    In the light of what is going on here and around the world we might be looking for suggestions for films about seeing out extreme situations.


    I'd suggest 'Stalingrad'


    Anything better?

    seeing that we're living through a type of sci-fi movie senario....i think the likes of Outbreak, Contagion and Pandemic are apt

    For a .. slightly different perspective: Right at Your Door (2006)

    Very underrated little film. And quite scary.

    My suggestion is "Bad Boy Bubby"

    The Divide seems to eh....divide people a lot but I thought it was really good.

    I thought Contagion was a very watchable film made.all the better by the current world I'd imagine


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,896 ✭✭✭ joeguevara


    66 days. Movie about Bobby Sands. Shows you can last 2 months without grub or bog roll. Lessons could be learned by panic buyers.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,335 ✭✭✭ rockatansky


    Mentioned a few times above but Contagion is a must. Watched it last night again, scary how close it is to what we are seeing today.

    A few Zombie flicks will be getting watched too, Train to Busan and World War Z.

    Night of the Living Dead

    (you can imagine what it will be like when you're hunkered down with the only toilet paper supply in the neighbourhood and infected people are trying to get in)

    The Carpenter film was the first remake :) 1951 was the first version all but directed by Howard Hawks and credited to Christian Nyby
