Osama bin Laden: The Zombie. Seriously.
NOW CAN THE ZOMBIE THING FINALLY DIE?
I apologize -- and I assume this wasn't your intent -- but when I read the headline my brain went into Foghorn Leghorn mode. "Zombie! Die! I made a funny, boy, dontcha get it? Got a hole in his glove, I keep pitchin' em, he keeps missin' em..."
Anyway, fuck this thing right in its backward 'Z'.
In response to the thread title, not soon enough. I'm so fucking sick of Zombie this and Vampire that. Please, just let the monsters disappear for a while so that I don't completely want to hate them forever. please?>
It's (probably) a shitty, stupid movie.
That said, one crappy movie in a genre/sub-genre doesn't mean the entire thing is worthless. In order to get a Zombieland or a Shadow of the Vampire (or even a Godfather) you've gotta endure a lot of crappy stuff before and after, in most cases. Don't throw out the baby with the bathwater.
Yeah, the comic is terrible. I still need to catch up on the show, but it's so far behind on my list of priorities that I'll give it a go some night when I'm hammered and wanting some zombie action because I don't want to watch Dawn of the Dead for the 356th time.
Best part about TWD is when zombies aren't onscreen, you can just fast forward.
