The humor in Shaun was way smarter and more subtle. It was more of a true parody of the zombie genre, with specific things taken from several different classic zombie films and then mocked lovingly.

Zombieland's humor was a lot more obvious, at times, too obvious.

thats funny because I swear I was going to write that shaun's humor was more obvious. I watched it again (first time in about 5 years) last night after you posted...

what was so subtle and smart about it? Ed acting like a monkey? The group acting like zombies? Or shawn beating the shit out of people with a bat?

this needs a new thread... lol

Great film. I preferred Shaun as well but you can't go wrong with this.

Havent seen this yet but it seems like two different Zombie movies. One is a parody and the other is action with fun but may be forced humor. Cant really compare the two besides they both have zombies.

Because those three scenes were the whole movie, right?

The fact that there were scenes, little scenes, that were a direct parody of other zombie films.

The scene where they were practicing their zombie movement was brilliant. Many of Nick Frost's lines were funny in an under the radar type of way. Great delivery.

Also, much of the first half hour was some funny and observant humor. When Shaun crosses the street to the store and doesn't notice that hell has come to earth - excellent.

When they come across the other group of survivors that has a doppleganger for each of the main group members.

Shaun of the Dead also made great use of the set up, pay off, mechanic. Some of the best I've seen in recent memory.

just making a point... I really don't see the difference between british humor vs american humor. Those two scenes were very well written but only chuckle worthy imo. subtle doesn't necesarily mean better

This movie is hilarious. It was very entertaining. I'll probably pick it up on DVD whenever it comes out.

This movie was a lot of fun. Shaun of the Dead was way better, but they're different movies. I actually wish Zombieland was longer, I thought it ended too soon. The cameo near the middle of the movie was fantastic though and Woody was the probably the best part of the film.

Shaun of the deads humor was more subtle but not laugh out loud funny to me. Some of the scenes with Woody had me dying on the floor. The Bill Murray scene alone was gold.

Sure the humor is subjective, but Shaun of the Dead has dramatic impact that was void in Zombieland. It also had genuine characters that I cared about and at times, genuine tension.

Don't get me wrong, Zombieland was a lot of fun and I had a great time in the theater watching it, but it didn't offer much substance, unlike Shaun of the Dead.

I really didn't think Shaun of the dead offered any substance either. I really didn't care about any of the characters. To tell you the truth I thought Hot Fuzz was the better Simon Pegg movie of the two.

Really funny movie. It wasn't really a horror film, but it was great as an action comedy.

Looks like you fans will be getting a sequel:

quote:
Scoring the top box-office spot with $25 million, the filmmakers of the generally well-received horror comedy are already thinking about sequel possibilities. Scribe Paul Wernick told MTV News that "We would love it, and everyone involved creatively wants to do another one. [SPOILER - highlight to read]: Woody came up to us after the final cut of the last scene and gave us a hug and said, 'I've never wanted to do a sequel in the previous movies I've done until this one'."

Wernick and co-screenwriter Rhett Reese add that also keen to return are [SPOILER - highlight to read]: Jesse Eisenberg, Emma Stone, Abigail Breslin and first-time director Ruben Fleischer. The scribes originally developed the project for television back in 2005 and have been continuously been updating their work since then providing them with more than enough material for not just a sequel but several movies. They haven't started work on a script however and aren't keen to divulge any of those potential sequel plot points.


I spoilered for those who haven't seen it yet.
