I don't like zombies

Of course, Alex turned on World War Z last night, just as I'm about to go to bed. I thought I would just watch a couple minutes of it and then be off to sleepy land. But, no. I got sucked in. It starts in Philly, on streets I know like the back of my hand (although their geography is all wrong) and it goes downhill from there. Very panicky, very "end of days" movie. Why do people like movies like this anyways? So, there are zombies everywhere and Brad Pitt has to go all over the world to save his family and the few remaining humans left on earth (of course it would be Brad Pitt who figures out how to save everyone, right?). What follows is a panicked situation where you have to continually suspend disbelief after disbelief (but they do a pretty good job of scaring the crap out of you). If you're looking for scary, this movie does it well. If you're looking for believable plotlines, good dialogue, or a well-thought-out story, look elsewhere. I hear the book is better.

However, I did awaken in the middle of the night, with a baby snuggled against my chest, to the sound of rain (!) outside our window. I thought, "That sounds like rain. But it doesn't rain here anymore, so there's no way it's rain. It's probably zombies".

  1. Um.... Wow. Haha.
    I can't watch movies where people are being chased so if this movie involves zombies chasing after people I guess that's that.
