Default Zombieland

has anyone seen this movie? it is so epic

Here is the beginning of my fluff for my Iron Warriors Eighth Grand Company http://www.heresy-online.net/forums/...ad.php?t=51842

"A fortress is a living thing: the commander its brain, the walls its bones, the sensors its eyes and ears, the troops its blood, their weapons its fists. This tells us two things: If one organ fails, the whole dies. And if the whole dies, no single organ can survive alone."

It's quite possibly one of the funniest zombie movies I've ever seen!! The secret special guest Cameo was probably my favourite bit. What'd you like best?

I haven't seen it yet but I doubt it'll come close to Shaun of the Dead for laughs.

Can't wait to see it though, I watched Doghouse last night which had its moments.

That depends on whether you prefer American or British humour. Having watched both, I can appreicatte both for what they are. I will say I think Zombieland would hedge out the win on a few factors. Although I wouldn't want to spoil anything. ;)

Pondering...

It's very good. Some room for improvement, but good all the same.

The cameo wasn't all that secret. Most people keeping an eye on this movie would have known about it for months.

The wife and I haven't laughed that hard at a movie SINCE Shaun of the Dead.

Currently Playing:

I suppose that's the difference between American and British humor. I thought Shaun of the Dead was funny, but not hilarious. Zombieland had me laughing almost the entire time

I guess we Americans like seeing shit get fucked up more than our bros across the pond

Yanks love their slapstick.
Limes love their references.

Everybody loves fart jokes.

Definitely one of the best things I've seen in the theater for a long time.
