    Synopsis


    Zombieland
    A cowardly shut-in named Columbus (Jesse Eisenberg) is forced to join up with a seasoned zombie slayer named Tallahassee (Woody Harrelson) in order to survive the zombie apocalypse. As Tallahassee sets out on a mission to find the last Twinkie on Earth, the duo meets up with Wichita (Emma Stone) and Little Rock (Abigail Breslin), two young girls who have resorted to some rather unorthodox methods to survive amidst the chaos. Reluctant partners in the battle against the undead, all four soon begin to wonder if it might be better to simply take their chances alone. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      A Diamond in the Rough

      Zombieland, the $23,000,000 zombie movie that raced to the top of the box office and claims the zombie movie king box office crown. Welcome to the United States of Zombieland. When US residents contract an extremely viral form of Mad Cow disease it converts the host into an infected flesh eating monster that chews its way through the entire world. Zombieland is probably one of the most refreshing horror comedies of this decade. This is what I personally consider the American Shaun of the Dead... personally I enjoy it more than Shain, but that is just me and of course my opinions don't reflect everyones taste in movies. We follow a group of four survivors as they roam the US trying to get to an Amusement park in hopes of finding some normalcy in the zombie infected world. Each survivor is aplty named after the city in which they lived prior to the zombie onslaught, which I considered something brilliant in terms of horror comedy writing because as the characters mention not knowing their names makes it easier for them to not get attached. On the journey we have Tallahassee, a butt kicking wild man, played to perfect comedic timing by Woody Harrelson. The closeted nerd Columbus, played to perfection by Jesse Einsberg, The fiesty and cunning Wichita and Little Rock played by Emma Stone and Abigail Breslin respectively. Zombieland can easily be considered the frat party zombie film. It can be enjoyed by one person, but it works better with a crowd. While some would consider that comment to be a slight against the film it is not. It is a compliment in every form. One of the greatest zombie films of all time is George Romero's DAWN of the DEAD and Romero himself states people get together andparty with Dawn of the Dead, and this is exactly what you can do with Zombieland. Now Zombieland isn't a deep film, in fact its message of "family is where you find it", is presented but not shoved down your throat it is basically there to show that even people of opposite backgrounds can learn to help each other and protect each other. Zombieland serves up the laughs quite frequently by letting Woody Harrelson loose to unleash his zombie killing skills upon the infected population. Most of the great and funny gags come from the rules for Surviving Zombieland and how Woody dispatches the would be dispatchers. However once Wichita and Little Rock join the fold the laughs increase at a fast pace including the 8 minute long cameo from comedic superstar Bill Murray. Zombieland is comedic escapism at its best, and can be enjoyed by an audience aged 15 and up. Aside from the R-rating and some use of the F-word there is nothing extremely offensive in this film that would require it to be shielded from the younger ones. Truly a cult classic in the waiting and it rightly deserves its places on the list of one of the best zombie films ever made. The Blu-Ray PQ is superb. For you HD folks out there wanting to show off your home theater this is the disc to get your hands on. Rich colors, and contrast are a highlight to this film. Zombieland was shot on the Panavision Genesis Camera system. A camera system built for shooting Motion pictures digitally. this is hands down one of the best digital cinema cameras made today. (4.75 out of 5) The Blu-Ray AQ is a DTS HD-MA 5.1 track that i found to be a tad loud at times when it comes to the sound fx. The dialog and soundtrack have a nice balanced mix, but the sound fx can be quite loud at times. (4 out of 5) The BR exclusive PiP BTS track is a nice tidbit to have, but is partly a re-hash of some of the special features also found on the disc. For those who own the Play Station 3 there are Zombieland themes, however please note Zombieland will require you to update your PS3 to firmware version 3.01 or higher.

