It’d been a while since Jeremy and I made it out to a theater and the reason we went at all last night was because my studio movie grill groupons were expiring. Great reason, I know.
We chose to watch Warm Bodies, a film my friend Rachael has been raving about for a while. I hadn’t even thought about it until earlier in the day when I was going to give Rachael some groupons and realized they were set to expire that night!
What a†serendipitous series of events that led us to watch this somewhat silly but completely†lovable†movie on opening night!
No spoilers! Just a general overview ahead!
The plot follows a zombie teenager as he winds up dealing with the fact that he is in fact not simply a mindless eating machine. He must deal with having emotions and introspection which eventually leads him to connect with the living and change the fate of the undead.
At first I could only think “weird” when I thought about zombie romance (and this is coming from a seasoned Left 4 Dead 2 player) but the way it evolved throughout the story made it more than palatable. †I won’t ruin it more for you! Go check out the movie!! :)
