Name that film

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to remember the name of a film I once saw. It was about the world ending (I think the sun was about to explode or something), and showed the last few days of a bunch of different people and how they coped with it.

 

In the end, the world did actually end. I think the last scene had two strangers sat on a roof top drinking together just before the end of the world. Bleak, I know, but I think that's the reason why it lingers in my mind.

 

Anyone got an idea of what the film was? It wasn't a major film, in fact it may have been made for TV. It was a good few years ago, too. Maybe a decade ago in fact.

 

A long shot, I know. tounge.gif

Aaah, I think I know this!

 

I think I might only have seen the last 10 minutes. All the streets are emptying and such, and they're just chilling on the roof. Then it goes really bright.

 

I'm going to have a look about. smile.gif

Nah Andy, there's no meteor or anything.

 

Everybody knows the world is going to end, it's about how people are living their last few hours before the sun ends.

Haha Inferno. I remember watching the first two minutes of that and then these really cheesy titles come up and it says "INFERNO" typed in Pinky Times New Roman font...needless to say I turned off 10 seconds later.

Dude! Awesome movie. I want Karma for this. wink.gif Trust your Canadian filmaker buddy to dig up a Don McKellar classic.

 

Last Night

 

And yeah, Canadian cinema often has that "made for TV" look. I blame the union. tounge.gif

Yay! Thank you! inlove.gif

 

Remind me; The couple at the end who had decided to commit suicide, they decide not to don't they? So they can see what the end is like?

GTA3Freak-2001

Sounds like a movie right up my alley, it also has a theme similar to the TV Movie "On The Beach" where the US and China/Tawain have a nuke firing contest and end up blowing each other up leaving a nice healthy radioactive cloud that is heading for Australia the only country still going. It deals with how they cope knowing the world is essentially ending for humans, the taking of your life etc.

 

While we are here there's a film I don't know the title of, another end of the world scenario where some strange experiment where every human just disappears off the face of the earth. For some stupid reason a small number of humans survive because they were in the process of killing themselves just when things went wrong. I guess because they had near-death experiences where they were technically dead but came back right after the experienment. Rest of the movie is these people wandering around wondering what happened and eventually meeting up. Can't remember anything else. I am not sure but it may have been New Zealand made I honestly can't remember though.

Right, I'm so sure I saw this when I was trying to find out the name of the last one!

 

Once again, I'll have a look around. biggrin.gif

 

I was right, found it!

Good film by the way, I remember asking about that film a couple years ago on here until I found the answer off imdb, promptly ordered it from Amazon watched several times now.

 

Could do with more films like that now, I'm sick of all these Costume Drama's at the moment.
