Doesn't the title of the list explain it well enough? This is a list of 200+ quality "short" films. Easy…
This place is so dead
Columbus (Jesse Eisenberg) has made a habit of running from what scares him. Tallahassee (Woody Harrelson) doesn't have fears. If he did, he'd kick their ever-living ass. In a world overrun by zombies, these two are perfectly evolved survivors. But now, they're about to stare down the most terrifying prospect of all: each other.
Not Quite Hoop-Tober: Day 28
Audio commentary mini-series – part 4
There has been a recent resurgence in popularity over the past few years in the horror/comedy subgenre. Whatever the cause, the majority are pure horror films merely with a sense of humor. There might be some laughs, but the meal still tastes like fear. Zombieland is exactly the other way around: it's a broad comedy soup with dashes of zombie dystopia mixed in. There are zombies at the start and end of the movie, but in the middle it's all about the humans.
Of course this doesn't mean either that the film doesn't deserve its horror classification or that fans of the genre won't find plenty to like. There's…
Finding that mix between comedy and horror can sometimes be a tough ask. When it works though, the film generally becomes a cult favorite with a loyal following and often inspire spin-offs or sequels. Ruben Fleischer's film did just that with a very funny script, three very engaging lead characters, and a cameo from one of Hollywood's comedy greats. Eisenberg, Harrelson, and the delectable Emma Stone give this a fresh and hip feel with real chemistry between them all, but it's the zombie action that will bring the laughs. Outrageous kills, sarcasm by the minute, and more blood and gore than a Saw movie,this is all about following the rules and rule number 32 especially, "Enjoy the little things". Still funny, despite numerous rewatches, this is up there with Shaun Of The Dead in the zombie hierarchy. Oh and Bill Murray, take a bow mate.
This was a rewatch, and didn't really enjoy it anywhere near as much this time round. As a comedy I don't think it was a patch on Shaun of the Dead and suffered from pacing issues throughout. The last 15 minutes were great, and the first 20 minutes were good too, but I really felt it got quite a bit boring in places in between. Too much melodrama and not enough comedy genius or zombies! If it wasn't for Bill Murrays cameo spicing things up a little in the middle then I feel that this movie wouldn't have been quite as well recieved as it was.
And that's all I have to say on it really. It brought out a few chuckles, and the ending gave a little excitement but apart from that, it was a fairly average movie with a script that wasn't quite as clever as I remembered. Good gore effects though. 6/10
When it comes to comedies that feature Zombies it's hard to look past Edgar Wright's Shaun Of The Dead on the laughter stakes. It captured the balance between comedy and some over-the-top gory greatness to stunning effect in what really was the first film of a new genre. Ruben Fleischer would follow the exact same path only with a bigger budget and the emphasis on some show stopping Zombie kills.
When America is torn apart by a Zombie apocalypse only a few humans are left as they battle to avoid becoming a snack for the un-dead. Told from the point of view of Jesse Eisenberg's "Columbus", he has tongue-in-cheek style rules that have kept him alive so far. Traveling back…
I don't know how often I've seen this movie. It has all the things that I dig: Jesse Eisenberg, Emma Stone, bloody violence with lots of blood, the geek gets the hot girl, girls kicking ass and taking names, Zombies (DUH!), cool visual design, a new approach to a well-known theme, hilarious one-liners, inspired use of theme parks, best cameo in at least forever, Woody Harrelson discussing Hannah Montana. I could go on...
Why's Emma Stone holding a chainsaw in this poster?
She doesn't wield one at any point during the film, does she? Or did I phase out at that point? As Woody Harrelson says at one point here, "That's false advertising!"
You know, I'm going to seem like a complete hypocrite here considering all the moaning I've done recently about films being too long - but Zombieland is too short. I'm not saying it should have been, like, an hour longer or anything but just 10 or 15 minutes just to boost a couple of the ideas here might have saved it all from feeling like it ended rather abruptly, because that's what…
Really good. This is the best zombie film I've ever seen. But that's not difficult as I hate zombie films as a rule. I just don't get them. They're so illogical. They're dead, but can be killed? They're infectious but only when they bite? How does that work? Infected teeth?
There don't seem to be any rules. Still this was good, especially when Emma Stone was on screen. But that section in the Hollywood stars house? Was that a different film?
9/10: Watch this if you want to know how to survive against the zombies! One of the best zombie movies last year!
Best. Cameo. Ever.

I like Zombies and I like Twinkies. That means I like this movie. Oh yea, I'm not a fan of Snowballs either. :)
My review -- this film is now on DVD and it does have an excellent profit margin. The plot, now sadly the world has been taken over by zombies, there are some members of the human race remaining throughout the world but it is very rare to see a massive cluster in one area. The viewer meets this very withdrawn and slightly strange individual by the name of Columbus and he gives us this inner monologue of what this happened to the planet and what he is trying to achieve. I say that this character is very withdrawn and slightly strange because he seems to have adapted very quickly to the zombie battle and including his unique yet factual and…
