Will there be any acknowlegement of the success of the war on terror that lets you protesters have the freedom to protest said war without any cost to yourselves?

Frankly you'd all make more credible victims if a suicide bomber joined the protest.

I can't tell which one is better. The zombies are faster in the new one, but the whole first half hour is loads of fun.

I'm going to see it this afternoon. First I'm gonna watch a bunch of Living Dead flicks to get jazzed for it. That ten minute preview on USA Monday night sold me.

Do they show a lot of people-eating, or do they kind of shy away from that?

His technique is different than Romero's, and there's no savini to speak of. George would tend to "numb you out" to set you up for a bigger shocker (like the endless shooting through the first 2/3rds of the film before you get to the "real" gore, which then is even more intense.

If you liked the original, you'll like this, it cranks decently post apocalypse, and you'll love the first half hour.

Yeah, it was pretty cranking. The constant howling and hissing of the thousands-strong dead made the hair on the back of my neck stand up. LOVED Andy, the gun store owner. Definitely buying the DVD.
