Saw it today....Terry spent a lot of time 'hiding'....she enjoys Zombie movies.....

It was good, we both enjoyed it.

Movies re Zombies, Vampires, and such always make me wonder....is there a book of 'rules' by which everyone MUST follow...re how to kill/avoid/beat/etc such critters?

I hear tell they don't actually exist so are the 'creation' of someone's imagination....

 

 

....but I could be wrong....

World War Z a movie based on a book from an American author. So if you want to get nit-picky........then Zee is correct. However, the director of the film is German born, so perhaps it's pronounced Sett

 

Whatever the case, there are many dialects of the English language and both Zed and Zee are acceptable pronunciations of the letter Z.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Z

I quote: "In most dialects of English, the letter's name is 'zed' /ˈzɛd/, reflecting its derivation from the Greek zeta, but in American English, its name is 'zee' /ˈz/, deriving from a late 17th century English dialectal form."

I can see 'Z' pronounciation along with 'religion' and 'politics' ...... being forbidden in the WC forums...

Sorry to hijack this thread (not really) but while finding the above, I came across this gem.

Beats the hell out of any zombie movie.

I haven't seen a movie in over 2 years at a theater. No one can come up with anything that is truly original.  The only movies I might be interested in when they come out is White House Down or The Lone Ranger.

Who can afford to see a movie in a theater these days?

Here, it's $ 9.75 for the adult ticket. $8.00 for popcorn, and $5.00 for a drink.  $32.50 for two adults with concessions.

 

We do it, occaisionally, but it is a luxury.

I'm rich so what do I care. There are almost 6 billion people in the world who have never had a clean drink of water, so what the hell are we complaining about.

Plus drinks and tips? 

And Applebee's is probably the closest to fast food of the restaurant industry.

Quoting RedneckDude,

Quoting 2of3,
20 bucks per person

Here, if you want to go to the premiere one, comfy seat, legroom and bar to go get a beer, it's $72 for two (pairs only sold online)... plus booking fee = $74

The plain old cinema seats are, for 3D movie...Adult + glasses..  $26 plus $1 booking fee... $27

non 3D is $19 + $1 booking fee = $20

 

throw a coupla kids into the mix, with food/drink and it's quite an expense...

I rarely bother anymore, got my own big screen, premiere seat, with fridge short walking distance away..  

Last two films I saw were the digitally remastered 'Lawrence of Arabia'... a must for the big screen... and a little film called "Spud", which was excellent, but I would never have been tempted to go, if John Cleese hadn't been present in person on stage after the movie, answering questions and talking about his life for about 1 1/2 hours, now that was a treat and drew a packed house...

OK....why is my thread a dissertation into the cost of popcorn and not about THE ACTUAL MOVIE ...like the Man of Steel thread?

Rather than posting 'no spoilers' I should just post 'no inverse snobbery re unaffordability' ....

I work - hard.  2 full-time jobs - keeps me awake absurd hours.

I don't have a big house.... my car turned 22 years old this year.... and big-screen movies typically NEED to be seen on a big screen [my 'big-screen' TV would classify as small these days]... so I go to movies a couple of times a year.
