Snow shuffle

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.

My favorite?

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.

Sick.

  1. Three things:
    1. Are the other two worth seeing? Working on my own double feature.
    2. Zombie Boy is adorable. I just have to not think about the “old enough to be his mother” thing.
    3. On the other hand, Jeremy Renner is adorable AND age appropriate in the 2-strong-drinks-required-to-make-it-watchable Hansel & Gretel. Cheers.
