Wickquoting #3: Zombieland

Here comes the hoard..

Some films are like wine.  You either love it or you don’t.  Zombieland is one of those films.  It is clear that the film is aimed towards guys (esp those who play video games).  With guns, girls, and zombie killing, what’s there to doubt?

A small bit actually.  The film has a unique style in which rules are shown (like a game) and humor is expressed, but it lacks a real finishing kicker.  It seems as though the director focused so much on character development, that he skipped over the depth and climax of the story.  It’s not to say that the plot was terrible, just that it didn’t have the umph that the film deserved.  Even though the film is set in many different settings (grocery store, mansion, theme park, etcetc) there’s a sense that the film ends too quickly.

This could actually be viewed as a d^__^b thing, leaving viewers wanting more.  This will only increase the hype for the sequel.  With comedy mixed in zombie shooting, it’s no wonder Zombieland is now the top-grossing zombie film to date.

So, like wine, even if this is not your kind of film, taking a sip once in a while is a good thing.  It’s def a new experience.
