Once again, I highly recommend picking up World War Z if not for pure, awesomeness in zombie-related entertainment.


I second that notion. Great read for anyone remotely interested in zombies. ;-D

I don't know if you saw 28 Days Later, but the infection is something based on rage. All the "zombies" attack people who aren't enrage I think.

On a side note, the director and writer are different for this movie. Is it really as good as the first?

Are they really? I watched a handful of small clips and the style (and definitely the music) seemed extraordinarily familiar to the first.

Danny Boyle didn't direct the second movie, but he did produce it, so it had that same feel as the first one. To be honest, I really couldn't tell that someone else directed it. The quality of the film in the 2nd was actually better and less grainy than the first one, which I'm sure was attributable to the larger budget.

And yes, I thought it was as good as the first one. I daresay it may even be better, but I'll have to watch it a couple more times before I can decide for sure. :-)

Oh, and you're right... they re-used a lot of the same music. At first I was a little disappointed when I first heard the same music start playing, but it ended up working just as well in this as it did in the first movie.

I saw this movie and enjoyed it but my question is how come when the "zombies" (the infected) do not feed on each other. When they attack a non-infected person wouldn't that person become one of the infected and the feeding zombies would stop feeding on them and perserve their "life"?

Anyways, a good movie with helicopters being put to interesting uses ;-)

Actually, that was one of the few scenes that didn't really work for me. It was cool, just a little far fetched.

The Last King of Scotland - 8.5/10 - great acting with a deep story and very entertaining. Highly recommended.

V for Vendetta - 9/10 - I liked it much better the second time around probably because I wasn't as critical on the comic book to celluloid translation. Great story and acting. Probably the best comic book/graphic novel movie ever made.

still haven't seen the 1st one, but have really wanted to.

I thought V started out very strong, but rushed itself starting about halfway through. I would have liked to have seen them dig into V more, though I'm not familiar with how the novel goes or how many liberties the Wachowski Brothers took with it.
