Zombieland by Ruben Fleischer

Top of the month November 2009: Zombieland

This place is so dead.

Why should you go see Zombieland by Ruben Fleischer, right now?

– Because of the opening title sequence shot in slow motion, playing Metallica’s « For Whom the Bell Tolls » out loud.
– Because of the survival rules (and their reasons) and the hunt for the last Twinkies on Earth.
– Because of the best cameo appearance ever!

Runners up :A l’origine by Xavier Giannoli and The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus by Terry Gilliam.
(not to mention Rapt by Lucas Belvaux, The Box by Richard ‘Donnie Darko’ Kelly and The Private Lives of Pippa Lee by Rebecca Miller)

Up by Pixar

Spirit of Adventure with Carl Fredricksen!

Why should you go see Up by Pete Docter and Bob Peterson, right now?

– Because of the talking dogs, the funny bird and – SQUIRREL!!
– Because of the short « Partly Cloudy », craftsmen Pixar at its best.
– Because of the first ten minutes featuring a dialogue-free sequence of Carl and Ellie’s life.   Heartbreaking :°]
