My spoiler free review of ZOMBIELAND

It’s AWESOME, go see it.

In fact is its so AWESOME for the next month I’ll be attempting to use Woody Harrelson’s character’s catch phrase “Time to nut up, or shut up” as often as I can when I post.

For those overseas readers who think Australia is some tropical paradise I would reveal as well as having some of the most venomous spiders, snakes and jellyfish in the world we also have to wait until 3 DECEMBER to see this excellent training film.

In other Zombie media news the boys and girls over at Dreadcentral report that AMC is to get one of my favorite we_don’t_spare_on_the_despair directors Frank Darabont of the movie ‘The Mist’ to write and produce a screen version of Robert Kirkman’s The Walking Dead. A excellent comix about life after the Zombie Apocalypse. It’s not just the zombie slayage I come for but for the conversations, like this one.

But if you though McCarthy’s The Road was bleak.. then this may not be for you.


  1. Totally not gonna watch the trailer man, sorry. Don't wanna know NOTHING about it. But from what I gather it deserves a place along side Shawn of The Dead, 30 Days of Night (not Zombie I know, but there was some solid survival techniques), 300 (just cause that was Sparta), and Rambo (2008).

  2. I saw it last Night!!! Freakin awesome! It was every bit as good as Shaun of The Dead…maybe better. I laughed my fool head off and the surprise cameo was amazing.

    So good, I'm going again. The gore was spectacular and you're right about the "nut up or shut up", I will do the same.

    I didn't think it was possible to put a new twist on the subject but the director did an amazing job of keeping it fresh.

    LOVED IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Btw, I going as "Angela" from "Night of the Demons" for Halloween this year. Thought you'd dig that.

  3. I saw it the night it came out with Amanda, and it definitely lived up to the hype. It was hilarious! As the credits rolled down the screen I said to Amanda, "Now this movie right here, if Barnesm were to ever write a zombie movie, this is what it would be."

    I was hoping you'd post a review about it!

  4. Moko,
    Fair enough. Some movies these days if you see the trailer you have seen all the best bits. But not ZOMBIELAND.

    You will so rock as Angela, I assume more the 2009 version rather than the 1988 version.

    Great to hear you and Ms Amanda enjoyed it. Its the sort of zombie movie I WISH I could right.

  5. Definitely hangin' for this one!

    • As are we all

  6. No, sir. This movie should be honored by your endorsement.

  7. I’ve thumbed through parts of the ‘Walking Dead’ series, and it is bleak.

    I’ve also listened to some stuff by the Grateful Dead that was bleak as well.

    • mmm Bleak, I guess the dead in the title is a bit of a give away.

  8. Kind of get the feeling that Woody’s entire career, actually his entire life has been building to this movie.

    Looking forward to seeing it espically now it has the barnesm seal of approval.

    • I can’t imagine how Woody could ever do better than this.

  9. Wait … you saw it but it won't be released there until Dec.?

    I saw it this weekend … it completely and utterly rocked. The cameos were hilarious.

    Woody Harrelson is a god.

    and how sucky is it that the major cinema chains won't release it till december.

    Pantsless Ponderer
    no, no sir It it I who am honored by YOUR endorsement.

    The Rhino
    Shhhh, there are some questions better not asked, all I can say is 'techhnical consultant'. I've said too much.

  11. Looks great, I’ll just have to wait for it to come out.

    • Yes, wait that’s what we all have to do.

  12. Not too long to go….

    Hmm that comic might be up my street, might listen to soem leonard choen at the same time..for light relief

    • I find the early work of Nick Cave or Roger Waters particularly appropriate music to read “the Walking Dead’ to.

  13. fantastico!
