Last night while watching the 88th Annual Academy Awards I was inspired to make a list of my own environmentally themed “award winning” movies. Enjoy!
- Best Nature Empowerment Film:
When a fatal airborne pathogen attacks the north east coast of the United States, survivors are forced to flee without knowing what they are running from.
- Best Over Reaction to Global Warming:
In the ultimate disaster film, global warming causes a catastrophic storm that includes tornados, tidal waves, hurricanes, and a below freezing ice storm.
- Best Use of 80′s Popstars to Demonstrate Vigilante Environmentalists :
In this Sci-Fi Channel Original Movie, two super creatures battle it out in the Everglades as a result of misguided actions by an animal activist and a park ranger.
- Best Animated Film Ever:
After being cursed by an demon boar, Prince Ashitaka finds himself caught in a battle between a mining town and the magical creatures in the surrounding forest.
- Best Monster Created by Dumping Formaldehyde Down The Sink:
In this horror film from Korea, a grandfather leads his family to rescue his grand daughter from a strange tentacled beast.
- Best Superhero to Come From Something Radioactive:
This campy classic follows a nerd, who becomes a gross superhero. The Toxic Avenger is a cult classic and inspired 3 sequels.
PS. If you have any environmentally themed movie you would like to share please include them as a comment!
