FILMPOCALYPSE! 52 Cinematic Visions Of The End
In glorious celebration of our inevitable demise, Brock Wilbur reviews a different end-of-the-world film for each week of 2012, counting down cinema's history of humanity's finale.
Welcome to FILMPOCALYPSE! 52 Cinematic Visions Of The End.
Be it genius or abysmal, Wilbur explores each environmental catastrophe, plague-like infection, zombie outbreak, alien invasion, biblical prophecy, impending asteroid, and a fair share of "other" cataclysms. Spanning 96 years and a dozen countries, our cultural fears, motivations, and values are never more obvious than in the visual representation of our greatest nightmare.
FILMPOCALYPSE! is a collection of fifty-two reviews, forcing one critic to suffer through the wasteland for our greater good. From the comedic to the emotionally devastating, this is the way the world ends. Not with a bang, but Brock Wilbur.
This collection also features contributions by Kotaku's Lisa Foiles, reviewers from The Junior Varsity blog, an Apocalyptic playlist, and a special introduction by the gamma-powered media studies superhero: FILM CRIT HULK.
