10) “Resident Evil”
Director: Paul W.S. Anderson, Stars: Milla Jovovich, Michelle Rodriguez and Colin Salmon
“Resident Evil” was the first of the series, and the best!
Director: Alex Proyas, Stars: Nicolas Cage, Chandler Canterbury and Rose Byrne
Nicolas Cage is a love him or hate him type of actor. Unfortunately, many people hate him which contributed to the critical slaying of this movie. But, trust me – it’s a great movie!
8) “The Day After Tomorrow”
Director: Roland Emmerich, Stars: Dennis Quaid, Jake Gyllenhaal and Emmy Rossum
Director Roland Emmerich owns this list because it’s this genre which he loves. And he does it so great. “The Day After Tomorrow” is an amazing movie with some terrific visuals.
7) “War Of The Worlds” (2005)
Director: Steven Spielberg, Stars: Tom Cruise, Dakota Fanning and Tim Robbins
“War Of The Worlds”, 2005, is probably one of Tom Cruises best films. And the fact that Spielberg Directed it makes it all the better! Must see!!
Director: Danny Boyle, Stars: Cillian Murphy, Rose Byrne and Chris Evans
This movie, probably, hasn’t been seen by MANY people – unfortunately. Cillian Murphy, of “28 Days Later” fame, stars in this movie about a group of scientists going to the moon to “jumpstart” it with the new Captain America, Chris Evans.
Director: Roland Emmerich, Stars: John Cusack, Thandie Newton and Chiwetel Ejiofor
#2 of the top Roland Emmerich Directed “Pre-Apocalyptic” movies of all time is the more recent “2012”! This movie is about the Mayan’s predicition of the end of the world in 2012!
4) “Deep Impact”
Director: Mimi Leder, Stars: Robert Duvall, Téa Leoni and Elijah Wood
This movie was amazing in the 90s as the “other Armageddon”. With a stunning cast, just like its counterpart, this movie was fantastic.
3) “Terminator 2: Judgement Day”
Director: James Cameron, Stars: Arnold Schwarzenegger, Linda Hamilton and Edward Furlong
“I’ll be back”. “Terminator 2” was huge when it came out and still is.
Director: Michael Bay, Stars: Bruce Willis, Billy Bob Thornton and Ben Affleck
“Armageddon” is an amazing movie by Director Michael Bay, the man who Directs the “Transformers” movies and is one of the biggest hard-asses in Hollywood. Bruce ‘John McClane’ Willis stars in this along with a phenomenal cast.
1) “Independence Day”
Director: Roland Emmerich, Stars: Will Smith, Bill Pullman and Jeff Goldblum
Will Smith is one of the biggest movie stars of our generation. Deny it if you want, but whatever this man makes, it makes tons of money – even if they’re not that good. “Independence Day” IS GREAT and if you haven’t seen it yet, you’re really missing out. Oh yeah, this is ANOTHER Roland Emmerich movie!
