Hoping to see World War Z this weekend. Loved the book, and while I know that it's not the same story, I still think it'll be fun.

So, I finally saw Man of Steel. I'd have to say the movie was more fun to make fun of than to watch.

^^I loved the movie, but suddenly I'm wondering what the movie would've been like had they re-cast Amy Adams with a man and called the character Louis Lane.

I'd watch that, but instead just keep her the same and take out Superman. Like my idea for Terminator Without Terminator.

Finally saw World War Z. I really enjoyed it.

I loved the book, and knew it would be different, but accepted it because I felt the style of the book (an oral re-telling of past events, from dozens of POVs) couldn't be adapted well into a movie. Instead, you could see elements from the various short stories in the new plot, which I really enjoyed.

I also liked the Fast Zombies in it. I know a lot of people were bothered by it, but it made the movie so much more tense.

So yes. World War Z. See it.

That's the only positive review of WWZ I've seen. You seem to have a pretty accepting viewpoint of most movies, which is not a bad thing. It's a very good thing, in fact, to be able to see the up side of things.

A lot of the negs were from book comparisons, which is to be expected. It's probably much more favorable to those who haven't read the book, or can mentally separate the two.

Actually I've gotten a lot of positive feedback on it. From what I hear as long as you can separate the book from the film (they're unrelated outside title) then you can enjoy it. I plan on seeing it when it hits the cheap theatre because there are just other things I want to see but its on my list.

I enjoy movies Smile Even bad movies tend to have their redeeming qualities.

I knew for a fact that the book would be better. I love the book, and the Zombie Survival Guide. But I also knew that oral histories and numerous short stories that barely (if at all) interconnect would not make for a good movie.

When watching the movie, I remembered a lot of the short stories, and you could see them inspire details in the film, such as:

The Fast Zombies are different than the book's Romero Zombies, but their speed really created a sense of panic. Slow, lumbering zombies are scary, but in a completely different way that would not have worked in this story.

So even if the story was different, and the zombies were different, the movie remained enjoyable and even good. Maybe it just needed a different name.

Last night, the missus and I went to see "Percy Jackson: The Sea of Monsters." I had a lot of fun with it. The pacing was a bit off, and they diverge from the books in some rather significant ways (which bothered my wife, who read all the books, whereas I just read the first one so far), but I thought the story they told was fun and engaging.

I particularly liked what they did with Clarisse. Also, they started including more elements from the book mythos (the Mist, Talia's tree, Dionysus, etc.) They re-cast Chiron (apparently they couldn't get Pierce Brosnan again, but Anthony Stewart Head was really good). The humor was quite good too, with a really funny Christian joke, and an absolutely amazing Firefly reference by Nathan Fillion (which like 6 people laughed at in the theatre).

So yes. If you like the first movie, see the second one. If you loved the book, be prepared for major differences.