      Fun film, but not a true "Steelbook"

      So, the 4/5 star rating is not for the film - It's for the product. The film is a fantastic, fun, and stupid ride through one of the better of the many zombie franchises. Not winning any academy awards, but its unpretentious presentation is definitely a winner among my friends and family. The positive: This is a good blu-ray. Sound and picture are what I would expect from a good, physical medium. The picture is about the best presentation that I would expect could easily be extracted from the source, and the sound is balanced well. It's not demo material, but it's a big step up from DVD and streaming options (Comparing @mazon, particularly) in clarity. The negative: This will sound a bit nit-picky, but it needs to be said... BestBuy has a habit of labeling everything in a metal box as a [Steelbook] in their product listings, and then have too few images to back it up. Any "REAL" steelbook is built by a European company, called Scanavo, and has a particular style and construction, generally considered to be the highest quality of a handful of options for metal box packaging. This product is actually a slightly different package, made by the Star company, called a "MetalPak"... Unless the product description changes, the label of [Steelbook] is misleading, and I think that it merits at least a loss of a star. Using a trademarked and copyrighted name and then delivering a competing product is not cool. May seem a little thing if you're not a collector, but if that's the case, no one will make you buy a Steelbook anyhow. The included picture shows the spine difference on the common metal packaging types as of 2017/2018 in the US and European markets. Conclusion: Fun film, sub-par packaging for the current product description (Product labeled as Steelbook on the website, but is a Star MetalPak).

      Zombieland

      Zombieland: {MAY contain unavoidable minor spoilers} Zombieland begins with a narration by Columbus (Jesse Eisenberg) as he tells you how the people came to be inhabited by mostly Zombies. The humans that are left are being picked off: picked over if you will by the zombies. Hey, zombies have to eat too you know. Columbus is trying to survive thinking he may be the only person left that is still normal. At some point, Columbus encounters Tallahassee (Woody Harrelson) another person trying to survive in this new Zombie world. Tallahassee is a sort of loner who is just having way to much fun killing Zombies. Reluctant as he may be, Tallahassee and Columbus travel buddies, making their way across the country. Columbus and Tallahassee at one point discover two sisters who are trying to get to Los Angeles to find their parents. They are Wichita (Emma Stone) and Little Rock (Abigail Breslin) and tell a wild tale. They convince the guys that they need a ride and of course the guys agree. But what they do not realize until it is too late is that these girls ‘have’ in fact conned them. Conned them out of their car, their food, their weapons and well I guess their man feelings as well. Seems Columbus may have this thing for Wichita. The guys eventually catch up with the girls who give them another sob story and again, the guys agree to take them along. They are now in California and Tallahassee takes them to the only house he knows who really lives there. The house is just what he thinks it will be a safe house. The house turns out to be owned by Bill Murray. And yes, Bill does make a cameo appearance and it is perfect. Murray is a riot in this role and well I am not going to tell you the details of his bit except that it is hysterical and typical Bill Murray. After a restful night, well let us just say con me once, shame on you; con me twice, shame on me. Yes, that’s right. The guys got taken once again, Columbus now getting his heart broken. Wichita and Little Rock are now on their way to Los Angeles in search of this amusement park they used to go to with their folks when they were kids. It is here that they hope to reunite with their parents, whom they hope are there looking for them as well. Once at the amusement park, Wichita decides to make the most of this trip by turning on the power to the park. The lights come on, the rides begin to move and the girls, well they just want to have some fun. Unbeknownst to the girls, when the lights come on, the Zombies come out of hiding. It seems they can sense fresh food in the park. What happens when Wichita and Little Rock realize while going round and round on the Ferris wheel that the Zombies have found them? The girls race around the park ending up on this ride that goes up and then speeds down to just above the ground. Wichita fixes the controls to mainly keep them at the top. They are shooting the Zombies but at some point, there are more Zombies than bullets. Meanwhile, back at the Murray house, Columbus and Tallahassee prepare to go their separate ways but in the end they follow the girls to the amusement park. What happens there ends up a free for all on the Zombies. That is all I can say so not to spill the beans over the entire film. What I can say is Zombieland is a total hoot and I loved it completely. Zombie movies can be many things. They can be just blood & guts, no substance, substance but boring as hell or they can have some substance and make you laugh and enjoy the whole thing, no matter how silly it may seem. This is Zombieland. The cast of real humans, all five (5) of them hold their own in this film. Jesse Eisenberg and Emma Stone work well together as the teens who at some point wonder if they were meant to be. Abigail Breslin is all grown up and ready to do some hurt on the Zombies as well. Bill Murray is well, Bill Murray. And Woody Harrelson as Tallahassee is brilliant. His character is so macho and yet such as wus at times. You really have to laugh at some of the things he does in this film. Overall, Zombieland is a load of fun and worth the view on the big screen. Running time is One hour and 40 minutes seen at 12:01 A.M. Friday, October 2nd, 2009 Scale of 1 – 5 give this a 4 ¾ (A-)

