(Well..for the asteroid that will not hit us, according to NASA)
Celebrate with these movie and books:
The Last Policeman
While it could have read like a conventional police procedural, Ben Winter's awesome crime book also had an added element of danger: the impending collision of an asteroid that may foil anyone's crime-solving enthusiasm... Read it before the next time DA14 enters into the orbital tract
As you're biding your time before the next real asteroid collision, watch this crappy movie and remind yourself that impending apocalyptic doom can offer campy euphoria!
Unprepared for the sheer Michael Bay-esque cheesiness, watch Nostalgia Chick's mocking review instead!
Life as We Knew It
While this story is mostly about the highly improbable of the moon (hearkening to the terrible Time Machine film from nearly a decade ago), this book does a great job fashioning a highly believable story about the human face of apocalyptic disaster.
|Help me! This movie is trapping me in the mire of its own self-aggrandized pretensions....|
Watch with either awestruck horror or pure, diabolical laughter as Melancholia commits suicide. When the world ends, shut off Mozart, stop reflecting on any meaning in life, and make a tepee out of sticks...The movie is about to do something unprecedented: Commit Suicide!!
When you're laughing at this film.. Beware of Mr. Mcnitpick...
|"How dare you make fun of this poignant masterpiece?"|
