Today starts the End of the World Blogathon which is being hosted by yours truly and my partner in crime, Movie Movie Blog Blog. We have gathered some of the most interesting movies concerning the End of the world and brought them all together, with the help of some fellow prognosticators and their movie choices. Hope you enjoy the foray. This post will be updated periodically over the course of the weekend, so if it's not April 3rd in your part of the world, there is probably still more to come. Keep coming back.
