kroonermanblack: WTF Indeed: Book: A real science-based account of how the world would react to a plague.
Movie: ZOMG Zombies! Brad Pitt will save us! Thank Jesus Brad Pitt!

It's not science based. It's realistic bent of speculative fiction. It's no more factual than National Treasure is a historic accuracy.

So ready for the zombies everywhere thing to be done. It was fun and cool for a little while but it's just so insanely over saturating everything now.


So you are saying...the zombies just keep coming...relentlessly...despite your best efforts and throwing everything you have at it, they just. keep. coming. I feel like there must be some sort of outlet, some method to describe that feeling of helplessness in the face of daunting odds and an unstoppable hungry horde. It is like all these zombie movies/books/shows/commercials/blogs/websites are some sort of semi-alive/semi-dead amalgamation of the essence of our humanity.

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..

Everybody involved in the decision to turn this book into a single "blockbuster" movie rather than a quality mini-series in the style of Band of Brothers should be beaten soundly about the head and shoulders with bamboo canes until they promise to never, ever, ever do anything so stupid again.

AntonChigger: We are simply talking napalm, which sticks to everything and burns hot.


We shoot the dead, the young, the lame,
We do our best not to maim,
Because the kills don't count the same,
Napalm sticks to zeds.

Flying low 'cross the cities,
Pilots doing what they please,
Dropping frags on refugees,
Napalm sticks to zeds.

See those walkers over there,
Watch me get them with a pair,
Blood and guts just everywhere,
Napalm sticks to zeds.

I've only seen it happen twice,
But both times it was mighty nice,
Shooting zeds stuck in the ice,
Napalm sticks to zeds.

Napalm, son, is lots of fun,
Dropped in a bomb or shot from a gun,
It gets the walkers on the run,
Napalm sticks to zeds.

Drop some napalm on a farm,
It won't do them any harm,
Just burn off their legs and arms,
Napalm sticks to zeds.

CIA with guns for hire,
Zombies running from a fire,
Napalm makes the fire go higher,
Napalm sticks to zeds.

I've been told it's not so neat,
To catch zeds burning in the street,
But burning flesh, it smells to sweet,
Napalm sticks to zeds.

Children sucking on a mother's tit,
Wounded walkers in a pit,
Dow Chemical doesn't give a shiat,
Napalm sticks to zeds.

Bombadiers don't care a bit,
Just as long as the pieces fit,
When you stuff the bodies in a pit,
Napalm sticks to zeds.

Eighteen ghouls in a No Fire Zone,
"Lunch" under arms and going home,
Last in line goes home alone,
Napalm sticks to zeds.

Zack in a sampan, sitting in the stern,
They don't know their boats will burn,
Those damn saifu will never learn,
Napalm sticks to zeds.

Cobras flying in the sun,
Killing walkers is lots of fun,
Get one pregnant and it's two for one,
Napalm sticks to zeds.

Shoot the walkers where they sit,
Take some pictures as you split,
All your life you'll remember it,
Napalm sticks to zeds.

Ghouls are all hard core,
LOBOS never are a bore,
Throw those PSYOPS out the door,
Napalm sticks to zeds.

Gather zeds as you fly over town,
By throwing flesh on the ground,
Then grease 'em when they gather 'round,
Napalm sticks to zeds.

I like fast zombies. I have been a fan of them ever since i saw them in the remake of dawn of the dead, simply cause they are effin terrifying.

That being said I don't know if i am a fan of giant fluid blob of zombie...

mooseyfate: Coelacanth: I've been calling this thing "Starship Zombies" for awhile now. But I had no idea how close I was to the truth.

At least I get to hear the lamentations of the gun porn guys when they show the Battle of Yonkers.

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"!"

"Ugh...yes, sir..."


"Did you know that pound for pound, the zombie is the deadliest killer in the undead kingdom?"

"OK, some giant zombies, then, right, sir?"

Zombie DJ: InmanRoshi: Zombie DJ: InmanRoshi: After this, can we officially expire the Zombies shiat? Holy fark, it's officially played the fark out.

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.....

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? Add earthquakes, amirite?" Yes, earthquakes would be played the fark out.

You should......get away from media for a while and let the rest of us enjoy our earthquakes then.


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.

fastfxr: mooseyfate: fastfxr: Zombies have to move slow and lethargic?
-Y'all are idiots.

Should be a mini-series?
-Idiots as well.


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

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.

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.


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!

Damn, I knew it wasn't going to be a proper version of the book, but I wasn't prepared for this. I have said this before, but were I the Supreme Ruler of Earth, I would have had the filmmakers sit down and watch The Man From Earth. It's basically one guy telling a story to a small group of other people, and takes place almost entirely in a single room, but it's such a compelling story and it's told so well that you don't farking notice that they never showed you any of the stuff he talks about, you just see it in your minds eye. After the credits roll, I point to the screen and say "See that? Make it like that, but with zombies. The book is your storyboard, it gives you set descriptions and everything, so use it." It could either be done with interviews going to flashbacks with voiceovers from the interviewees, or they could do it hardcore mode and do straight interviews, and you never see a zombie in the film that isn't mostly frozen in ice (the Jesika Hendricks segment).
