I think I would have left the city for starters!

Why leave the city with all that canned food and other crap right at hand? I would have found a better location with a better field of fire.

I think I would have taken over a large building with steel doors. Remember the premis was that the night creatures would not use any technological tools. So I would weld up the doors during the daylight hours, disable most of the elevators. Get a big dump truck and load up with gravel and sand and then pour concrete in the stairwells. Use a small Bobcat to pile up gravel and dirt and whatever agains t the inside of all the lower floors to prevent molitov cocktails. Then with night vision gear up about ten floors spend my evenings around my own sniper range. After a while the need to reach out farthur would require larger calibur weapons! Also teach myself to fly helicopters and then roadtrip till I found a gunship! Then you could fly out of town on camping trips! I could live alone just fine! [rail]Railgun....

Right on! I would have gotten some NVG’s and a flame-thrower and got those f-ckers in their nest alien style. Not to mention capturing the leader and making him watch TV until his head exploded. I would also perform experiments on the other ghouls.

You are on the right track but I would have made a found a nice field of fire and set up my own sniper range. The next step is turn some of those infected kids into suicide bombers. The final thing I would do is keep 2 or 3 grenades on me a all times in case I was injured, then I would kill all those around kamikazi style.

I would dodge the javelin at the end of the movie and kill the ghouly bastard that threw it.

"Hot Little Momma" has my vote. [@:D] How many of you are old enough to remember when it first came out? I saw it as a kid when they were still using the old "M" rating system. That was before "R". Horrible location. The kids up in the hills had a way better deal. Remember the M2 with the sandbags? Great position. By the way, I have never seen apartments like that in LA. Looked more like NYC.

"How many of you are old enough to remember when it first came out?" Me! Me! Liked it then, like it now. I believe I would have moved just far enough out of the city for safety and still been able to return for supplies. Also would use more military vehicles for transportation. Sooner or later, the available food supply would run out or spoil, and you would have to begin to grow your own. Meat would be a problem, but I wonder if fish were affected by the Biowar scenario depicted. It appears all air breathing life was killed, so plant life would suffer from lack of pollination by birds and insects. Oh well, still a great movie.
