Fast & Furious 6
The Hangover Part III
It starts bold and finishes timid and tepid, unable to do justice to its conceit.
| Original Score: 6/10
...an erratic yet passable entry in the teen-romance genre.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
A wildly imaginative redressing of 'Romeo and Juliet' in stylish zombie clothing.
| Original Score: B+
Don't think too hard, just enjoy a zombie movie with a twist to go with its 'Walking Dead' charm.
| Original Score: B
Not too horrific, despite a few early attacks and munchings, this is worth it for the music, the genre joking, Palmer's cool performance and Hoult's committed turn as 'R', easily the sweetest zombie in all cinema.
| Original Score: 3/5
A fun mashing of genres that joins the spate of recent films that recasts traditional movie ghouls as misunderstood outsiders. Seems that even the Undead need love.
To call this an unlikely love story is an understatement, but it is precisely this level of weirdness that makes the romance between R and Julia so surprisingly touching.
| Original Score: 4.5/5
With more romantic mushiness than the brain-chomping kind.
My zombie boyfriend.
If you love the un-dead humour of Zombieland and Shaun of the Dead, but want an Edward Scissorhands-meets-Romeo and Juliet style romance on the side - then this is the film for you.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
Sometimes feels like the script doesn't quite know where it's going but has plenty of fun getting there.
...the film's horror element is hamstrung by its bloodless rating, so the filmmakers often focus on the immaculate cheekbones of their leads...
While Warm Bodies is more slanted towards comedy and romance rather than horror, it remains true to the zombie genre while pushing it in an unexpected direction.
| Original Score: 4/5
It's your classic tale of 'boy meets girl, boy tries not to eat girl'.
An occasionally funny romantic zombie comedy (or rom-zom-com) that offers a fresh twist on Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet.
Not a particularly substantial film, but a charming, lovable one.
Takes the notion of zombie meets girl an turns it into something that's so crazy that it works
A funky, fresh tale of adolescent self-doubt and blossoming love funneled through the prism of post-apocalyptic zombiedom, Warm Bodies conjures a lovely, commingled tone of wistfulness and witticism.
| Original Score: A-
I somehow think this "sensitive parable" took a little too much from Scott Pilgrim.
The movie doesn't stand out much in memory - nothing in it really pops - but it's enjoyable while it lasts.
