Zombie Cliche Lookout: Checking Things Out
Before rushing into danger, it’s generally a good idea to get a rough idea of what, exactly, that danger is all about. And what’s the best way to assess the danger? By sneaking around and peaking around corners and into windows, of course. Obviously, this trope isn’t tied specifically to zombie movies, but it certainly won’t seem out of place in one either.
This one always makes me think of Animal House, which always makes me smile.
About this Episode:
The bad thing about not having pocket or belts is that the minifigures have to hold whatever they’re carrying around. I usually have them hold things down by their waist to suggest that their gun is in a holster, or that their knife is attached to their belt. The problem crops up when you need them to use both of their hands to gesture, or something like that. It generally looks weird and threatening when people do that with a knife, as in Clark’s case here.
After more back and forth with my hosting company, I believe I may have finally figured out the issue with commenting and posting in the forum. I’m not going to bet my life on it or anything, but I’m seeing some very positive evidence in CPU usage about now. Please let me know if you have any issues.
Discussion Question: Zombieland TV
So did everyone watch the Zombieland TV show from Amazon? If not, check it out. It’s free. At any rate, what did everyone think of the show? I have to imagine that recasting all the characters was a big issue for a lot of people. I wouldn’t have minded it so much, had the original actors not been so strong in the roles. Also, the new Tallahassee is like a sitcom husband, which is just awful.
I did really enjoy the show’s cold open though. I was thinking it would be about completely different characters. Probably it should have.
