Sharing my love of Melbourne with Melburnians and guests of this great city!

With more "good" than a zombie "eeerrr"
Warm Bodies
Warm Bodies


Just when you thought it was safe to go out without being attacked or sparkled on by a vampire book/film/cardboard cut out or Twi-hard, zombies have made a come back with a vengeance. But before you dismiss the latest supernatural offering, it might be be worth your while checking out this take on a (usually) morbid topic.

Set in post-apocalyptic city, "R" spends his days wandering around in a zombie state in an airport, only having to outrun some uber dark zombies called Boneys. Upon feeling particularly hungry one day, R and some of his zombie friends decide to venture into the city for some "food." There he meets Julie, who he ends up saving - and then takes her back to the zombie invested airport. R is not your usual kind of zombie, and despite his fondness for brains and limited capacity for words, he and Julie start to fall in love. As their relationship becomes stronger, R and some of the other zombies also begin to become more human.

Bringing new life to Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, Warm Bodies boasts an excellent selection of actors such as Nicholas Hoult (now all grown up from being that sad little kid in About A Boy), Adelaide grown Teresa Palmer and old favourite John Malkovich. A great movie for date night - with a little bit of gore, romance, comedy and an ending that is a nice change from the usual doom and gloom found in most zombie movies.
