RANKING ROMERO

Posted in Directors, Zombies with tags , , , , , , , on October 21, 2010 by Kaiderman

My love of Zombies is no secret. So, with Halloween right around the corner, I thought we should take a look at the man behind the greatest Zombie movies of all time: George Romero. While “The Man”, a title he shares with his Doppelganger Stan Lee, has done some other great films, for our purposes here today we will focus on his groundbreaking Zombie films. Here’s the skinny on these 2 awesome trilogies:

6. SURVIVAL OF THE DEAD.

Survival or “…” is the only real disappointment in the series for several reasons. For one, it’s not really a Zombie movie. It’s more of a story of feuding families set in a world full of Zombies. It’s also the first film to use characters from another film in the series. I always liked the series because there was no continuity. Each was a seperate tale of people trying to survive in this effed up world Romero created. Not to mention, it was unnecessary to do as it had no impact on the story and the characters used were merely side characters that pop up briefly in… Continue reading

Okay, so, this is a movie blog but there is something coming to TV this fall that I couldn’t be more excited about:

Seriously, this might be bigger to me than the first time I saw a booby! Here’s a little back story on this from me… Continue reading

HAULING ASS OR DRAGGING FOOT: A ZOMBIE DISCUSSION

Posted in Film, Guest Bloggers, Movies, Zombies with tags , , , , , , on May 10, 2010 by Kaiderman

I don’t know about you but, personally, there’s 2 things in life I love: My family and Zombies!!!

I happen to be completely obsessed with the genre. With both the good submissions and the bad. Today, I want to address a conversation that has arisen, and grown more heated, in the Zombie loving community over the last 6 years… ever since Zach Snyder’s awesome remake of the much loved cult classic Dawn of the Dead. The question is this: Which Zombie is better… the Romero creeper? Or the Snyder sprinter? To help me out, Marc from Go, See, Talk ( a great blog, by the way) has come on to help me debate the issue.

HOW TO SURVIVE A ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE

I’m sorry, my friends, but it is once again necessary for me to use this platform as a means of performing a public service. If there’s one thing hobos with signs in Hollywood movies have taught me it’s that THE END IS NEAR! How will it come? Asteroids, solar flares, biological terrorism, global deterioration, an act of God, Kanye West… these are all probable. However, I think we can all agree that our most imminent threat is that the undead will return to life and begin to feast on the flesh of the living. A.K.A. ZOMBIES!!!

Before I continue, I think you should know what my qualifications on this subject are. First off, I’ve seen just about every Zombie movie ever made (I’ve seen Dawn of the Dead 30 times alone), I read The Walking Dead, I own a red plaid shirt (that one’s for the Fanboys), I’ve read all the Marvel Zombies books, including the Army of Darkness crossovers, I once saw Simon Pegg (star of Shaun of the Dead) from 30 feet away at a bar in L.A., I’ve played Resident Evil and Left 4 Dead Parts 1 & 2, and I once woke up next to a young lady that, I swear to this day, looked herself to be one of the undead. What a night that was! Oh, and I am currently working on my AA at a local community college. Go Eagles! Needless to say, my credentials are impecable. But I am not the first to bring light to these urgent matters. I am merely adding bricks and mortar to a foundation put in place by the likes of George A. Romero, Max Brooks, Danny Boyle and many others. Now that credit has been given, let’s set the stage.

A Zombie situation can break out at any point in time. There’s no way of pinpointing where you’ll be or what you’re situation will be like. For our intents and purposes here, let’s assume reports are flooding in that the towns and cities surrounding your’s are being overrun by the undead. The threat is imminent and it’s only a matter of time before it makes it’s way to you. With that established, I present you with tips on HOW TO SURVIVE A ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE. Continue reading
