The Zombieland gang is back, in another pretty funny zom-com (zombie comedy). Yet, while Jesse Eisenberg, Emma Stone, Woody Harrelson and Abigail Breslin seem right at home reviving these characters, it's the new faces that really deliver freshness to this comedy.

This film is not reinventing anything new, just continuing to survive during the zombie apocalypse, and it's pretty funny.
I finally got around to watching my all time favorite movie again, and it's just as good as it's always been. Stanley Kubrick and Arthur C. Clarke had a vision, and every scene is flawless, from the visuals, the music, and the sound down to astonishingly and accurately predicting so much regarding future technology and space travel. Its a long film that many might have a hard time sitting through, but this movie will always have a special place in my heart, and sit atop the list of my very favorite films.

As the plot bubbles to full boil, just allow yourself to be immersed in this world as Tarantino crafts scene after scene with spot on dialogue amidst this visual spectacle. Its another great film by a great filmmaker.

This film thrusts us back into Derry, and once again face to face with the evil who frequently takes the shape…
