Movie Reviews: Z For Zachariah + To Brave Alaska + 2 others

Z For Zachariah (2015)
The last woman on Earth is not alone. Based on the teen post-apoc novel this stars Margot Robbie and Chris Pine. John, an angry gun toting man shows up and gets sick from bathing in contaminated water. Ann (Robbie) has to care for him in the valley which protected her family farm from the apocalypse. Ann is alone. Her family went to look for other survivors and never came back.

John helps her but he also plays with guns. Ann fishes and swims and shows off her shaved legs. He plans to make a water wheel. There are chickens, a looted store and the man gets drunk and angry and wants to repopulate with Ann. He manipulates her. Then another survivor Caleb (Pine) shows up.

Did John kill Ann’s brother who left the valley never to return? Caleb (Pine) talks of another town with survivors. People discuss fallout but was there a war? If so who attacked? There are wild turkeys. Both men want Ann. What happened to the dog? This is very different to the book. What happened to Caleb? This was okay.

Best Lines:
“Your wagon thing.”

“Burn my clothes, my body too if I die.”

“That was our duty.”

“They died out.”

To Brave Alaska (1996)
A couple (Alyssa Milano and some dude) struggle to survive in the Alaskan wilderness after some ill-conceived life choices. This was okay.

The Chase (1994)

Idle Hands (1999)
