The next ice age comes early in “The Day After Tomorrow”

When you decide which movie to watch before the world ends on Friday, Dec. 21, let’s not forget the vast array of apocalypse movies. The best movies made to unsettle you about the possible destruction of Earth are based on actual theories. For this reason, “The Day After Tomorrow,” directed by Roland Emmerich, would be your best choice. This movie finds its origin in the hypothesis brought about by Art Bell and Whitley Strieber’s book “The Coming Global Superstorm.”

The idea presented in “The Day After Tomorrow” is that global warming will backfire and end up causing the next ice age. It follows a family who works to survive the disaster. The father of the family travels across a frozen America to reach his son stranded in New York City while storms appear across the world.

Even though the movie was made in 2004, its special effects are more than believable. For those of you avid about surviving, the movie includes many helpful tips, like how to fend off hypothermia. The acting is also amazing, featuring Jake Gyllenhaal and Emmy Rossum. In my opinion, the only bad thing about this movie is that it makes you feel really cold. This movie makes a great addition to any end-of-the-world survival kit, so make sure to pick up a copy (and maybe a blanket, too).
