Sequel to 28 Days Later.

Anyone else wanna see it?
That's the problem with heroes, really. Their only purpose in life is to thwart others. They make no plans, develop no strategies. They react instead of act. Without villains, heroes would stagnate. Without heroes, villains would be running the world. Heroes have morals. Villains have work ethic.

That depends. Was the first one any good? If so I'll try to go out and watch it and then decide about the sequel based on that.
What meaning has my life that the inevitability of death cannot destroy it?

I didn't like the first movie. I had expected it to be more than an ordinary zombie movie, but it was only a zombie movie with faster zombies.

They're not zombies, damnit. They're people with melty-brains that eat the closest living thing.

I enjoyed it, but I keep a pretty open mind in regards to films, so I don't know how valid my opinion is.

The trailer looks interesting, doubt it'll be as good as the first one though/

I liked the first one and I want to see sequel as well.
Random ramblings and furious feminine novels per versatility.

It doesn't look like they've got the same writers, this time, according to imdb. That worries me a little.

They serve the exact same dramaturgic function as zombies. To me, that makes them zombies. Plus, "people with melty-brains that eat the closest living thing" is such a hassle to say, and pwmbtetclt makes a bad abbreviation.

You have to admit, though, "pwmbtetclt" is fun to say.

It looks to have a completely different tone to the original. It *could* be good, but it also looks as if it could be shit. And now it's got Americans in it. Whoop-de-doo.

It's still nice to have films centered in the UK for once in a while though. Even if they do bomb the shit out of London with napalm...

Don't you know anything? Nothing in this world is complete without a little American in it.
