Re: Zombieland

And you should see Fido, Thrall. It's well worth your while.
I think I will since you recommend it.

I think Columbus said that no one knew the cause of the zombie virus so there's that too.
He said it briefly. Mad Cow disease that had mutated into Mad People disease. But that could have been a joke.

Re: Zombieland

Was it just me or did these Zombies seem to die easier than in other zombie movies.

A baseball whack to the head just wouldn't kill a zombie in other movies. The disease they caught made them behave like cannibals that could not feel pain. But it seemed you could kill them like a regular human. The double tap rule just made sure.

It was a joke/speculation on his part about the "Mad People Disease." Since a human-form of BSE exsists in CJD.

No "real" explanation was ever given.

Just saw the movie yesterday, and he does say that it all started when a certain patient zero first bit into an infected burger.

I thought that they were doing that because these are supposed to be closer to the Rage infected than anything else.

Maybe the zombies were easy to kill because the movie wasn't really about zombies.

The comic book series The Walking Dead is being converted into a television series for AMC.
I'm not familiar with AMC. How do they rate in the way of content-restriction?

Fictitiously yours, Trent Roman
I wouldn't be surprised if they push it a bit. It was, surprisingly enough, originally planned to air on NBC before they shelved it.

Here's a little about the graphic novel the series is based on: The Walking Dead.

The 'Zombies' were not dead, they just had a very bad disease and thus still humanly vulnerable and easier to kill. Still, remember the 'Double Tap' rule

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.
Agreed.

..but my God,

Re: Zombieland

I would have found the original cameo they had planned far better though, but it would've been sad to see because of recent events.

Patrick Swayze was the original cameo that was planned and they were going to do a homage of his scenes in ghost at the pottery wheel.

Re: Zombieland

Okay, that was a frakking awesome movie. And I'm not usually all that into zombie flicks. Woody Harrelson was just hilarious, and that cameo!

I liked Jesse Eisenberg, too. He gets compared a lot to Michael Cera, but Cera's shtick just feels phony. Eisenberg can actually do more than just act like an awkward, gangly kid all the time.

And Emma Stone is 100% pure zombie-killing hotness.

I hope we see another adventure in Zombieland.

Eisenberg does a better Cera than Cera.

Yeah, Eisenberg certainly has range. His roles in Roger Dodger and The Squid and The Whale have proven that.
