Nafissa Jeetoo gets ready for the apocalypse by looking at ways the world might end according to the movies...
December 21st 2012, the last day on the Mayan calendar. It seems the apocalypse is now. But what is an apocalypse meant to be? We live our lives in fear of death, danger and doomsday, but when D-day has allegedly arrived what are we actually meant to expect? I haven’t seen anybody from the Mayan civilisation recently, or ever, so why are we waiting for something many of us do not understand? Surely if the end of a calendar means it is the end of the world, then why have we survived so many New Year’s Eves?
As I hold my breath, ponder these unanswered questions, and look out for spaceships, giant creatures and cyborgs, it has come to my attention that I cannot provide a short list of ultimate ‘End of the World’ movies. »
