It’s a blizzard out there.
So I did what the weather demanded — saw a triple feature at AMC Theatres: Warm Bodies, Identity Thief and Side Effects.
Hands down. No competition.
Zombie movies normally aren’t my thing. But this is no average run-of-the-mill zombie flick.
Sure, there are zombies shuffling about, covered in gore, on the lookout for brains to eat.
But Warm Bodies is a love story — how meeting one girl helps a zombie learn how to become human again.
It’s sweet and laugh-out-loud-funny — although not everyone in the theater today seemed to get it — and an obvious metaphor about society’s ills. But what really killed me is that the oh-so-cute zombie I was jonesin’ over was portrayed by Nicholas Hoult, who played the little kid in About a Boy.
