Warm Bodies

A funny twist on a classic love story, Warm Bodies is a tale about the power of human connection. After a zombie epidemic, R (a highly unusual zombie) encounters Julie (a human survivor), and rescues her from a zombie attack. Julie sees that R is different from the other zombies, and as the two form a special relationship in their struggle for survival, R becomes increasingly more human – setting off an exciting, romantic, and often comical chain of events that begins to transform the other zombies and maybe even the whole lifeless world

Val is released from prison after serving twenty-eight years for refusing to give up one of his close criminal associates. His best friend Doc is there to pick him up, and the two soon re-team with another old pal, Hirsch. Their bond is as strong as ever, and the three reflect on freedom lost and gained, loyalties ebbed and flowed, and days of glory gone by. And despite their age, their capacity for mayhem is still very much alive and well - bullets fly as they make a hilariously valiant effort to compensate for the decades of crime, drugs and sex they've missed. But one of the friends is keeping a dangerous secret- he's been put in an impossible quandary by a former mob boss, and his time to find an acceptable alternative is running out. As the sun rises on the guys' legendary reunion, their position becomes more and more desperate and they finally confront their past once and for all.

  1. Wow, Sharon, I want to go see Warm Bodies, sometime this weekend. It is sure to become a classic. I don't know why but I'm crushin' hard on Nicholas Hoult. Maybe it's those blue eyes. I can't wait to watch him in Jack the Giant Slayer in March, too. Why do I get the feeling that you would so be the gal pal to have in a zombie post-apocalyptic world. LOL

  3. Warm Bodies, Stand Up Guys and Beautiful Creatures are on the top of my want to see list. Of course, I'll have to see the Die Hard film just so I can say I've seen them all as well. :) Oh maybe even Identity Thief. I like Melissa McCarthy. :D

    Now to pop some popcorn... :D

  4. This is Pam.

    Am not seeing Spiders (not in 2-D and definitely not 3-D!). I hate spiders and cannot believe I wrote this creepy spider horror story I wrote either. Am not a spider fan, can you tell?

    Warm Bodies makes me laugh at every trailer and a gamer buddy of my son told him he has read the books and loves them. Reading Beautiful Creatures on my Kindle now. But not sure see it over the zombie one--may end up on Blu Ray for me.

    1. Beautiful Creatures doesn't appeal to me at all. I want to see WB and the Sly movie :)

  5. Really? A new Die Hard movie with Bruce Willis? I have to see that one. I hope it gets here in Holland on Valentines Day as well ... perfect to take my boyfriend with me.
