Arnold Schwarzenegger should get Oscar nomination for his role in “Maggie” and I really mean that!!!

Well I finally got around to watching the movie “Maggie” starring Arnie and Abigail Breslin. It was a really good movie too. It’s definitely one of the best movies released this year and I also think it’s Arnie’s best acting role. I really think Arnold should get Oscar nominated for his role in this film ’cause he did a good job with his acting in this film. You know how in most movies that Arnie’s acting wasn’t all that good? He’s more of an entertainer than an actor? Well, he really showed his acting chops in this movie and this movie proved that he can act really good! The reason is ’cause this is a different role for Arnold. He doesn’t play a typical tough guy & badass like he does in most of his movies. In this movie, Arnold is more serious and more real.

Yes, this film is a zombie film indeed but it’s not like the “Walking Dead” at all. You’re gonna see a different kind of zombie movie. Yes, in “Maggie” there are still some pretty scary scenes but this film mostly focuses on the story. It’s a more serious story. “Maggie” can be a bit slow pacing movie but that’s what I like about it. The movie can get pretty sad and intense at times. This movie is about a young girl who is infected by a virus and while she is being sick & has time to live her father stays by her side and supports her… the virus turns people into flesh eating zombies. While Maggie still has time, Arnie’s character, Wade Vogel refuses to quarantine his daughter and he wants to take care of her before she turns.

Like I said, this is no typical zombie film… you’re not gonna see “The Walking Dead” and you’re not gonna see George Romero at all. If you’re expecting those kind of zombie movies with this film, then you might be disappointed.

I really was impressed with Arnie’s acting in this film, he did an incredible job. This movie can get really sad though so if you watch this better have a box of kleenex nearby for sure. I’m thinking about re-watching it again later tonight ’cause it really was that damn good. I rented it through Netflix DVD. I think I’m definitely gonna buy it on BluRay too.

You should definitely check this one out.

Arnold’s zombie apocalypse movie, “Maggie” teaser is out…

Arnold trying to do horror movies is nothing new. He already did a horror movie in 1999 called, “End of Days” which is a good one and you’ve probably seen it. Arnold decides to try the horror genre again with a film called, “Maggie”, a zombie apocalypse film.

I’m a big fan of zombies and stuff so I’m looking forward to this.

This for sure looks like a totally different movie for Arnold. Instead of being the typical tough guy action hero like he always is, his role in “Maggie” looks a little more serious.

The film comes out in May and I think I’m definitely gonna go check it out. Enjoy!

Film Review: Zombieland

Starring: Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Emma Stone, Abigail Breslin, and a special surprise guest.

Directed by: Ruben Fleischer

Today, I saw the movie “Zombieland” on my day off of work. There are two movies out in theater now that I want to see. They are either “Zombieland” or Drew Barrymore’s “Whip It”. I just had to see “Zombieland” first. I want to see “Whip It” too, but I will see that next. Here is my review of “Zombieland”.

Plot/Synopsis: Two men who are named Columbus (Jesse Eisenberg) and Tallahassee (Woody Harrelson) team up to try and survive their life, when the world is taken over by zombies that eats human flesh. Columbus dreams of falling in love with a girl if he ever finds a human one alive, while Tallahassee’s only mission is to eat a snack called a Twinkie which is very hard to find. Later in the film, the two men team up with these two young girls, Wichita (Emma Stone) and Little Rock (Abigail Breslin), who are better at fighting off the zombies then the two men are. Plus, there is a very special surprise celebrity cameo guest that won’t be revealed in this review. You will have to see the film yourself to find out.

As expected, I thought the movie was very fun and entertaining, it was great. The movie was funny as hell, and had laughs all the way through. It’s also a mix of horror and action. I thought it was more of an action movie than anything though. The action scenes in the film were brilliant.

The zombies in the film were pretty well made. I wasn’t bored at all in this movie and had a smile on my face throughout the whole film. I was most impressed by Woody Harrelson’s acting in this film. His acting was so good in it.

It told a good story too. This film made you really wonder what it would be like if living dead people really took over this world in real life. I don’t think this is a type of film that George A. Romero would have made. This film was completely different from Romero’s style. I think this was one of the best new zombie movies I’ve seen in a long time.

As far as who is the celebrity guest appearance that made a cameo in the film, I’m not gonna say…but I can give you a few clues…

This guy recently did voice overs for a video game based on a popular movie. He used to be an SNL actor. He was the first special guest on David Letterman’s “The Late Show” in 1982.

“Zombieland” was a blast, fuckin’ loved it! I would reccomend you to see it before it stops playing!

Score for “Zombieland” = **** (4 stars as in “Excellent”)
