I'm not a Brad Pitt fan....But when I saw the previews for World War Z, I knew right away that the movie was about zzzzzombies! I turned to my hubby, who was anxiously awaiting for his Star Trek movie to start...and gave him the "thumbs up" sign, that I definitely wanted to see THAT movie!
I've always been a zombie fan. I remember when 'Night of the Living Dead' came on tv when I was just 9 yrs old...I was sitting in front of my TV cheering for the undead...Leaving my parents wondering if they should discipline me...Or take me straight to the shrink.
I have since seen almost every zombie flick out there.
Here's the spoiler alert.....
So the zombies in THIS movie didn't go after people who had some sort of disease...or illness. Which brought my husband and I into a discussion this morning.
He has a leg/foot that did not develop correctly -- and is now an amputee. Drs arent sure what caused this "abnormality" ... Genetic or not, it has caused him many issues.
Me...? I have Neurofibromatosis. Yes- a genetic disorder.
In the film, people with cancer or other life threatening issue were passed by. Not seen by these ravenous, blood thirsty, undead monsters.
As my husband and I were waking up this morning...the conversation began...
(We have the weirdest pillow talk, I know)
Would I be passed up by these zombies? Not good enough?
Anyway...When it comes down to it, I know that I would never survive a zombie attack. I would actually probably be the first to go. Me...the one with 6 kids surrounding her, probably trying to flee from the local wal-mart.
I don't run fast enough, or have the skills to shoot, stab, or cut the heads off a fast-moving, tooth combing kill machine.
I REALLY enjoyed this movie though...WAY more than my hubby. It was fast moving and got right into the Zombie-Action. No waiting for some drawn out, boring plot.
And still....Like when I was 9....found myself feeling sorry for the zombies. (sure, I felt bad to the people too...but, zombies are people too, right? At least they WERE)
