    I saw this movie yesterday and it was really awesome. Its a great zombie movie filled with tons of funny moments.

    Has anyone else seen it yet? If you haven't seen this movie yet I recommend you go see it asap!

    Just came back from it. Abso-fucking-lutely hilarious, from start to finish.

    Judging by the first rule of the movie, if we ever have a zombie apocalypse, I'm pretty well fucked.

    Just watched it last night, I couldn't help but to sing along and play drums to the song :lol:

    But I have to admit, this movie is worth every penny to watch at the theaters and to buy it!! I can't wait to get it on Blu Ray

    +100 for featuring any pre 88' Metallica in a soundtrack. Liked the movie, had some really funny stuff in there but wasn't as side-splittingly hilarious as I thought it was going to be.

    Everyone of my buddies who'd seen it said it was the funniest movie EVARRR!!! I went in with no expectations and I love all kinds of movies so I've got no gripes with the genre or mixing action/comedy or gross-out stuff, etc.

    I just found some parts to be lagging a little bit, some of the car ride sequences were either a little long or didn't have as many jokes as they could have. I thought the BM stuff was great and should have been expanded upon.

    Overall, good movie, definitely not the funniest Zombie flick as far as I'm concerned. That still goes to Shawn Of The Dead. How's that for a slice of fried gold?????

    Damn, Rich, I gotta disagree with you, I felt that the pacing in "Zombieland" was more steady than that of "Shawn of the Dead." Though the inside jokes and pokes at other zombie movies go to "Shawn of the Dead." "Zombieland" was much a low brow humor factory than "Shawn of the Dead." Care for a Hostess Snowball? ;) There are a few sports and a band I'll never be able to listen to, let alone watch without snickering uncontrollably after "Zombieland."

    I'm still laughing at a friend's comment about there being too much blood and gore...

    Yeah they wanted extras for it too and I found that out a month after they filmed it :(

    I have a terrible feeling that I will be disappointed after watching Shaun Of The Dead so many times, my favorite movie ATM, I'm going through a bit of a zombie fest.

    Indeed, it's "Shaun of the Dead", cool movie indeed, loved it.

    Pretty curious for this one too, probably won't make the cinema's here, so I'll have to wait for a Blu-Ray edition one day...

    Saw this just the other night and it was fucking great!

    It really seems like the writers sat down with every zombi movie ever made watched them all and decided which cliches to avoid and to take the piss out of which imo is something more film makers need to do in order to progress within the genre.
    Apart from the way a certain character dies nothing in the movie came across as predictable and it didn't slow down or get too quick to throw in new plot elements plus it's the only zombi movie that ends on a happy note without seeming cheesy I just hope that George Romero watches it and realises THIS is how to do a zombi movie.
