Re: Dead series
I should have mentioned this earlier, but it's my opinion that "28 Days Later" was a far superior movie to the "DoD" remake.
"28 Days Later" had compelling characters (especially the father-daughter relationship) combined with some real shock moments. Also, the zombies actually looked scary. And on top of that, the movie was shot brilliantly. It really was a work of art.
The "DoD" remake--well, I've already been down this road. The characters were really weak.
I do agree that it would have done better as a stand-alone film. Living up to the original is tough to do.
OPS is all that matters.
Batting average is the bane of my existence.
