|04.24.10||Netflix|| Finally saw Zombieland! it was ok. Probably a product of too many co-workers telling me how great it is and how much i'll love it just because it has zombies in it. It's a little tired. Plus I had this amazing cameo really built up for me then spoiled by Entertainment Weekly whereas if i saw this at FantasticFest I probably would've been pleasantly surprised by it.|
It mostly reminded me of how much I liked Adventureland.
so... yeah. it was good. I mean, Woody Harrelson was good, the girls didn't do much for me. i liked the beginning titles with the cg typography that interacted with the world. Some of the rules are fun I guess... Ok here's a spoiler-ridden distillation of my problems with this movie:
How can you have Bill Murray die in a movie called ZOMBIEland and not have him come back to life? That's just wrong. This sounds absurd but i feel like this whole fast-zombie/virus craze is exploiting zombies. This movie really should be called Sickoland, but nobody would have any idea what that means so it's Zombieland even though dead people don't come back to life!!!
