ZOMBIELAND - DEAD-ON - a HELL of a FUN ride! Grade: A (Based on advance VIP press preview)

Written September 30, 2009
Thursday Sept. 17, 2009. This 1hr 22min PG-13 horror-comedy stars Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Emma Stone, and Abigail Breslin - directed by Ruben Fleischer - and filmed in Georgia, USA!!! A recurring Twinkie joke provided continuity to this ZANY HILARIOUS tightly scripted movie. Throw in the Bill Murray cameo(as himself!) and you have a seriously side-splitting experience. Rule #69 - you MUST laugh - and LOUD!!! Rule #2, 3, 4, etc. - you'll find out soon enough when you watch the movie. Seriously, ZOMBIELAND is a rib-tickling ENJOYABLE ENTERTAINING comedy/horror-comedy. The principal cast has such wonderful chemistry that not even zombies could tear them apart. Woody is off-the-kilter FUNNY! Make-up, costumes, set-design, directing, editing, and cinematography are above-average. Stay until after the entire credits for a BONUS SCENE. VERDICT: Rule #420 - Zombie killing is FUN and crucial for continued survival. Don't Be A Hero! Rule #35 - SEE THIS MOVIE!

Zombieland!

I went to an advance preview 9-17-09 to see Zombieland. At first I was pretty scared that it wasn't going to be funny at all and it would just be lame. Not to mention on a lot of message boards people were already comparing it with Shaun of the Dead, and saying it couldn't even be half as good. Well personally I thought it was completely different than Shaun of the Dead, though it is a comedy/horror zombie movie it really has very little in common. Zombieland was funny, full of action, and gory. I thoroughly enjoyed it and plan to see it again. The acting was fantastic, Woody Harrelson was just perfect as Tallahassee, I bet he will garner a lot of buzz off this one. In fact I think all the actors will. And best of all, it as one of the single best celebrity cameos in a movie EVER! I really loved it. I think anyone who doesn't mind gore and zombies will love having a laugh watching this movie. It's one that just gets better the more times you watch it.

Zombieland may replace Shaun of the Dead as the best zombie spoof.

This movie is hilarious and bound to bring Woody Harrelson a lot of attention for his role as Tallahassee. Jesse Eisenberg is also fantastic as the nebby, geeky kid who is just trying to survive the apocalypse where (nearly) everyone is a zombie, and he's our guide through Zombieland. Emma Stone and Abigail Breslin also have some fun moments, but this movie is stolen in a couple of scenes, once the main characters get to Los Angeles. The movie begins with us learning "Columbus'" rules for survival. We get fun, slo-mo enactments on why these rules are in place (and really brought back the fun, stylized opening credits for Watchmen), and then throughout the movie we are treated to continuous callbacks. The movie is gory, and has some good jump scares, but doesn't really revel in it, so it winds up seeming a little tamer than it actually is. It's a great, great movie. A brilliant send up of zombie/post-apocalyptic films, and definitely needs to be seen. (if you like this stuff)

For all those zombie-lovers out there this movie is hilarious. The characters make you laugh and connect with them so easily. I love seeing what their lives were like before and after everything started. Their personalities mesh so well with each other, and the parody of it all just makes you laugh so much. Great movie, and fun humor.
