    I'm going to see World War Z later today. I usually have two schools of thought on a movie - one immediately after and almost a totally different take on it a day or two later.

    Usually my initial thoughts are overwhelmed by the movie - in an extreme way as loving it or hating it - but a day or two later, I come to my senses and can really pick a movie apart for what it is.

    I'm curious about this because the novel was very interesting... though the author claims it is similar to his novel in name only. That sucks. I know I prefer seeing the slow-moving zombies more than the fast ones. Fast ones don't make sense to me, frankly - if your body is deteriorating, how can the joints and such handle all that strain..?

    Superman Returns was on TV.

    Until they get to the boat, it's not a bad movie. I like the setting and style, and Routh as Clark/Superman. But the whole island idea is just stupid and shouldn't have been done, as well as the kid.

    I've come across that movie like 10 times on tv. Each time, they're on Lex Luthers boat. I have honest to god never seen any part of that movie where they aren't at sea.

    A read bad movie.

    Cheesy.

    Brandon Routh is an awful actor.

    I hate that movie. Why try to link it to those stupid old Superman movies? Stupid idea since you know... Those movies were awful.

    Just got back from watching World War Z.

    Overall... it was entertaining. My biggest issue is that I clearly saw the potential of it, but it simply didn't "get there". Now, I don't think this is a spoiler, but just in case:

    Frankly, I found myself cheering for the Israeli Soldier that joins him in the second half of the movie. Not an attractiveness-thing... I just liked her character, as simple as it was. Alright... she was definitely easy on the eyes. Screw it, I'm now a HUGE fan of her character. She made the film and didn't have to do a lot.

    I've heard rumors of making a second one, a chapter 2 of sorts... so maybe her character will become more prominent in a future movie. If a second one is made, this movie becomes better, by default. If not, it remains a "pretty good" movie. (my friends and I always joked about anyone labeling anything "pretty good". It usually meant, as far as a movie is concerned, it wasn't worth seeing in the theater, but rather on TV or rental.

    I tried to put the spoiler text on this... but couldn't find it. Oh well. So, that's my feelings on it, but I'll probably have a different/more thorough opinion on it in a day or two.

    6/10... if they make a sequel... 7.5/10

    EDIT: Nevermind, figured out the spoiler text...

    Just thought of some additional things...

    There wasn't any gore in this. You didn't see zombies tearing into flesh and ripping people apart... which I thought was good. You KNEW it was happening, but you didn't need to see it.
    The action was over-the-top. Half the time I couldn't really tell what was going on - shots were too tight, shaky and dark. I just nodded that it was happening and moved on. Wish they had tightened that up - as with many action movies.


    Ok, I'll probably think of more later... I'm sure all of you can't wait...

    VHS 2

    One of the coolest horror movies I've seen in awhile. Much better than the first one (I enjoyed the first one). 7/10 would buy and watch again with friends, if I had any.
