Day of the Dead (2008) (V)

Bloody Shame..., 20 June 2008
1/10

This movie should not be made at all... despite of box office failure Romero original was great movie.. the opening scene with dead in silent town.. 3 amazing kills... I have never feel such surreal in my whole life after watching day of dead (85) but this remake is S!@#T See dead bodies running make no sense.. it was kool in Dawn of Dead Remake because that director was amazing guy.. he build strong momentum in those zombie chase sequences...

Steve Miner somehow was busy in trying more and more than making one solid movie... It was more like Resident Evil original game movie than day of the dead... but still the opening in Resident Evil game is much much better than this movie...

Why Ving rhame accepted Rhodes..???

Overrated .. Flop, 20 June 2008
2/10

Since last year after reading all positive reviews and much Hype of this project, I was desperate to watch the movie but was not available because of flop Aussie production in Pakistan.. Luckily I got a chance to travel to Australia and last night I bought the DVD and MANNN I am disappointed.. The movie is too slow to start with, waste of time in name of character development and amazingly low body count.. plus no memorable kill (most are offscreen, even 1 on screen which is again not worthy)...

Fun part is that many extra were actually alive while main actors were targeted by smart creature...

In the end director of shocker Wolfcreek somehow wanted to make a character driven, medium scare and happy "Commercial" movie to recover 25Million investment but Failed badly because of exact intention...

with such a great landscape, good cast and nice croc... there was a true potential of good movie here which was missed...

I don't know why there is buzz around for this movie.. for me I wasted my money and time in DVD better just ignore it and watch something else..

BTW there is no comparison of JAWS with this movie... Even Black Water (From Australia too)is better movie than Rogue....

Contains some of most memorable Gory Deaths, 26 March 2008
8/10

I am very Peaceful person but I love Romero's work. His Living Dead Series is one of my favorite movies tough I am not a huge Zombie movie Fan but Romero Zombie movies are treat to watch They are under-rated because of the Genre stamp on them otherwise the Social Commentary and Survival instinct made them very Intelligent movies of lot Day of the dead is probably the weakest of Romero series but in term of looks, Zombies and Gore its the best movie. The Opening sequence with Town overrun by Zombies is most horrific cinematic experience, alas we don't make these types of movies now a days The movie is shadowed by endless boring dialogs by some very average actors but the story was cool, Idea was not bad and execution was on the top. I hated the dialog delivery of actors but never forwarded the movie in more than 100 screenings so far But fact is that this is the best movie in term of some unusual violence and extreme Gore. I have seen some very bad and gory movies even the whole Cannibal series but the gore in this movie, the way three soldiers died in the end, one head literally got taken away, others skull was open from Eye area and Caption Rhodes split apart than eaten away,... they were the most horrific gory scenes to me

In short, you love Romero, you will enjoy the movie, You want to see some gr8 Zombies, See this masterpiece... for Gore hounds its must but people with Shakespearian acting etc ... don't watch this movie....

Campy, Cheesy and HELL of Fun but all Purposely should be Deliberately, 14 May 2007
8/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

First of All I'm huge MOVIE FANS means got 1600+ DVDs/VHS and of all Genre. One of the biggest Horror Fan and Zombie / Masked Killer type of Films are in my beloved league... (NOTLD, TCM my all time favorite) Well this is my own country's first ever effort in gore / splatter kind of genre and naturally since I first heard of this movie, I was Mad like hell to watch it... and my dearest wish come true last night in LUMS Premiere of this movie I must say It was Fun experience, means what we were promised in the trailer in lots of different discussions in many site ( I Read almost all Zibahkahan related Blogs) is all what we get. The movie as per director himself is not Bollywood piece of commercialism, nor its Iranian directors piece of artwork.. I was campy fun ride and was beautifully done... BUT .. If you just think on my line in summary that its its all purposely and it should be deliberately... I mean this is good effort we appreciate but according to me in these type of films usually cheesy and campy stuffs are deliberately placed.. and its viewer who spot them and than CULT FOLLOWING comes.. but in the movie I got a feeling that Placement of such material was forced and there was clear purpose behind them to get noticed.. for example... Deewana Character.. first we got DVD Cover than 1 min clip of Zinda Lash.. some shots of that actor as Dracula... than during Tea Stall scene O.J even asked him aren't you the same guy who play Dracula..... seee....instead of let the audience guess it or let the reviewer write it in trivia section.. director just make it clear to everyone what he is intending to do... I hope you get what I was trying to say....

but thats nothing what you will see in this 90 Min's films is very entertaining stuff... my only disappointment was they start of with so much footage of protest, contaminated water, than zombie attack.. but somehow left the plot to ignorance.. mean I know movie switched to Slasher /Masked Killer/ Psycho genre but it will be kool if its like Team of teens stuck in middle of nowhere with family of psycho and surrounded by Zombie... even O.J as zombie VS Burqa MAN (realllly ;-0) kind of scene can be different , funny or even hilarious (thats campy) Also For God sake.. I hate Uwe Boll for this .. don't use same footage repeatedly again and again.. we spotted spider in web, hanging crows, cock /hen leg, dolls pieces , full moon all were perfectly visible in first spot.... (sooryy but its teasing....but its First effort to note this for next time...) On bright side.. gr8 movie score, gore, some very kool moments, kool depiction, shocking and overall good movie...

