Apocalypse Movies for NYE

Every year around New Year's Eve I get a craving for end-of-the-world/apocalypse/earth-as-wasteland films. Perhaps just need a morbid thought at the end of each year, or maybe a carryover from (others') lingering Y2K paranoia.

Anyone else enjoy this type of movie at this time of year? If so, what are you watching?

I plan to watch the following on and around NYE:

The Mad Max series
12 Monkeys
Strange Days (primarily for the New Year's celebration)
Omega Man
The Stand

N.B. I know this thread is similar to Repro's "good movies for NYE" thread, but he seemed to want specific suggestions for his friends, and I didn't want to jack his thread. Mods, feel free to merge if necessary.

I second this one. A great end-of-everything movie that doesn't often get mentioned.

Please, please, please take the recommendation of The Day After. It's an amazing little made-for-TV film that deserves all the attention in the world.
