Now I have to be THAT guy

February 1, 2013 at 10:45 am (The Movie I'm not Seeing this Weekend) (, , )

So I saw Warm Bodies (the book) laying on the table at the bookstore. I picked it up and perused the back cover.

I'd've perused the front cover, but it was kind of off-putting.

A zombie romance? Man, I liked zombies before they were cool.

(I kind of hate myself.)

Warm Bodies, a zombie romance, has been made into a movie. Apparently, it’s something like a parody of Twilight, which seems silly to me, because why bother to parody something that’s already a parody of writing to begin with?

Also, does anybody else think Edgar Allen Poe would be so happy right now. "What's this? Necrophilia is cool now? Huzzah!"

Seriously, though, it just seems like all you’d need to do is point at Twilight and laugh.

Anyway, it’s the epic love story between Beast from X-Men: First Class, aka a zombie who only remembers his first initial: R, and a living human girl named Julie. R and Julie, if you didn’t get the reference. Also, a link if you really didn’t get the reference.

Plus this photo, for if you're too lazy to click the link: It's Romeo and Juliet, you guys. Romeo and Juliet!

And somehow, because Beast from X-Men has feelings now, all the rest of the zombies start having feelings, except for the zombies who are skeletons, because people are so delicious. (A side note: ignoring the fact that why should dead things want to eat anything to begin with, why would skeletons want to eat anything? They don’t have stomachs anymore, or taste buds, or throats or anything. So they just gnaw at you because why the hell not??) So then it’s the humans and the nice zombies vs. the skeleton zombies, and it actually looks kind of funny.

Well, except for when they go for the really obvious jokes, of course.

But that doesn’t matter, because I am so over zombies now.

I liked them before they were cool.

But not well enough to hang up any stupid posters in my home, thank God.

    I didn’t get the R and Julie reference, AND I was too lazy to click the link. Thanks for coming to the rescue with that picture!
