Lists by Slaterson420
I tried to be objective as possible, but my biases certainly pop up here and there. This list doesn't include war movies, westerns, Star Wars, Lord of the Rings or superheroes (with one exception).
Some movies I consider my favorite because they inspire me as an aspiring filmmaker, some because I've learned much about film-making through watching them, some because they touch me emotionally, some because I agree with the message, and some just because.
No shorts or direct-to-video stuff
Yeah some of these say 2013 next to their title, but I saw them in theaters in 2014, so.....
This list includes traditional voodoo zombies, and movies that have the bite-and-become-one-of-them Romero-esq formula. No Deadites. Sorry Evil Dead. Also, I thoroughly enjoy the Night of the Comet and the Cabin in the Woods, but I don't find those films to be zombie heavy enough to really consider those to be zombie films. They're like other types of films, with a couple zombies in them.Like how Heavy Metal has that one segment with the plane.
And before you ask, ZOMBIELAND SUCKS! And I wouldn't go so far as to call World War Z awful, but it's definitely bland.
Counting television shows and short series. For short series, I pick one definitive short as a representation for the whole series, and put the name of the series in the description.
No internet series.
The documentary Jodorowsky's Dune has gotten me thinking about movies that could have been but never were. Whether it be a film that just never got made, lost films, films with lost footage, a film that was meant to be by another director, a sequel that never came around or whatever. Each entry in the list is accompanied by a film that makes sense in association. Some of these are movies I really wish existed. Some of these are probably better left the way they are, but would make for an interesting what if?
No superhero movies and no Star Wars. Superhero movies get their own list, and Star Wars goes on the fantasy list.
No superhero movies. They'll get their own list
Everything I've seen with him in it excluding cameo appearances.
In order in which they occur to me in my head
I really should write review to all these movies...
Obviously based only on films I've seen.
I tried to put Joaquin Phoenix as Theodore Twombly from Her at #2, but IMDB wouldn't find his name.
