Zombieland (Columbia 2009)


Well, it may be a stretch to call the horror-comedy Zombieland a "conservative" flick, but...

1. It is a story about survival.

2. It has guns...lots and lots of guns.

3. This movie may be the key to living or dieing during an actual zombie attack.

For instance, here is a good rule that you should probably remember and follow...

Rule 4: Doubletap: Carrying a gun is a great idea but it should never be your primary weapon. When you do end up using it for that last minute 'oh s--t' moment remember to double tap. Its an emergency and thats why your using it and not your cricket bat so why skimp? One bullet more in the head will go a long way to ensuring your survival.

Folks, this movie is funny. I mean REAL funny! If you can stand the gore you'll make it through Zombieland and become a fan. I can almost guarantee there will be sequel in the near future.

The horror comedy Zombieland focuses on two men who have found a way to survive a world overrun by zombies. Columbus is a big wuss -- but when you're afraid of being eaten by zombies, fear can keep you alive. Tallahassee is an AK-toting, zombie-slaying' bad ass whose single determination is to get the last Twinkie on earth. As they join forces with Wichita and Little Rock, who have also found unique ways to survive the zombie mayhem, they will have to determine which is worse: relying on each other or succumbing to the zombies.

Here is the trailer...

We watched this a couple of weeks ago on Vuze. HILARIOUS, especially if you are a zombie flick afficianado.

It's been in the queue for a while now. A co-worker went on and on about one of the Bill Murray scenes...she couldn't stop laughing!

EDGE said...


Honestly the only other zombie movie I've ever seen was Shaun of the Dead which is also pretty funny! Check it out if you have a chance!


Those scenes are pretty funny! Like I said if you can get over the's hilarious.

Brooke said...

Oh, man, Shaun of the Dead was too good!

I think Jen can handle the 'gore.' It's pretty cartoon-ish, not at all like those stupid Saw movies where the gore is in and for itself.

Brooke and Jen,

Check out 'Hot Fuzz' and 'Run Fat Boy Run' when you have a chance. Both star Simon Pegg from 'Shaun of the Dead.'

Brooke said...

I've seen them both. I like Simon Pegg movies!

Hot Fuzz was OK, and I really enjoyed Run, Fat Boy, Run. Very good flick there... You should review it! :)

Jen said...

Aw, great! Now I'll be all into zombie movies! ;-)

Brooke's right. I don't watch any of the slasher movies. The gore is just gratuitous. I prefer a more psycho-psycho-killer! The new Leo DiCaprio movie looks promising.
But scary movies REALLY scare me...BAD!

I can't believe it! Zombieland arrived in the mail last night!

It was hilarious!
(I think I laughed hardest when he drove the motorcycle into the bushes, though. Gotta love that confidence!!)
