Has anyone seen the new trailer for 'The Road', looks post apocalyptic from the brief view on TV. Is this going to be the grandaddy of all years for these films. Look out 2012 here we come. P r e p a r e, p r e p a r e, P R E P A R E !!!.

"The Road" is a post-apocalyptic film based on the book by Cormac McCarthy (No Country for Old Men, All the Pretty Horses, Blood Meridian).

The book is actually pretty good, although has a somewhat odd writing style. It is all about the connection between a man and his son while trying to stay alive after the apocalypse in a world where nothing grows anymore. Throughout the book, there are several hints about what happened but he never really explains what apocalyptic event took place.

Saw 2012

Saw the movie. It was terrible. Special effects were good, but the basis of the movie B-A-D. They did destroy Washington D.C. and Hollywood which is a plus in any disaster movie. Kill the commies where they live. But, all that aside it has nothing to offer for a prepper except maybe have a lot of money. On a side note I felt like a hypocrite after seeing Danny Glover in the movie, after all he hates capitalism, freedom and supports Chavez. I don't think he works for free. I hate supporting people like that. Sean Penn, Jane Fona, Alex Baldwin, etc. Now I will get off my soap box and go hide in my basement. :)

NaeKid, just watched the trailer, looks like a great film. I always think about the stuff that is left everywhere when a disaster strikes, there is just worthless meaningless stuff everywhere. Stuff that people thought was so important. It's just yours to pick up and disguard as you go down the road.
