Movies with Environmental & Entertainment Value

Share |

Waterworld The end of the world is a common movie theme, but some movies actually focus on the environmental issues that could devastate us. These movies are good entertainment with a bit of reality behind them:

Wall*E: Set in a garbage-covered version of the Earth's future.

Madagascar: Escape to Africa: When the water supply is threatened, a valuable point is made about preserving nature.

Happy Feet: An important part of the plot involves over-fishing of the penguins' feeding grounds.

Mad Max: This 30-year-old dystopian film predicts the upset of society caused by depletion of oil resources.

Ice Age: The Meltdown: The way it's characters flee melting ice from glaciers parallels what's happening today.

The Day After Tomorrow: Epitomizes the effect of global warming's catastrophic weather.

The Day the Earth Stood Still: The Earth is ordered to be destroyed in order to prevent a catastrophe potentially caused by humans' wasteful, violent ways.

Waterworld: Set in a future where the polar ice caps have melted, resulting in a flooded planet.
