Stupid People Doing Stupid Things

a.k.a. "28 Weeks Later"

If stupid was a train, the only stop would be in retard-ville, where this movie would get on and never leave.

Similar to the first one, the basic plot is that someone does something stupid, someone gets infected and fucks with everyone else, the world goes to SHIT, and the military spends the rest of the movie with their thumbs up their asses, with one wannabe byronic hero boasting some crap about justice and life... then shed a few tears, add a shocker right before the ending, and voila: you have just created the world's greatest zombie movie. Truth is, despite the overwhelming lack of sense portrayed in the characters (they should have known what children actors would have done to the movie), it was an AWESOME show. As ususal, there were tons of jumpy moments, chaotic scenes in the dark, music that was climactic and repedative, cinematography that was cinna-licious, and the cast wasn't bad to look at either. But seriously though, it was a very well done movie which left me wanting more by it's new "Dawn of the Dead" style ending (hooray, we're all fucked!). And while i haven't had any yet, i'm sure some sweaty screaming nightmares are in my future (The first one had me imagining infected crashing through my bedroom window for a month!)

I'll post more later about this movie, when it's not 7 am and i'm tired, but i leave you with a few things to ponder:

Was the dad like really smart after he turned, cause he needed his keycard to get around the building, so did he use it when he was infected?

Wasn't the daughter wearing waaaaay too much eyeliner?

Don't you think the mom just got REAMED in this movie? Poor thing, she never got a break.

Anyone want to go running? I think we need to start training...

"Was the dad like really smart after he turned, cause he needed his keycard to get around the building, so did he use it when he was infected?"

-The keycard might have permanently activated an open door, or someone could have gone int the door to check out what the noise was about. I'm going to go with the second one since, as you have identified, stupidity abounds in this kind of movie.

"Wasn't the daughter wearing waaaaay too much eyeliner?"

-She's young, so I'd say that's realistic portrayal of how kids put on makeup.

"Don't you think the mom just got REAMED in this movie? Poor thing, she never got a break."

-Yeah, if anybody suffered the most, it would have to be her.

"Anyone want to go running? I think we need to start training..."

-I don't know how to run, actually. That, and my lungs don't hold out very long if I try. I agree that it'd be a good thing to train, but my cardio is drums ;) -- However, this activity can be translated to a non-instrumental workout: sit up straight, flail your appendages, twist and bend your torso. Preferably hold something in each hand akin to a stick.
