It has Land-ed
Darth Vader couldn't do it. Batman couldn't do it. Even Angelina Jolie in a bustier couldn't do it. What is "it"? Getting me to put up with the (rude) crowds and go see a movie on opening day.
But I am going to see Land of the Dead today. And no, I will not be dressing up like a zombie. In fact, it'll be quite the opposite, since I started using Crest Premium Plus White Strips yesterday.
EDIT: So, I went to the theater today. In line in front of me were two boys (about 12 years old, I guess) who bought tickets to Mr. & Mrs. Smith. Guess who sat right in front of me at Land of the Dead. It's nice to see that the system still doesn't work. :)
The movie rocked. It totally flew by (running time's about 90 minutes). Full of Romero's patented social commentary. Plenty of gore. And Dennis Hopper picks his nose. Not that I didn't fully enjoy the Dawn remake, but it's great to see slow, lumbering zombies on screen.
I missed Shaun's Simon Pegg and Edgar White as zombies (afterwards I did find a pic of zombified Simon here), but there is also one HUGE zombie cameo. Well, huge if you are a Romero fan. And if you aren't a fan, you'll know who I'm talking about when he comes onscreen, as the fanboys in the audience will be cheering.
