DVD: Zombies and System Leftovers


Diary of the Dead starring [people I never heard of]. College film students simultaneously fight and film the zombie takeover. Zombies; a never topic of fascination and lame jokes by gun nerds.

Number 23 starring Jim Carrey and Virginia Madsen. Walter reads a beat-up novel whose protagonist mirrors Walter.

Zodiac starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Robert Downey Jr. Newsmen follow the Zodiac killer. Also starring Mark Ruffalo and Chloe Sevigny. I once heard Ruffalo referred to as a "mangina" due to all the chick movies who has acted in.

Evan Almighty starring Steve Carell and Morgan Freeman. Congressman Evan Baxter gets told by God to build an Ark.

Premonition starring Sandra Bullock. Linda Hanson has a frighteningly real premonition of her husband's car wreck death and tries to stop it from happening. Some sort of thriller.
