Re: Zombieland

The movie has grown enough on me that I've changed my mind and am going to see it tomorrow or Sunday evening. Not sure yet. Sometime this weekend. It looks funnier than I originally thought.

I'll be seeing it Saturday. I think I've inadvertantly found out who is making the cameo appearance, but that should be fun nonetheless.

It's a pretty entertaining flick but I could have done without the WTF moment (you'll know it when you see it) which I personally didn't think added as much as it took away.

Yeah same here. I made the mistake of reading the Hollywood Reporter review, and they gave it away. You'd think they would be better at that kind of thing.

Oh yeah, I was somewhat distracted because I kept picturing Michael Cera in this movie the entire time.

Re: Zombieland

My friend is a waiter in New York and he was waiting on Jessie Eisenberg the other day and asked him what was the deal with his last two movies having "land" in the title (Adventureland and now Zombieland) and he seemed genuinely perplexed according to my friend, like he seriously hadn't thought about it before. I thought that was funny.

Re: Zombieland

Saw a screening last night and I found it very amusing. Surprisingly so in fact, with cinematography I didn't expect out of a late-summer zombie comedy.

Late Summer Zombie Movie? It's thoroughly Fall now in both terms of the "movie seasons" and in the actual ones.

Re: Zombieland

It was loads of fun. The crowd I was with ate it up.

I'm kind of annoyed with the "watch for a cameo" comments, because not only is it impossible to miss, but knowing that there's going to be one, you can see it coming from miles away. Never before have I seen so many reviewers ruin a gag.

Ah, well. It's still a fun flick.

Stay through the credits.

Yeah, luckily I was totally oblivious to that one.

I didn't stick through the credits though (which I suppose nowadays you always should) care to give a spoiler coded description?

This movie is the most hilarious film I've seen since The Hangover. Never a dull moment. The cameo in question is perhaps the most hilarious scene in a film this year. Everyone in the theater was rolling.

Well, damn, I missed that, since my buddy was ready to leave soon as the credits rolled.

I have to admit that, since I knew about his appearance earlier, it really didn't have an effect on me.
