Review: Warm Bodies really surprised me. I wasn’t very fond of the trailers and previews before but I decided to be a good sport about it and go see it with my girlfriend. This movie had some style, and I really enjoyed it. It had a real good entertaining opening. The jokes were great and cheesy, but how often do you see some zombie humor? The movie really made you look at zombies in a different way. It gave zombies the depth that a lot of movies don’t offer because they are just getting killed off. Nicholas Holt and Teresa Palmer both stole the show together. It was a great take on zombies and it was great to see something different. It was a lot of fun, had good laughs and it had a good heart. Also, the soundtrack was probably my favourite part. A lot of great catchy songs that were actually pretty fitting. Warm Bodies is another strong 2013 release.
