Post-Apocalypses Are Fun!

This week over at AMC I’m looking at why post-apocalyptic films are such a staple of the science fiction genre — I mean, beyond “because Will Smith really needs to be threatened by virus-laden zombies.” Maybe he does, and maybe he doesn’t. But there’s more to it than that. As always I welcome your thoughts and comments over on the AMC site.

Also in my column I make a general call for topics, so if you’ve ever wanted to ask me about some aspect of science fiction movies, from the movies themselves to the underlying business of how SF/F movies get put together and put out, now’s a good time to shoot me over an e-mail about it. I like taking requests!
