Re: Official RedsZone Movie Thread (pt. III)
Saw World War Z yesterday afternoon. It was worth the matinee price and fighting a rainy 4th of July crowd. That's a pretty high compliment coming from me as I will normally avoid crowds and have only seen 1 movie besides this in the last 5+ years.
I loved the book so it was nice to know that the movie diverged greatly from Max Brooks' ideas going in. It was still fairly smart and touched on the geopolitics of how different countries were dealing with the infection, so, "loosely based" is accurate. If I hadn't known to disassociate from the book however, I would have been disappointed.
Everything that can be counted does not necessarily count; everything that counts cannot necessarily be counted.
