Chad liked that movie.
The end of the world has captivated minds for perhaps most of the 20th century. It’s taken on different visions as to what it would look like to see everything that humanity has gained to be wiped away in the blink of an eye When people think of a post-apocalyptic film, the classics such as Mad Max, Waterworld, and Book of Eli usually come to mind.