I tried to disclose very few spoilers , will not discuss about standard of movie making etc.. as its Weldon.. keeping in mind first ever effort in Pakistan and to begin this is actually very good movie.. I know its easy to criticize and hard to actually make things .. thats why I will appreciate everyone involve in making this film.. keeping in mind the fantastic response its getting everywhere its screened .. great job everyone .. but always make sure.. there is always room for improvement.. hopefully things will improve with other ventures....

Well the BEST Movie SEEN after LOTR series, 15 January 2007
10/10

I don't know Spanish and was seriously handicapped by the Subtitles .. but still this movie caught my attention, concentration and emotions in a BIG WAY..

One of the rarest piece of art and strongest demonstration of craftsmanship this movie standout not just the merits of direction, story, visuals and but also from the strongest performances...

By looks its a Fairy tales but very very real, the fantasy is violent but not more than what is portrait in the real world.. from the first frame you somehow get involved in the movie and start looking the picture from either 1st person perspective that is the young girl or as a third person perspective the Vidal's act...

I cant see any weakness in this movie and if there is any I was too busy admiring it thats why i missed it...

before watching this movie i heard it got 26 Min's standing ovation at Sundance.. and I was like HOW THE HeLL it can happen.. but after watching this movie with Some tears in Eyes i must Say it deserves even bigger...

no need to discuss anything about this one .. just watch it yourself this one is HELL of a treat to watch...

Fantastic JOB... Thanks you Mr. Stallone, 11 January 2007
10/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

WoW... Just saw this movie and it was Awesome...

I've only seen Rocky series till Rocky-3. and liked the first part very much as despite of fact the lead character becomes American Hero but his rise and enthusiasm is what we people in third world country sees a lot..

It was not about some DREAM come true it was all about RESPECT and thats what excellent in it.. see He was a fighter with some abilities and was alone so his life was passing-by, I didn't see any ambition in the first movie for Rocky to become World Champion all I see that he wanted to Get Respect , get people seeing his point of views etc etc Now just leave what happen after wards in this film.. the Old Rocky is again the same Man,.. Glory days over .. wife died of cancer.. Son grown up and Life of his own... pretty much just going through with life .. than again the RESPECT thing just comes up and he got determined to go to ring in his late 50's and face new heavy weight champion...

The movie is great struggle for RESPECT of elderly hero and is motivating enough to neglect that line "Come-one 60 year old in SHORTS taking over young champ..." recommended to everyone who wanted to Prove themselves After a long time I've seen Stallone doing some real acting... and no nomination in golden globe , Oscar for acting, writing or direction is surprise for me as this movie is much much greater than Borat.. is in line with Departed and The Queen... Come-one guys you gave Capote Oscar last year.. didn't this movie is better than that one.. i term of forbidden choices and struggle etc etc etc

from many things I learned from this and earlier movies one line to sum-up "If you want something badly just release your inner demon and get it....there's nothing impossible.."

Occasional Funny.. Potentially Good but misfires a little, 11 January 2007
8/10

I must say I am not a Big Fan of Will but his movies are watchable and are funny like ELF, Anchorman, Old School, Kicking and Screeming etc I think Teladega Nights is one of better Will Ferral movies and if executed properly it can be a great movie... It misfires a big time means movie start off well, some funny introduction, uneasy but nice way to make Ricky Bobby a star.. some of funniest references to Jesus and references to Tom Cruise and Scientology (tough they didn't mention Scientology ...) but after that they bad patch then recovery than Win in end is all not so satisfactory..

I watched this movie in DVD at home and was completely in front of TV screen in beginning but just after middle and near ending I was almost ready to skip some scenes but somehow manage to wait for big race in end which clearly disappoints...

still it earned 8/10 because of some really funny lines that will make you laugh whenever you remember them...

Special Note for ALi G One Thing tough Borat is big hit but Ali G is ......le , just see him in this movie , If you are weird out like me in Naked fight in Borat than watch was his role and one big pathetic scene in end that ruined whole movie spark....
