“Welcome to the United States of Zombieland with a free Human Happy Meal” – Zombieland. This movie is one of the best Zombie films out there, directed by Ruben Fleischer. Starring: Columbus (Jesse Eisenberg ) the biggest nerd in the world, Tallahassee (Woody Harrelson) the biggest brute around, Wichita (Emma Stone) pretty much the sexiest woman in the film, Little Rock (Abigail Breslin) the cute little annoying sister.

Columbus is heading home to find his parents, Tallahassee is heading anywhere he can, the two sisters Wichita and Little Rock are both heading to Pacific Playland, a theme park they believe is absolutely safe, we all know it isn’t. This film has so much gore in it, so much action you’d think it was real. Also starring Bill Murray (Ghostbusters) as himself, Columbus mistakes him for a Zombie and sadly shoots him.
In order to ‘survive’ in Zombieland, Columbus makes up his own rules. They go in order by:
1, Cardio – First to go were the fatties.
2, Double Tap – Undead might not be dead, dead. Avoid becoming a human happy meal.
3, Beware of Bathrooms – Don’t let them catch you with your pants down.
4, Seatbelts – You’re going to be in for a bumpy ride.
Columbus does change rule four to “Don’t be a hero” but I don’t believe he made if official.

This film is about trust, friendship and most important of all, family. They are all soon going to realize that all they need is each other to survive in this world full of flesh eating Zombies. This film was released in 2009 and compared to 28 Days Later and 28 Weeks Later the two hit Zombie movie series along with the television show The Walking Dead; this film for its comedy and action, defeats all other Zombie related media. If you haven’t seen this film, I’d sit down and prepare to meet your doom, or as Tallahassee would say, “Nut up or shut up”.
I hope this blog encourages you to watch this film, there is so much humour in this film it’s unreal. Tallahassee is my favourite character; he loves his twinkies and he loves to find some funny way of killing Zombies.
