    Well, DIARY OF THE DEAD is out now to mixed blessings. That seems to always be the case with Romero's DEAD films though, so like with Argento, look past the gold and tell me which of his films has the most grime.

    Land. They need to keep Hopper out of horror. I realized this back when Texas 2 came out.

    Flawed as Land of the Dead was, I loved it compared to Diary of the Dead. :eek1:

    Diary had pretentious narration, completely unlikeable characters, embarrassing f/x, and a foul air of predictability. I expected more from Romero.

    Land for me. Parts of it feel like a SCI-FI channel original movie and I hate Big Daddy.

    Land of the Dead suffered from a big-budget feel with low budget CGI. It was more Action movie than Horror, and although its reach was impressive, it never fully grasped anything.

    Diary of the Dead is the weakest.

    Have yet to see Diary, having heard so little good about it, what little of that being from people saying "but not as good as Land". And given Land is currently far and away my least favorite of the series (and the only one I don't like - and I've forced myself to rewatch the piece of crap not once but *twice* trying to see why others insist this is a good film), that is not high praise.

    Add in that many of the Diary of the Dead fans seem to loathe Day of the Dead (brilliant film, IMO), and I'm just not looking forward to the inevitable day my curiosity and still burning Romero worship brings me to watch it.

    Until that day, I can't decide on this poll, because I don't have "all the facts".

    I saw DIARY in the theater and thought in was a solid experiment,but it still is my least favorite.

    Land of the Dead. It's a fun flick, but because it's big-budget but is lacking the substance and commentary the other Dead films have.

    Eh, even after watching Diary, which has the dumbest most repetitive commentary ever, btw, I had do go with Land, because Land just didn't try hard at all.

    Diary had moments of excellence, followed by long stretches of lameness. I'll take that over "nothing" any day.

    Five people said that either Night or Dawn was their least favorite. Really? I mean, really?

    Diary Of The Dead. I love the guy, but Diary may be his worst film yet.

    I guess I should have read the question closer. I assumed it said favorite so I voted for Dawn. Disregard that vote. My bad.

    For me, it's easy. The first four films all have some merit (to varying degrees). Diary, simply, does not.
