    Well, the original DAWN lacked much of a budget and the FX suffer. But overall it's my favorite zombie film. The themes and undercurrent are just overwhelming.

    The original NOTLD is damned near genius. Probably the best American horror film ever made.

    Teehee. Which, Romero zombie film does have fantastic acting? If anything "Day" suffers from more overacting if anything. The only truly bad actor was the guy who played Miguel.

    Dawn has acting on par with day time soap operas and the syfy movie-of-the-week. Day is miles ahead of Dawn when it comes to acting.

    Some of the acting in Day was pretty good IMHO!

    Pilato was great IMHO!
    Look again at that dot. That's here. That's home. That's us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every "superstar," every "supreme leader," every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there--on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.

    I liked the acting for the main characters in both Dawn and Day. Some of the tertiary characters were bad.

    I thought Land had good acting pretty much across the board.

    Diary... meh, not as much. Survival was pretty horrible outside of a few exceptions.
    Just look at my face. You can tell I post at HPOTD.

    Oh c'mon Bassy, everyone knows that Daniel Dietrich's performance as Givens was certainly Academy Award winning material!

Instead of this crap thats been coming out, Day the remake, Land, an alright film that could have been so much better, and Survival, it was a joke.
    The original screenplay for DAY will never get made by Romero. It would require an excess of money for an independent film and after LAND, it's doubtful that Romero would return a big shot studio to make a film. It's a nice thought, though.

    And I haven't been around the forums for the better part of an eternity, but I'm guessing SURVIVAL probably didn't have a great reception. I personally didn't mind it. Not the best, but it beats what most of the industry pumps out these days.
    On hiatus since 2006. I lied a few years ago about being back from somewhere.

    I guess I'm back again.
