It's the end of the world as we know it, and these are the 10 worst ways the planet's population could face its finalé.
How do you see the future? If you were someone living in the salad days of the '50s and '60s, there were promises of interstellar exploration, flying cars, high tech lifestyles, and meaningful medical breakthroughs. We'd cure all diseases, live like royalty within our own slick scientific reality, and never once worry about modern maladies like hunger, war, or death. This is Utopia, the perfect portrait of a supposed shape of things to come. Yet for every optimist there's an opposite, a pessimistic perspective that's part luddite, part ludicrous. It's not a fear of technology that inspires these people, but where said advances will take us. Eventually, they believe our "U" will turns into a Dystopia, a horrible place where the End Times dictate our destiny.
So within this Judgment Day dynamic, this proposed post-apocalyptic wasteland of warning signs and threats, what would be the worst? Put another way, what would be the best way for a situation set on making humans the last act of a universal staging to work? If movies have taught us anything, it's that there are lots of likely scenarios, from pissed off plant life to thought police persecuting the masses. In all cases, like the one presented in the recently released Warm Bodies (now on DVD and Blu-ray) the once bright future has turned shockingly sour, bringing about a dispirit finalé to our time on the planet. So here, with appropriate cinematic examples, are the 10 Best (or considering the consequences, worst) Post Apocalyptic Future Shock Scenarios in Film. Some may seem similar, but when viewed through both means and ends, the consequences remain dire. Let's face it, we're doomed.
