Land Of The Dead

Any Romero fans go see this and want to comment on it?

Guess I'm the only zombie fan on the forum.

I'm not a huge zombie fan but somehow I always end up going to see all zombie films (drawn to them like a zombie to brains), and I think I've seen most if not all of Romero's zombie faire. Land of the Dead is by far his best work I think. As a film it's pretty entertaining - John Leguizamo, as always, steals the movie. As a zombie film, it surprisingly showed me some new stuff, which I thought would be impossible at this point.

Overall it's definitely worth the price of admission. It's not literature, but hell, it's about zombies!

I'm a big Romero fan and I kinda dug it. Unlike most fans of Romero, I think Day of the Dead is the best of the zombie films. I think Land is decent but not as good as the other three. None of the human characters are particularly memorable and the zombie "leader" overacts quite a bit. All of your sympathies end up lying with the zombies and I guess it was supposed to be that way. I don't know. I'll probably buy the DVD when it comes out but I doubt I'll watch it much.

I think zombie films are hampered by censorship that is stricter than for games. I have been playing Half Life 2 all week - now those howling jumping Zombies are the stuff of nightmares!

I'm writing a zombie screenplay right now. I think zombies will always be in.

Oh yes. I still try to see everyone, even though they do scare me to death.

This film was such a disapointment on every level. I'm pretty eask when it comes to films; especially UNDEAD Films and this film is just downright crap.

What a let-down. Romero is trying to kill the very genre he created. This should have been his Magnus Opus and instead is a flop of epic proportions. Romero never has been a good filmmaker anyway but this is crap.

I was let-down and expected so much.

Oh well.
