Recently over the weekend, I have indulged myself to the series The Walking Dead. In roughly 16 hours, I watched the first (and only(for now)) two seasons. If I do say so myself, that’s quite a feat. Now if you haven’t heard of it here’s a link to a short summary of its story. I must say it is quite an excellent TV series and I put it on par with the brilliance that is Dexter. Anyway that’s not what I’m here to write about today. Watching the series got me thinking. If this all really did happen, could it last? My answer to that; no, it couldn’t.
Do you ever wonder why directors base the plot after humanity has fallen? It’s because there is no way in hell, brainless idiots could defeat the likes of organized armed forces. I for one, would like to see a zombie try and claw its way through a couple of these babies. The M1A1 Abrams.
Or try and stop a gun run by a gunner sitting in a Black Hawk Helicopter 25 metres above the air as seen here:
Let me paint a scenario for you, let’s say the infection starts in somebody, how is irrelevant. They then turn into a zombie, and then attacks somebody else, the zombie is just going for broke at this dead body. Now somebody witnesses this act and rings the police. The police arrive and approach the zombie. The zombie then attempts to attack the police. It gets to close and bam! They shoot him. Now we all know that the only way to stop a zombie is by destroying the brain. Now I’m saying that they shoot it in the head straight away, but after one shot and it doesn’t go down, they are going to continue to shoot and one of the shots would probably be aimed at the head.
Now here’s another scenario, this time the outbreak has gotten a lot worse. A lot of people in the town have been infected and turned. What’s not stopping the military from coming and quarantining the whole town? What’s not stopping the military from carpet bombing the whole town? Not a whole lot.
The fundamental flaw with zombies. They are slow. To get what they want they, have approach the victim and eat. If they do that to a human with a gun, that knows they are coming. That zombie will be long dead before it gets even close.
This is where i leave you, but i leave you with a funny. If a zombie apocalypse ever does happen, as Columbus from the movie Zombieland quietly suggested, make sure that you’re not to round. You got alot of running ahead of you.
Columbus: The first rule of Zombieland: Cardio. When the zombie outbreak first hits, the first to go, for obvious reasons… are the fatties.
Hello, in this blog post I’m going to talk about the movie Mr and Mrs Smith and why it is so good.
To start off, it has my last name in the title, so it’s already off to a great start because I’m just awesome. But off to the main points, the male main character, Brad Pitt has been in numerous good movies like Fight Club and Inglorious Bastards which automatically makes this a movie good! Also his wife, both in the movie and in real life (Angelina Jolie) is pretty attractive so that also makes this movie good. I mean come on, who doesn’t want to watch a 2 hour movie with an extremely hot actress in it. I almost forgot about a supporting character, Vince Vaughn. He has been in so many funny movies that it’s a joke! So him been in it, is just practically asking for this movie to be great. Now onto other things, this movie is an action with bits and pieces of comedy. Everybody likes action movies so there really is no point in not liking it because you would just be wrong. Also comedy, everybody likes a good laugh, why shouldn’t you? Now more specifically, there are (excuse the language) a shit tonne of guns and explosions going off all the time in this movie. And not to mention the incredible car chase roughly 3/5’s of the way in the movie, where 3 bulletproof BMW’s chase down a Minivan. I MEAN COME ON, who doesn’t like car chase scenes?! If I haven’t convinced you to go watch it already, hope is already lost and you may as well just abandon ship.
That’s it folks, Catcha’s!
