Zombie Movies

So these few days, I have been craving for a good zombie movie. And my preferences would be of course, the zombie element (either to really slow moving ones or the fast running, that's ok with me), no element of surprises (sudden jumps: I'm wearing a headphone), a good plot (not too lengthy and please stop where it suppose to stop), and gore is a must. Let's start.

Resident Evil (animation and movie)
- Resident Evil is my first zombie movie that brought me to the world of zombies. Well, Resident Evil being famous from the game and Milla Jovovich's epicness in the movie, it is a zombie horror movie that everyone is well aware of. I have no complains on the animation where it features from the games. However, the movies are too lengthy to bear. It started wonderfully with the virus infecting the research lab and the Umbrella Corporation office. A little element of surprise here and there but still bearable. A little confusing in the beginning but well, I watched for the zombies. This is the first movie where people doesn't understand the concept of a living dead or a zombie.
- The second movie is when the infected spread to Raccoon City. As usual, government and the corporation tried to cover things up. The second movie is still okay for me. Not much comment here. Nemesis was rocking a nice coat there. *thumbs up!*
- The third movie is when it spreads to the world. Everything turns into a desert. I mean why a desert? Why does zombie movies have to run out of water and not rain for a few days and everything just turned into a desert? (I did not play the game so if there is an explanation for it, please do forgive me.) Well, I accept that water can spread the virus but still, no rain? Let's move on.
- The fourth and fifth movie. I combine this 2 because in my most honest opinion as a big fan of Resident Evil the movie, these 2 are unnecessary (a nice way to say it). I understand trying to show the infection conditions of how the infected spread from lab to city to the world but please just stop there. Just stop. After all these, the sudden people taking in the virus in hope to be a superhuman like Alice? More evolution of super evolved zombie that he can still control his brain? That just killed the element of a zombie, mindless man-eating, slow/fast moving thing that feast on every part of your body. Please no more 6th movie. I wonder what else could you come out with in the 6th.
Slight gore in this movies. Well, mostly out of headshots.

Shaun of the Dead.
- Probably one of the best comedy zombie horror movie that I love watching. It started out very, very smoothly. There is not much to be criticize about. This movie starts off with the daily life of Shaun and the people around him. Not surprisingly, our daily life are so boring, we are practically mindless zombies ourselves. It was a wonderful show to watch. No sudden surprises. If there is, it usually is covered by comedy. I would recommend this to anyone who loves zombie horror (my friend recommended it to me first).
Slight gore in this one. I think there is only a few parts which are different from the normal headshots.

And I guess that is all from me. This is my first time reviewing so please do excuse my short review. I tried not to insert any spoilers. Anyway, I am watching 28 days later and 28 weeks later, night of the living dead, dawn of the dead and land of the dead (expecting high from these 3). Will be reviewing more after I am done!

Thought of this poem while half asleep.

The wind brought more adventures today.
The high mountains clouded with white snow,
Fields of green covered in purple and pink,
The soil so brown, and the mud so wet,
Forest green with drops of the morning dew.

The wind brought more adventures today.
The stench of mountain clouded with waste,
Fields of green slowly turning to black,
The soil covered in tar, and the mud turning dry,
Forest grey that stood so high and bright.

All from the whiff of the daily wind.

Not sure if it's good. But it's the best I have ever did.

Giving up.

I am at the verge of giving up. I really really hope this is all the fault of the excessive hormones in my body. My patience is at the limit. Everything I do is only trying to please you, I almost forgot myself. I am turning into some stranger that I don't even know.
I keep trying to remind myself of how good you are and your good points to cover the pain but how long must that last? How long will it take till I get tired of this? How long more will my patience last? How long should I lie to myself?
This is probably hormones speaking but I guess, sometimes, I can't help it. Or maybe I just don't understand you. Or maybe everything is just me and my fault.

I Died

I dreamt that I died. A very vivid dream. I remember dying one day and no one can see or hear me. I am not allowed to move on until I have done all the things that I should be doing. The only way for people to see me is when they can hear me. At first, screaming at the top of my lungs, no one responded, until my mum. She was the first one who could see me. I cant remember the details after that. I remember it was all in a mall. I did manage to move on, then I woke up.
Could say it is a creepy dream, yet sad.

Dream interpretation:
Death - To dream that you die in your dream, symbolizes inner changes, transformation, self-discovery and positive development that is happening within you or your life. You are undergoing a transitional phase and are becoming more enlightened or spiritual. Although such a dream may bring about feelings of fear and anxiety, it is no cause for alarm as it is often considered a positive symbol.  Dreams of experiencing your own death usually means that big changes are ahead for you. You are moving on to new beginnings and leaving the past behind. These changes does not necessarily imply a negative turn of events. Metaphorically, dying can be seen as an end or a termination to your old ways and habits. So, dying does not always mean a physical death, but an ending of something.
