It was a good movie.
Not really good, just good.
I let my expectations of the story line affect my opinion. Which i’m never doing again.
Who knows, if I didn’t do that, my opinion probably would have been different.
It wasn’t as witty as I had hoped.
I expected the zombies to be stereotypical zombies, without an inner monologue, which wasn’t the case.
The main character ‘R’ was kinda already not a zombie from the get go.
Okay i’m done trashing the movie, I loved the actors, I loved that I had no idea who the main characters were played by and I kind of get really excited to see
any of the girls from “America’s Next Top Model” show up on the big screen, but that’s just me being an ANTM fan girl, don’t judge to harshly please.
The idea that love cures all, isn’t incredibly new, but the way it was used was brilliant.
It almost feels like it could be plausible, now only if Mythbusters could test it out someday.
3 out of 5 stars
Warm Bodies was a funny rom-com, I mainly enjoyed the music that the main character ‘R’ had played throughout the film.
It’s worth watching and it would be a good V-day film to see with your sweetie.
Check it you will not be disappointed.
Story gives it 3.5 stars out of 5, it receives this rating only because it was very predictable but none the less good.
First thoughts on this movie… “oh great, the Twilight-theme raped my beloved zombies”
I mean, what the hell?!
They already took the sorta cool, sorta badass vampires and turned them into annoying, scrawny, teeny bopper’s wet dreams.
Now zombies?!?!?! what’s next teen mummies?!?! and warewolv……………… oh yeah…
BUT once I got past that annoying premise… I got on board.
What the hell, right? (oh, and Teresa Palmer totally looks like Kristen lazy face Stewart)
Come on, the movie has the director of 50/50 (Jonathan Levine), bad ass John Malkovich, and freakin’ Rob Corddry!… it can’t be all that bad right?
Turns out, it’s ‘sorta kinda new spin on the cliched zombie flick’ works, works well.
But… this is the only movie of it’s kinda that I’ll allow.
Hollywood will have to wait another generation before bastardizing another movie with the Twilight taint and shoving it down my eye holes.
3 out of 5. (but barely)
