Zombieland was one of those films that fought the odds of predictability. Instead of going the expected lowgrade way, it ended up being fresh, intelligent and exciting. No one expected me to like this, the only reason I even ended up seeing it was my undying admiration of Woody Harrelson and the hype Eisenberg had been gathering.
I don’t like Sam Raimi. I’m sorry geekazoids, he just doesn’t cut it for me. I’m not at all into zombie horror, I like some slashers, and horror that has more of a psychological edge. I’m really, extremely picky when it comes to comedy. I don’t get the Emma Stone love; yeah, she’s cute but is she in any way an exciting, exceptionally talented actress? No. So, all this considered, it was quite a surprise that Zombieland shot itself straight into my top 10 of 2009.
Zombieland mixed genres with ease and found a cast that might’ve possibly had the best chemistry I’d seen onscreen in a while. I have no doubt this shall live on as a cult classic, an instant favourite passed on by word-of-mouth.
