    I haven't seen them all...but personally, I'm partial to World War Z and I Am Legend.

    But my favorite has to be 12 Monkeys. Just sci-fi enough. Just real enough. Just trippy enough. And Brad Pitt showing finger.

    12 Monkeys, was great but I haven't watched it in years. I also heard the show was decent I think

    Re-watching Contagion now. Haven't seen it since it first came out.
    Their will most definitely be a COVID-19 movie in a few years.

    I re-watched it last night. Seeing Kevin Spacey ravaged by a virus was kind of enjoyable.

    Outbreak is a horrible movie

    eta: The Bay is highly underrated.

    There is a movie called Carriers with Chris Pine on Netflix. It's not the greatest movie ever, but the story is about people trying to survive the back end of an end of world pandemic - a better fit for current fears than a zombie movie if you are looking for a relevant movie.

    28 Days Later is the undisputed champ of this thread and on that fact there can be no debate. Those are the rules.
