Apocalyptic films…

Posted on November 25, 2009. Filed under: Film & Tv |

Apocalyptic films are quite big at the moment. Whether it’s machines taking over the world (9) or the world falling apart (2012). Many people enjoy apocalyptic films, which is weird because im sure they wouldnt enjoy the apocalyps happening now. I think that people enjoy them either because they are pessimists and want to see how it will happen or because they enjoy watching the special effects and the many ways the world can end or they just enjoy watching the americans become deceased, demised, dead, pushing up the daisies, gone to meet their maker, die. Apocalyptic films have always been popular, although a lot more of them have come out in the last few years. This is mainly because people believe that the world will end in 2012, this is because the mayan calendar ends in 2012. Film creators have been very creative in coming up with ways that the world will end, for example, The world could get taken over by apes (Plant Of The Apes), Diseases and viruses (I Am Legend), the popular natural disaster’s (2012, Day after tomorrow) and Zombie films could be classed as apocalyptic. Due to the years that the films come out, the apocalyptic idea’s in the films change, such as in the 60’s space was on everyone’s mind, so it spouted films like Planet of the Apes. In the 90’s and early 2000’s viewers enjoyed more fictional apocalyptic films, like zombie movies, whereas now more films are coming out about natural distasters because there is a posibility that it could happen. Film creators are clever in making these films, they always seem to have a group of survivers, this gives the viewers hope that if the apocalypse happens they could survive. Personally i enjoy apocalyptic films, i find it interesting to consider the many ways that the world can end. I also enjoy the special effects added and the ammount of work that goes into making these films believable.
