I love how this entire comic is essentially "How can I draw out the idea that I dislike this movie into three panels." And that the punchline was just..."I dislike this movie."

I can tell he spared no mental expense to come up with that comic.
#18 to #7 - trivdiego ONLINE (10/07/2013) [-]
the way its set up makes me think its at least partly based off a real life experience. then again, penny arcade has never really been a haha funny type of comic

It's not just about 'lol movie sux'. Everyone, as a kid, had that moment when your mom went out and your dad watched her leave in the window before putting on something wholly inappropriate (by inappropriate I mean a scary movie or a racy comedy) for you and him to watch. This is taking that experience and adding a new twist to it, because the movie sucks balls and the dad gets fed up with it.

Is world war z really bad? i've been meaning to watch it but i didn't know it wasnt well recieved
#9 to #1 - anon (10/07/2013) [-]
it was a decent movie (I watched it before I finished the book tho) but there's a TON of **** that comes within an inch of killing everyone. And imo it got kind of repetitive.
User avatar #19 to #1 - divinedpk (10/07/2013) [-]
its not terrible but i like brad pitt so i enjoyed it even though it wasnt his best movie.

and this might just be me but i feel like there should have been alot more of the main people dead.
User avatar #24 to #1 - zafara (10/07/2013) [-]
Well, if you read the book, then don't watch the movie. But if you find it bad, just think of it like a 28 Days later prequel. Because that's exactly what the movie was like, only a more global perspective of it.

The opening sequence was fine. Rest of the film didn't seem to really have a direction. The core story changed more than once and not in so much a plot twist kind of way more a "we have no idea where we're going with this". If I had to sum it up in one line I'd call it a 2 hour trailer for the sequel.
User avatar #12 to #6 - BadManTaliban (10/07/2013) [-]
nailed it. i struggled all of the times i wanted to describe it but that was perfect.
User avatar #2 to #1 - tmgrskat (10/07/2013) [-]
It describes the panic during the first encounter with the zombies really well.
Well, after that...
...a guy slips, falls and shoots himself.
#3 to #2 - licestr (10/07/2013) [-]
that seems really hard to even do on purpose, i dont know how someone can achive that on accident

He was warned to keep his finger off the trigger whilst running down wet metal.
After he tripped, his hand kinda jerked/recoiled from pain, pulling the trigger.

Also, he was one of those people who are extremely intelligent, but lack common sense.
User avatar #4 to #3 - tmgrskat (10/07/2013) [-]
Worth a watch, I'm not too much of a movie guy, but it kept me watching.

enough for me for a review, ill give it a llok when i get time, thanks
User avatar #20 - xxhadesflamesxx (10/07/2013) [-]
book was so much better but if you look at it without comparing it its ok not good but ok
User avatar #21 to #20 - zafara (10/07/2013) [-]
Yeah, I know right? The producers admitted that they wanted to do it like the book, but then they got bored. Seriously, directors claiming they got bored with attempting to make the movie like the book. Which implies that they did write an actual script that was just like the book.

But I guess some people wouldn't like it if it was like the book, if interviews aren't their thing. But it really worked for the book, and could have worked for the movie if they were creative enough.

And the zombies were ridiculous anyway. The movie of World War Z played out like the prologue of 28 Days Later, with the fast and super strong zombies, fast infection rate, and everything else. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if both movies took place in the same universe. I mean, the survivors in 28 Days/Weeks later didn't know what was happening anywhere, and only focused on them. Sure, the zombies were slow in the book, but that made it more suspenseful on whether or not someone could get away, especially if they were injured or it was dark.

in my opinion 28 days later was one of the only good zombie movies... didnt make me get all upset over the dumbness of the people!
User avatar #36 to #29 - zafara (10/07/2013) [-]
Yeah, and there was a ton of emotion in it as well. Like the man who abandoned his wife and boated away, only to find out she survived.
#38 to #36 - kanedam ONLINE (10/07/2013) [-]
that movie was ******** ! made me just as angry as world war z... (you mean 28 weeks later, the sequel...)
I hate those movies in wich people act in a way you think "no goddamn fool would act that way!"
it was like: oh, a virus erased almost a complete country? the virus made humans into fast, aggressive, dangerous zombies? lets put half a dozen sniper on some roofs... should be enough if anything happens!
or: oh, we have a very dangerous contagious virus? and this person has it but doesnt mutate into a killing machine? sure... lets let her stay alone in a room with no real safety measures and if someone enters there... we dont need no control person to check if the docs coming in and out or some visitors are infected... just let it be aaaaalll alone!

i just hate that...
User avatar #39 to #38 - zafara (10/07/2013) [-]
Well, the man was her husband, so maybe they somehow assumed that he was immune as well for some reason. Or maybe they were planning on having him have sex with her so they could bear another child who was immune She wasn't even immune, just resistant . lol nope, kissing infects people.

The half dozen snipers might work if the zombies were slow though, and if they had enough ammo.

