More Cli-Fi Films for Your Viewing Pleasure

With the summer movie season officially kicked off, I thought I could share a few movies that I know of with themes of climate change and its effects.

Godzilla vs the Smog Monster (Godzilla vs. Hedorah) (1971)

GODZILLA-VS-THE-SMOG-MONSTER

Watching Godzilla fight a monster created due to human carelessness and pollution? Do you need any more reason than that?

Mad Max (1971), Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior (1981), and Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome (1985)

Mel Gibson in Mad Max 2.

 

Once again, humanity in its unfaltering stupidity has ruined the environment with war and pollution creating a world that’s a deserted wasteland. As everyone struggles to survive with oil being the main commodity, Max wanders the landscape fighting for himself and others.

Also, Mad Max: Fury Road comes out in the next few days… Just saying.

Judge Dredd (1995) and Dredd (2012)dredd

Like in the Mad Max films, the word in these films is a desert wasteland that humanity created with only a few Mega-Cities keeping everyone in. This creates more crime than can be handled, but humanity is left to deal with the consequences.

These are just a few off the top of my head. I’ll post more if I can think of any.
