Monday Movie Review

Warm Bodies
I really, really enjoyed this one. To be honest, it's been a while since I've had as much fun in a theater as I did watching this. And while the boy won't admit it, I think he liked it too.

It took me a while to realize it, I was maybe halfway through when it hit, but this is basically a reinterpretation of Romeo and Juliet. The characters names are Julie and R, but even that knowing their names, it still took one pivotal scene to make me realize it. (I'll let you guess which one that is.)

I thought this one had the potential to be cheesy, but it definitely lived up to, if not exceeded my expectations. Now I guess I just need to read the book, and hopefully I'll enjoy it just as much.

  1. I loved the movie and still think the book was better... a big part of what made the book amazing to me was that R was thinking really beautiful thoughts but couldn't express them, and to get that across in the movie there would have had to have been a lot more voiceovers. There's also more to the two little-kid zombies than was explained in the movie, and the book is funnier. I think you will like it!
