Poetics of the End
Loved the movie. Saw it Christmas day. Thought it truer to how things will turn out in the end. Will God come to the rescue? Never has before. Will human nature save the world? Don't think so given what's going on in the world today. The cause of the end of the world very likely? What do you think when global military spending is over 1 1/2 trillion dollars and America's is over 600 billion? The only false note in the movies is the shortage of bullets. In the U.S. there are 90 guns for every 100 people, and hundreds of bullets for each gun.
How did you think the world would end? Most likely it will end with a bang, then screams, then whimpers and more bangs. Will the good guys win? Probably not since they were not able to prevent the bad guys from ending the world before its time. Merry Christmas.
Wow! Just in time for the holidays! This movie goes from BLEAK to BLEAKLY-BLEAK before the movie is half-way done. While I've always enjoyed the last-man-on-earth scenario, I have noticed they all have this one thing in common: they don't know how to end them. Settling for a half-baked ending probably works just fine here since you probably got up and left the theater long before it.
