There once was a time when the only place you could find filmed post-apocalyptic tales was in theaters or on TV. Silly past! Here in the future, we now have the option to check out web series programming right on the internet! On the last episode of Post-Apodaclypse we covered Bryan Singer's "H+". This week, hosts Tim Watts and Michael O'Connell, along with returning guest Vlado Zeravica, point and click their way through the Tom Hanks-created animated web series "Electric City", as well as the fan-film-turned-web-series "Fallout: Nuka Break", a much-loved independent creation set in the world of the Fallout games. Celebrate the marvels of the modern entertainment age with us!
In a world where none of us can seem to put down our smart phones for fear of being offline, it's not hard to imagine a near future where our smart phones are injected right into our bodies, and where we're all online 24/7. But if we're all online, and someone introduces a virus, does this spell the end of mankind? The Bryan Singer-produced web series called "H+" explores this and many issues of transhumanism and the endgame of man's insatiable hunger for tech. Join hosts Tim Watts and Michael O'Connell and special guest Vlado Zeravica as Post-Apodaclypse plugs in to this exciting and thought-provoking series.
The post-apocalyptic genre has given us many additions to world cinema. And of lot of them stank. And many of them came from the 80's. In this episode of Post-Apodaclypse, hosts Tim Watts and Michael O'Connell join special guest Ken Wood to explore two such cult classics - the Italian-produced She (featuring Sandahl Bergman, best known as Arnie's warrior woman in Conan the Barbarian) and the all-American film Steel Dawn (starring the late Patrick Swayze and the late Brion James). Prepare yourself for lots and lots of swords.
The post-apocalyptic film genre doesn't often get the big budget/big name treatment in Hollywood. In the 1990's, one man set out to change that. His name was Kevin Costner. In 1995 he birthed Waterworld, which, due to many unfortunate factors, became (at that time) the most expensive film ever made. He followed this up in 1997 with The Postman (based on the novel by David Brin), which failed to deliver at the box office. Join Tim Watts, Michael O'Connell and guest Ken Wood as they break down and discuss both of these Costnerized offerings in this latest installment of Post-Apodaclypse.
