Many of my friends recommended this movie to me and I had such high hopes for it, that I actually bought the dvd without watching it first.  I’m not sure if my expectations were met or not.  I certainly enjoyed parts of the movie – I thought the acting by the two leads was fantastic.  Nicholas Hoult really inhabited his character and his voiceover was hilarious.  When he was telling himself not to be creepy (see Gif above) or to say something human, I found myself relating so much.  Because who doesn’t need to be reminded now and then to be human?

I know this film is based on a book and I’m now interested enough to want to read it.  I wonder if there’s more explanation for certain things, like how the apocalypse started, and why “R” was so much more aware than the other zombies seemed to be.  All and all, I’ll watch the movie again, if only to see if I like it better when giving it my full attention (live-tweeting certainly does divide my focus).
