    Well, as I said in the other thread...

    Saw Land of the Dead tonight and it was fuckin' great! My only complaint at all was that it was too short - the end really came up fast, and I was all 'noooo, don't stop now!' The acting was mostly believable by all the cast, and the gore, while not overly abundant, was very satisfying. Much munchings and crunchings, and head blasts and such make Hyde a happy zombie-boy, and Land of the Dead delivers.

    And about the tuba... dudes, it was one quick scene just after the credit sequence, and it's not outlandish at all considering the direction the movie takes. I for one think it works pretty well actually.

    I loved it. It was everything I wanted it to be. It's still #4 out of the 4 to me (Day is my favorite) but it's good.

    Actual plot, actualy characters, everything the Dawn remake lacked.

    I want to go see this so bad on opening night, but am on vacation and completely out-voted. :cry: I won't get to go until July 9th or 10th, so it's up to all ya'll to keep it in theaters until then.
    If this has a 2 week run and I miss it someone's gonna die! :fire:

    Saw it at a sneak peek last night. I was disapointed, even though I probaly expected too much. I liked the story but thought they could of done so much more with it. I will see it again but as of now its easily #4 in the series.

    I saw it at a screening last night and thought it was good - not great, but good. About 30 minutes into the movie, I leaned over to my buddy and gave him the thumb's down sign and he agreed. But I have to say it got a lot better after that. The story is pretty weak, the acting is hit and miss, and some of the dialogue seems forced. But if you go in with your expectations in check, you should get a big kick out of it for the zombie scenes alone. It's nowhere near the level of Night, Dawn, or Day but it is still an entertaining way to spend 2 hours. Nobody does zombie movies like George Romero period. But there was just too much stupid shit that had me shaking my head and in my opinion brought the movie down from classic level. Overall, I would rank it right below the Dawn remake (blasphemy, I know).

    30% on RT. I love the Dead Films, but I think this will be at the bottom, #4. Tuba playing, first 30 mins is a thumbs down, smart zombie.

    With my low expectations, hopefully I'll enjoy it.
