Forum rules
You are free to offer your opinions on a show, episode, book, film, film series, cinematic universe, etc., as long as it applies to that item, and not to the stated or assumed political views of the producers, writers, actors, key grip, best boy, intern, etc., of said item. In short, you want to talk about a show or movie, talk about the show or movie.

Others are free to disagree with your opinion. (You are not entitled to express your opinion in a vacuum.) BUT that opposing opinion must follow the same requirements above that the original opinion had to follow, as well as not bringing in the assumed political views of the original poster. (I leave out "stated" as they should not state any political position here on STPMA.)

ALSO, do not toss about derogatory labels at someone who offers an opinion in opposition to yours. No name calling, political labels (SJW, etc.,) questioning their humanity, morality, ethics, true fan status, or your assumption they are in the business to protect a certain fandom (gatekeeping, etc.). Again, discuss the show or movie not the politics or motives of another poster.

If you dislike something, it's perfectly fine to say so. However, posting your dislike every time someone else says anything positive about a show or movie, essentially stating the same thing over and over again is not acceptable. If you have something new to add, or are replying to a specific point in someone else's comment, okay. But if it's just to state once again, "IT SUCKS!" Don't.

Tilda Swinton with a katana is worth the price of admission.
I'm sorry, but ... Megan Rapinoe looks ridiculous with purple hair.

This.

Also, Adam Driver playing a dry comedy role should be amazing.

Went to see this on Saturday. Sadly, not even Tilda made this worth the admission.

What they got right -
Spoiler:
They did some pretty good riffs on the old horror films of the late 70s and early 80s - the dead air space, driving down deserted country roads, and (as was pointed out to me) George Romero's tendency to include social commentary. Also, the young policeman (Adam Driver) has a smart car that is painted to match the Zebra 3 (Starsky's car) which I found quite amusing. And Tilda Swinton's character is named Zelda and maneuvers through her scenes as if she actually were a video game character (square turns and all)
What they got wrong -
Spoiler:
Sadly, most everything else. This movie was slower than slow. Some of the gags were good but repeated in such a way that rather than giggling that they kept repeating, you groaned that they were saying that *again*. There were characters that were there and seemed to be leading up to plot points (or at least amusing deaths) that were then either killed off screen or just wandered off into the sunset. The Zombies were kind of amusing at points...but not as funny as they could have been. And damn, with the cast they had this could have been a really amazing show....and it just wasn't.

I guess I'll watch it when it shows up on Amazon or Netflix.
