I’d never read the hit zombie book, World War Z. I did, however, go see the Brad Pitt -starring movie, and was underwhelmed.
My friend Scott who went with me, who’d read the book, informed me that the movie had little to do with the book, which was odd, since the movie wasn’t terribly well-written or weighty, so it probably could have used cribbing some of the book.
This faux trailer is spot on and quite funny. Even if you haven’t seen the movie, you’ll appreciate the humor (or spot-on criticism). This movie, in particular, made me question who actually writes Hollywood films and HOW they are written. Meaning, do script writers realize how bad there scripts are, or does someone else get a hold of it and destroy it?
I had the same question about The Hobbit, a truly abysmal film (also not terribly based on a rather good book), which surprised me after they did such a good job on The Lord of the Rings.
