Damn, that movie seems like it will make us all 10x more paranoid.

I don't know about you guys, but after watching that trailer, I want to go stock up on some supplies.

I am not stockpiling any supplies just weapons and ammo.

SOMEONE has to lead the evil scavenger army.

The best way to get over the paranoia is to except the fact that this situation may just happen any day..and to except the reason to prepare..both physicly and mostly mentaly..

ecept the fact you may be in a position to kill or be killed..Could you do it?
we have had it extremely lucky that a war has never been fought on US soil..allot of people have become very complacent..

I thought that there was a civil war in America that killed more Americans than all the other foreign wars put together.

I expect another, except this time it will between many different factions all vieing for power and control of a completely destroyed infrastructure where the living will envy the dead.

I think I sit this one out someplace else. A place with plenty of beer and a beach.

Here is the movie info:

The Road (2009) More at IMDbPro »


www.imdb.com...
A father and his son walk alone through burned America. Nothing moves in the ravaged landscape save the ash on the wind. It is cold enough to crack stones, and, when the snow falls it is gray. The sky is dark. Their destination is the coast, although they don't know what, if anything, awaits them there. They have nothing: just a pistol to defend themselves against the lawless bands that stalk the road, the clothes they are wearing, a cart of scavenged food--and each other.



I forgot...Charlize Theron is starring. Oh yeah baby! I'm in.

Wow between this movie and the 2012 movie both coming out in the fall, we should all be paranoid freaks come winter...

I guess it's good though, the governments are not going to warn people, I so guess the movie industry is taken it upon them selves to open our eyes...

They are doing a good job.

Call me paranoid, freak, whatever, I really don't care. There is a foul wind blowing and it will eventually consume us all. The only way to protect yourself and the ones you love~ is to prepare for the worst. If we get the "best" then we can always laugh and use our stored food and supplies as they are needed in our daily lives~however....if we get the "worst" then at least we have prepared somewhat to stave off hunger and evil. I myself have preached for years to my family and loved ones about the things to come....I am ready are you?

The trailer looks quite interesting, but the book so I have seen told is quite bleak and despairing. Think I'll buy the book and read that before I go see the movie.

Of course, depictions of civilisation's end can either focus on the action of what brings the end about, or it can focus on the human, emotional element. The book I believe focuses on the latter, whereas the film looks to focus on the former.

Here in the UK, I should think that there would be quite a difference between the circumstances in America and those of Britain should our civilisation come to an end through some natural or man-made catastrophe. Although of course, the requirement for the survivors would be the same in both countries, and indeed, on any continent, but I would think that if one was to be a survivor, one would need to have as little contact as possible with other humans until one has got used to the circumstances. This would be far easier to achieve in the larger countries than the smaller ones. I myself would probably head for the Highlands of Scotland, where it would be easy to lose oneself in the areas of desolate expanses there.

How would any of you handle the situation?
