    I'm assuming that by 'nuclear war movies' we're talking about ones where nukes get launched during the movie, as opposed to the post-apocalyptic aftermath (cuz if the latter was the case I'd pick "A Boy and His Dog")
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    Dr. Strangelove. I saw bits and pieces of the The Day After. As for the rest of the '80's the-Russians-Are-Coming, I was too busy doing other things.
    When did I go from Luke Skywalker to Obi-Wan Kenobi?

    Dr. Strangelove is the best. I don't think we can count War Games and some of the others. They never launched.
    I don't pretend to understand Brannigan's Law. I merely enforce it.

    Terminator 2 the coolest one with a nuclear explosion in it.
    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?
