Thanks for the heads up on Bushwick, watched it yesterday and without any spoilers it had several unexpected plot developments...

Another good one is "Trigger Effect" with Elizabeth Shue, Kyle MacLachlan, and Dermot Mulroney. Lots of layers.

You must be referring to engine/transmission computers. Dont forget in 1974/75 most autos went to solid state electronic ignition (AKA Transistors) and an EMP would destroy a solid state ignition module which would completely disable the auto. So just because the car is running a carburetor doesnt mean its immune to an EMP.

You're right. I was never much for Elizabeth Shue, but I was drooling through that whole movie. She was gorgeous in that.

They're illegal here." Although, an invading force would have easily determined the opposite just by looking at crime statistics, in spite of official firearm restrictions.

The movie illustrates the sobering fear an invader would have of "a rifle behind every blade of grass". They attacked Bushwick because they thought there wouldn't be armed resistance. The movie shows how a population with even just small arms would make things difficult for an invading force, foreign or domestic. It would be a considerable deterrence in any war room deliberation. The very reason the 2nd Amendment was put in place.

I was initially surprised that the movie got generally bad reviews, until I read beyond the title lines and found that the complaints were typical SJW horseshit, such as "it only had white people as the protagonists", and that people of color were stereotypically shown as thugs and criminals. I guess they didn't take a minute to delve into the history of Bushwick to find that it was the hardest hit during the looting and riots of the 1977 New York blackout.

Thanks for the recommendation.

"The Domestics" is an ok movie. Don't spend any money on it, wait until you can see it for free. Millennials surviving shtf, felt like I watched scenes from The Purge, Book of Eli, Beyond the Thunderdome, War of the Worlds, TWD, etc combined into one.

"The Road" and "28 Days Later" are top of the list for me. "Cherry 2000" was pretty good too. Watched it 30 years ago and still remember every scene.

"These Final Hours" hasn't been mentioned yet, but worth a look.

I'll check out "These Final Days", I've seen the other two. I looked for it, are you it isn't "These Final Hours"? I just watched that one, pretty good.

I could see the The Domestics being like that, definitely waiting for free on demand to watch it. "How It Ends" looks pretty promising though.

Watched the movie " Threads" last night. It was the more realistic of many of these types of movies. Not as entertaining, but more realistic.
The closest this nation came to a similar situation was during the 6 day War between Israel, Egypt and Syria and other allies. Israel had to cross the Suez into Egypt to dig out Soviet supplied anti-aircraft batteries. The Soviet Union assembled airborne forces with the stated intent of dropping those forces onto the Israeli army which had surrounded the belt of Egyptian air defence forces. Nixon warned the Soviets that such a move would be followed by the 82nd Airborne Division being drooped onto the Russian forces. Prior to that the 1969 border war between China and Russia (which let shortly afterwards to the recognition of China by the US) was a close one when the invasion of Western China by the Soviet Union was within 48 hours of happening - preceeded by a tactical nuclear missile barrage by the Russians who had assembled 400 tactical nuclear missiles on the border with China.
Scary stuff ............... now part of history - a history that due to strong leadership by the US thwarted nuclear conflicts.

The Survivor Family - Japan gets hit with an EMP. Probably one of the better movies of that type.

Yep. A good, fairly realistic SHTF movie AND she is super hot in it. A good watch. I still have it kicking around here on VHS somewhere...
