:: Warm Bodies

Nicholas Hoult is R, a young man facing the existential crisis that comes with being a zombie. Grunting his way through a post-apocalyptic America with the mindless hunger of the undead, R has no memories, but he has dreams and his inner life is full of wonder and longing for the time that must have gone before.

When the memories in one of his victim's brains affect him, he finds himself attracted to, rescuing, befriending and eventually falling in love with the dead boy's still living-girlfriend. Julie (Teresa Palmer) is a blast of colour in the dreary and grey landscape that is the “life” of the un-living. Their tense, awkward and strangely sweet relationship develops into something that will not only transform R, but his fellow zombies and possibly their entire lifeless world.

Warm Bodies is rather funny, charming and entertaining when it's not trying too hard to make its point. While by no means a horror film, its new spin on some very familiar zombie tropes makes for a rather enjoyable time regardless of its shortcomings.
