The Greatest Movie Ever Filmed.

They need to go back in time and take all the Oscars away from Gone With The Wind and maybe Casablanca and give them all to Zombieland.

Seriously, this is the only time I've ever blurted out "Oh my gawd, this is maybe the greatest movie ever!" out loud, in the theater. Twice.

That is all...

That's enough reccomendation for me.

OK, I'm in.

I couldn't have blurted anything. I was laughing so hard I missed enough dialogue I'm going to have to see it again.

This might just be enough to get me into the roach motel masquerading as a theatre here, sticky floor and all.

Reflectoscope, is that why they're always so dark?

I am a big, big fan, Tam, but the greatest movie ever filmed is "Saving Private Ryan". I am a pretty hard-nosed guy, but I can't watch that movie without tears.

Yeppers - the wife and I spent the entire movie laughing, gasping, and cheering along with everyone else in the theatre. It is possibly the only time I've been tolerant of people, including myself, making noise during a movie. I dubbed it "Feel-Good movie of the Year" the second the credits rolled, and led the applause.

I concur with your review.

"You gotta enjoy the little things!"

Sarcastic Bastard said...

Great movie! I saw it last night with a friend.

"I love rednecks!"

Borepatch said...

It's Snarktastic!

USCitizen said...

I gotta agree,

It was epic.

"Time to nut-up or shut-up!"

And that line about the coconut on Sno-Balls has actually passed over my lips. Scary.

"Just remember, Double Tap!"

I don't know how many new survival skills I picked up. I would have never thought of using a toilet tank lid or a banjo to dispatch zombies.

Fun flick.

Tam said...

The toilet tank lid is sometimes known as the "True Romance Technique".

i enjoyed this movie so much i'm tempted to drag our houseguests to the theater for another viewing - it doesn't hurt that everyone who will be staying with us this weekend plays Left 4 Dead rather heavily...

Tam, which two parts of the movie led you to blurt in the theater?

My Review

I'm telling ya, this movie has set the standard for movies about milquetoast boys becoming men. And I swear, the next time I see such a movie, if the pivotal moment, the scene where our spineless hero swallows his fear and grows a pair, DOES NOT involve a Zombie Clown getting his head smashed with a sledgehammer, well dammit, I'm gonna want my money back!

Lorimor said...

He did do a number on that Zombie Clown, didn't he? :)

Tam said...

The little squeak right before the CRUNCH! has supplanted "Rosebud..." as the defining moment of American cinematography.

Chance said...

I wish I disagreed about the nose, but I laughed out loud, and all three of my daughters (ages 8, 9, and 11) loved the movie too.

Excellent movie. Of course, since several scenes were filmed near where I live and/ or work, there was plent of "Ooooohh, I know where that is".

Well damn now I have to go see it....
