Don'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.
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…
Before Ruben Fleischer went on to direct 30 Minutes or Less and Gangster Squad to lackluster critical reception, he made his directorial debut by creating one of the best zombie flicks of the modern generation. Written by the talented duo of Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, Zombieland is worthy of masterpiece status in the horror/comedy genre. This is a blended offering in a genre that is challenging to actually find success in, yet this talented team of filmmakers make it look easy! Imagine a deep-fried Twinkle is sitting right in front of you! You just had a terrific work-out thus the temptation to devour it needs to be beaten somehow! Someway! Tough right? Now imagine how hard it is to…
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
"Who's Bill Murray?"
"I've never hit a kid before.."
All kinds of fun and surprisingly an original take on the zombie genre that seems clouded with the same ideas. I've seen this film a million times and it has yet to bore me. Zombieland also features one of my personal favourite film cameos ever.
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...
I loved absolutely everything about this movie, except for the ending. It just felt really boring and lacking to me. It felt more like the ending of a TV episode than a film.
Also, the Bill Murray part was fucking gold.
Esta película es todo lo que uno busca en una película de zombies desenfadada. Zombies, personajes con carisma, aroma a serie B, originalidad, guía de supervivencia al estilo de Max Brooks y ese toque de humor que tanta falta hace para que la sensación final sea una sonrisa en la cara. Divertidísima.
Ziemlich lustiger Film. Die Zombies sehen übertrieben eklig aus, der Rest ist eigentlich auch ziemlich lustig.
Wenn man mit ordentlich Gewalt auskommt, wird man mit sympathischen Darstellern und einer ordentlichen Story entlohnt, die mit witzigen aber uach ernsten Momenten durchaus zu überzeugen weiß. Trotzdem gilt natürlich, nicht zu ernst nehmen und die Regeln beachten!
Film 16 of #31daysofhorror.
From the first second, this film is just plain fun. Even though I have seen it a number of times, I always manage to laugh all the way through, and it has heart, too.
"Oh, this is so exciting, you're about to learn who they're gonna call. ... It's Ghostbusters."
I do have a huge soft spot for stars acting apeshit starstruck in films. YMMV.
2 stars for Bill Fucking Murray :-D
Emma Stone's in it. That's enough for me. The rest of the cast is great too, especially some of the cameos. It's also funny, heartfelt, gory, and at times tense as hell. Oh yeah, some pretty awesome songs in it as well.
Woody Harrelson gives his best performance since The Thin Red Line in what boils down to nothing more than a simple road movie with zombies. The plot is thin, but the dialogue is sharp and clever. The action is presented with some preposterously entertaining editing that elevates the material beyond what is expected. Also, it doesn't hurt that Bill Murray makes an unforgettable appearance that absolutely kills.
