Army of the Dead

Army of the Dead ★★★½

Honestly a bit of a downer! And that's okay because this is Zack's movie and as almost always he is unapologetically himself and I think that's great. Definitely more of a turkey shoot zombie movie than a heist movie, so don't expect anything close to Ocean's cause this ain't it; but it's a fun 2.5 hours nonetheless and there is a white zombie tiger and you do get to see it squish a guy's head like a rotten watermelon so we're still winning if you ask me.

At base level this is a loud & silly movie; but gracefully and reverently still focused on the people -- living and dead -- and the dreams they hold for themselves and each other. How easily, how horribly it can all be ripped apart like so much flesh.
