Recommended Movies:



The Andromeda Strain (1971)

Black Hawk Down 

Blast From the Past



City of Ember

Defiance (This movie was based on the book Defiance: The Bielski Partisans by Nechama Tec.)

Doctor Zhivago  

Empire of the Sun  

Enemy at the Gates  

Farewell to the King  

The Flight of the Phoenix (Buy the original version, made in 1965, starring Jimmy Stewart. The recent remake pales in comparison.)

The Great Escape  


I Am Legend (a good remake of The Omega Man)

Jeremiah Johnson  

The Magnificent Seven the American remake of Akira Kurosawa’s Seven Samurai (Shichinin No Samurai)

The Matrix Series (The Matrix/ The Matrix Reloaded/ The Matrix Revolutions)  

The Omega Man (It has far too many 1970s cliches, but still worth watching. More recently re-made as I Am Legend )

Open Range (IMHO, one of the better western films made)

The Outlaw Josey Wales  

Panic in Year Zero (The corny film that first got me thinking about TEOTWAWKI, when I was a lad)

The Patriot  

The Pianist

The Postman (A typically “Hollywood” overblown production, but still a good think piece)

The Quiet Earth

Red Dawn  

The Road Warrior , aka Mad Max movies (Mad Max 2 “The Road Warrior” is by far the best of the three, although Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome has its merits)

Schindler’s List (BTW, it is too bad that Spielberg didn’t show Oskar Schindler arming his Jewish employees–which is what actually happened)

Serenity (I also highly recommend the short-lived cable television series Firefly , from which this feature film spun off.)

Seven Samurai (Shichinin No Samurai)

Shane (IMHO, the best western film ever made)

Soylent Green (This one barely made my list, but you may find it worth watching)

The Terminator movies (Terminator 2 is by far the best, IMHO. (Terminator 3 was a bit lame, but worth seeing if only for the glimpses of “Crystal Peak”.) The television series Terminator – The Sarah Connor Chronicles also has its merits.)

Things to Come (1936)


True Grit  

Victory at Sea (Documentary on World War II.)
