The zombie apocolypse will be televised

I can't tell you how jazzed I am for George Romero's new zombie film - Diary of the Dead. Right now Richmond isn't on the short list of cities that will be showing it on opening day (Feb. 15), but I'm optimistic that we'll be getting it...sometime.

The only trepidation I have is that, while I know that at least part of it is filmed in that shakey-cam style which all the kids love nowadays, I don't know if the whole thing is shot like that. See, I DETEST that style of filmmaking, especially if it is overdone and unnecessary. I got sick because of it during The Bourne Supremacy and it's what is stopping me from seeing Cloverfield. But this is a zombie flick. A George Romero zombie flick. I have to see it right when it comes out. Guess I'll just down a handful of Dramamine pills beforehand.

Believe me, I'd join you in a chorus of groans, tsk tsks, hrumphs, and other disturbing body noises since I DESPISE the shaky cam...but, it's Romero. He gets a pass.

Sit towards the back and it's not nearly as disconcerting. That's how I saw Cloverfield and it made the movie bad only due to lame writing and not lame writing and shaky camerawork.
