The critters in 28 Days weren't really zombies in the classic sense (i.e. animated corpses), were they?

no they weren't, they were "infected".
could be killed normally without having o shoot them in the head.

ymmv

Yeah, I know, but even still, same same if you ask me, sub-human crazed and dazed, people "infected" or "non-dead", whatnot, coming to bite you or eat your brains, with a defficiency in intelligence, blah blah blah.

Either way, makes for a good time with an AK, an 8 pack of mags, and a spare case of ammo in the trunk.

That was a great movie right up to the point where they met the soldiers. Then it did a 180 and turned to utter shit. It was so bad that half way through production they made story boards for a completely new ending that would have eliminated the soldiers altogether (it's in the DVD extra features).

I guess I just couldn't believe the British Army would loose all discipline in 28 days. Or that men would cheer about an infected getting blown up by a mine when they just got splattered with that person's infected blood.

If you want to watch a good short zombieish movie watch this one. Then turn it off when they meet the soldiers.

I'm hearing you. But I really think if America was as small as the UK proper island. And most of it went to shit. And there was like no one left. Who knows.......?

And dude. we are talking about the British.............lol

Yup, good movie if you turn it off when they meet the soldiers.

A bicycle courrier taking out a squad of Royal Marines ruined it for me.

RE: 28 Days

It's because 'guns are bad, m-kay?'

The soldiers had guns, and they became corrupted, violent pedophile rapists because they were exposed to those evil guns.

If you noticed, the heros in the movie wouldn't use guns for any amount of time, they didn't even take any with them when they had the chance.

Wow, there's actually another arfcomer that loves this movie besides me.

I stopped asking about it when the zombie snobs explained to me it's not a real zombie movie, blah, blah, blah.



Wow, what expert critics we have here.

The Soldier part of the story pretty much made the movie. Yes, homeboy took them out, not directly though, their own crazy desires took them off guard, and the few infected finished them off.

It's a good movie, probably the best of it's type. And again,

It came from britain.

I loved how the movie showed how defenseless a society is when it can't arm itself. Served them right.

And LOTD was a good movie in my opinion, not as good as 28, or DOTD, but still good in it's own right. I bought a copy off ebay recently.

you know, I think some of you guys over analyze movies in an attempt to figure out their gun biad. It's just a movie. I don't think the writer was saying that guns made them corrupt or violent.

"28 Days Later" was a Great movie . Very well done acting and cinematography . Story was great as well even the part with the soldiers . Look at NOLA it only took a few days for that area to fall apart and fall into Anarchy .

Yeah "Land of The Dead" was pretty poor . Parts were good but overal very poor . If Hopper is in a movie it usually blows .

it was a good movie.

take it or leave it.

they're making a sequel, although it's by different writers and a different director.

Actually, if I had the opportunity to take an SA-80, I'd probably leave it behind too.

Land of the Day was classic. If you try to fit it in with the Dawn remake you'll be dissappointed. If you watch it with the broader sense of romero's other movies it fits just fine. Its a campy b-movie.

If you ever get a chance to see "Redneck Zombies", do so. Low budget. Hillbillies get infected when they recycle toxic waste drums to use in their moonshine still. Then one of them drops acid. Its a great flick.

My wife's fear of Zombies is the only way i can justify owning a gun to her.

Although 28 Days was excellent I have to agree the Zombie is the grossest. it's an older movie and can be hard to find. But in all honesty, my all-time favorite zombie movie..."Shaun of the Dead." good zombies and funny as hell(if you like Brit humor.) If you haven't seen it, rent it!!
Link Posted: 1/18/2006 6:40:55 PM EDT
A really great and funny flick is "Dead Alive", its from new zeland, and the production quality is great. Its by Peter Jackson( new king kong, and the lord of the rings director). The new kong movie has a quaint reference to Dead Alive in the beginning of the movie.

They must have used several tractor trailor loads of fake blood. There is a scene where the hero straps a push mower to his check and just starts walking through the zombies.

+1 on Shaun. It takes zombies to make Brit humor work. So many good scene in that one. Like when they find the gun and can't shoot worth a crap. My favorite line is "Lots!".

I just saw Shaun of the Dead for the first time. Righteously hilarious!
