Post apocalyptic movies

Im watching two post-end of the world movies at the moment "the Book of Eli" and "the road" they're both about wanderers in a devastated USA filled with desperate people and lawlessness but they're completely different movies.

Eli is a typical Hollywood movie with guns, girls and fighting. That's Not to say it's a bad movie. It's just a tad predictable.

The road is draws you in and drenches you in feelings of isolation and desperation. The story is more visceral and engrossing and you'll find yourself at times holding your breath with the characters as they hide from roaming gangs.

I highly recommend The Road if you get a chance to watch it.
