And which Dawn of the Dead? Romero's one from the 70s or the more recent one? Both are pretty good, but I like Romero's a bit more.

I also recently watched John Carpenter's The Thing for the first time in years. That's another good horror movie that delves into human paranoia and fear, would recommend it (and it's nothing that would scare you).

Agreed. If you're a pansy boy and want to avoid the gore or being 'scared', Silence of the Lambs and The Thing are good movies that build the suspense and paranoia without being what you'd likely consider 'scary'. The Exorcist is another movie I'd recommend, while being 'scarier' than the other two, it's not in the same way recent movies are, and imo, it's held up over time. Also, you'll probably say "Your mother sucks c**** in Hell." at least once in your life after it.

Really enjoyed the first one (8/10)
I never did get around to watching the second one.

Agree on the ratings for the first 2, but the previews for #3 look pretty awful...

Definitely a 10/10...

Finally saw 50/50 the other day. Really good movie. Nice combination of humor and seriousness. I'd probably give it an 8.5/10

Joseph Gordon Levitt was really good and I'm glad he's making a come back. I met him in person about 6 years ago in LA just easting outside at a cafe.

Drive 3/10

How this thing got 92% on Rotten Tomatoes I will never know. I guess because it is so stylish but it's stylish crap.
If you like long drawn out silences and plenty of uncomfortable and awkward situations between the lead characters then this movie is for you.
Throw in 30 seconds of incredible violence every 30 minutes, unrealistic bad guys, a very thin story and a bad ending and this is drive.
Everybody leaving the theater was asking how this got such good reviews.

agreed. I was very disappointed with this movie. seeing that for me, personally, you really can't go wrong with a movie involving aliens and alien weapons fighting on earth. yet, I did not enjoy this.
