Post-Apocalyptic Fantasy?

I have been a fantasy fan for a long time, ever since I first read The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien when I was a kid of around 8 or so. Of late, I've grown interested in a genre that can best be described as post-apocalyptic fantasy, but to be honest, I draw a blank on books, tv, movies, and the like when it comes to this sub-genre.

So, I'd like to request a bit of help here. Can folks give me an specific recommendations for post-apocalyptic fantasy books, movies, television and other media? I'd appreciate a bit of a write-up on why you liked it and why it's considered post-apocalyptic fantasy.

Thanks in advance, and the Mood icon says it all. :)
