The shouting men whats your

The shouting men

whats your beef with 28 Days Later? All anybodys doing is picking apart the flaws. If the flaws dont ruin the movie, whats wrong with it? It had mood, a the shouting men story, and was great the minor details arent capable of destroying the enjoyment of the film, why did they ruin this one? Sending all the wrong mental images to all the right minds. Jack, I see the problem. The problem isnt with the film, it is with classifications and preconceptions. You went expecting a what-if movie, I went expecting a horror movie. When asked to name horror/splatter movies you enjoyed you talk about scary movies some great choices there, btw that I would never classify has horror/splatter despite the fact that some of them are indeed horrifying and some of them have a lot of splattering going on in them. 28 days later surpassed entirely the expectations I had of it. I understand that it didnt live up to the expectations you had, but I dont think that makes it a terrible film. Iteki, I think you have it right. I was expecting something different than a slasher movie. I had the impression it would be a bit more heady. Elvis, I think you miss my point about the flaws. I dont expect a movie to be perfect. Thats why Id admit the movies I mentioned probably have a few. However, I do expect the flaws to be kept to some reasonable level and not interfere with the magic of the experience. Wierd Al did a great job pointing out the fact that this film was overwhelmed by them. In this case the mistakes ruined the movie for me. Iteki, I think you have it right.

Yeah, I also noticed the shouting men movies were all a different genre than 28 Days Later. With the exception of The Omen and The Exorcist, theyre all suspense movies that are more likely to happen. I mean, how far of a stretch is The Silence of the Lambs from real life? There are very famous cases of someone kidnapping, murdering, and skinning people to make outfits out of their skin. Not much of a stretch for the imagination to accept when the storys based on historical fact and not science fiction. So, think more about there any slasher type horror films, or even action/romance films that you like that are just completely out there? The Matrix, Dr. Strangelove, Amelie, anything like that? As for your other statement, this is where the problems with all debates come because its all a matter of opinion. What you see as mistakes, I see as tid bits that didnt need to be explained, because to do so would bog the story down with grituitous information and detatch from the story. I already talked a lot about how I dont view the lack of corpses and such a mistake because it was done intentionally to help set up the mood, and the effect of that kept me on the edge of my seat. I didnt need Jim to wake up to the end of Resident Evil.
