Army of the Dead (Netflix) No SpoilersPosted by buddyscalera on May 23, 2021 at 8:26 am
(No spoilers.) Absolutely loved the over-the-top Army of the Dead movie by Zach Snyder. Big action, big acting, awesome zombies.
Don’t think to hard about the plot. It’s a zombie apocalypse in Las Vegas. Just go with it.
I hope they make comic book spinoffs. I’d buy those. Better yet, I’d like to write them.
What do you guys think?

I think this would have blown my mind if I was like 13. I am little too jaded on Snyder to get into it.

My inner 13-year-old boy was entertained!
Was it that it was Zach Snyder, @Glen or the actual movie?

I think i’m going to give it a go this week and take some time out for it. I haven’t been on Zombie-related stuff in quite a while, so this could be a nice reintroduction to the genre. I’m at the point where the content needs to be in the Zombieland range of entertainment, and I think this gives me kind of those vibes but with more bombastic action(and one liners I’m SURE).
@buddyscalera have you written anything zombie-related to date?

Yes, but it was never published. I wrote a good zombie story for a small indie, but they closed down before it was published.
Apocalypse Blvd is my monster apocalypse story: https://www.comicbookschool.com/titles/apocalypse-blvd-digital/

i usually love dumb movies. case in point: i will watch all the Fast and The Furious movies. but for some reason i kept rolling my eyes with all the cliches on this movie. and i kept saying “good! you should just die cuz you’re dumb”. i find myself saying that over and over too when i used to watch The Walking Dead. Maybe im just over the whole zombie trope thing and how everyone seems to act dumb in it. Or maybe it’s because i finished it at 3am and I’m supposed to wake up at 5am to run (i didn’t). The women are so pretty though i feel my face fluster whenever there’s an extreme close up of them.
I guess it would be fin if youre a little high and buzzed and was watching it with friends so you can scream at the screen together.

If you want a movie to be logical, @XanderXero you may not want to start with zombies or anything by Zach Snyder. Both are pure escapism. 😀
There were some eye-rolling moments, but we let them slide for the greater good of our entertainment.

😆 you’re right. imagine a world though where daughters from a zombie movie actually listens to their bad ass fathers. or weak, inexperienced mothers actually say “hm. you know what? i have no business going into a town of zombies. i never killed anything in my life. i’ll just stay here with my daughters”.
maybe we should make a movie like that. make me act in it, Buddy… but this time, don’t kill the asian like they did with Glenn
