It's a travest-Z
Shadowknight: FTFA:The actor asked him to watch an edit, and told him, "The thing we really need right now is someone who is not burdened by all the history that this thing is inheriting, who can see what we've got and tell us how to get to where we need to get."Ok, I'll be the first come out and say it:THEN WHY BOTHER WITH BUYING THE BOOK RIGHTS IF YOU'RE NOT GOING TO USE THE BOOK'S STORY?Also, HBO miniseries ect...
duffblue: WWZ was a mildly interesting book, but it is so poorly written that I'm not surprised about the way the movie is turning out. It's like max Brooks learned everything about weapons from call of duty.
IamAwake: Raharu: See the walking dead follows a very similar story to the comics, but is still different enough from the comics to keep me interested and watching.Tell that to the Firefly people who felt betrayed by Serenity...
moonage daydream: The guy who told me to read WWZ some years back apparently wasn't aware of what "fiction" means. Yes, he tried convincing me this all happened and the ever-ominous THEY didn't want us to know.
peterthx: Lindelof CO-CREATED LOST. He wrote the show's bible.
Phinn: trappedspirit: medieval: Ishtar was not a bad movie.It got bad reviews, and it wasn't the greatest movie I've ever seen, but it was hardly a bad movie.It's the only movie I have ever walked out onI guess you never saw Battlefield Earth.Or Escape from L.A.
lemurs: Milo Minderbinder: I refuse to spend money on anything that Lindelof touches. He's a hack that couldn't write a cat food commercial.Seems appropriate:[i.imgur.com image 640x624]
LineNoise: You mean a book that reads like a highschool freshman creative writing paper doesn't translate well to the big screen? Color me shocked.
Securitywyrm: Nuclear Monk: I think I'll wait and watch the poorly/hastily made knock-off with a very similar title that is sure to pop up at Redbox a few weeks before WWZ is released.The Asylum will surely release their own zombie movie around the time this comes out... and I'll be honest. Their last zombie movie was... one of the best zombie movies I've ever seen. Sure it had low production values, but the story was good, the characters were good, and most of all... at no point in the movie did someone do something absolutely retarded for the sake of plot progression."Hello new people. Everyone strip at gunpoint, we're doing a bite check before we welcome you into the group.""As a new member of the group, please cut off that long hair, ditch the heels, and we're going to a sporting goods store to get you some better clothes and equipment."ETC.
stuhayes2010: I loved the book. It was a fun read. I don't hold much hope for the movie, but according to Wiki: Aint it Cool News reviewed the script in March 2008, and said "This isn't just a good adaptation of a difficult book... it's a genre-defining piece of work that could well see us all arguing about whether or not a zombie movie qualifies as Best Picture.So, maybe there's hope.
Raharu: elvisaintdead: DjangoStonereaver: I stopped reading when I saw Damon Lindelolf's name.This will be a failure of epic proportions.Bingo.Come on now, you must admit his previous works such as the storyline of "Lost" are storytelling masterpie......HahahahahahahahahahahaOk I couldn't finish that sentence.
Nonrepeating Rotating Binary: Total Movie Fail.
ecmoRandomNumbers: They shot this thing without knowing how the bad the ending was going to be? Did they just wake up every morning and do improv? The script supervisor probably committed hara-kiri with a clapperboard.
