Comes With A Warning.

I’m just going to rant for a minute.

TV, stop showing me previews for World War Z! Ugh. Because I’m always like, ‘Oh my, what is this?!” all excited and then I realize, “Oh right, it’s Hollywood crapping all over the greatest zombie book ever written!” /screams at the sky/


Look, if they had just made a movie about a zombie apocalypse where Brad Pitt is the only one who can save us and they had named it, “World of The Dead,” or something, I would be like, “Want! Want! Want!” But instead they made a movie about a zombie apocalypse where Brad Pitt is the only one who can save us and they named it World War Z, which is not even what that book is about!

WWZ needed to be a mini-series, first of all, from someone like HBO or AMC or something. It needed to have the journalist going from location to location over the course of several years to meet his subjects and interview them. This would show us what the world has become post-zombie apocalypse - (I would have especially liked to see the city in the trees). Then once he arrives at said location, he gets into the interview, at which point it jumps back to the date in question and we get to see all the action. (Because you obviously can’t have a whole miniseries with just a guy sitting around talking to people). That’s what they should have done.

What they have screwed up here are the best things about World War Z; the humanity, the perseverance, the ordinary man finding ways to survive, the way mankind finds a way. It’s suppose to make ordinary people like you and me think we stand a chance. Because we rise up. No one man saves us. We save ourselves.

That’s what World War Z the book was. That’s what the movie should be. And it’s really pissing me off because I want to see Brad Pitt save the world from zombies! Why couldn’t they have just named the movie something else? (and also given us that WWZ mini-series, because I wants it!)

Okay, rant over.

Since we’re here, my mother really needs a journal or to learn to use her Facebook or something, because seriously, just…she needs somewhere to post jokes and talk about movies she just watched, instead of calling me three times a day for every little thing. You all know how much I dislike Facebook, so it is bad if I want her to learn to use that shit. Also, people who recognize that I have struggled for three years to stay clean and sober are allowed to make jokes to me about drug use - my sister, The BFF, any of you lovely people. But someone who keeps calling me to ask if I have any Vicadin she can borrow, are not allowed to make jokes of that nature to me.

Uh, yeah, Awesome Time of Month - it comes with a warning. Although I did pretty well watching Jim & Pam’s wedding, considering it is Day One for me. I only cried the normal amount that I do when watching Jim & Pam’s wedding, so there is that.
