The Twenty-First Century

The Road [2009]

 “I told the boy when you dream about bad things happening, it means you’re still fighting and you’re still alive. It’s when you start to dream about good things that you should start to worry”.

I’ve had enough of post-apocalyptic movies. The only one I really enjoyed was “The Last Man On Earth” starring Vincent Price. In “The Road”, a father and his young son survive the apocalyse, but the world is now basically empty, and they must struggle to survive. Does anything interesting ever happen? not really. But it’s still entirely watchable with good performances all around especially Robert Duvall who is almost unrecognizable as a dying old man.
