The Day After Tomorrow

I’ve always been a sucker for those ‘end of the world as we know it, everyone has to work together against all odds’ movies. I’ll never forgot how I felt the first time I saw Red Dawn, and Stephen King’s The Stand was one of the first not-just-for-kids books I read outside of what I was assigned to read in school. The Day After Tomorrow takes place in a world where the Earth has been suddenly thrown into a second ice age and a few small groups of people have to survive in the harsh arctic environment. That pretty much sums it up plot-wise so if that doesn’t grab you, don’t bother seeing it. If that does interest you, it also has some very nice cinematography and special effects (probably mostly the latter) and you can’t beat seeing Los Angeles destroyed in just a few minutes.
