Speaking of Zombies, did anyone see WWZ? No spoilers please () I just want to know if it lived up to the 9 months of hype?

Not the book, but good. No gore, but still some tense moments

I agree, it's a good movie and only very remotely related to the book. I think it should stand on it's own and not claim to be based on the book.

Hey, isn't this thread supposed to be about REAL zombies, not fictional ones?

Good. I would like to read what you have to say about this LAME flick.

I'm a bit worried. I enjoy a good zombie movie and went to see WWZ yesterday. I didn't like it. It wasn't horrible, but I could have left in the middle and not felt like I missed anything. Did I somehow outgrow the zombie genre or was this just not a very good movie?

nope it ain't you. there are some good parts and there are a couple of laughs (?) but save your money. They really lamed it up. there are two more coming out or at least one more. I heard BP went in to the editing room to try to fix it up somewhat. he needed to work longer hours. for a 200 million dollar movie, they really screwed up.

added - However...I did like the solution to the problem. I am guessing it didn't work for long since there is a part two in the works.

If YOU look to the beginning of that post you should be able to read

that Ghostyman said-
"No! Tell me more...."

So, shouldn't your issue be with him instead?

Addressing your FIRST question; what shape do folk recognise as being intended as a coffin-shape . . . . box or double taper?



Don't see Dracula in that photo!



Undertaker Rob Evans with one of the oversized coffins. Picture by Simon Rogers.
This coffin is made for bigger people in the UK; not Dracula:

Too fat for cremation


Quote:
FAT people in Worcester are having to be cremated outside the city because the crematorium furnace is not big enough to cope.
Undertakers are having to take bodies to Bristol and Redditch to be cremated.
The problem has arisen because Astwood Road crematorium is too narrow for the super-sized coffins used for bigger people.
More than 400 councils across the country have been told by the Local Government Association to provide bigger furnaces to deal with fatter people.
Rob Evans, manager of Bedwardine Funeral Service, St John's, Worcester, said: "We have had to send some to Redditch or Bristol, where they have bigger crematoriums.
Addressing your SECOND question; Are you saying that YOU actually think Zombies exist outside written fiction and the movies?
There would be few prepared to say that one shouldn't be concerned about any listing of children killed by gunshot because they were probably only Zombie Children anyway!

these tucking anti theist little bitches are always wanting you to give up your guns and lick the boot of their masters.
Governments kill kids with drones and mercenaries. So suck you twat. If you don't like zombies, move along.

Am I the only one who feels like firearms fall very low on the priority list for a zombie apocalypse scenario?
Priority to me would be mobility and getting away from places where people/zombies would congregate. There's a big world out there, if you can make yourself mostly self-sufficient (or a small group of you), you could probably grow old without having to deal with many zombies.

Reason I'm not a fan of guns for ZA:
Probably biggest reason to me is that they make a lot of sound. Yes, you can muffle them, but real world silencers (especially make-shift ones) aren't as effective as Hollywood implies. The LAST thing I'd want to do if I did come across a zombie is alert other ones to my location as well.
