"Once upon a time, in the magical land of Equestria...
…there came an era when the ideals of friendship gave way to greed, selfishness, paranoia and a jealous reaping of dwindling space and natural resources. Lands took up arms against their neighbors.
The end of the world occurred much as we had predicted -- the world was plunged into an abyss of balefire and dark magic. The details are trivial and pointless. The reasons, as always, purely our own.
The world was nearly wiped clean of life. A great cleansing; a magical spark struck by pony hooves quickly raged out of control. Megaspells rained from the skies. Entire lands were swallowed in flames and fell beneath the boiling oceans.
Ponykind was almost extinguished, their spirits becoming part of the ambient
radiation that blanketed the lands. A quiet darkness fell across the world...
…But it was not, as some had predicted, the end of the world. Instead, the
apocalypse was simply the prologue for another bloody chapter in pony history..."
oh yes! I remembered one Russian anecdote: 2 ballistic missiles meet on the orbit. One - Russian, the other - American. Russian says - we should to drink for the meeting. And then again, and again, and again. The American missile was very drunk and couldn't fly so Russian missile out of the goodness says "All right, I'm here, let's go I spend you to your home"
Pretty grim. I'm a super-huge fan of Post-Nuclear films.
I remember seeing a British Version of the film, it was more in-depth about the post years of Armageddon.
My favorite has to be Radioactive Dreams, it's about 2 young brothers who emerge from a bunker that was stocked with 1950's detective fiction and swing music and they set out in a 1950's Cadillac to solve crime in the nuclear wasteland
Of course, I watched "threads" powerful film. Both films are equal in quality and design. In these films, I am struck by the scope of the picture. I suggest you watch russian film "Dead Man's Letters" [link] Unless, of course, if you will find it with subtitles. This film is more serious and profound, so not everyone may like it.
dubbing of the film's may be different, important is the translation and character voices. Preference for subtitles is not a sign of ethnic. I just think that the English dub of this film basically doesn't exist.
