Re: Dead series
Yes, I can't wait for Land of the Dead to come out. I'll probably skip work the day it opens and catch a matinee, that's how big of a dork I am, lol. I am a big fan of Romero's stuff (zombie stuff in particular but his other stuff is decent too).
As for the Dawn remake, I loved it. Intense, scary, well paced, I thought it was great. I think most of the people that dislike it are trying to compare it to the original. Two different types of movies in my opinion, as was discussed a little bit above. The remake was an action flick with a horror slant, the original was more of a social commentary/horror flick with more well developed relationships among the characters. They both have their strengths and weaknesses in my opinion. If you put a gun to my head I like the original better though.
