Day of the Dead, Starring Bub 11/09/2010

by Joe

You gotta love Bub from Day of the Dead (1985)! I got a lot of inspiration from this zombie character who I thought was more “human” than the jackass military personnel who “protected” an underground research facility during the zombie apocalypse.

Bub was a captured specimen who underwent several behavioural tests to determine whether or not zombies could be re-socialized or tamed. Bub eventually learns (or re-learns) how to turn on a cassette player, fire a gun, and he even salutes a fellow soldier (I thought that was really cool)! The concept of Bub and his master/pet relationship with his researcher, Dr. Logan, is the main thing I took away from this movie. It’s going to be a lot of fun developing characters that share a similar relationship (how’s that for foreshadowing :) ).

I absolutely hated the soldiers who were assigned to protect the researchers. I hated them as much as I hated the perverted soldiers in 28 Days Later. But, I think that characters that the audience loves to hate are needed in zombie flicks because it’s so satisfying to see them getting brutally torn up by a swarm of hungry zombies :D

SPOILER! I hate to spoil, but I LOVED the part when Bub salutes the son-of-a-bitch captain as he is being ripped apart, yelling “CHOKE ON ‘EM”! :D

I also watched The Social Network after getting a lot of recommendations about it. I liked it! No zombies/vampires/monsters, but it was good :) I thought it was going to be a rag-to-riches, follow-your-dreams kind of movie, but it wasn’t. I thought of it as more of a money-can’t-buy-love kind of movie. I don’t know if that was the intended message, but that’s what I got from it :)

Thanks to Strawberry Death Cake for mentioning us! Check it out!

Enjoy Scene 14 – “He Literally Spun”!

Please vote!

All he needs to do is learn to spin for longer.

Testing testing! I recently installed a spam filter plugin on the site. It’s telling me that it has caught 30 spam comments. I wondering if some of those are actual comments :)

I’ve turned on the plugin’s log feature, so I can view the “caught spam” from now on. If you’ve tried posting a comment from the time I posted this update to the time I posted this comment, please let me know! Sorry if I’ve lost your comment! :(

That was extremely comical.

Yes, he literally spun, and the zombies were too smart to walk into him when he did.
Those zombies does have some brain left…
– Tactic learned: If the zombies doesn’t come to you when you’re attacking, go to them.
The comic was great, as usual. :)

Joe (character) is so retarded, it gets more annoying than funny, IMO.
