Zombieland (2009): Quarantine Cinema Day 7

Zombieland (2009) is our next quarantine flick.

Did you miss me? I'm not sick SICK, but I did have a little migraine. For today's installment, we're watching one of the few zombie comedies on my list. A zomedy.

Zombieland (2009): Quarantine Cinema

Zombieland is a fun romp with campy graphics and lots of silliness. The flick opens with a quick glimpse into the past showing Washington D.C. in ruins and how suburban America has fallen.

Soon it's clear that the world as we know it is over. No more princess birthday parties.

Quickly we meet our main character, Columbus (Jesse Eisenberg), a young white "everyman" survivor. He shares with us his rules of survival. For my fellow fatties, the scene introducing the rules is very ableist. That's the only problematic bit I noticed, but there's possibly more.

Columbus has a nervous enounter with Tallahassee (Woody Harrelson). Calm heads prevail and they join up.

Next to join the team is Wichita (Emma Stone) and Little Rock (Abigail Breslin). These sisters are on a mission to find a zombie free amusement park all the way across the country in L.A. Yes you heard that right, we're headed to an amusement park and the characters suspect… no zombies‽ LOL.

Our group travels through empty cities and encounter some crazy survivors along the way.

One of my favorite parts is a stop at a Route 66 style, old-fashioned, stereotypical tourist roadside shop.

Where we're encouraged to follow Rule : "Enjoy the Little things." I know this had been challenging for me lately, so personally, I'm going to work on that rule.

FINALLY we arrive at the amusement park! Spoilers, I guess, there are ZOMBIES.

The last half of the movie is a romp through the amusement park. Fun fights with zombies and tender moments where are thrown together band of misfits becomes a family. This movie does pass the Bechdel test, but there are no main or really even bit characters of POC. 

Join in the fun

Let me know what I should add to my ever growing list either on social media or email me here. For now I'm sticking with movies -- theatrical releases, straight to DVD, or TV movies.
