Almost a good one.

"R" is a zombie, who struggles to be human. After eating a man's brain, he is close to being mortal again.

***
The story, over-all, is not THAT BAD. However, it should have been presented in a more mysterious way. At the back of my mind, the story should go backwards, with that, the film could have been more interesting. I think, the cast adapted the "twilight" acting. I cannot commend their performances, the acting was too effortless, maybe they thought it would still be entertaining just because it is a zombie movie, a teen-flick sci-fi or whatever you call it so they never really paid attention on the acting executions.
The movie could have been so much better, if only they use different perspective. For me, it would be better if it used the girl's perspective. The mystery, the ro...

Heartwarming bodies

It is too hard to give a zombie film a passing grade. But looks like, this mentality is to be thrown away, because warm bodies is a warmer and easily a passing film of such genre. The motto of the film is straight. The zombies are the good who are changing with time. The Bonies are the scrap creatures who show some rough stuff. Nicholas Hoult known as Mr. R is understanding the real change in zombies. The rare example is where, a zombie helps a US swat force to kill the Bonies. Mind blowing and really that was set back example where, this film has gone a step ahead. Teresa Palmer is caught by Nicholas. They slowly understand each other and develop a decent relationship. Director Jonathan has put the right stuff without giving too much into the plot. Who are the bonies? Well, I did not car...

Warm Bodies review

"He's bleeding...he's alive." Perry is killed by R, a zombie. Uncharacteristically, he saves Julie and tries to get to know her. M, R's best friend, becomes suspicious. The soundtrack, as good as it may seem, doesn't match certain scenes. The story's pace is slow and moves based only on memories. It was weird seeing R run when admittedly he moves slowly. Nicholas Hoult's portrayal makes the film watchable because of its believability and delightful his role. The screenplay was surprisingly provocative: "To feel better, a little less dead." "I wish I could dream." "Must be hard..I see you trying hard." "I should be happy with wht I have." "You can be whatever you want." So many positivity and minute cheesy lines, transformation of a corpse to being human again with no explanati...

Another Romantic Comedy with Zombies?

Twilight is gone, the final Twilight film (until they remake it or reboot it that is, and they almost certainly will at some point) was released last year and I say good riddance.

Sadly though there is recoil when a huge money making franchise play’s its “final chapter.” And in this case the recoil has come in the form of a series of blatant rip-offs that are trying to take its place.

Honestly I haven’t minded the Twilight rip-offs as much as I thought I might, and out of the ones I’ve seen so far Warm Bodies is by far the best. Beautiful Creatures was kind of lame, but it’s only real crime was blatant stupidity. Stupidity is also prevalent in Warm Bodies, but with an incredible level of self awareness. In other words: Warm Bodies is a goofy dumb premise for a movie, but its ...

'Warm Bodies' Movie Review

Let me start off this review by being very clear: I’m not a “Zombie Apocalypse” proponent, nor do I particularly understand the whole allure of the ‘Zombie genre’ movies. The idea of watching a bunch of unattractive mindless beings mill around sounds entirely too much like a visit to the DMV. But I have to admit, when I saw the previews for ‘Warm Bodies’, I felt hopeful that this might be a movie that could change my perception of the undead.

THE GOOD: Adapted to the screen from Isaac Marion’s book of the same title, ‘Warm Bodies’ is an extremely loosely translated version of’ Romeo & Juliet’, with---my apologies to Mr. Shakespeare--- WAY more clever and amusing dialogue. Our walking dead Romeo –‘R” for short (played by Nicholas Hoult) isn’t much for speaking, but we hear his intern...

Warm Bodies (2013) The zombie apocalypse has happened, and humans are barely hanging on. R (Nicholas Hoult) isn’t your ordinary zombie, as he is very aware of his surroundings and thinks too much. His world changes when he saves Julie (Teresa Palmer) from his fellow zombies. But the big questions are – why did he do it and can he keep her alive? We now have a movie genre called Zombie comedies, with 2004's Shaun of the Dead, 2009's Zombieland and now Warm Bodies. This zombie film is different than others because, for the first time, a zombie film is being told from the perspective of the zombies and not the humans. This film is funny, has heart and also has a very well-thought-out Romeo and Juliet type of romance between R the zombie and Julie, the human. While not for kids, the fi...
