Netflix pick: The Postman

My Netflix pick this week is available only in DVD – no streaming. Kevin Costner stars in the apocalyptic action/sci-fi movie – The Postman

Here is a brief summary from Netflix:

In the year 2013, amidst the desolation of a decimated, post-apocalypse United States, rogue groups of armed men prey on individuals. The largest of these — the Holnists, led by General Bethlehem (Will Patton) — seeks to rule the country. They capture a drifter (Kevin Costner), who escapes at first chance and stumbles on an abandoned mail Jeep. He begins delivering its letters, eventually restoring hope and inspiring revolution.

Here is the trailer for the flick –

Worth checking out.

  1. I love this movie. I have watched it about 30 times and it gets better everytime. I always notice something different everytime I watch it. I like their security fence(Logs) when he comes up to the little town with the mail. I like the premise of the movie, that we have to move on from the bad and have some semblance of normalcy. I would be comforting to know that you were able to get mail and hear from others.

  2. I picked up a paperback copy of “The Postman” in 1985. I read it over once a year. I watch the DVD before each reading now. Science tells us that the last memory we have is a visual image. I find that implanting a visual image prior to reading the same story truly brings the ‘story’ to life. Like “The Postman” Read the book… after the movie. It is a different story.t
