The Half in the Bag crew aren't too impressed.

And I know this is based on a book, but the post-apocalyptic love story between a human gal and a dead guy who might get better was already done pretty well in Daybreakers.

I saw it last week and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I'm not a fan of romantic films or horror, but this was neither and yet both at the same time, which is why I liked it so much. It's a zombie film with a heart, literally and figuratively. It's also got a witty first person narrative from the main character's perspective, and the actor makes R's character so lovable.

I give it a solid A.

Just saw it tonight, and I have to say I agree with Gryffindorian. Though I might knock it down to a B+/A- because it suffers from the all too common rushed ending that most Hollywood fair suffers from today. Overall a most enjoyable night at the movies.

Re: Warm Bodies film discussion

Just saw this on Redbox...pleasantly surprised...definitely lots of funny moments, and especially liked R and his friend M (Marcus).

I definitely let go of the plot holes, as this isn't "serious" like Walking Dead, so i just had fun.

Usually not a fan of romantic stuff, but this worked really well, and was glad when certain characters did NOT die.

Definitely worth watching with a loved one on Redbox/Netflix/etc.

Fun movie. My girlfriend was somewhat dubious about renting it, but ended up enjoying it as well.

No idea how you'd do a WARM BODIES 2. Guess they weren't thinking franchise.

Re: Warm Bodies film discussion

Is there a sequel to the book? If so I guess they don't have to think too hard, but I don't think every film should be a franchise.

oh, appears there's to be a sequel to the novel at least.

From Wiki
On October 15, 2012, Marion announced via his blog that he is writing a sequel. No official time of release or title has been released to the public at this time yet.[8]

Agreed. I was kind of pleasantly surprised to find that everything was pretty much resolved at the end . . . .

Re: Warm Bodies film discussion

As I said back in the winter, I really enjoyed this. It did something different with the genre, which, while it bothered some, does make it stand out.

As for a sequel, the BBC series, In the Flesh could provide an example of where a sequel could go, though, tonally, they are very different. However, the reintegration of the living with the "partially dead" (to steal the term from In the Flesh) could have been more difficult than the ending of Warm Bodies implied.
