    I do not watch new movies much. I prefer old stuff. Even if it's considered trash!

    Just rewatched Burial Ground yesterday, as there's been a bluray release of that.

    "I worked in a factory owned by Germans, at coal pits owned by Frenchmen, and at a chemical plant owned by Belgians. There I discovered something about capitalists. They are all alike, whatever the nationality. All they wanted from me was the most work for the least money that kept me alive. So I became a Communist." - Ники́та Серге́евич Хрущёв

    That movie left so many unanswered questions, like for example: what was the corpse shown in the above picture doing inside a stone flower bed? Or: what was a bear-trap doing in an Italian villa's gardens?? Or: why didn't the humans just get into their cars and leave the cursed villa??? Or: why did the monks become zombies???? Or: why is the "profecy" (sic!) of The Black Spider misspelled ("...and there shall be NIGTHS (sic!) of Terror")?????

    I like a combination of old and new movies. Though I admit new movies today seem like garbage compared to the old ones because of the fact that a majority of them are either remakes or tired sequels drowned in obvious computer effects with no creativity.

    My zombie appreciation basically begins and ends with Romero's original trilogy, Night, Dawn, and Day, so older I suppose.There are a few others here and there that I enjoy, but even those are related to Romero in some way, like Shaun and Walking Dead.

    And not a big fan of zombie women....

    Depends on the quality, really. There's some many 'WHATEVER vs Zombies' garbage movies out there, whereby there seems to be little concern over the use of the zombies in general - it's just a sales tool and nothing more.

    If the movie's good, then it's good. "Maggie" was a pretty interesting flick, although it was overlong and a smidge too contemplative. "Warm Bodies" was a bit of fun, but ultimately throwaway and it was kinda 'Twilight with Zombies' in some ways. I really enjoyed "Zombeavers" and "Cockneys vs Zombies" - jolly good fun, both of them. I recall thinking "La Horde" was pretty decent, although a bit limited and - of course - it was raptor screaming runners yet again. "Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse" was alright, a bit of throwaway fun, but not much more (one of the actors in that was in Season 7 of TWD, btw).

    "Shaun of the Dead" is one of the best zombie movies ever made, and perhaps the best zombie movie made so far in the 21st Century. I really like "Land of the Dead", too.

    Generally the "older" ones have more charm, even if they're 'bad' ones like "Oasis of the Zombies". Even the ones that were, at the time, kind of cashing in on the trend felt a bit more 'genuine' than so many you have today.

    The best serious zombie thing of the 21st Century is, naturally, The Walking Dead ... actually, in my view it's the best thing in zombies since Day of the Dead in 1985.

    I can relate to the part about even the "bad" older zombie movies having a unique charm. Take Hell of the Living Dead aka Night of the Zombies for example. That movie was absolute garbage and yet it's one of my top 4 favorite zombie movies of all time. Director Bruno Mattei knew how to turn crappy movies into a work of art.

    That movie was hilarious, I always liked it. The funny dialogue (like the Mahatma Gandhi quote bit), the unbelievable stupidity of most of the human characters (Zantoro addressing the other characters: "You have to shoot them in the head in order to kill them. Got it?" The other characters: "Yeah, OK." Next scene they are pumping bullets all over the zombies EXCEPT THE HEAD. This vicious circle of consummate stupidity continues on and on throughout the film, much to the audience's amazement), the over-the-top unapologetic gore (like Lia's death scene), it all makes up for an entertaining piece of bizarre filmmaking. Could have used much less of that National Geographic/Audubon Society animal footage, though. Mattei was such "cheapo" director, always trying to cut corners and save money.

    Lol i completely agree and I loved the film's blunt message about how developed countries exploit the third world countries. That movie didnt sugarcoat anything.
