Hmm, just got back from the movie, and i really really wanted to like it, but unfortunately it was nothing more than a average mediocre zombie movie with enough blood to push the R-rating to the brink of NC-17 (sorry for non-americans, i dunno toehr rating systems :p). If anyone else has any comments please tell me, because i just can't bring myself to enjoy this movie, and i am a huge horror film nut, especially george a. romero's clasics, but this one probably wont hurt or help his reputation, just seems too...done before. I have a bigger review in my blog, just didnt feel like typing at all again.

I'de Love some feedback.

although i did enjoy looking for the director and actor from shaun of the dead being zombies in the movie, though they were really easy to spot. It's really good to see romero back, but i want some new interesting ideas, not stuff he's already covered in other movies. Seems more like an excuse to kill people in as many gruesome ways as possible than a movie.

Erm, sorry for my ignorance, but is Land of the Dead a remake/sequel of those previous zombie-infesting movies? (e.g. Dawn of the dead)

Goofs: Errors in geography: When Cholo is raiding the liquor store in Uniontown he takes cigars from a display. Liquor stores in Pennyslvannia (which are all state run) do not sell tobacco products of any kind. The only items one can buy in them other than wine and spirits are corkscrews and wine sleeves.
