You'd think when the national guard walked up, you'd tell them "oh yeah, this woman with us has necrosis from a crushed foot and is gonna die soon - little help?"

I expect that plane to crash, instead it leered off course.

I'll bet good money that the plane is the one featured in the "Zombies on a Plane" single-episode they announced.  It's supposed to take place just as the zombie plague breaks out.

He was gonna steal his dead Asian neighbor's pills.  I'm pretty sure when his sister saw that empty bottle that it was him who scarfed them down.

Funny how quickly the dad went from awesome dad to douche dad.  "You know how I feel about guns."  Yeah, that's gonna get you far in the zombie apocalypse.

Preacher picked up to series by AMC.

And people thought Walking Dead was extreme...

I guess I just have more faith in Americans.  Like it'd take a whole lot of convincing for a good portion of this country to start bashing in the skulls of anybody who looked funny.   8)

You wouldn't see exponential growth, though.  You wouldn't even see linear growth.  Not if the populace has already seen how to kill the things over YouTube, and communication systems are still largely intact.

I'm not arguing there'd be no instances of outbreaks.  Sure - someone young and healthy has a stroke in the middle of a neighborhood - some families gets wiped out.  But those kinds of stresses don't lead to societal breakdown.

Looking at my math a different way - each day right now 1 out of every 45,000 people die.  Are you saying those 44,999 other people can't handle it if that death becomes somehow contagious?  And not airborne contagious - contagious via staggering, brainless corpses?

7000 per day of 320 million?  You'd only need 1 out of every 45,000 people to be a competent zombie killer.

I just don't see how we're going to get to pandemic chaos from where they are now (short of bad writing).  We've seen the hospitals know something's going on.  That means the CDC will be involved and investigating.  Even if they don't "understand" what's happening, they'll be able to surmise pretty quickly we have venomous zombies.  In real life, controls would lock in place.  The president or the surgeon general would be on TV within a day or two saying "You know all those zombie movies?  Looks like that's what's going on.  Decapitate your dead."  And things would never get out-of-hand.  About 7,000 people die each day in the USA.  That'd be easy enough to contain.

As it stands now, there are still too many societal structures in place for it to go all apocalyptic.  There's still working communication systems...

Maybe the zombies will drop an EMP on LA.

Yeah, I agree with the general sentiment.  Druggie dude was super annoying.  The whole "he's on drugs so nobody believes him" thing was lame.  Ivy league super genius sister girl was annoying.  Step-dad was annoyingly earnest.  I'm looking forward to the lot of them dying.

That thing is super sweet.  Almost makes me wish I'd waited.

Seeing "Ant Man" tonight. This will be the first "Comic Super Hero" movie I've ever initiated being willing to pay money to go see in the theater (I probably would have with "Guardians of the Galaxy", but just waited for Blu Ray). Fingers crossed. I'm counting on all of your opinions.

So how'd you like it?

Eh - Galactus is only 30' tall.  Makes you wonder why he needs to eat so much.

Though I never really bought the official Marvel specs on his height.  He's routinely depicted with Silver Surfer in his hand, about the size of an action figure.  That'd make Galactus almost 4 times as tall.

They also changed Thor significantly from its original Marvel roots.  No crippled doctor tapping a stick.

I think the reason they keep failing with FF is because they can't nail Reed.  The Thing is easy.  Johnny Storm is very easy.  Sue is difficult to give much weight to, but a "strong woman" angle shouldn't be too difficult.  But Reed they keep screwing up badly.  He is the smartest man in the world, and he knows it.  He needs to be written as a patriarch.  A leader.  A beacon.  Instead he's written as wishy-washy and unconfident.  Awkward.  Maybe they're trying for the hero's journey kind of thing, and maybe it's origin-itis.  But I gotta think when Reed first strapped into his rocket, he was feeling like a god.  Not some dork who gets flustered around the ladies.

Also, when you cast a guy who looks like a high schooler in the role, it's difficult to accept that he has the gravitas of the smartest man in the world.

Reed should be Stark without the snark.  A living legend.  That might not jive with current sensibilities, but I think that's what you need to pull off the FF - a leader who the rest of the team respects and follows.

And of course, Doom needs to be the monarch of Latveria.  How hard is that to understand?

Ah - I don't think that's how they explained it in the movie.  But I'll roll with it.
