My Favourite Disaster Movies

So it’s that time of the month again and because I missed out on last month I’m trying to get my entry in as early as possible! I’m a pretty bit movie nut so when it comes to contests like these it makes it so tough to pick my favourite but I guess that’s what it’s all about

Apocalyptic movies have always been a favourite of mine along with space travel! It often is more deep than just trying to survive but poses so many questions and is often a reflection of society as it is now but put in extreme hardship and how we would fair.

So what are my favourite disaster movies? Lets dive in and find out, shall we?

This is my entry into this month’s Top 3 contest.

This months topic is ENTER TOPIC HERE

My Nominations are:

Nomination Number One

Cloverfield - IMDB - 2008

My Reasons for the Nomination

The movie is a solid 12 years old now I came across it coming home one night and I couldn’t sleep turned on the TV just in time to catch this one that became a cult hit in many circles! Disaster movies were sort of on hold for many years after 9/11 so this one coming out was a surprise and actually laid the foundation for plenty of movies in the genre to kick off.

Why I liked this movie is because it wasn’t about the monsters or the alien invasion but people trying to survive a city under attack! The movie is shot in the first person view with one person video taping everything that is happening

The story in itself is pretty basic, people living their life, city gets attacked by aliens, military come in, chaos ensues, try to save your loved ones

But this was a fresh take on the genre, on how far you are willing to go to save someone! How you think when you’re scared or your time is limited!

How various people react to an outside threat and is need for survival and trying to remain humane in the process still possible

Nomination Number Two

The Core - IMDB - 2003

My Reasons for the Nomination

This movie can be a little corny and campy at times but it's still highly enjoyable and is a comment on how we as people would destroy ourselves by trying to destroy each other.

The core is all about how conflict can only make things worse and that sometimes trying to outsmart one another only leaves us all in a precarious situation.

The movie centres around what would happen if the earths core stopped functioning and the quite balance between many of the earths forces start to get out of wack.

Nomination Number Three

World War Z - IMDB - 2013

My Reasons for the Nomination

This wouldn't be a disaster list without a zombie movie and while there are so many to choose from I think World War Z is by far my favourite. It takes a more grounded take on the genre and flips the concept of darwinism on its head.

The world is now overrun by zombies, far more than humans can deal with and without a cure there is no hope as our cities become overrun by mindless flesh eating creatures.

It puts a real twist on the strongest of us will survive and how we as a society should embrace all our genetic differences, as it makes us stronger as a whole.
