“It’s easy to recognize our own reflection, even when it has blood in its teeth.” – Keith Phipps
Last night, I watched George A. Romero’s Land of the Dead, and, y’know, I kind of liked it. I don’t think there’s any danger of it supplanting either Dawn or Day of the Dead as my favorites so far, but it has some really interesting things to say, some really decent actors to say it with, and it feels like a natural progression from those earlier films.
If I have any complaint, it’s maybe that the movie feels a little rushed near the end, sacrificing some of the interesting world-building that Romero does before that, as it marches towards its natural, flesh-eating conclusion.
Still, I’d definitely recommend it.
