CGI in those pics look worse than the gameplay of black ops.

/use real practical effects- less cgi. Somehow is always noticeable in a movie like this. Case in point any recent laughable Romero zombie flick.

This movie will make a mockery of the book. Ugh.

Zombie DJ: Well I don't know about YOU guys, but I'm judging the ENTIRE movie based on a 30 second trailer!
I'm so done!


I'm just setting my bar really farking low. Articles on Fark mentioined that Lindelof was brought on to finish the script, and that Pitt wouldn't even speak with the director because he had no clue what he was doing. As a movie lover, this will lead to a disappointing 2 hrs or whatever. As a lover of the Audio book, it's a falsified labeled shell. Both sides have reasons to speak dejectedly.

Plus the article had video saying the real trailer will be out thursday. Its a trailer for a trailer. I'm offended on a third front as a Farker.

Finally, fast zombie oblig:

What the hell does that preview for that movie have to do with World War Z the book? I knew it was going to be bad, I knew it was going to be nothing like the book. But god damn thats bad. DiCaprio and Pitt were battling it out for the soul of this book that brooks whored out to the highest bidder. If I knew it was going to be farked up this bad I woulda thrown a few bucks DiCaprio's way just to help out.

None of my money, you get none now. This is supposed to be a documentary/history piece, not a farking brad pitt ego trip.

That looked terrible.

It looks like a CGI shiat-fest. Given all of the production problems, the director and producers being not sure if the zombies would shuffle or run a week before filming, months of re-shoots, and Brad Pitt eventually being so fed-up he refused to speak with the director, this will probably bomb.

Zombies have to move slow and lethargic?

Looking forward to a WWZ/L4D-type movie myself.

I don't agree.
Zombies aren't the main character of movies.
Vampires are. Werewolves are. But zombies are the thing that moves the plot for OTHER characters.
Like disaster movies. Floods, earthquakes, zombies.....

Looks like farking garbage. Thanks for farking up another good idea, Hollywood. Motherfarkers.

I was really hoping for a Ken Burns' style mini-series to allow full use of the text and not have to cut anything out - perfect for cable channels. Alas, my hopes were chewed when I saw what was in the box.

You clearly haven't read the books, or even heard about them in passing. You're an idiot, please don't speak on subjects you are obviously ignorant on. Also, eat shiat and die.

"We need zombies, lots of them, but I don't want to pay a bunch of real people. Get me those CGI guys."

"Which ones?"

"Who is available....and cheap?"

"The guys that did the 'I Am Legend' monsters."

"Perfect!"

They're not just running, it looks like they used a ton of cgi to make the zombie horde flow like water. So dumb.

If there were a feature television serial show about earthquakes, and entire genres of fictional literature (term used loosely) about earthquakes, and movie after movie about earthquakes, and every other person and their dog dressed up and went to an "Earthquake Ball" for Halloween, and if every internet hack said "Hey, _____ is cool, but you know what would make it cooler?

Wow that looked crappy. it looks like friggin katamari damaci with zombies. how hard is it to do a zombie movie without CGI? its just makeup. You would think the cost of a couple hundred extras with makeup would be lower than the ridiculous amount of CGI that is used there. what a shame.
 
2012-11-06 12:18:57 PM
I am sick and tired of goddamn zombies. However, due to Farkers talking about it so much, I read World War Z this past summer. Good, if not great. Made for some nice junk food, and was fun. As many have noted previously and in this thread, it would have made for an interesting miniseries, where each episode is a new chapter, an exploration of some other aspect of the war. So much to work with in that format. Trying to make a 2 hour movie from the book is a fool's errand, and the filmmakers obviously didn't try. They just took one theme from the book, bent it beyond all recognition, and came away with something that shouldn't even be allowed to call itself what it does.

Goddamn, I'm sick of zombies.

Umm yeah, I did. It was mildly entertaining, but I don't think each chapter requires its own series.
That's just the TV-watching couch-addict in you talking, I assume.


My comment on it was that slow zombies are boring...but I guess reading comprehension fails you.

