Zombieland

Updated on June 17, 2013

Enjoy the little things in life.....like killing Zombies! Woo Hoo

In "Zombieland", there's the quick and the dead. Having to endure constant hardships for survival among the infested zombie planet, once known as Earth. As the human race is nearly wiped from existence, humanity endures a constant struggle to survive....even against each other. As many humans, have become isolated from the rest of the world, in their own need to for survival. "Zombieland", follows a young teenager, named Columbus (Jesse Eisenberg), whom eventually joins Tallahassee (Woody Harrelson) along with two mischievous girls, Wichita (Emma Stone) and Little Rock (Abigail Breslin). Together they all struggle to survive Zombieland, while enduring trust issues with one another, which leads to Tallahassee and Columbus to rescue the girls, when they run away to enjoy an amusement park. Unfortunately for them, the zombies decide to join the fun too. Now before many readers starters start to think, "Oh my god. Another lame unoriginal zombie movie where the humans are on the brink of extinction...blah, blah, and such." "Zombieland" isn't like that. Instead, its more a tongue and cheek comedy that pokes fun at the whole zombie film genre itself. Making fun of the ways a person could kill a zombie, like having a piano drop on top of them or taking a pair garden scissors and cutting off their heads. Or my personal favorite, taking a giant sledgehammer and just hitting one in the balls hard. Featuring dynamic main characters that are the completely different from one another that keep the film interesting. On one hand you have Columbus, whom essentially has a lot of neurotic phobias that keep him safe from zombies as he's developed a series of rules to survive Zombieland. Then you have Tallahassee, a gun toting bad-ass whom only joy in life is killing zombies and eating twinkies. Then lets not forget about two female protagonists, Wichita and Little Rock, both seemingly sweet and innocent at first but if your not too careful, they'll rob you at the first chance. Such characters mixed in together make for a great chemistry throughout the movie. Plus, the slow motion was used rather well in this film as well. Although, over the years, I've come to hate slow motion in movies because they're so over done since everyone decided to rip it off from "The Matrix", a while back. However, "Zombieland" slow motion is used more for comedic purposes as opposed to dramatic effect like previous films, which makes the use of it quite interesting and funny. In one scene as Columbus explains his various rules to survive Zombieland, it shows a fat guy running away from a zombie but is soon devoured, as the zombie proves too fast for him. I know that makes me sound bad for laughing at his expense, but the way it was portrayed was rather comical. Ruben Fleischer did a great job creating just the right amount of horror and comedy to make the film interesting, while poking fun at some of the genres stereo types. Indeed, "Zombieland" is one of the funniest films of the year.

      that's cool. well hope you enjoy the movie. just a warning though, it's very violent and gory in some parts, but it's very good for what it is. :)
