This place is so dead
Columbus has made a habit of running from what scares him. Tallahassee 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.

My biggest moviestar crush ever. (yeah, I mean Mrs. Stone)
Bill fucking Murray.
I am incapable of not liking this film.
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…
"That'll do, pig"
This movie is so much fun. In a way, I kind of like it more than Shawn of the Dead, but they are two really different Zombie Comedies.
Also. Zombie Comedies. That's a thing. A beautiful thing.

tallahassee's face when he finally got a twinkie should've won woody harrelson an oscar
this movie always makes me want snoballs and i don't even like coconut (not the taste, the consistency)
This site just informed me that in 2017 there's going to be a sequel to this crap.
Lets count the ways why this is woeful:
1) Narration. Why is Jesse Eisenberg's character narrating from the git go? Who is he telling this story to? The viewer? Is this now meta? Who knows. That's why I'm already asking a billion questions. Doesn't help that we clearly know he doesn't die, too. But screw it, this is only 80 something minutes long to begin w/. Lets just let all of this crap be known immediately.
2) Bad directing. The aforementioned less than 90 minutes bit here tells us that this world building of America (or everywhere...?) during an infection w/a zombie…
Hat mir edeutlich besser gefallen, als ich ihn in Erinnerung hatte. Vielleicht weil ihn diesmal auf Englisch gesehen habe. Wurde durchweg gut unterhalten und musste doch ein paar mal gut lachen.
I watched this on Region A DVD.
This well be the end of my Horror binge, I know I've been on a roll and I've got a few more to review but the end is most definitely nigh. I actually wanted to watch a comedy and as I was looking through the available DVD's I noticed this. I've seen this so many times before but it was short and I didn't want to watch something scary or too long, so I settled on this.
The film follows the aftermath of Zombie outbreak in Amercia, we follow Columbus played by Jessie Eisenberg and Tallahassee played by Woody Harrelson. Together they stand together fighting the undead. This film really surprised me when…
I could do without the narration.
When are we finally going to get Zombieland 2?
Smart, hilarious, and action packed! Zombieland takes the tradition horror set up and turns it into a nonstop thrill ride filled with humor and some sick kills. Acting was impressive but what really shined was the witty lines of dialogue. Direction was really impressive, he really had a vision. The final amusement park sequence was awesome. By the end of the film I truly cared for these characters. For those of you who love action and comedy this is the film for you.
Great 60-90 min films (for those days when you just don't have the energy to watch a 3 hour masterpiece)
Doesn't the title of the list explain it well enough? This is a list of hight quality "short" films. Easy…
