a long post about world war z
I don’t know anything about the original, what did they do that you’re angry about?
Snyopsis of World War Z [novel] from Wikipedia:
World War Z is a 2006 apocalyptic horror novel by Max Brooks. It is a follow-up to his 2003 book, The Zombie Survival Guide. Rather than a grand overview or narrative, World War Z is a collection of individual accounts, wherein Brooks plays the role of an agent of the United Nations Postwar Commission one decade after the story’s Zombie War. Other passages record a decade-long war against zombies, as experienced by people of various nationalities. The personal accounts also describe the religious, geo-political, and environmental changes that resulted from the Zombie War.
It’s a novel presented as a series of interviews, collected a decade after declaration of victory of the “zombie war,” that creates a narrative, through individual experience of people all over the world, from all walks of life, with all sorts of roles in the unfolding of the pandemic. It lays out the story of the disease’s origins, the cover-ups and political/corporate shenanigans that allowed it to spread, the resulting panic, and the war. It’s social science fiction, a novel that explores, rather than the survival horror theme we usually get with zombie stories, what total warfare and global pandemic would do to us as a species. The novel doesn’t shy away from real-world cultural and political issues, and presents a world where the geopolitcal landscape has been altered forever.
Synopsis of World War Z [film] from IMDB:
United Nations employee Gerry Lane traverses the world in a race against time to stop the Zombie pandemic that is toppling armies and governments, and threatening to destroy humanity itself.
It’s a film about a rugged white guy “finding the cure” and saving the entire planet from zombies.
If the reviews are to be believed, the only thing they took from the source material is the name, and they make a point to widely avoid even brushing up against any of the sensitive political buttons that made WWZ such a successful novel. Like basically they took a really compelling piece of social science fiction and tried to turn it into a family-friendly summer blockbuster
like if u want to make a brad pitt action zombie movie fine but
why do u have to pretend it’s world war z
do u think irisa’s psychic powers will help her learn what really happened in this week’s defiance
i want her to leave that shitty town and i want nolan to help her coz i dont like nolan when he’s being anything other than irisa’s terrible soldier dad
yeah idk what upset me more in that episode: Datak doing The Thing or the existence of a dude in a fedora who felt personally betrayed that his ex would rather focus on trying to build her career than trying to raise his fucking kid in a war-torn hell that, at the time, may very well have had no future
bein all “i was nervous about raising a kid on this world but I was willing to try” well guess what asshole she wasn’t, and her readiness is a little more important than yours, since i doubt you’d be giving up your career or possibly enduring giving birth in a less-than-state-of-the-art medical facility in order to “be a family”
bein all “she aborted my baby without telling me” motherfucker it’s not your baby it was some bullshit she didn’t want to happen to her she dont need u to sign her permission slip
she dodged the bullet there
too bad he didn’t
man nothing is sadder than a scared person accidentally murdering a loved one because they were tricked into thinkin they were the bad guy
i am angrier with my parents right now than i have ever been at anything
i’m almost as angry about how that last sentence makes me sound like a teenage asshole and i know everyone’s rolling their eyes at it
