World War Z (the movie)

Recommended Posts

Just saw it last night.  Has anyone else here seen it?

 

Those fast-moving, fast-changing zombies are formidable!  Made me long for the slower moving ones on The Walking Dead.  At least one would have a chance against those.  My GF was laughing at me, pointing out that you don't get to pick your zombies.

 

I would hesitate to call it a great movie, but the action and intensity kept me on the edge of my seat.

It was good. It definitely wasn't "citizen Kane with zombies" as touted by max brooks. He got his payday and we got a gas paced zombie apocalypse movie.

 

Don't like fast zombies. Too unrealistic...HA!

Like any zombie is realistic? Lmao!

The ending was terrible, didn't fit the movie at all. But later I read about a ton of rewrites and new writers and it makes sense that it's totally disjointed.

 

Apparently the original script had an ending more similar to the book, although in russia (didn't the book end in canada?) but test audiences thought it was too grim. WTF do they know?

I got the movie on DVD. I Liked it for the most part. I read the book twice and it was nothing like the book. the third act didnt fit with the movie to me. Like others said they re shot the whole third act because the studio didnt like the original third act. The third act was gonna be totally different. The plane was suppose to land in Russia. Brad Pitts charecter Gerry was suppose to be drafted  into the Russian military with the old and week being shot as soon as the plane landed. They were gonna fast forward a year to see Gerry in a unit in Russia. He was gonna notice that the Zombies were slow in the winter and that was gonna be the anwser instead of the drug. If you look up Wprld War Z original ending you can read about it and see set pictures. One of him even holding a lobo.

  • 67 How important is it for you to have your next pistol be "Optics Ready?"

    1. 1. How important is it for you to have your next pistol be "Optics Ready?"


      • Very, (Do not want to pay for slide cutting, Looks cool, etc.)
      • Neutral (don't have a preference either way)
      • Not at all (not a feature I am looking for).
    2. 2. How much are you willing to pay for "Optics ready"? (i.e. gun is cut for an optic)


      • Up to $50
      • $50 to $100
      • $100 to $200
      • $250 or more
      • None. If it is not standard part of the gun, not willing to pay more for a model with it.
    3. 3. Why are you looking for Optics Ready?


      • Planning on adding optic.
      • Want to have the option just in case
      • n/a

    • So is this another option? https://franklinarmory.com/franklin-armory-xo-26-r2/  
    • I didnt hear what ever came of that...  but here is another  story.  https://www.tngunowners.com/forums/topic/108864-atf-prosecution-for-pistol-as-sbr/page/2/
    • What a country, huh?  Where else can you take something good, declare it as bad, redesign it to be better and not bad and then invent something to reverse the good turning the bad back into something good that was bad and profit off of it?  God bless America.  
    • @Sniper You know that your comparison of me to Gregory "Joey" Johnson is totally bogus and just your inflammatory way to personally attack me without really considering the point(s) I make and respond with an intelligent and articulate comment.  From my previous posts here, anyone can tell that I respect our flag and what it stands for.  I totally disagree with the association of our flag to other issues that Johnson made in his quote that you posted. In a similar fashion, it would be if I compared you to and cited one of the many hateful proclamations made by Richard B. Spencer, the wife-abuser, American neo-Nazi and white supremacist and president of the National Policy Institute, a white supremacist think tank.  That would be an extreme over reaction and not fair to you, even if you may agree with some of his stated positions.  I really do think we all need to throttle back down the hateful comments.  Yes, I have been guilty of writing some incendiary posts and will try not to make them personal towards other posters and focus on the point I am trying to make.  It is hard not to take criticism personally, but I think that I and all of us should at least try to rise above making negative comments towards each other, ranging from snarky barbs, to petty insults to slanderous and hateful accusations, since they clearly are not productive and just makes things worse on both sides. Also, we are all human with imperfections and histories of decisions and actions performed in the past that we now may regret or would have done differently.  So there really never will be any candidate devoid of flaws or previous bad choices.  Therefore, we all have to make do with whom we feel, moving forward, will have learned from their past successes and failures, and act and perform their duties in the best interest of our country.  We all are free to make that challenging choice and decision ourselves, which of course includes taking a chance and/or leap of faith. That is one of the reasons I am currently leaning towards supporting Joe Biden's candidacy.  Yes, he has had some creepy moments with people and I do wish he could just come out and sincerely apologize for how he treated Anita Hill at the Clarence Thomas hearings in the Senate.  Yet, from the current ridiculously large crop of Democrat candidates who have migrated to the far-left, (way too far in my opinion), I think that Biden is the most moderate and acceptable of the bunch. So is it really too much to ask for you and others to accept that there are many folks who really do not like Donald Trump and never have and are seeking a viable alternative candidate to vote for?  You may not agree with us, but that is the beauty of our Constitutional system, 1st Amendment rights, that allows us all to express our different opinions.  But ideally, to do so respectfully.  AVB-AMG
