I saw Marc Forster's latest feature foray with a couple of buddies of mine. Why is this fact important? Well, it's important because as an avid horror/Zombie Movie fan I thought it was important to see this movie with not so avid Zombie movie fans. Why? Well, first and foremost these types of features are best enjoyed with minds of a similar elk.
Secondly, as an avid Zombie movie fan I have found myself the deformed black sheep of many a movie discussion, where I have been labelled grim, morbid and even socially immune. So I have gleaned two things from these discussions: 1. Some people are just plain hurtful and 2. Everyone's appreciation of horror films cannot be measured with the same gage.
World War Z (for me anyway) is a worthwhile flick. A good mix of action, Zombie killing and more action intersected with some monolog as a story-line is worked into the action and zombie killing (com'on, you can't really have too serious a story-line). I liked a lot about the movie including the Zombies and if you have not noticed how quick and agile the modern Zombie is you are in for a treat.
The biggest tell and most accurate gage of this movie however where my two avid movie fans. We were all in cinematic silence, joking about the funnier nuances and white knuckled all at the appropriate times. This movie seemed to have it all and covered its bases well.
Was it the Zombie movie to end all Zombie movies...No. But it was a hell of a ride.
A solid 3/5 from me.
We spent 12 months on this new Flicks website, and when the rubber met the road, a developer who shall rename nameless didn't finish our member login and sign-ups. Literally everything else got done. But not member login and sign-ups. He had a good crack at it. Came up short. It happens.
Good news is, it'll be finished shortly. Please try again in a day or so. We appreciate your patience.
