The year after next is looking grim…

Advantages: Enjoyable film, decent blu-ray
Disadvantages: Film is also cheap and silly

This 88 Films Blu-ray only costs about £10 at the moment on amazon and at HMV. Post-apocalypse films were big in the 70s and 80s. The Cold War loomed large, and while 70s films tended to be a bit more bleak and depressing, by the 80s things had lightened ...

The stars are clear. The planets shine.

Advantages: Quite amusing in places
Disadvantages: A bumbling mess of a film, a poor blu-ray

We Had 20 Years to Prepare...But So Did They...And On Blu-ray
