    Oh! I'm so excited!

    George A. Romero is finished with his next project, Diary of the Dead! It comes out Feb. 15. If you wanna find out more about it go to myspace.com/diaryofthedead. I don't know about y'all, but I'm definetely seeing it!

    Hmmm. Mixed feelings. Land of the dead was awful.

    I think that Ramero's movies are fun, but I agree with Banzai. They've been going downhill since Dawn of the Dead. Then again, their probably the best zombie movies I've ever seen anyway, second only to Shaun of the Dead of course!

    Ah yes, Land of the Dead was a complete and udder pile of poopy. In fact, when I think of Romero, that movie doesn't even come to mind. That's why when people say "Romero's four zombie films" I'm like "what?" and then I remember about LOD. Dawn of the Dead was great, but I wouldn't say it went downhill from Dawn. Day of the Dead was another superb film and I absolutely love it as much as Dawn.
    And of course, Shaun of the Dead was a riot. If you liked that, then you ought to check out Fido for more fix on quirky zombie comedies.

    The Crasies, that was good (They are remaking it)
    Night of the Living Dead
    Dawn Of the Dead
    Day of the Dead
    Land of the Dead (It was better than Resident Evil)
    Marten, it was a nice, origenal look on Vampire films)

    You?

    Hmm, Night, Dawn, and Day are all classic hallmarks in horror. Creepshow was pretty good as well, but I would have to disagree strongly about Land. Resident Evil was a far superior zombie film.

    I agree with Valient. Resident Evil was a surprisingly good movie. As a general rule Video Game movies suck. RE is a happy exception. Sure the trilogy got worse as it went along as many tilogies do but their all at the very least B movies. I wouldn't even give Land of the Dead a C.

    Lol Uwe Boll, the king of vg movies, is absolutely the worst director ever! But, yes, as far as video game movies go, RE takes the crown. It's fairly scary and pretty good, even the later ones. I agree totally that Land of the Dead isn't even a C movie.

    Well the first movie was okay, the rest are bad.

    The games are amazing, particularly the 4th. I can't wait for the fifth this year - the Africans look much faster = increase tension/stress levels. :D

    Hate to break it to you Bluemouth but RE:5 is slated for an unspecified 2009 release. Don't worry though. 09 is right around the corner and a game like RE:5 may be well worth the wait if they can maintain RE:4's amazing quality.

    Ah yes, RE4 is my all time favorite game! I seriously hope RE5 can live up to its potential.

    I liked RE3- Nemisis- like the one before playstation 2! Loved it. At first the beasty dude was scary but then I just got annoyed with him! HAHAHA. you'll hear this omnious scary STARS! then you would of heard me go: "Oh would you just **** off!" then proceed to blow the guy away.

    I like Shaun of the dead, but generally as a rule, hate zombie movies. Probably because of that subconcious fear that it really will happen one day. We'll wake up one lovely morning to find the mailman chewing on the dog and the neighbours munching on the milkman.

    Lol, STARS! Classic Nemesis line.
    I dream about surviving in a world with zombies, and yes I know that's strange. :D
