So, a word to those whose pants are constantly being rocked off by George Romero and were huge fans of 2004's Dawn of the Dead, think twice before seeing the 2008 version of Day of the Dead. Sooooo disappointing. I haven't even seen the 1978 version of Dawn of the Dead and I'm sure it's even better, most originals are, but I can't help being completely in love with the newer version. So campy. So funny. So gross. So absolutely everything I love about zombie flicks. Day of the Dead, however, kiiind of a huge let down. From what I gather it sort of followed the formula of the original, but the dialogue was awful and I didn't find myself giving a shit about any of the characters. Those are really the two deal breakers for me with movies. Maybe I just love Dawn too much, maybe I'm just too picky, maybe I need to just figure out what the hell I want, I dunno. Whatever! I need some good vino to nurse my disappointment.
This is not helping.
