Two Cents:

So if you ever wondered what a Romeo and Juliet inspired zombie movie would be like, then I suggest you take in a viewing of Warm Bodies. It’s a simple tender tale of love conquering all, but done with a nice refreshing twist on the zombie movie genre. It’s true it doesn’t fully explore that brilliant premise, and the incessant voice over dialog can get a little irritating. The film though redeems itself with some witty dialog and strong performances. Especially from Nicholas Hoult as R.

Movie Prep:

This is not your traditional zombie movie film so if you’re looking for a lot of gore,  and brain consumption, you’ll be disappointed with this. At its heart it is a love story between two people from opposing worlds. Thankfully it only uses the Romeo and Juliet tale for inspiration, and not to guide the plot.

Best viewing format:

If it were still in theaters I’d say a matinee if you couldn’t wait to watch it at home. A nice HD viewing at home would be great.

Best element for me:

Nicholas Hoult’s performance was pitch perfect in this film.
