The very best disaster, apocalyptic & post-apocalyptic movies to watch during self-isolation to keep you entertained and get you thinking.
Wake up at 8am. Home workout at 9 am. Netflix until 10pm. Repeat until further notice.
I don’t need to explain how things are getting a tad repetitive. There are those of us who can’t work and those of us who work from home. Those of us who can get outside once a day and those who cannot go out at all. Either way, the tick of the clock has never seemed to tock so slowly and we find ourselves having all that time we’d previously wished for. But now what to do with it?
We can’t go shopping, sign up for that improv acting course, or hang out with our friends, so we have to seek other ways to keep ourselves busy and entertained.
An obvious method is hitting the screen (not literally), but turns out even the series we’ve been meaning to binge-watch can get monotonous.
But there are plenty of self-isolation movies to watch to fill our time with, it’s just about finding the best and most relevant ones to us.
It ultimately comes down to your genre preference, but if you love horror and catastrophe films as much as I do, but also tend to let your mind wander about how crises come to be and where they could very well be heading, you’ll most likely enjoy disaster, apocalyptic & post-apocalyptic movies.
They’re action-packed, fantastical, highly entertaining watches about global catastrophes that threaten to eliminate mankind – some improbable, some maybe not… If the idea of this dampens your spirit I suggest waiting for next week’s post about best movies to watch during self-isolation that’ll boost morale, but what I like about these films is, despite their extreme and sometimes unrealistic events, they look at relevant issues we are facing in this day and age and remind us to think about the ways the in which we cause our planet harm. We’re encouraged to consider this and how we can make positive changes for the greater good.
