Zombieland: Loved it!

Finally got out there to see Zombieland, and it did not disappoint. This is Woody Harrelson's movie. His character is so awesomely over the top. Zombie movies tend to be hit or miss, and it's silly for them to be anything other than comedies, but this one rules. Plus it's a road trip movie. And they use Fringe titles in the middle of the film. The dialog is hilarious.

You know what else is hilarious? Abigail Breslin killing zombies with a shotgun. This tiny little Miss Sunshine girl, cocking a shotgun, blowing away zombies. If that's not quality cinema, I don't know what is. I like that she's just slightly evil in this one, and still manages to be charming. If she continues to get a variety of solid roles, she could definitely be a big star. Looks like she'll be a cute teenager.

Emma Stone, the girl from Superbad, is smoking hot (she rocks the dark eyeliner look), and like her onscreen sister, manages to be slightly evil yet charming. She's got that straight-faced sarcasm that I'm crazy about, the very matter-of-fact delivery.

Jesse Eisenberg, I'm not sure what to think of him. He's like a less pussy-ish version of Michael Cera, who I'm already tired of seeing playing the same role over and over. If this dude doesn't diversify, he's in for the same destiny. They painted a nice profile of his character right at the start.

This is definitely one for the DVD collection when it comes out. Hopefully it'll be rich in special features.
