Great choice...never seen it. Zombie movies/books give me the creeps. Too much gore.

Saw it, but didn't love it altho it was lots of fun. Still like The Walking Dead best when it comes to zombies.

Elise Fallson said...

If I wasn't such a chicken, I'd watch this movie and probably The Walking Dead too. But as it stands, I’m a big fat scaredy cat when it comes to all things zombie related.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

The book and the movie were vastly different.

I was so irritated with the movie lol; horror movies have started embracing the Mockumentary style and that's exactly how the book was written... But that's not at all how the movie was done; it was all about giving Brad Pitt a chance to showboat. It was an okay movie but I still prefer the book any day. The book was scarier.

I enjoyed that movie.

I've always wanted to see that movie, and not just because it stars Brad Pitt. I'm a huge Walking Dead fan and World War Z was intriguing to me. Thanks for the reminder. Maybe I'll rent it this weekend.
Congrats on finishing the A-Z. Thanks for being such a great ambassador!
All the best,

Good choice for Z. I liked the film, though I felt like something was lacking. Now that I've mostly forgotten the film I don't recall what I found to be the shortcomings, but still it was a decent film with an interesting concept.

Congratulations on making it through April especially with the co-hosting duties on your plate. Thank you!
