Re: Kung Fury

Schwarzenegger does not give me any hope for this - his presence here instantly reminded me of his glorified cameo in the absolutely abysmal Killing Gunther.

My impression of Malick is that his films are too packed with movement to be readily adapted into a more static art form like a painting. Like Altman, he's one of those filmmakers where I can't...

Eh, I think Zombieland is one of those zombie movies where the infection only gets spread through bites and since he wasn't bitten before dying I don't think he's coming back.
