World War Z

My dad, boss, and one of my friends were the ones who recommended World War Z to me. Coming from them, I expected a lot from the movie. I also remember my brother talking about world war z years ago - maybe it was the book? Anyway, with those recommendations, it was prudent of me to watch the movie.

Hmmm, the movie was entertaining enough but fell short of my expectation - kinda like how I felt when I watched Brave and Hunter x Hunter. I was, however, intrigued into reading the book. I feel like there are allusions in the book that I will find really interesting, allusions that weren't obvious to me in the film. 

Storywise, I like it because it has a unified direction. It just lacked on emotion - I didn't care about the people "dying"; it didn't even make me heavily question any aspect of the story - probably because it's an action film? I don't know. Ironically, instead of getting grossed out and scared, I found myself laughing because of the zombies' antic, and let's not forget North Korea's strategy of removing teeth, that's 10 points for you Pyongyang.

Lastly, I think I'm also thankful that the film wasn't gory or scary because it would have haunt me in my sleep and even my bathing time. HAHAHAHA
