I realized today that I'm getting lethargic with all this doom and gloom on the news and it's time to get some more laughter in my life. 

What usually works is to get some old apocalypse and post-apocalypse movies out of the library and have a good giggle.  Can anyone help me think of some good movies to watch that poke fun at the kinds of things that are in the news these days?

I'm starting with Doctor Strangelove.



What should I watch next?

"A Boy and His Dog"

Also, take a look at the number of stories written by sci-fi icon Philip K. Dick that have been made into prescient recent films:  http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0001140/?ref_=tt_ov_wr

Little doom and gloom here but some of the best laughs I've had lately in front of the small screen.
