Zombieland Reviewed at The Vigilant Monkey

It was delayed a few weeks due to some computer issues over at Vigilant Monkey, but here it is - my review of Zombieland.  Fun and frivolous - full of bloody popcorny laughs - but overall a little less than what one would hope for from the genre.  Perhaps movies such as 28 Days (and Weeks) Later, Shaun of the Dead, Zack Snyder's Dawn remake and (of course) the original Romero classics (and his newer work - his Land of the Dead got unfairly maligned by critics!) have raised the bar a bit higher than Zombieland can jump, but a fun ride nonetheless.  Plus, to watch Bill Murray - even for just five minutes - is worth any price of admission you would be worried about.
