    Lets remember that zombie bodies are decomposing; that being said, depending on the degree of decomposition it is believable that an appendage could be removed with one good swipe from a sharp knife.
    **I do not know this from actual life experience; armchair education leads me to this hypothesis.**

    I have Z as in zero interest in seeing this movie, but I have a tangential question:
    Is $5 what movie tickets normally cost in the US?

    People will still pay to see zombie movies.

    The book and movie are two different things. They only share the title. A book interpretation would be awesome.

    I learned that if zombies run as fast as Olympic track and fielders we are screwed. Oh ya. And don't make noise cause they can sense your vibration and go crazy but they won't go crazy if another zombie makes noise. :D

    from your reply - i know you havent seen the movie. watch the movie and then comment, i think you'll have a different reply.
    i dont want to say a lot cause i dont want to spoil anything.



    it varies man
    it usually costs me 4.50-6 to see a movie using my student ID, but some theaters dont accept college id and charge a lot
    some theaters in NC will charge (that ive seen) as much as 11 bucks one one normal movie. Not 3D, thats usually 3-5$ more per ticket!
    college ID usually takes off 2 bucks.

    Depends on what day and what time of day. And how old you are. And whether you are a student. Or have a Military ID. Or if you want to see it in 3D

    Seriously, someone could pay between $5 and $13 at theaters near me to see this movie based on all the things I typed above. I paid $8 to see it on Sat night with no student or military discount. We didn't see it in 3D (not sure that was even an option now that I think about it). That was the adult price. Senior citizens and kids between 3 and 11 years old would have paid less.

    Whew!

    The book was very well written. Highly recommended even if you're not into zombies. The movie had nothing at all to do with the book. Aside from that, the movie sucked. They could make a very good mini-series out of the book, but there's no way anyone could make a good movie out of the book, even if they tried.

    This made me immediately think of the best zombie movie ever, "Zombieland". I'm particularly thinking of the cameo, which I will not mention for those who may not have seen it yet.

    I always felt the book would have made a better tv series, the chapters are such great self contained stories, which just happen to outline a larger story. The movie had a few nods to the book, you could see the inspiration. The thing I learned is how important it is to train your kids to actually do what they are told!

    Agreed.
    Shaun Of The Dead is a VERY close second however.

    I could happily live in a world where zombies are never mentioned again. Please move on to the next silly fad.

    Thanks to everyone who answered my question about the ticket prices. Over here movie tickets are 12-13€ for 2D movies during the usual times, i.e. in the evenings and weekends, so $5 seemed a low price. 3D ones are 15€ or ca. $20 in the "prime time", and so I've yet to see a single 3D movie. But the prices vary, so you can also get in for as low as 6,50€, if you can go see a movie in the middle of a working day (e.g. by taking a very long lunch break).

    "I Am Will Smith" was a flop compared to the book. It doesn't even stand on it's own. I think Will Smith needs to STOP MAKING MOVIES for a decade or two.

    We get our movies from the public library...for free. Why pay anything? I don't need to see anything immediately.
