Xfire Identity: i said your mother!!



i saw this saturday night and plan on watching it again today before i send it back in to netflix biggrin.gif... decent action, good acting, fun story and just fun and entertaining throughout... this is now one of my favorite zombie movies, right behind "return of the living dead 2"...

woody is brilliant in this one, one of his best roles in a movie for me... i still liked him in kingpin more but, this is just as good of a performance... abigail bresslin was a surprise, didn't expect to see her in this movie... but, the michael cera clone was pretty good as well... i might actually like this guy more than michael cera and i don't even know his name!! and emma stone is sexy... and who can forget bill murray's cameo?!

it's currently carrying a 4.5/5 star rating on netflix, which means most of the public likes this movie as well... if you haven't see it yet, please do so ASAP... it's an hour and a half of entertaining fun...

Oh, good one. The "you're on the internet so you must have no life" insult isn't moronic or unoriginal at all. You must, without a doubt, be a very important member of society, not at all a waste of the already barely valuable gift of life.

As is the case for everyone who takes issue with people who make them sad on the internet, you are one of two kinds of people:

You are exactly what you claim I am, and that is a lonely, pathetic basement dweller. You life is spent eating eight pounds of junk food per day, masturbating to anything you find online that's even remotely feminine, and wishing you had good looks and social skills. You continue to live with your mother until she dies of a combination of lung cancer and liver failure brought on by the chain-smoking and heavy drinking she used to cope with what a failure you are. Your mother mercifully dead and free of the living embodiment of failure she regretfully thrust from her loins, the bills start to pile up and you, unemployed and unable to pay these bills (of course), lose the house and everything in it. Somehow even more of a failure than you already were, you wander from place to place eating out of dumpsters and sleeping in your own filth until you finally die of AIDS, which you contracted from a diseased whore you scrounged up enough money to pay for, so you could finally lose your virginity while at the same time pretending that your mother was back in your life.

Or:

You are the type who was an athlete in high school, who was genetically doomed to be an idiot but managed to finish school and even get a college scholarship because you were so good at a worthless children's game. You went off to college with a suitcase full of polo shirts and condoms, the polo shirts, because you're a douche, and the condoms to prevent you from impregnating the dim-witted young college girls whom you could never touch without the aid of Rohypnol, a drug you refer to as "roofies" because you can neither spell or pronounce Rohypnol. You scrape by with borderline D's for the next four years, and leave the campus to go out into the real world where your realize you're not intelligent or talented enough to do anything of value with your life. Misery and minimum wage ensues for thirty years, then you blow your brains out, and your corpse, alone and forgotten, is not discovered until the smell of rotting flesh seeps under your door and your bodily fluids finally soak through the floor of your studio apartment and into the room below you. Your body is cremated, the ashes scraped into a garbage bin because there was no one in your life who valued you enough to pay for a casket, funeral, or burial plot.

You're undoubtedly one of the two, otherwise you would have better things to do than complain about the theme of a forum that doesn't care about anything you have to say.

Been meaning to check this out, if I see it at a Redbox, might pick it up.

I'm a huge Shaun of the Dead fan.

I watched this a while back. Pretty funny film. I loved it. But then again i generally love zombie based films so my opinion is a bit biased.

Oh and Shaun of the Dead is epic. Pure genius in terms of comedy!

shaun of the dead was a pretty good one... i tend to like zombie comedies over the drama ones... the whole concept is funny to begin with, might as well make fun of itself laugh.gif...

First - Woody Harrelson's finest work is tied between Natural Born Killers and Cheers. Fact.

Anyways, so long as you ignore everything you've ever heard about zombies and zombie fiction, this can be a great ride. The beginning has it's ups and downs and is generally funny, but the ending will leave you feeling a little ill. They should have concentrated on making a tight comedy, but instead that transitioned into a romance. (Side note: Why is everything a fucking romance these days? Cowboys, soldiers, boxers, gah.) Anyways, yeah. Really good first half, really funny cameo. I wouldn't see it again though.

I have to agree with Heartless. I don't feel the urge to watch it again, but I definitely remembered enjoying it.

Great movie. Short but sweet. I have it saved on my PS3 so it's fun to pop on every once in a while when I'm stoned. Bill Murray's cameo is fucking CLASSIC!

For such a great movie, the ending was disappointing. Lame and cliche..but i don't really guess there was anywhere else do go with it except for everyone dies which wouldn't have sucked even worse.

I thought it was cool they set Tallahassee up for the badass sacrifice death and he ended up killing everything. Most movies let the badass die.

There were things I both liked and disliked about this movie. Overall, it's a good flick. One of my favorite recent zombie movies (by recent, I mean in the last 10 or so years). The "Return of the Living Dead" and "Resident Evil" franchises are really killing this genre of movie, and it sucks balls.

Woody is great in this movie. Bill Murray is a hoot.

The beginning was great. When I got this I popped it in and started jamming out to Metallica. The ending, however, was lame. "Well, Tallahassee just killed everything in sight, even though he was locked in some little arcade booth with what amounts to a limitless amount of ammo, and I got the girls off the drop ride, so let's all get in the truck and try driving east." Lame. But as someone said, the only other option was for everyone to die. Which may not have been a bad idea having seen the ending they gave us.

All in all, 7.5 out of 10. Zombies and Woody Harrelson. Thank god for rednecks!

It was better than Resident Evil, but for what Resident Evil is, a video game turned movie, it is also pretty good.
