Some Zombies and A Hedgehog

I was watching a “7 Scary Movies You Probably Haven’t Seen” video, and this movie popped up. I figured why not, and put it on. A French movie similar to the 28 movies, we follow this guy, whose name I don’t know, try and survive while hiding in an apartment building in Paris is the whole plot really. 

The Night Eats The World, A French Zombie Movie

The zombies are weird, very 28 (days and weeks later) style, but they don’t have voices. The only noises they make are from running and their teeth clacking against each other. That is such an interesting concept I haven’t seen before! I can’t really say if that makes them more scary or not, since a horde of flesh eating monsters is scary either way.

Our survivor’s name is Sam, and we follow as he tries to survive not only the dead, but also his own mind slowly falling apart as the days go by. Out of the massive amount of zombie movies I’ve watched, this protagonist has the best sense of actual survival I’ve seen in a long time. Although, his loneliness and paranoia are probably going to kill him. 
I don’t know the actor, but he does a great job freaking out and losing his mind. I’m into it. 

Some “while I’m watching the movie” Commentary For You…

OH SHIT THERE’S A CAT! Oh no, he’s going to try and save it, but there’s so many zombies my guy, don’t be dumb. I love cats but the dead don’t seem to care about him. OH MY FRICK I’M SCARED! I hope the cat is okay! Sam, you did you’re best dude, but the cat isn’t going to come to you!
Yes, I take notes while I watch movies… Don’t judge me..

Final Judgements

Time passes so well, and the story moves at such a good pace, I really enjoy this movie. We got to see a cat for a bit, and I’m super glad the cat was okay. Too many movies decide the animal needs to die. So because of that and the fact the movie was actually good, I’d totally recommend it. The final shot alone of the cityscape is just beautiful.

I Decided I Also Needed To Watch Sonic, You Know, To Calm Down

And like, that’s fine. I heard good things so why not? First impressions, SONIC IS SO CUTE! The art team did a good job with him. There’s almost too many lines though, like lines of dialog. I find the characters talk too much, considering the movie I watched prior to this, that isn’t a surprise though.

Jim Carrey is a treasure and I truly enjoy him and his personality more than I’ll ever be able to describe. Him as Dr. Robotnik was an amazing casting choice. 

I do have some questions though, such as, do speedometers actually go that high? Would that turtle have actually lived? How much of Jim Carrey’s performance was scripted? The tie to “Eggman” was brilliant. 

I Could Go On Forever, But Sonic Is

Actually just a lot of fun. I really enjoy how they made it come to life. The actors did a great job, and I hope we get the chance to see more video game movies succeed. I’m glad I sat down to watch it.

But yeah, I watched some more movies finally. I recommend these both, 100%. I know they’re two very different movies, but they’re both totally worth it! Thanks for stopping by today! Be safe out there! I’m starting to feel a lot better besides this bastard cough by the way. Lots of Love!
