You know those complex and somewhat entertaining movies (like "Doubt" or "Inception") that have those obnoxiously ambiguous endings for the sake of being up to everyone's either cynical or optimistic interpretation? Well..
And have to say that it's a pretty sweet movie. Yes, sweet as in touching, cute and even heart warming. Well hey, how often do we get romance movies about zombies, let alone good ones? It's a risky premise that even if it's pulled off will still leave a couple of things to be desired. But for me, I thought that all the components of a good romance movie were pulled off even better thanks to the unlikely addition of the living dead.
The movie is about a dead guy named R, who only remembers that his real name began with the aforementioned letter. He lives in a post apocalyptic world where there are three types of people: living people, dead people who look like living people, and these things called bonies (insert potential MLP joke here), who resemble a living skeletal anatomy fused with a muscular anatomy. The difference between bonies and zombies is that the later can still somewhat vaguely reason. But if they lose hope, they eat their own skin and thus become these creatures straight out of an RE movie/game. So "R", if you will, goes out to hunt humans in order to keep his so called zombie sanity.
But get this, while eating someone, he falls in love with a human girl by the name of Julie. R and Julie, get it? The Bard must be turning in his grave because he clearly came back to life and left it! Anyway, rather than get more brain food from her, R takes Julie to a safe spot and interacts with her. This is where the film's impressive twist takes place...
That's where the spoilers end. Really, this is a romantic movie more guys will like than girls, unless your girlfriend is a Romero fan. Yes, there's zombie violence here and there, but guess what? It's overshadowed with cute scenes where R tries to bond with Julie most of the time. And the ending is one of the most optimistic I've ever seen in a movie nowadays.
So I'd greatly recommend it, cause it certainly made ME feel alive again. ;)
