From asteroid to zombies to aliens, film makers have created stories of the end of the world for every scenario. From the funny to the gritty to the clever, these top ten end of the world TV shows and movies are well worth a watch.
The Road 2009 Movie •4/5The movie ‘The Road’ based on the book by the same name is a gritty and at times confronting post- apocalyptic movie that doesn’t pull any punches. It tells the story of an ailing father and his young son, who realising they will not survive the winter where they are, start an arduous journey to the ocean across a ruthless apocalyptic world. Filled with dangers the man and his son face terrifying situations and impossible decisions on their journey south in the hope of survival. ‘The Road’ can at times be hard to watch but is raw in its portrayal of the realities of a world in which society has so completely broken down. It explores the courage of trying to do good and maintain your humanity in a horrendous situation and of the love of a father for his son.
Salvation 2017 TV Show •4/5'Salvation' is a clever series in the sense that it poses complex questions while still maintaining a highly entertaining story line. When a college student discovers an asteroid on a collision course for Earth he teams up with a tech genius to try and devise a way for humanity to survive. The cast and writers of ‘Salvation’ do a great job in creating complex and engaging characters and a story line that will keep audiences guessing. The real stand out for ‘Salvation’ though is the fact that at its core it poses an exploration into humanity and asks the question if you couldn’t save everyone who would you save? What is the public’s right to knowledge? What is the value of a life? And is it worth sacrificing some to save others?

The list of 10 highly anticipated books in 2020 is a diverse to-read list for the whole year, from historical fiction to suspense thrillers and famous sequels.
The Ballad Of Songbirds And Snakes Book by Suzanne Collins •3.3/5Right before The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes is scheduled to be released, on May 19th, the excitement of The Hunger Games’ fans grows all over the world. This spin-off derives from the events that were touched upon so far, and I anticipate that it may be a redemption plot for President Snow, judging on the description. While many fans have been infuriated by Collin’s choice to write about President Snow and not some other character, it doesn’t change the fact that this book is highly anticipated. And will it make you feel sorry for him? It remains to be seen. Nonetheless, it deserves your best shot, and it feels amazing being able to read a new Hunger Games book in 2020.
Cleanness Book by Garth Greenwell •0/5After Garth Grenwell’s debut, What Belongs to You, the writer is back with the highly anticipated follow-up to that book. Set in one of the less-popular capitals of European countries, Sofia, this collection of stories is told from a perspective of an American teacher who changes his life and takes bold steps towards his true desires and instincts - all of that in a noticeably different atmosphere than what you’re used to. The Soviet architecture of Sofia adds a unique touch to this storytelling and enables the writer to take on complicated topics such as cultural exchange in addition to other struggles that he faces. Cleanness refers to the protagonists’ version of his queer, pure love while dealing with controversial topics. The book also sets the ground for future sequels that promise to be as exciting as this one.

We're all stuck at our homes, now is the best time to push your mental limits and question reality. Here are 10 movies that will help you on your journey.
Yellow Submarine 1968 Movie •4.4/5An animation inspired by the songs of one of the greatest bands of all time, what's not to love? Like Fantasia, which also features on this list, Yellow Submarine is regarded as a landmark in animation, cementing it as an art form rather than just children's entertainment. The film follows the Beatles' journey to the bottom of the ocean in a yellow submarine, on a quest to save Pepperland by freeing Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band who have been entrapped by the evil Blue Meanies. The dialogue is filled with puns and jokes about the Beatles as the viewer travels through the brightly coloured undersea world to the iconic sounds of the band that changed the world.
Waking Life 2001 Movie •4.5/5One of the most thought provoking movies ever produced. Waking Life follows the journey of a young man heading towards an existential crisis of epic proportions, first, quietly observing, then later actively participating in conversation as he forms his own ideas. Slowly he (and you) realize that he's living in a perpetual dream state, interrupted only by brief moments of lucidity. The film touches on pretty much every imaginable philosophical question; Free Will, Ethics, Metaphysics, The meaning of life... It leaves you exhausted, as it intended. Shot digitally and animated afterwards, it also has an unfamiliar, almost uncomfortable look which just irks your already over worked mind a bit more.
