We’ve heard horror stories about post-war movies, and they sound like the kind of thing you would want to watch in the post-9/11 world,” the Post-war section of the blog said.
“They are often set in post-WWII Germany and feature a number of Nazi-era characters.
They are often narrated by a Nazi-obsessed voiceover actor.”
While The Walking Bad and Mad Max are both set in modern-day Germany, Postwar films like The Big Short and The Revenant feature German characters.
“It’s no coincidence that these two films are both prequel to The Big Sick, a 2014 film that focuses on the rise of capitalism and the aftermath of World War II,” the blog’s post said.
“But it’s not only these post-Apocalypse movies that are doing the rounds, it’s also the new generation of pre-apocalypses,” it continued.
“These are the films that promise the next big thing, and have the potential to redefine the way we look at the world and the way our culture is presented.”
One post-War film that’s doing the most in terms of buzz is the film Interstellar.
The film has received widespread critical acclaim for its depiction of the events that followed the Big Bang, which caused the universe to explode.
But a recent review from The Wrap described it as a “truly grim movie.”
“In some ways, Interstellar feels more like a prequel or a sequel than a continuation of the original,” the review said.
The reviews also expressed skepticism about the film’s depiction of a post-World War II future, citing its lack of “a believable sense of what life will be like in 2077.”
“What happens when humanity goes extinct?
Will the aliens be too scared to come back?
Will there be enough of humanity to create a utopia or a dystopia?” the reviewer wrote.
“Or will the human race just die?
It’s a question that will surely have many questions unanswered in 2078.”
