Zombieland

Just saw it.  Awesome movie.  End result of the plot is a bit predictable, but how they get there is interesting.

Discuss.

Well I havn't seen Inglorious Basterds, but I can very much recomend seeing Zombieland.  It is one of the few movies where I come out of the theater saying "Wow, that was a great movie".

Hmm, that's a very good question.  It is really all in how a lot of little things come together beautifully.  It's not really too muych of a comedy, but comedy is there, always subtley in the background, jsut enough to be entertaining, but not so much ot become overbearing.  The as I said before, the end results of the plot is fairly predictable, but just the process of getting there is interesting and unique.  The acting is very well done, as are the effects.

I dunno, I'm not very good at explaining these sorts of things, I'd reccomend reading some reviews, but like I said, I recomend seeing it.

Also to what I said before, I'm not saying that Zombieland is better than Inglorious Basterds.  I can't take that stance since I havn't sene the latter.  I'm just saying that Zombieland is a movie that should be watched.  If you can see both, all the better.

Is it rated R and if so is it an R that deserves to be R or is it more of a hard PG-13?  I'm not allowed to view most R films, so that's why I'm asking.

Is it more horror or comedy? I hate horror, but love comedy?

So basically is it more Shawn of the Dead or Dawn of the Dead?
No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

This move was really great. Now to answer some of your questions. If you're wondering whether to see this or Inglorious Basterds it's hard to say. That really depends on what you're looking for. They were both good, but in their separate ways. It's hard to compare them. If you're willing to sit roughly three hours in the theater than see Inglorious Basterds, otherwise see this. If you can, see both.

Zombieland is a comedy, but one that is very big on the gore. I've seen several zombie movies and this one is right up there with the goriest. There are times where I cringed just because it seemed a bit over the top. But even then this was hilarious. The acting was great, Woody Harrelson needs to be in more movies, and, as I read in the newspaper, the surprise appearance of Bill Murray was the funniest 10 minutes of any movie this year.

Zombieland was rated R for a good reason. There are some really gory parts, some crude humor, and the F bomb was dropped several times throughout (not that it matters much, that is part of the R rating system though).

Hope that helped with some of the questions. If not I can always try again.

agreed. both movies were filled to the brim with what the kids call 'awesomesauce'.

It's rated R mostley for the gore I would think.  Apart from that it's pretty tame by most movie's standards.

This movie is very entertaining. I'd definitely recommend it over Inglourious Basterds. Zombieland also has the best cameo appearances I've ever seen.

I think I might be able to see it.  Hopefully without a barf bag or eyepatch.
