At last the third season of the best show on earth comes to an end, and it was spectacular. The whole season was very well done and greatly improved on the first two runs. Technically I couldn’t find a fault, I’m not an expert, not even close, but special effects,  camera work, script, dialog, make up, characterization all seemed perfect. Except maybe the fact that these dudes and dames have time to go to the barber, bathe, shave and even dye the hair in the middle of the apocalypse. I find it hard to fit in my routine life and these guys always manage it. It’s the single most impressive achievement of these characters.

Great cast picture but it's hard to see the Governor smile without getting a shiver down my spine.

Great cast picture. Even here the Governor looks dangerous.

First concept art for poster looks promising!

That’s right dear readers you heard it here first! Walt Disney Studios and Marvel have just announced a partnership between Joss Whedon and George Romero to direct the Marvel Zombies movie adaptation!!! It’s coming to the big screen on Halloween’s 2015 with production beginning later this year. The film will follow the events of The Avengers 2 in an alternate story-line where a zombie outbreak occurs. They’ve also mentioned interest in developing stand alone stories for each zombie hero pending on box office results. No word so far on casting but apparently Tom Savini will be in charge of our zombie heroes makeup and there’s a chance he plays a cameo or even a main role. Zombie Tony Stark perhaps? It’s also very likely that Stan Lee will show up for a cameo.

This is reason for superhero and horror geeks all over the world to jump in excitement!

This reminds me of this fan made movie trailer back in 2008:

PS: It’s a complete coincidence that this story popped up during April 1st.

One more episode to go. The second to last episode was really something. This is what the Walking Dead is all about, good characters played by great actors and occasional zombie killing scene. The exchanges between Daryl and Merle, Merle and Michonne, Merle and Rick, Rick and the gang were all great  to watch.

The things we do for brotherly love...

The things we do for brotherly love…

The show started with Rick dead set on delivering Michonne to the Governor. He went on to recruit the bad guy known as Merle to help do it. But Merle knows Rick and so he decides to do it on his own fearing Rick would back out of it, which he did, but by the time Merle and Michonne were on their way to meet the Governor. Then Michonne just talks and talks to get Merle to turn around. Tired of hearing her he decides to go alone and try to deal with the Governor on his own.

Daryl follows them but when he gets there his brother was already munching on someone’s guts. Watching Daryl deal with his brothers death and having to kill him was a dramatic  outcome. My question is will Daryl go ballistic on Woodbury or will he fall back in rank with the prison gang? Who are having something of a political revolution by the way.

Rick realizes he isn’t fit to lead and decide for everyone anymore so they decide to go back to a democracy. Tyranny wasn’t Rick’s style. Glen and Maggie are taking the next step and tying the knot. Cutting off an engagement ring from a zombie’s finger was a nice touch from Glen.

I wonder how Andrea is doing back in the Governor’s dungeon of love…

28 SECONDS LATER

28 Seconds Later is a short made by Dza while he was working on the 28 Weeks Later set. Apparently all those props and sets lying around were the perfect inspiration for him. It’s a very short movie born out of the resourcefulness of its creator and that makes me very happy. It also serves to remind us of the great movie 28 Weeks Later was.

My fear that this series would be too much teen drama was misplaced. Since Norman is still growing his inner psychopath it’s normal to have some teen drama on screen but the pathological mother and son relationship more than makes up for it. I was pleasantly surprised with the first episode so since The Walking Dead is nearing it’s end, I’ve decided to take up the role of reviewing Bates Motel’s ten episodes as I see them.

Hi Norman, didn't realize you were there. I'm just helping this poor men.

Hi Norman, didn’t realize you were there. I’m just stabbing this guy. Love you son!

This weeks episode marked a refreshing change in the series. They’re clearly preparing for the last two episodes. We’ve got plenty of action and walkers for zombie fans but also some drama unfolding for those that enjoy the story of these soon to be dead characters. And gore fans rejoice! This episode gives us plenty of head stabbings, one excellent shovel face lift and twitching burnt zombies!

I'm still surprised this scene is part of a fiction TV show...

Rick and the Governor sit down and talk peace terms while Merle tries to rile up the prison dwellers and Glen and Maggie have sex. Nothing else happens.

You just know that guy is going to die... poor hitchhikers...

Here I am, kill me. No? Really?! You’re that stupid? It’ll be a pleasure killing you then.

Trailer: STALLED

Horror and comedy have been walking hand in hand for a long time now, one could say almost as long as they exist. In fact I’m a firm believer that slapstick comedy and dark humor are just two sides to the same coin. But here I am rambling without reason as usual.

I’ve always asked myself, what would I do if I’m stuck in a toilet stall during a zombie outbreak at a Christmas office party? I seems like I’m about to get the answer. Christian James is directing and Dan Palmer is writing, for both of them Stalled marks the first feature film so I’m curious to see what the pair can deliver. I liked the trailer and from what I can see it looks like a fun zombie trip filled with toilet humor.

Nothing wrong with that.

Episode 12 of season 3 is almost a story of its own. Woodbury, the prison and the governor’s shenanigans take the backstage as Rick, Carl and Michonne take a road trip and some time off to bond.

This week’s episode was the calm before (and after) the storm. It was a nice dramatic episode full of character development and not much horror to be spoken off. Mainly it served to set things up for what’s going to happen next.

Is that infected pus oozing from the eye?
