4/6/2011 Zeds and Dread

319th day...

Today, i reluctantly tapped back into my own personal library and pulled out one of the old dusty "god i wish i never have to see this one again" movies. "Rise of the Undead" is one of those films that you swear it was just a class project. it has some typical archetypes/characters that more or less follow how you think they're going to act. there are some "funny because it's bad" moments for sure, and the whole thing is shot is what appears to be an indoor storage facility.

now, i'm not going to entirely throw this one under the bus, frankly because they had enough gumption to actually put this thing out on dvd, and it does have more memorable lines than the remake of "day of the dead" i saw a few days ago. it's an interesting premise and location. again, you have to know that by looking at the case and the first few minutes of the movie that this movie is not going to be a game changer. it's not going to register on the 25 best zombie flicks ever made.

overall, if by some chance, you happen to find a moment that you can view it someway, without a huge investment, take a look at it and have a laugh here or there, then pretend it doesn't exist and put it a more viewable movie.

now, i have some catching up to do. one of my friends is coming into town for a weekend of gaming and i need to get ready and re-prepared for my "Dread" game scheduled for Sunday. time to go wake up "Pandora" from her slumber in my linen closet.
