[Movie Preview] What I Want from World War Z

World War Z is here! What? Another Zombie Movie? Ever since Walking Dead hit mainstream, everyone else has been trying to take a slice of that huge money making zombie pie.

World War Z is based on the book by Max Brooks. Obviously Z stands for zombie. I haven’t read it, but I have read his other book “Zombie Survival Guide” which was pretty awesome. It didn’t really have a story, it was more like a handbook for folks on how to survive the apocalypse. It had stuff on it like what to bring with you (so that would be important gear like rations that don’t spoil easily, knife, water). It also had really practical tips like what to wear (clingy so zombies don’t have anything to grab hold of… same goes for the hair so these need to be cut short. One of my favorite parts of the book was on where to hide when there is an apocalypse. You would think that a house with a second floor would be sufficient? Think again, you’ll run out of water and food soon enough. Bunk in a grocery store? Nope, groceries usually have glass windows. So stuff like that. It was a good book.

Again, I haven’t read World War Z. I heard it was a so-so book. But someone obviously thought it was good enough to be in a movie with Brad Pitt in it. After watching the trailers, I was cautiously excited about it. I thought the zombie mosh pit was pretty cool.
I’ll be having my chance to watch it this week, here are the things that I will be looking for:
  1. Little children
    • There’s nothing that makes you feel more vulnerable, helpless and want to hate zombies like little kids. I expect there to be a lot of this. Plus points if they have the guts to let the zombies EAT the kids.

  2. Zombie brains
    • Some sort of brain bashing that will make the zombie heads explode. Gun to the head is probably what I’ve come to expect. Plus points if they make the head blow up. Plus more points if it’s with the use of blunt instruments to bash the head over.

  3. Fast Zombies
    • I.Love.Fast.Zombies! Ever since 28 days/weeks later movies enabled zombies to run, I have always come to enjoy that type more. In the trailer it seems that we’re getting this. Slow zombies are boring. Whoever gets eaten by one of those is an idiot. So hurrah for sprinting zombies.

  4. Brutal Kills
    • On the other corner of the ring. I also want people’s faces being eaten off by the zombies. This is what I have come to expect. Minus points if they cut away when people are being eaten. I want to see.

  5. President making bad decisions
    • We always want to see the folks in power make dumb choices that shows you how out of touch they are with the (movie) reality. Nuke this place, carpet bomb that, shoot civies. “But sir, there’s innocent… I understand sir”.

  6. Explanation why it’s called World War Z
    • Yeah. It has zombies so Z. But why is it a world war? Are nations fighting against each other? Tell me!

  7. Brad Pitt moments
    • I want this level of emotion from Brad! You can actually cut out the last part and insert whatever. Who cares. This is awesome.
