There is one thing about the level of which Zombie movies can never fall below. The simple fact that there are zombies in a movie INSTANTLY make it 10x much more awesome than it will ever be.

Let's take a look at a few movies that would have been MUCH better had there been Zombies in them.

Example 1:

Pearl Harbor. This movie was TERRIBLE. It sucked. A lot. I don't care who you are, this movie was a piece of shit. Let's then look at how adding zombies to this could've made it a better movie.

If say, the Japanese turned into zombies after crashing into the boats and the navy guys had to fight off Zombie Japanese. The movie would have been infinitely better. JUST because zombies were involved.

Example 2:

Daredevil. This movie was about Daredevil and Jennifer "I have a man's jaw" Garner playing some unimportant character. If there were more zombies in this movie, it would've been better. I mean we'd get to see Daredevil fight zombies instead of a guy who's just really good at throwing darts. How much better would that movie have been if there were zombies in it?

Example 3:

I didn't actually watch this movie, but from what I hear it sucked. I think if the aliens had to fight zombies, it would've been so much better.

Example 4:

I don't know if you saw this movie, but I did. It is pretty fucking terrible. I imagine that if the kid used his second wish to bring the dead back to life as zombies the movie would've been kick ass as he used his third wish for the ability to ride around on a T-rex that shot lasers from its eyes and a shirt with a swastika on it as he ran around saving the world from Zombies.

THIS SHIT BASICALLY WRITES ITSELF!

Example 5:

I don't even fucking know what this is about and I guaran-fucking-tee that it would be one and a half billion times better if it had zombies in it and people were running from them or being eaten by them.

This is truth and should be stickied.

yep, looks like my dad is a zombie. irish blood and british born, he goes through more heart, liver and kidney than a dog food factory. growing up he didn't get to eat much actual meat.

Actually, those parts are the most nutritious part of the animal, that's why you see animals in the wild going after those parts first and ignoring the "sirloin" part of the animal.

BUT... those parts also contribute toward formation of kidney stones. At least in dalmatians whose digestion of proteins (purines) is more like human/simians than other dogs.

So zombies should also drink lots of CRANBERRY JUICE!??

What..?

Liver, kidneys, heart, etc, are more nutricious than the ass cheeks.

They have more fat in them. Brains especially. Think about it. How much fat is there in muscle?

If only that was all they changed about the real historic events surrounding Pearl Harbor then it would have also been more historically accurate and more entertaining.

Sources that state they're healthier than actual meat. I know they're edible. Also regarding the toxins filtered by the liver and kidneys. Where does this come into play?
