Z is for..........

Z is for..........Zombieland.

I'm not a big zombie fan. I know The Walking Dead is huge these days. I've done a couple drivebys, but I wasn't hooked.

I generally won't even bother with a zombie movie, but I did enjoy Zombieland quite a bit. I gave it a shot because I like the young actors: Jesse Eisenberg, Emma Stone, and Abigail Breslin.

It wasn't the gore that won me over. There was plenty of that, but it was the sense of humor that got me. I'm probably reading way too much into a zombie movie, but I also thought I detected a little metaphor going on. The teenage experience as a postapocalyptic gauntlet of brain-eating zombies.

Or something like that.

Well folks, there you have it, the last post of the A-Z Blogging Challenge. Thanks to everyone for reading and commenting. The feedback has been awesome and greatly appreciated. I was crazy busy with track this month, so I wasn't around as much as I would have liked. Again, thanks to everyone for making this challenge a rewarding experience.  


  1. I couldn't get into ZOMBIELAND but I am a huge fan of THE WALKING DEAD.

    Congrats on finishing A-Z! :)

  2. You may well be right about the teenage thing -- my teens are into zombies, me, not so much.

  3. It's been another fun challenge with you! :)

  4. I am not big on zombies, so I didn't watch this movie. I haven't given The Walking Dead a drive-by, so you are more up on that than I.

    I have enjoyed your cinematic blasts. Look forward to seeing you after the A-Z, too:)

  5. Zombieland is one of my favourite movies :-) I like Jesse and Emma Stone.

    Congratulations on completing the challenge

  6. You gotta drive by The Walking Dead again or get one of the graphic novels. It didn't work for me the first time either but then... whoa. So much humanity within the inhumanity.
