New Discussion: Everything is Better with Zombies!!
I recently came across an article that put together some famous movie posters as they might be if they had zombies in them. And being the zombie fan I am I started thinking about the timeless fact that ZOMBIES MAKE EVERYTHING BETTER. One thing led to another and I thought this would make a great discussion. So here it is: What Hollywood flicks do you think would be 1,000 times better if only they had zombies in them? I though of a few (of course).
1. CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE THIRD KIND (1977). Don’t get me wrong; this is a pretty solid and entertaining flick on its own. But let’s face it, it gets pretty “talky” around the middle. Now just imagine that those smaller alien crafts accidentally unleashed a zombie plague as they were flying around the town. That could really spice things up … and I’d love to see the sculpture Roy Neary makes out of mashed potatoes!!
2. BLADE RUNNER (1982). Again; this is a killer flick on it’s own but just imagine Rick Deckard chasing around and terminating fast-moving, intelligent zombies. Of COURSE it’d be better!!
3. THE TWO JAKES (1990). Yup, you read that right. The flick starring Jack Nicholson that’s the sequel to the classic CHINATOWN. I enjoyed this movie a lot, but just imagine that in the beginning Jake Berman kills his business partner because he was a zombie. That would take this flick in a whole different, and crazy, direction. And just imagine Nicholson’s character Jake Gittes unravelling the zombie plot while he kicks some ass in the only way Nicholson knows how!!
So those are my 3 picks off the top of my head for good flicks that could be better if only they had zombies in them. So what are your choices?? Now enjoy the below posters; you can find them over at Hollywood is Dead:
