If you’re banking on the end of the world being apocalyptic bringing only a few human beings to survival, here are the best post-apocalyptic movies for you.
With the whole pandemic going on and people’s imaginations going wild, watching post-apocalyptic movies has become a popular source of entertainment. While there are multiple movies out there about the end of the world, there’s something really interesting about what happens to those that are able to survive the end of the world and live in the post-apocalyptic era.
Although not all movies noted below are present on Netflix, they are still definitely worth watching. These post-apocalyptic movies have definitely become a huge part of cinema while some have gone and won awards. Make sure to have the best home sound system like the VIZIO SB3651-F6 in order to fully enjoy the movies below either streaming them on Netflix or buying them online.
Here are the 5 best post-apocalyptic movies ever:
- Book of Eli
The Book of Eli follows what would happen in a future where everybody forgot what the past was. Especially what having a religion feels like. A rogue protector of a certain book finds himself intertwined with a group of thugs that are all after that particular book.
- I am Legend
Unlike the other movies in this list, I am Legend shows just how lonely the post-apocalyptic world would be if you were alone. Will Smith, luckily accompanied with his dog, tackles everyday survival along with his dog while the streets are unsafe to roam at night.
- Mad Max
This cyberpunk movie is set in the distant future where steel, oil, and cars are all that’s left of the technologies of our current world. The wild but also very interesting world of Mad Max follows an unnamed character, maybe “Max” suddenly pulled into a plot to save a group of girls which the antagonist uses to breed with. Guns. Gas. Glory. This is what the film is about.
Zombieland takes a more comedic approach to the whole “what would happen if the world were taken over by zombies” idea. The story plot follows a lone survivor who is eventually joined with a few other survivors all trying their best to look for a better place and survive being overrun by zombies.
This is the most classic franchise within the list that although isn’t technically post-apocalyptic, has a very similar feel. The movie franchise covers what would happen if the past was altered and to do so, a robot from the future comes to the past in order to stop an attack of the machines all controlled by an AI network called Skynet.
To enjoy watching the 5 best post-apocalyptic movies to the maximum, it pays to have a good TV like the Sony X750H 65-inch 4K Ultra TV or maybe even a projector like the BenQ TK850 True 4K HDR-PRO Projector. Projectors make the viewing experience even more fun for friends or family by giving the cinema-like experience at home. What better way to watch post-apocalyptic movies than on the big screen.
