    Would a shopping cart be the most realistic? They are everywhere but they aren't good and if everyone is dead you can loot anything you like, bicycles would be a better idea and you can potentially get away from some dodgy encounters

      The shopping cart would help them carry more stuff, and I forget when they started wandering but he might have been able to put the kid in it when he was smaller.

      shopping cart wheels fricking suck and would only work on flat surfaces. they could loot one of picrel's from any home depot or hardware store and be much better off.

        They were hiding out for much of the early stages of the apocalypse, things like that would have been looted away already.

      I know if there is an apocalypse and I need a shopping cart I'm going to avoid Walmart's because they fricking suck. Every other one either has a wobbly wheel, a jammed wheel, or a squeaky wheel. Wd-40 will be like gold for the poor fricks stuck with one of those.

      This, Threads is just pure misery porn that gets somehow more and more depressing every scene. I want to highly recommend it if you haven't seen it but at the same time you won't enjoy it.

        threads by far, the road is up there too.

        also the play endgame by samuel beckett isn't "realistic" per say but i feel like it does a really good job of representing how it would be for people to live together in a fallout shelter or something

        It's a weird mix of a movie and documentary, it follows some characters after global nuclear war in England but it's disturbing realistic and more a timeline spanning 30 or something years from the blast to rebuilding society, don't watch the trailer it doesn't do it justice just immerse yourself in the misery

    The Road is unrealistic bullshit. Post-apocalyptic setting is unrealistic bullshit.
    First of all, you need to come up with some bullshit calamity event that destroys regular society but also doesn't kill all humans, that's never going to happen. Like in The Road, where all animals and plants were killed. In realistic circumstances, either humans would die from the same cause and none would be alive to make a post-apocalyptic movie about it, or only SOME species of plants animals were killed and we still have sources of food, albeit limited.
    Second, society is never going to break down to base survival elements the way dumbfrick movies make it. Humans are fricking awesome, they're incredibly social animals who can easily learn and adapt. Human society would immediately re-organize to deal with whatever calamity is thrown at them if they survived it, there won't be any of this man with dog, man with son/daughter alone bullshit. You will almost 100% certainly be living in a big community within weeks of whatever caused the apocalypse.
    Unless you know of a post-apocalyptic movie where humans actually got their shit together and survived the apocalypse with no problems, then it's not realistic. Only thing that could marginally fit this is "The Leftovers" I think but even that has a lot more panic than necessary.
    The movies are just fantasies of lonely morons who "wish" we'd go back to a time of individualism or some moronic shit like that.

        Nukes have been used IRL and that didn't come close to happening.

      One of the downsides with the movie is that they don't really capture just how toxic the air is because I guess they didn't want the actors wearing masks the whole time. But the ashes from all the burning forests would have made it really shitty. I mean just being out with the smoke from the forest fires on the west coast in 2020 really sucked because I was working outside during that and everyone got pretty bad coughs after a few days.

        pretty sure the dad and the boy were coughing up a storm most of the movie while they were outside, even one of the cannibals was wearing a rebreather in the truck scene. i dont know how long the air would be fricked for but i assume a good while after shit goes bad

          I think the setting was basically massive volcano eruptions and then the trees died causing massive forest fires over time and most of the cities probably burned too. So it was just a downward spiral. The book did talk about thunder storms causing fires with all the dead trees.

            The massive volcano eruption (implied to be Yellowstone) would have caused enough ash to block out the sun which wouldn't burn the trees but kill them through lack of light. But the other anon is right that the air would be unbearable.

    If we're talking only about the total collapse of society? unironically, The Postman. Pretty much just 17th century USA with modern tech minus functioning infrastructure. Small communes of people fighting over resources and power.

    If the ecosystem completely collapses? The Road.
