Editorial - Zombies...w...what happened?

Zombies...w...what happened?

By: Enuncia

          I absolutely LOVE zombies. I don't mean, I like zombie films and lore (I do). I mean I have weapons and survival gear ready to go at a moments notice for when they inevitably rise to eat us all. I have friends responsible for different parts of our mutual survival plan that we can activate at a moments notice (if nothing else, this gives us something productive to do in-between our bouts of drinking).

          And I won't pretend that this didn't start with the reemergence of the zombie film in the early 2000's or so. I fell in love with the whole thing when I got to see the Dawn of the Dead remake (2004). From there I was hooked; I watched all the old Romero flicks, read several modern zombie books, and starting hatching the survival plan.

          But lately, something has happened to my beloved zombie films. They've had a strange evolution, from low-budget independent films, later to the exploitation flick, a brief resurgence where zombie related media was actually good, right back to shit. And I'm left sitting here going “Zombies...w...what happened?

I know I’m not alone when I say I’ve been looking forward to the release of Prometheus since Scott originally started talking about doing a project about the “space jockey” from Alien back in 2002. Hell, any return of Ridley Scott to sci-fi would have given me a nerd-boner, but a movie set in the Alien universe was everything I could have asked for. As the years past I’d hear snippets of the set backs the writers and Scott were having getting the movie green lit. I started to lose hope that even if the movie ever would get made that all of the re-writes and set backs would mean we’d get another disappointing addition to the franchise. 

Eventually Prometheus did get green lit and with pretty sizable budget. Production went by and it seemed like I was starting to see the media machine ramp up pretty quickly to get the word out. I was soaking up fake TED talks, production stills, and teasers as soon as they became available and with every new bit of media I could get my hands on. The anticipation for the film was growing and growing and I can say now that my expectations were getting pretty out of control, though at the time I don’t think I’d admit it. Prometheus launched in the UK on June 1st and so there were a number of full reviews of the film hitting the internet during the subsequent week leading up to it’s release here in the states on June 8th. I decided to read one since I still couldn’t get enough of hearing about the film. A lot of my friends were avoiding reviews because they wanted to keep themselves away from any spoilers. I can say I’m pretty happy I read the review. Not that it was a good review, but it made me realize I had allowed my expectations of the film to grow to a point that if I had gone into the theaters without reading the review I probably wouldn’t have had as good a time. So that’s what I’m hoping this review can be for people - properly set the stage and expectations so that this film gets the love it deserves. 

With that out of the way, let’s talk about Prometheus!

          I want to preface this review with some information on my attitude leading up to this film. First off; I grew up a Marvel comics kid, but like most kids I got tired of the ridiculous direction that Marvel began taking their series (Spider-man’s a clone? Fuck you...) and essentially put comics down for about 15 years or so. I was reintroduced back in to comics by a good friend who recommended I read Green Lantern: Rebirth. From there I’ve been a DC guy and nothing Marvel has done has made me think about returning to their books. Because of that I have had a sort of sweet/sour taste in mouth regarding all things Marvel. I loved what their characters were, but no longer trusted the brand.

My Drunken Foray Into the Star Wars Universe

 

            So in my recent past, some friends and I decided it would be a good idea to watch all six Star Wars films, back to back, in one day (roughly 12-13 hours of straight film).  Not only that, but we decided it would be a good idea to be playing drinking games throughout all six films.  Because 12+ straight hours of heavy drinking starting at noon is ALWAYS a good idea, and since geeking out is such a socially acceptable activity, no complaints were raised.  The following is what I vaguely recall from the experience/what I was told I experienced by my friends later

About Us

Tanked Matinee is the place to go for good drinking movies. What do we mean by that? Simply speaking, we evaluate and recommend entertainment media based on how much fun it is to watch with friends on the sofa and a cold beer in hand.

Everyone knows "The Godfather" is a great movie, but is it as great to drink with as "Roadhouse?" We can appreciate "Citizen Kane" as a masterpiece of cinema, but is it as good a centerpiece for your party as "Santa Clause Conquers the Martians?"

Tanked Matinee appreciates film as art, but when you're kicking back on Friday night with a tall Rum & Coke, you're not looking for art, man, you want to be entertained. We're here to recommend the best movies for your night in, whether it's a big party, small get-together, or just a quiet night alone with a bottle of wine or three.
