we saw land of the dead

Gloria, John C., and I just saw Land of the Dead. It was good.

I had told Gloria that as long as it was at least as good as Day of the Dead, Iโ€™d be happy with it โ€“ this was not a tall order. It was much better, even though it did not live up to the promise of the original Day script, from which it took many ideas.

I sincerely hope that George A. Romero makes more Living Dead movies, and that he eventually does make the Dusk of the Dead that he once suggested: the zombies are spent, and groaning corpses are everywhere. Most people just try to ignore them, and the cleanup effort is nearly nil. He said something like, โ€œpeople just step over them and look the other way, as if the zombies were homeless people.โ€

Sure, 28 Days Later was fun to watch, but Romero is more interesting.
