Warm Bodies: 

After R (a highly unusual zombie) saves Julie from an attack, the two form a relationship that sets in motion a sequence of events that might transform the entire lifeless world."

Eh. I think I spent most of the film thinking how much better Teresa Palmer would have been for Bella in The Twilight Saga than Kristen Stewart (VERY VERY similar looking).

But back to the movie. It was cute-ish. My husband hated it. But I thought it was sort-of unique. Bits reminded me of other movies (the Bonies for example, remind me of the vampires in I Am Legend). I read after it was loosely based on Romeo and Juliet, and I could sort of see that. Has great music in it though! Huge plus!

This was actually J's pick at Redbox last night. I didn't really like it, but we did watch all of it downstairs in our cooler basement in our unair-conditioned house.

I haven't watched any of the Twilight series, but I thought at times that the actress in Warm Bodies looked like Natalie Portman with blond hair.

I thought the zombies didn't really seem too zombified, even at the start of the movie. After seeing World War Z last week, I would say I'd rather watch that than Warm Bodies if I was really interested in the zombie genre.
