I just like terrible films, OK?

We just watched 'World War Z'. Pp felt that it was 'pretty poor'.

It had:
Zombies
Explosions
That moment from 'Father Ted' where Father Ted makes a phonecall to Father Larry Duff, precipitating disaster
Zombies in Jerusalem
The world's toughest small boy.
Zombies Onna Plane
A heroic chihuahua
Fatal diseases that don't give you the runs
Stomach wounds that don't stop you running about
An impromptu amputation
The potential to be viewed as a part of Torchwood canon

Admittedly, it did also have a large number of Characters With Common Sense Failure, which always annoys me in an apocalypse but otherwise, I am struggling to see what's not to like here.

So much thunder rolling today, and it's heavy and airless and hot, for all the flower-scents.  A break in the weather would be welcome.

That phone thing must happen so often in real life, though not with zombies...

I love World War Z. Especially the way it all comes down to Brad Pitt and one zombie in a room (instead of the inevitable bigger-and-better battle).

'Don't Let A Mobile Phone Ruin Your Chances of Surviving the Apocalypse' ...?

Yes, it's sort of nice that it starts off with giant sweeping movie-style explosions, and climaxes with Doctor Who-style running along corridors. In Cardiff. :-D