      "This Twinkie thing isn't over"

      Yet another take on the zombie apocalypse. However, like Sean Of The Dead (another excellent film) did for he UK, it adds a comedic twist that gives it fresh "life" (so to speak). It's the classic story of the struggle for survival in the good'ol USofA when it all hits the fan after the dead have risen. Apparently derived from a proposed tv show that even FOX passed on (go figure), it's the story of a young man who's ever growing list of survival rules (wonderfully highlighted in digital effects) & a shotgun help him to stay alive. In his travels he meets a seemingly reckless guy who takes great delight in the dispatching of the undead, but their strenuous friendship is tested when they meet two sisters who have their own unique rules of survival. The tv show also would've had a "Zombie Kill Of The Week" in every episode - watch for it in the flick. PLEASE DO NOT REVEAL THE SURPRISE GUEST STAR because when it happens, you will be so surprised that if you were told in advance it will probably spoil the moment. It's THAT worth it. Also, stick around through the credits for the easter egg after them. Language, violence & gore makes this unsuitable for younger viewers.

      Beware: Not a Steelbook as Advertised!

      Contrary to the store description, this is not a Steelbook, but actually a MetalPak, which is of a much lower quality than Steelbooks. Any Steelbook collector should be able to spot this immediately, but for those who aren't, it's easy to tell one from the other by looking at the spine of the case. The Steelbook has a nice indentation, with a plastic cover over it with the movie title and and other information printed on it. The MetalPak has an ugly, uncovered spine with hinges exposed and a crease down the middle, forcing the title, and all other details, to be pushed off-center. Best Buy needs to be aware of these differences and label their products correctly.

      Not Your Typical, Zombie Scare Flick!

      Let me start off by saying that I'm a huge zombie fan. Whether they're Romero's slow-moving shamblers or the fast-moving runners from Return of the Living Dead / 28 Days Later, I will give any zombie movie a try. Enter Zombieland, which when I heard about it, I instantly thought of that direct-to-DVD drivel you see on the rental store shelf that can barely pass as a B-movie. After watching the trailer however, I was genuinely intrigued. Luckily, my friend managed to get her hands on a few preview passes and what I saw was one of the most fun and enjoyable movies I've seen in years. I'll say it now: This movie is NOT scary. If you go in expecting scares and frights, you're in the wrong place. While there's the occasional "boo" scare, Zombieland is a horror-comedy in the vein of Evil Dead II, The Return of the Living Dead, Shaun of the Dead, etc. As a matter of fact, the director was inspired by Shaun of the Dead to make Zombieland. The horror-comedy mixture is is a very hard thing to pull off, but this movie does it pretty well, leaning more towards the comedy. New spin on an old formula.

      I'm not sure whether or not the negative reviews or even the positive reviews should be what you base your decision on for getting this film. I guess if you are basing your purchase on these reviews, take from both sides -you'll notice most of the negative reviews don't offer any details to support their argument. With that out of the way, I can tell you if you liked Shaun of the Dead, you'll like Zombieland -I like to think of it as the American equivalent. I won't tell you to buy the film but renting is definitely an option, and if you like it enough to buy it afterward, great! The action is good, and the story is not exactly the most complex but it shouldn't be. It's just an adventure film with great dynamic characters and well, zombies! The pacing is great as well, and never drags on. If you are: a zombie fan, a comedy fan, or a Woody fan, this movie is a must see.

      I don't use the P word very often but this was about as close to perfection as a movie gets. Don't get me wrong - this isn't going to win best picture, nor should it, but it should go down as a cult classic. It was near perfection for a few reasons. It's exactly what you think it's going to be. There's no hokey underlying plot that the writers try to cleverly slip in. The cast was fantastic. It had enough of a story to keep you interested, and there were some fun twists. And, most importantly, it ended when it should have. In fact, dare I say, I could have watched another 15 minutes. The blu-ray version is very nice looking. I didn't expect it to make that much of a difference but it does. Especially the opening credits. Zombies in super slow-mo in blu-ray is worth it, trust me.
