Have you ever imagined a world with no hypothetical situations?

The true definition of a classic. NotLDís influence is unquestionable. Despite itís age and low budget itís still an affective horror film and itís not so much due to the zombies themselves but the atmosphere of impending doom Romero creates. The use of news broadcasts to inform the survivors that the world has ended as they know it makes the claustrophobic setting feel all the more hopeless, creepy and disturbing. One of my favorites.
Agreed - a true classic!

Do yourself a favor and pick up the Criterion Blu-ray which was restored by the Museum of Modern Art and The Film Foundation. After suffering for years as a public domain title the film has finally been done justice and never looked better.

The Snowman 3/10

Boy I donít know what happened with this one. Had all the makings of what looked like a good noir thriller on the surface. Concept was interesting enough. Cast is stellar with the likes of Michael Fassbender, JK Simmons and Rebecca Ferguson. Cinematography and atmosphere are excellent! All that said itís a complete misfire on the execution of the narrative. Probably a good story in there somewhere but ultimately what we get is one of those films that thinks itís way smarter than it actually is and ends up being more of a pretentious mess than anything.

I went to a general store. They wouldn't let me buy anything specifically.

Not terrible but I have to be a book snob on this one. If you have read the book none of the 4 or 5 attempts to convert this one into film really hold up very well.
I haven't read the books and I doubt I ever will since I can't imagine a world where I don't picture or hear David Suchet.

Which is what happened here. I felt the TV movie with him was far better than this... why did it need so much CG?

Sounds like I'll be in the love it camp and my girl will be in the hate it camp.
