10 Movie Characters You Want With You When The Apocalypse Comes
Yes, it’s time to think seriously about who you need on your side when the zombie disease hits/a nuclear blast cripples the infrastructure of the world/climate change finally proves all those sceptics wrong.
The world is ending? Bummer. Its not too late though. As so many films have taught us, from Zombieland to The Road there is always at least one pocket of survivors left. So, lets imagine that you woke up this morning and found that its finally happened. After the first few days of crying and drinking and trying to convince yourself that life sucked anyway, youre going to have to come up with a serious plan. A plan which involves others because, honestly, you dont have the expertise necessary to survive this on your own. Yes, its time to think seriously about who you need on your side when the zombie disease hits/a nuclear blast cripples the infrastructure of the world/climate change finally proves all those sceptics wrong. In those moments, a pistol and a knowing smile just wont cut it (sorry Mr Bond). Were going to need some serious skills to make it through to the finale.
10. Katniss Everdeen The Hunger Games
Lets face it, most of us have no idea how to survive without a supermarket. Not so Katniss. She has survived life in the deeply deprived District 12 where they dont even have a supermarket - thanks to her ability with a bow, and her knowledge of edible plants. This stood her in great stead in not just one, but two rounds in the Hunger Games arena. Its true, Katniss is prone to post traumatic stress, which could be a problem. Furthermore, she isnt always that bothered about others, so if you dont have a sweet kid to wave in front of her, youre going to need to sell the benefits of the position to her. Luckily, Katniss has a history of doing the right thing. Plus, she can take care of herself, so we wont need to divert any of our precious resources into protecting her as she slaughters the remaining creatures.
I'll watch anything, so long as it has a juicy plot, a couple of twists and hopefully a few scares. My favourite films include The Fugitive, The Last Starfighter and The Secret In Their Eyes. Television wise, I'm a big fan of the Nordic Noir, Sherlock and Doctor Who. All the classics!
