Rob and the Two Mikes,
I have a few movies that I feel should be on your list of post-apocalyptic movies.
Defcon 4 – horrible movie. Don’t watch it. My dad and I went and saw it at the theater when it came out and we both thought we should have gone to the other movie instead. The other movie was Code of Silence with Chuck Norris.
Damnation Alley – it’s ok for a late 70’s flick. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0075909/
Blade Runner – Not sure if this qualifies, but I think it’s close.
Demolition Man – New San Angeles after “the big one”.
Red Dawn – Kind of post-apocalyptic like Independance Day. It day of, and the days after. In this case months after.
Keep up the great work.
PS. Rob, What do you think of Arrow? The twist in the plot are insane!
