Warm Bodies is everything you could want in a movie; zombies, love, comedy, and
Hey guys! Warm Bodies came out today, February 1st, and I felt it was time to do a review! I was able to see an advanced screening earlier this week, and I’ve been waiting anxiously for it to release nationwide so I could gush to you all about it. For starters, Warm Bodies is a book written by Isaac Marion.
Here’s something you should know about me. I love zombies. I love all kinds of zombies. Slow zombies, fast zombies, scary zombies, gory zombies. I looooooved Zombieland, which is the best comparison I can give you for Warm Bodies. The two movies are very similar in that there are 1) zombies, duh 2) A few moments where you’ll cringe/jump 3) lots of moment where you will laugh 4) a budding romance 5) above all else, quotable jokes. Quotable jokes are the best part of movies, because you can immortalize them forever. For instance, I’m still quoting Fat Amy from Pitch Perfect.
Here’s the plot: Zombie boy named R has a conscious, and an eye on human girl Julie. (SPOILER ALERT: If you haven’t been able to figure it out, super Romet/Juliet). They meet after he eats her boyfriend’s brains, which gives zombies all of that person’s memories. R kidnaps Julie to keep her safe from other zombies, cue cuteness. I don’t want to give anything away, so I’ll leave you with this. Warm Bodies is everything you expect, and more. Even a little bit that you won’t expect. The ending was something that I saw coming, but there were still aspects that were unpredictable. There’s something for everyone, and it’s a movie that you’ll enjoy.
Below, you’ll find the first four minutes of the movie, if you’re interested. You can pretty much get a feel for the entire movie in just that short amount of time. I happen to think it’s perfect.
Also, A lot of people have been tweeting about how they want a Warm Bodies sequel, and if you’re one of those people, not to fret. Isaac is writing a second Warm Bodies book that’s set to be published in 2014. Don’t forget, Warm Bodies is in theaters now!
