Reedus recalled a story he has talked about before about how he moved to Los Angeles for a girl.
“I followed a girl that I had met in Japan to Los Angeles, like a moron,” he said.

Contracted (2013)

They could and should have called this The Zombie Abstinence Project.

We follow a girl (Najarra Townsend) as she comes down with a nasty virus that gets worse and worse (while she continues to serve food to people, who don’t balk!)… it’s an eminently watchable downward spiral.

But the script also injects pages of tedious young attractive lesbian female arguing: bokk-bokk-baqawk! BAQAWK! which you’ll need to fast-forward through, or check your email during.

I read that the ending was disappointing, which was exactly what I needed to read (because it’s not, it’s exactly what you want/expect! But let’s pretend it’s bad just for the sake of lowering expectations.)

Decent indie zombie movie, different than all the others.

Go’s Top 5 Films of 2013

Before Midnight - If you’re in an “international” marriage, or even a regular one, this film probably spoke to you in a way few others do.

The Wolverine - Beautiful fights in beautiful places. Natsukashii!

World War Z - A quality zombie production with some odd moodswings, that visits destruction upon multiple international locales instead of just the woods.

Man of Steel - That fight scene at the end was OFF THA HOOK

Gravity - Got my heart racing like few other films ever have. Real seat-of-your-pants-type stuff!

Honorable mentions: Star Trek Into Darkness, Man of Tai Chi, Side Effects, 21 & Over, Oblivion. And definitely NOT the hamfisted Elysium.

World War Z promo

So I’ve been to the movie theater TWICE in a WEEK! 

Man of Steel was awesome. It was CRAZY FIGHTING ALL OVER YO’ MOUTH! And that Cavizzill(?) guy, as E mentioned on the way out, looks a bit greasy in still photos but has tons of charm when he moves & speaks. My only complaint is that they didn’t make Krypton society quite fucked up enough (show some people UNHAPPY in their predetermened roles, duh!) and that one main baddy chick’s understanding of evolution was dismaying.

World War Z was meh. Enjoyed it on a technical level, but they forgot to make the zombies SCARY. I don’t like gore, but you need to have more than “uh oh I might get midair-tackled and done bit in me forearm” as a penalty for failure in whatever risky action you’re doing. Also did the filmmakers make [MILD SPOILER] the fall of Jerusalem the fault of the Palestinians!?! [/END MILD SPOILER]  Classy! And, liked the term “zekes.” But, I wish the film had some message or symbolism going on, like most decent zombie apocalypse movies try to do.  

I’ll probably hit the theater to see Pacific Rim and The Wolverine Takes Japan later this month, stay tuned?!

These are the zombies that Brooks believes in: the ghouls that come for you, that you can’t fight. The zombies are his mother’s cancer. They’re the fear that his wife and his son won’t be O.K., which makes him check his phone every few minutes when he’s apart from them. They’re the car that killed a friend of his in high school as they walked across the street, Brooks just a few steps ahead. The zombies are anything that comes into your life, without prejudice, and destroys it. The zombies are: Life’s not fair.

All-girl VK/power-metal groupthing ALDIOUS new albamu! DISTRICT ZERO! Vaguely zombie-esque titleage!
