The Borg Queen steps outside her comfort zone.
World War Z – B
I am not a fan of scary movies, and I absolutely loathe zombie movies. So, I’m not sure what possessed me to see World War Z. This movie centers on a United Nations employee (Brad Pitt) who is traveling the world trying to find a cure for a pandemic of unknown origins that is causing people to turn into zombies. One bite, and you’re a zombie seconds later. The movie wastes no time getting straight into the action and it’s a roller coaster ride all the way to the end. I was constantly on the edge of my seat (or, under it sometimes) and engaged with the film. The movie has its fair share of scares and, thankfully, is not gory. The camera work, especially in the action sequences, is too shaky for my taste, making it hard to see what is actually taking place at times. I also heard some people grumbling outside the theater about the movie being different from the book upon which the film is based. So, I guess if you’ve read the book, be open to differences. Overall, though, this movie is a fun night out.
