Luigi and King Koopa rematch!!!

Rob @ 12:18 AM

I spent an entire morning attempting to get out to Sayville, with public transport biting me every step of the way. Eventually made it alive a little after 1PM, and spent the afternoon reading cards for a fundraiser.

Interesting thing about that - every single person I read for was dealing with an issue that I am, and I ended up giving tons of advice I really need to take to heart myself.

*looks up* Yeah, okay, real subtle. Heh!

Later Fina, Sergey, and I saw "Land of the Dead." What a ride! Best zombie movie in a long, long time.

It's a really interesting take on the zombie concept. Unlike pretty much every other zombie flick, this is no sudden invasion humanity is unprepared for blah blah. This is what would happen if the 1968 version of "Night of the Living Dead" had happened, and not stopped. Where would humanity be after four decades of worldwide zombies? What sort of evolving would the zombies themselves do? Now we know.

A couple of glaring cases of stupid-character-syndrome abound (tip: if you're ever skulking around a zombified world at night trying not to get eaten by zombies, refrain from wearing stereo headphones with the volume turned way up) but great effects, a wicked story, a mostly great cast, and that undeniable George-Romero-ness of it means if you're at all into horror movies, you must see this now.

Oh, and old-school MSTies will applaud the triumphant return of Megaweapon to the big screen.