But people would act that stupidly, if they were in panic mode.
#40 to #39 - kanedam ONLINE (10/08/2013) [-]
they weren't in panic mode. everything settled down and they tried to repopulate that country. the small troup in the first movie was better prepared with landmines and automatic machine guns... also some soldiers.

no irresponsible fool would try to get a base safed with just a few snipers... every normal person would use more (and military would even go further). i mean: the whole country got almost erased! and they dont think there should be some more guards? automatic machine guns, artillery, landmines (just as a few examples), bigger numbers of soldiers and such.

and i just took your first part as a joke... i mean, even with normal diseases the concept of quarantine are known. and i dont really think someone would lessen these rules for a deadly virus that makes killers out of humans.

i dont want to ruin the movie for you... those thoughts just ruined it for me and i was expecting quite a bit of it because the first was so good...
User avatar #41 to #40 - zafara (10/08/2013) [-]
Oh, then I'm very sorry.
User avatar #32 to #29 - Zeigh (10/07/2013) [-]
28 days later and shaun of the dead are the only good zombie flicks.
User avatar #37 to #32 - zafara (10/07/2013) [-]
And World War Z proves that.
#33 to #32 - kanedam ONLINE (10/07/2013) [-]
zombieland or how it was called was good too in my opinion...
User avatar #34 to #33 - Zeigh (10/07/2013) [-]
meh, boring, longer than it should have been and forced jokes, except for what'sisface and his twinkies.
User avatar #8 - ireallylikepotatoe ONLINE (10/07/2013) [-]
I enjoyed that movie.
User avatar #11 to #8 - BadManTaliban (10/07/2013) [-]
it was eh. i dont get why people say they hated it but it still wasnt even in my top 10 zombie movies.
User avatar #13 to #11 - paiwithapple (10/07/2013) [-]
well, except the fact it was quite different from the book it was okay. But, How could they have a live feed of the amount of people left alive?
User avatar #14 to #13 - BadManTaliban (10/07/2013) [-]
i didnt even look at it as an adaptation of the book which is why i wa more able to accept it. it would've been sweeter if they had made it more of an adaptation and had brad pitt's story be part of it. only cut out like...the second half of it.
User avatar #15 to #14 - paiwithapple (10/07/2013) [-]
yeah, but when the zombies in the book took roughly a day to resurrect, while they took like, 10 seconds in the movie, it doesn't really fit. the scene on the plane for example, when that one zombie infects the whole plane, wouldn't have worked if not for the short resurrecting time.
User avatar #42 to #15 - BadManTaliban (10/08/2013) [-]
that's true but even in an adaptation, its hard to stick to everything and still make it a compelling film. having such a slow infection rate would just...suck. movie wise at least.
User avatar #22 to #15 - zafara (10/07/2013) [-]
What if World War Z takes place in the same world as 28 Days/Weeks Later? The zombies in WWZ are so like 28 D/W that it might as well be the prequel or prologue.
User avatar #25 to #22 - paiwithapple (10/07/2013) [-]
that might be true, but then why use a name for a book if you aren't even doing it in the same universe.
User avatar #26 to #25 - zafara (10/07/2013) [-]
For the same reason why they made Dragonball Evolution. It's popular, and they can cash in on it. The producers knew a movie called World War Z movie would attract the fans of the book. Although, they did actually read the book, they just got bored while writing the script to be just like the book, so scraped it.

But doesn't it look a lot like 28 Days Later? It actually could be in the same universe. Remember, in 28 Days later, the survivors had very little knowledge as to what was happening elsewhere. They just know zombies are everywhere and England is quarantined, which is what WWZ did with smaller islands. So for all we know they do take place in the same universe.
#30 to #26 - kanedam ONLINE (10/07/2013) [-]
in 28 days later it happened only in england (for as much as we know)
so it wouldnt fit
User avatar #27 to #26 - paiwithapple (10/07/2013) [-]
in theory. but i doubt the movie creators ever thought of that. its in many ways a bad movie, but done a good way.
User avatar #28 to #27 - zafara (10/07/2013) [-]
Yeah, that's what I'm saying. They got bored with slow, weak zombies, and just decided to make them faster and stronger. And it just came out like 28 Days/Weeks later.
User avatar #17 to #8 - dartharc (10/07/2013) [-]
Me too.
User avatar #35 - silentgascloud (10/07/2013) [-]
i liked World War Z though. Some parts might have felt rushed and generic but you would do well to find a new film that isn't.
#31 - kanedam ONLINE (10/07/2013) [-]
in my humble opinion: that movie sucked!

there were a lot of things i didnt like (and i didnt know there was a book to it until right now in the comics)
1) the **** with the sick people was soooo clear right from the moment on you saw that bald sick person or the old person in the middle of the group running... i mean come on! wouldnt they somehow have had to realise that all over the planet the ******* hospitals werent in such bad condition as almost all patients were left alone and only the staff attacked? no! ************* brad pitt has to realise that **** ...
2) ******* isreal built such a big wall, helicopters are flying, thousands of people enter the city... no other ******* gov realised that?! yeah sure! and what about the rest? no damn cam? no security personal? why were soldiers in the middle of the city but not a single one on the walls! no shooting devices, nothing! as i you'd simply stop looking outside once you got a damn wall...