Fast zombies vs slow zombies..... can't we get a moderate speed zombie. Maybe one that walks at a brisk leasurely pace, like when you are late for an appointment but you do not want to bowl over a group of small kids in your way (as much as you would want to... social decorum bedamned.) Or maybe zombies that walk like speedwalkers at the mall at 7am.... it could be explained by some type of contamination at a supository factory... Oh well just spitballing here but why only shamble or able to do a 4 min mile for ever and ever..

And yet rather than just shut up about something you have no idea about, you try your "politics thread" best to shift attention away from the fact that you're obviously wrong. If you actually HAD read the books, you'd know that Brooks goes out of his way in chapter 1 of the ZSHB to describe that voodoo zombies and "runners" simply do not exist in his zombie world.

As for the mini-series, I never stated that it should be, but as evidenced by all the production stills and trailer screenshots, they utterly failed to capture any part of the book in the film, so clearly it WOULD have been better off as a mini-series, and it has nothing to do with this laziness you've assumed about me. It has everything to do with how the book was written, but since you clearly haven't read it, you'd have no idea what I'm talking about. Go ahead. Run to Wikipedia and read the plot synopsis so you can hurry back and impress no one with how you "totally read it" because Scott Wanio and LMOE! And then to make your blinding ignorance worse, you put WWZ and L4D into the same "type" because, well, there's zombies in both of them, so clearly they're identical!

In fact I'm fairly certain the reason zombies were used in low rent movies is that all you need to do is smear on a little dirt, maybe some fake blood, and tear the clothes a little bit, then have the person shamble and grunt. I can't imagine a cheaper monster to film, other than an invisible ghost.

Relax. Take it easy on him. He is a little upset that all of this resurgent interest in the Zombie genre has taken attention from his favorite genre, the Sparkly Vampire genre.

It's like they made a movie based solely on the cover of the book.

"Okay, there's some brown, a big title that says World War Z, and some blood. I'm thinking roiling seas of CGI undead!"

"But sir, the book is really more about the peop--"

"I said "ROILING SEAS OF CGI UNDEAD"!"

. . . it's like someone had some water effects and replaced the water with zombies. Do not want.

I remember reading the book and thinking that it would make an awesome series or fake documentary. This? This I do not like.

Me, too. They have their place. DotD remake was awesome in my opinion! So were the 28 Days movies. But their place is NOT in a movie about a book that goes to great lengths to emphasize that the zombie in that setting are the shambling horde variety. It's a giant "fark You!" to Brooks Zombie fans everywhere.

2012-11-06 01:33:29 PM
Ugh.

That whole "race against time" bit seems to contradict the "ten years after" theme of the book, no? They said they had problems figuring out how to translate the reflective documentary style of the book, and it looks like they didn't.
 
2012-11-06 01:35:18 PM
screw you guys. all i expect out of this movie is a big budget OMFG ZOMBIES movie. I expect Pitt to deliver that. It won't be the book. That is fine. Walking Dead is not the books and it is doing fine (hell the last episode finally for the most part reached the quality of the books). The zombie flow looked cool and is something we haven't quite seen before, and I for one could use a new take. I love WWZ the book, and the audio book is for the most part great (altho some shiat you can write but can't say, some of the dialog in that audiobook should have been re-written to reflect how a person would speak) but the book would for the most part be boring as hell if it was filmed as is.... and do we really need a filmed sequence of a blind japanese man killing zombies? or an interview with a child talking about how her church was over-run? All I ask from this movie is a fantastic Yonkers battle. The rest Pitt can fill in.

The movie will likely be very good, even if not the book.

The book is written as a mini series. A series of stories, unrelated characters and places. HBO should of snagged it up and just did each story as an hour long program.

2012-11-06 01:47:55 PM
I don't know what everyone is complaining about. It's going to be awesome. Didn't you see the clip of those thousands of zombies pouring over each other while stuff exploded in the background? Sure the book had character development and insight, but you can't put that on screen. If Avatar and Prometheus have taught me anything it's that CGI makes everything better.
 
2012-11-06 01:48:43 PM
It looks pretty cool to me... I consider the book that last great thing in the genre. Since then, its all been played out. I don't watch Walking Dead.
