    I loved the absurdity of the first one. This one looks like it's been cranked up!

    I can't remember if I liked the first one or not. Don't think I reviewed it either. But I seem to remember the first one feeling more quiet and "talkie" where this one looks to be leaning into action more. Is that the sense you get, John?

    Not at all familiar with this fanchise, but I got the feeling it was a sequel to something.
    So I assume Zombie land is like a theme park where you get to go and "kill" zombies for fun? Wandering around the ruins of a former civilisation? That the sense I got from the first half of the trailer, but the second half suggests to me that the movie is less about zombies, and more about human hijinks. Not sure what to make of it but that's probably just because I lack context.

    That's what I remember of the first movie, although it's not a theme park, its an actual zombie apocalypse.

    The first one has Bill Murray as a zombie! That alone was worth the cost of admission!

    From what I remember, the original movie didn't have many characters outside of the main four, and it was about the comedy that came from these four living in the zombie apocalypse. I don't know that I like how many new characters they are bringing into this sequel and making it more about human hijinks.

    This was by far the best part of the movie! So funny!


    Ultimately, in my opinion, Zombieland is a poor man's version of Shawn of the Dead. What a Face
