6th Floor Blog Goes to Zombieland

Welcome to the 6th floor.

Today’s contributors are: Ann, Sara, Frank, Billy and Scott.

Subject: Zombies Want Your Brain

Ann, Sara, Frank, Billy and Scott are walking out of the movie theater and headed home.

From Pictures

That was an awesome movie. Best zombie movie I’ve seen all year.” Frank says.

Makes me want a Twinkie.” Billy says.

From Pictures

How about a Snowball?” Ann asks.

I agree with Woody Harrelson. Don’t like the consistency of coconut.” Scott replies.

The ending in the amusement park wasn’t so good. It was so stupid that they went in there, and then on the ride.” Sara says.

I guess it might’ve been a little contrived, but it worked.” Ann says.

It was neat how they plastered the zombie rules actually into the movie as things happened. Gave it a video game feel.” Frank observes.

The narrator aspect of it left no doubt that it was meant to be comedic.” Billy comments. “That was nice.”

It wasn’t a movie where everyone was frantically trying to find a ‘safe’ area, or find a cure. It was just about life moving on really.” Sara says.

It didn’t try to raise any difficult issues like repopulating the earth, or running out of gas, or wondering what they would eat.” Ann says.

I don’t think he was trying hard enough to find the Twinkie. They’re in like every store!” Scott exclaims.

They were so stupid for letting those girls con them over and over again.” Frank observes.

Emma Stone is hot. I’d let her con me too.” Scott notes.

From Pictures

Good point.”

Hang on guys.” Billy says, entering a deli.

Where’s he going?” Sara asks.

Where do you think?” Frank says.

Twinkies, of course.” Ann says rolling her eyes. “Oh well, hope he gets enough for all of us.”

24 Reruns, X-files, and Crank

Welcome to the 6th floor.

Today’s contributors are: Ann, Tabitha, Frank, Billy and Scott.

Subject: 24 Recap, Season 1

Jack Bauer: “The following takes place between 8am and 9am on the day of the California presidential primary.”

From Pictures

I can’t believe you guys are watching old episodes of 24. Doesn’t it ruin it knowing what’s going to happen already?” Ann asks of Frank, Billy, and Scott who are sitting on the couch riveted.

Nah, it’s still good stuff.” Scott says.

Really makes Jack look stupid knowing what’s going to happen though. It seems so obvious.” Frank observes.

I doubt you thought it was obvious the first time through.” Tabitha says.

No, but in the more current seasons of 24 it’s a lot easier to suspect.” Frank says.

That’s because we know their style now. I don’t think they’d ever pull a Nina over on us again.” Billy says.

Watching it over, they all but tell us who the bad guys are, and we still didn’t get it. This is why the first seasons were the best. Pure.” Scott says.

I can’t get into shows that are always killing main characters. I think it’s depressing.” Tabitha says.

Oh, It’s the best. You can watch the show for the action and plot without getting attached to the soap opera of the character interactions season after season.” Billy says.

But I like that stuff!” Tabitha says.

They keep Jack around at least.” Frank says.

They ‘kill’ Jack at least a couple of times don’t they?” Ann asks.

Yeah, but that’s one of the ruses you always see through. They can kill whoever they want besides that, but the show would never go on without Jack.” Billy says.

Like when Mulder and Scully were off the X-Files.” Ann says.

We never did see the new X-Files movie. Someone should probably Netflix that.” Frank says.

I’ve heard nothing about it. That must mean it was completely horrible.” Ann says.

Can’t hurt to find out.” Scott says.

From Pictures

Queue’d up. I bumped it to position one in front of Crank: High Voltage.” Tabitha says.

Aww! I want Crank..” Frank says.

You saw it in the theaters. You can wait. Not like Crank 3D is out soon anyway.” Ann says.

Fine, but I’m going to make fun of X-Files constantly if it sucks that badly.” Frank says.

As we all will.” Ann says.

6th Floor Movie Review: Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince

Welcome to the 6th floor.

Today’s contributors are: Ann, Sara, Tabitha, Frank, Billy and Scott.

Subject: 6th Floor Movie Review

Scene: The lobby of the IMAX theater in Manhattan.

I think that was the best one yet.” Ann says, as Tabitha heads to the bathroom.

I really enjoyed the third one, but this was good too.” Frank comments.

That was the time travel one?” Scott asks.

Yeah, I think they did it well.” Frank replies.

The third one was almost devoid of the underlying Voldemort storyline though. It almost could’ve been a standalone movie.” Sara says.

There were plenty of inaccuracies here too. They played up the hiding of the journal, and I certainly don’t remember that in the book. I think it was just a ploy to get Harry and Ginny to kiss. Of course, they really messed with the time line for that romance too.” Billy says.

You and time lines. I agree, but at least this one was a little less clip show than the last one. They built around the overall story line of the Horcrux, and that worked well.” Tabitha says, returning from the bathroom.

The 3D was disappointing. Just twelve or so minutes at the beginning, and it wasn’t even super action stuff.” Frank pouts.

It was neat, but I’d have rather seen the scene with Dumbledore and Harry on that island getting the Horcrux in 3D.” Sara agrees.

At least something with some action.” says Scott.

The seventh one is going to be epic. I don’t know how they’ll fit it all in though.”

Actually, they’re splitting it into two movies.” Tabitha says.

Ala Kill Bill? Neat. I wonder where they’ll split it.” Billy muses.

Probably from when Harry returns to Hogwarts. But we’ll make a wager closer to November 2010 when it comes out.”

Sounds fair. Let’s do it once the preview’s out though. By the time the movie is out, it’ll probably be common knowledge where it’ split.”

That works, especially if the preview has scenes from the second part to trick us.”

Crank it Up

Welcome to the 6th floor.

Today’s contributors are: Frank, Billy and Scott.

Subject: Crank it up

That movie was insanity!”

Good insanity though. I actually didn’t realize it was a sequel when we first went in.”

From Pictures


Well, it wasn’t that important to have seen the first. I actually liked this one better.”

There’s a blockbuster between here and the apartment, what say we rent it?”

Sure, although I know how it ends.”

Well, you could know the entire sequence of the movie and it’s still entertaining to watch.”

That’s why I said sure! I like the video game feeling to it.”

There are a lot of similarities between the two plots. They take the same sort of story arc.”

Why mess with a good thing?”

I hope they make another sequel.”

It was a fun movie, but I’m not sure it has the drawing power for a third.”

You could probably make the same case for a second movie. I hadn’t even heard of it.”

There weren’t a lot of people there. Then again, it couldn’t have cost that much to make either.”

I dunno, Amy Smart and Jason Statham aren’t nobodies, they probably have to get paid.”

I just googled it on my phone. It looks like they plan a third. And in 3-D!”

Awesome!”

I’d be psyched for that.”
