World War Z - Page 4

post #46 of 69
I'd be surprised if it's garbage, but I'm unsure why everyone's freaking out about the book. It was a cool premise and had a very good title, but otherwise it was also garbage.

^ Yes. The book was as dull as dishwater with maybe one or two interesting stories.

 

It sold because of the title and the idea that this was a worldwide event.

no, it sold well because people like zombies and it was better written than 99.99% of zombie novels.. and that's not saying much.

it wasn't that bad

Sold as a movie as it seems they pretty much threw out the concept of the book.

 

The book: I kept waiting for something to happen. I kept waiting for someone to give a shit about.

I waited for a good 300 pages.

Other than the zombie CGI looking a little unfinished, I cannot wait to watch this.

The poster looks epic, but when you see stuff like that in the trailer and zombies flow from area to area like a river of thick sewage, it just ruins it.

Are they competing with The Wolverine for the worst movie poster award? Garbage.

Movie looks fine, it's not going to be like the book but why would it? The average North American (target audience) attention span and ability to process what they're seeing doesn't allow for that many story lines and character development within one movie. That's just the way it is, the movie will still be good but going into it with the mindset that it will be like the book just sets you up for disappointment.

What would make more sense would be to make a TV show (think of the Walking Dead). There's just far too much happening in the book for it to be compressed into a movie.

I read elsewhere of having a tv series where each episode(s) would follow a different person from the book.
