United Nations employee Gerry Lane traverses the world in a race against time to stop the Zombie pandemic that is topping armies and governments, and threatening to destroy humanity itself. Starring: Brad Pitt, Mireille Enos, and Daniella Kertesz Directed by: Marc Foster Written by: Matthew Michael Carnahan, Drew Goddard, and Damon Lindelof   This is one of those movies that I had a couple of concerns about before seeing. The first one being that there would be too many CGI zombies, and not enough real ones. After all, who could miss the hoards of fake zombies seen in the previews? The good news is that there are some real zombies, and they look pretty good.   The bad news is that this isn't the typical zombie movie where the audience gets to see a bloody mess as a zombie tears someone apart. The zombies do attack people, but the audience never gets an up close juice picture of the action. I guess audiences will just have to wait for The Walking Dead to r

My Thoughts on True Blood Season 6 Episode 2

  So episode 1 really didn't start the season off with a bang. I was hoping episode 2 would get this ball rolling. For a while it didn't look good, and then bang! Something happened that certainly caught my attention. I'll get to that and more in my thoughts on episode 2, "The Sun."   We have waited and waited, and finally it looks like Warlow is here. We got a quick glimpse of him coming through a portal at the beginning of the episode. Let me ask, does anyone know who the Undertaker is? Yes, I have now reference the WWE in a piece about True Blood. Go figure!   Ok True Blood, you got me. It's early in the season, and I wasn't prepared. The old man wasn't Warlow the magician. It was Jason's fucking fairy grandfather. I don't know if I'm more stunned he's his grandfather, or that he said "fucking." Such language from fairies!   It was nice to see that Tara is all right. That was certainly a cool bullet in her. G

My Thoughts on True Blood Season 6 Episode 1

  Waiting no longer sucks unless you are still waiting for Dexter (yup still sucks). We are finally back to the land where naked evil Superman flies around, and Mary Poppins and her brother have to come up with a way to stop him. Sounds like a bad comic, but it’s not. It’s just True Blood being True Blood, and it’s good to have the funny character descriptions back. So lets take a look at episode 1, “Who Are You, Really?”   First, I’m glad they started where they left off, which was expected. I hate when they fast-forward months ahead (cough Falling Skies cough). However, the group’s escape really wasn’t as dramatic as I wanted. It was almost too easy. I guess we got all the death, and craziness in the season finale. It was cool seeing Billith take off like Superman (thanks Jason).   Then the group started not being a group, and we got to see where the characters are going to start off the season. As mentioned, Eric and Nora look like they are going to be the ones tasked w
