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.
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
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…
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…
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…
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...
Knowing that they're developing Zombieland into a tv series makes a lot of sense. Sure zombies are the flavor of the month (many months), but it's the structure of the movie that lends itself to more of a weekly action/sitcom. This stems from the small cast, guest cameos, and basic situations that they are put into (exploring businesses, homes etc.). Even the ensemble leans more towards a weekly type layout, the tough older guy, the cute kid and the romantic tension between the male and female leads that can be milked for multiple seasons.
The movie itself does a lot of things right, especially since they were dealing with the over-saturated idea of zombies. Right upfront, they creatively displayed Eisenberg's…
Forget everything you think you know about zombie movies
very funny, new take on zombie genre films. too low on zombies during the middle part. great cast, including the lovely Abigail Breslin...
