  1. I thought there could have been more gore in it actually but I don’t think that was the point of the movie. It’s a great buddy road trip comedy, has the best cameo ever and throws zombies in just to please my horror movie heart!

  2. I didn’t really warm to the zombie genre until a few years ago when I finally got around to watching “Night of the Living Dead,” “Dawn of the Dead” and “Day of the Dead.” So I approached “Zombieland” with some hesitation, but it more than surpassed my expectations. What I love about the movie is that there’s plenty of gore — maybe not enough for hard-core gore lovers, but enough for the average viewer — and creative killings, but there also are characters we care about. Woody Harrelson, who functions wonderfully as the comic relief, has his moments, and it’s hard (for me, anyway) not to love Jesse Eisenberg as Columbus. His observations about the way the zombie apocalypse finally forced him to embrace life are way more astute and touching than they have a right to be … in a zombie movie.

    Overall, I’d call this one of my favorite films of 2009. At the very least, it’s one of the most purely fun and entertaining ones.
