(Brief) Movie review: Zombieland

Just got back from Zombieland -- the greatest movie in the history of motion pictures, featuring the greatest cameo appearance by a celebrity I've ever seen. Zombies! Automatic weapons! Zombie clowns! And not just one but the two best lines delivered by a dying man EVER.

Hyperbole? Perhaps. But I laughed my butt off at the eye-popping (and ghoul-slaughtering) antics of Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Emma Stone and Abigail Breslin (the little kid who starred in Little Miss Sunshine).

What a hoot!

Now, I know Zombieland won't appeal to everyone, what with it's off-kilter sense of humor and blood-soaked sense of the absurd. If you can watch the trailer and not crack a smile, then this flick's not for you. On the other hand, if you laugh out loud, I suggest you head down to your local cineplex and settle in for a wild ride.

But do me a favor: Don't be like the parents in our theater who brought their three, preschool-aged kids to this splatterfest. This one's for grownups, albeit deeply immature grownups.

You should entertain a "Best Zombie Kill" forum. I personally favor the triple-kill in the amusement park, the mechanism being The Rattler, an oscillating pendulum-type ride.

If Zombie's aren't human then maybe they are "animals." If so, could this film possibly violate Elton Gallegly's ban on films that depict the sadistic demise of animals?
