Sometimes it feels like we're overloaded with massive stories about saving the world, or maybe the galaxy. But there's nothing wrong with high stakes, as long as they're convincing and grounded in the characters. Which book, movie, TV show or comic made you believe the world really was at stake?

Please include a picture, poster, clip, book cover or comics panel for your chosen story. And please mention the name, and why it made you believe. Thanks!
