Ever since the breakout of Coronavirus, people seem to be losing it. Folks are naming their babies corona, idiots are making ridiculous songs, I think Coronavirus will be on the cover of TIME magazine soon. In the lockdown, millennials are trying to understand what happens in a pandemic, what better option than to watch some entertaining and insightful movies. These movies are trending all over the internet.
I think Contagion is the best movie in understanding the dark scenario of an epidemic. The movie sent chills down my spine. I hope things don’t get much worse, but we have to prepare for anything. Contagion is the guide to survival and a devastating forecast of the future.
28 Days Later
Essentially a zombie movie, but it provided some interesting insight on the post-apocalyptic world after a virus breakout. Directed by Oscar-winning Danny Boyle, 28 Days Later is more of a personal story. Because in the end, it’s all about the ones you love.
Children Of Men
This movie broke my heart but kept me on the edge of my seat. I was so much in pressure all the time, every scene is cringe-inducing. Humanity has lost its ability to procreate, we are on the edge of doom. A brilliant film to make us realize the value of life and both the sides of humanity.
On a lighter note, Zombieland is the perfect franchise to watch when you want to make the best out of this worrisome situation. Action-packed, funny, and a star-studded ensemble. I love both the movies, they will make the time fly by.
