@Phairnix Mm, Snowpiercer is on my list to go watch sometime. Might bump it up a bit higher in my list now.
Not exactly a post-apocalyptic series, but possibly very dystopian as it's something that can have happened now as result of terrible choices made in society: Squid Game. The debts situation is very much a reality in South Korea, the rest in this series is just cool to watch.
@trinsec Yeah, I have seen the hype around the Squid Game series, but have not seen any episode yet. Thanks for the recommendation.
Generally, I don't like to watch series that much, as they can create a long term attachment. Film series can be great though. For example, I really enjoyed the new Planet of the Apes movies, apart from the unoriginal remake.
@Phairnix Yeah, I watched Squid Game before it became a hype. A week later I saw all about it on the news, which amused me.
Nowadays series are a lot shorter than back then. I'd be happy if a season lasts more than 10 episodes, less episodes seems to be the norm lately. I think long term attachment is alright in this case. ;)
I gather you probably already saw Mad Max, as that's kinda the default I think of when anyone mentions dystopian post-apocalyptic movies. ;)
@trinsec Yep, I have seen the Mad Max films and they the scenario is most certainly the most popular one that seems to come to peoples mind. I think Fury Road was way more enjoyable than the older ones. I rewatched the the series, as I barely remembered the older ones, and I had not seen the first one at all, which turned out to be the worse one, in my opinion. To be honest, I found Mel Gibsons acting quite lame. He's an idiot anyway, so I am quite happy that Fury Road became the best one.
Speaking of which, I happened to watch an other australian film recently: Wyrmwood. I liked the somewhat fresh take on the zombie genre. Those kind of movies can be rather repetitive, as it is mostly the same setting: virus infects mankind, the dead rise, survival begins. So it really comes up to the details and the social commentary of the circumstances. Recently, I am going through the George Romero classics. Today, Dawn of the Dead it is.
