Recently, I've got very keen on post-apocalyptic and dystopian themes in literature and movies. So much that I'm having dreams about it ;)

What do you think about them?

Concerning movies, I don't only mean the most known as Mad Max series, Postman, Waterworld or Equlibrium, etc.
Also low-budget movies like: The boy and his dog, Salute of the jugger (great climate!), even Kubrick's 'Dr Strangelove' has something to do with post-apocalyptic theme ;)

Could anyone recommend something interesting?
It can be anything in the climate. Also tv-series or anime.

But do you want post-apocalyptic action movies? Something like I am Legend?

There's The Road coming up. One of the most depressive, beautiful books I've read, completely post-apocalyptic. I have high expectations for it, hope it turns out well.

Action movies may also be good. However, I don't like zombie-themes. ;)

Haven't read the book, but I'll check it out in near future!

I've got the film, probably I'll watch it tomorrow.

Looking forward to The Road too. Apparently you don't get to know why everything is as it is in the film.

Dredd 2012 ( as opposed to the Stallone abortion from the mid 90's ) is set in a post apocalyptic, dystopian world and is very good. Basicly a violent action movie that fans of the 2000 ad comic ( which I have been since I was a kid ) will love and people who don't know the comic would like if they enjoy carnage.

The movie runs on adrenalin and I'd recommend it.

^^ Saw Dredd, but must say I find it rather average ... Not a bad comic book adaption (loved Lena Headey's role), but not really brilliant either.

Great movies have you recommended him, but I fail to see Lynch's Eraserhead - one of the greatest movies in this niche. A lot of excellent literature in this sphere too, but I'd get offtopic :/

I like Waterworld quite a lot. If you want to know list of all-time great dystopian movies then I think this list sums up pretty much everything about this genre of movies.
