Forgot how good this movie was -- except for unrealistic it is!
I mean, America taken over by right-wing crazies who use 8 as a symbol and are racist, sexist jerks, AND there was a plague? And people are attacking the post office and saying it's useless?
And there were fires and bad weather and all of the birds and insects died, and there were all sorts of diseases since there weren't vaccines? Everyone has to homeschool? And then it all devolved into a mess with right-wing morons fighting for power after everyone died in the pandemic and they're all asking how New York City did, since they got hit hard?
Yeah, like *that* will happen.
So much better than it had to be, and with three strong female characters, it was a hit here. It makes me want to go back and re-read the books. My eight-year-old said he liked it better than "The Wizard of Oz!"
