Zombie [1979]

aka Zombi 2 / Flesh Eaters

         

This Italian affair (marketed as the sequel to Dawn of the Dead but having nothing to do with it) takes place on an island with zombies. With cheesy dialogue, the film comes off as very lame and hokey. Exerting a very large portion of exploitation, the spec fx, graphics and make-up were far more gory than realistic making them simply gross rather then effective (although the eyeball scene was pretty impressive) and included a generous helping of boobs. Apparently most find this entertaining but it's not for me. Maybe too many zombie movies ...I'm jaded.

Zappa [2020]


         
  
Simply put, this is the best biographical documentary of Frank Zappa, the greatest composer and one of the greatest guitar players of the 20th century, that has ever been made and probably ever will be made. The only thing I can think of to improve it is to double its 2 hour length with 2 hours of performance clips to highlight specific points in his career. Well, hey. I'll do that. I actually re-edit my own videos for my own personal entertainment and I definitely want to see a 4 hour version of this. Time to get to work.

Check out this incredible performance of one of the most difficult and beautiful tunes ever composed by Zappa, Black Page, performed live by Dweezil Zappa, Terry Bozzio & Steve Vai.

Z [2019]


      

Brandon Christensen's 2nd feature film for Shudder is about an 8-year-old boy's imaginary friend named Z ...and he has plans. Like Brandon's 1st film, Still/Born, it's more a psychological thriller than horror with the emphasis on what's it's doing to the people around the horrific events rather than the events themselves. Although there is a couple of scenes that were so completely out-of-the-blue shocking they made me gasp, it's a creepy slow burn whose effectiveness will mostly depend on the viewer's taste. Still, very well made and not bad.

Zeitgeist [2007]

WARNING: Trailer has scenes that may be disturbing.

         
     
A documentary discussing aspects of religion, 9/11, financial institutions and political control. This is not a film I would simply suggest everyone seeing. This is a film that everyone absolutely MUST see! I've always been mistrustful of the system, the government, the media, although it's difficult to pinpoint why in particular. I've just always known something is wrong with it. This movie filled in a lot of those blanks with information - whether you buy it or not - that provides a huge feast for thought. You really must see this.

Zombeavers [2014]


         

Industrial waste turns beavers into zombie monsters who then proceed to terrorize a lake community. The simple premise of zombie beavers tells you this is intended to be campy, fun, farcical and not to be taken seriously. Unfortunately, unlike good campy features, like Sharknado or Slither, this one fails miserably by delving deeply into sex and toilet humor, sophomoric behavior, and making all it's characters as unlikable as possible. It got better but some good moments in the last 20 min does not a good movie make.

Zeitgeist: Addendum [2008]


         
  
Like the first film, everyone should see this. This film focuses on the fact that the world cannot survive on a monetary-based system, that we have the ability to give a high quality of life to everyone on the planet and we really need to consider changing our focus to a resource and technology based system. After all, throughout time, humans have not progressed because of money, politicians, or religion but rather we have progressed through technology and we have the ability to make it available to everyone. So, why don't we?

Zeitgeist: Moving Forward [2011]


         
     
Zeitgeist showed us the truth behind the failing system of politics, religion, and money. Addendum gave us a detailed examination of how the monetary system works and why it's no longer viable. This film offers us practical, logical and sustainable solutions to turn the earth into a paradise for every human being. It thoroughly explains why the market-monetary economy is collapsing and, if we don't change to a resource based economy, we're doomed. You owe it to yourself, your family and the future of the earth to watch this series.
