Yesterday I placed an order for a copy of Dead Rising for my X360. Now I know this game came out like two years ago, I played it when it first came out. Thing is, my first X360 died a few months after I got it. Living in Fiji it was a pain to get it fixed or replaced. So I kinda just went with out it, until a few weeks back when I got a new one of a friends brother in law.
So I was going through some pics online when I came across Dead Rising, my girl friend then asked me "why don't you have this game?"
And I thought to my self "WTF...shes right, why don't I have this?"
So now I've placed my order and I should have my very own copy soon. Since this game came out a few years back, I'm not gonna saying anything about it. Except that it has a lot of zombies and it's the closest I'll get yet to a zombie apocalypse. I was happy to find that Dead Rising is now a X360 'Classic' which means I got to get it at a bargain price :D
Another thing I wanted to share with you today, was a little something about a movie called Quarantine. I was going through a few blogs and I noticed that this movie was mentioned every where.
Thing is... When I first saw the poster for Quarantine down at the local cinema, I told my friend Albie that "That looks like a zombie movie"
I went home to look it up and found that it was indeed a zombie movie and that it was a remake of a Spanish movie called REC. Since Quarantine was a few weeks away from releasing here, I decided to get my self the Spanish version... and boy was it awesome.
The moment after I saw it I had to re-write my mental list of my favorite zombie movies. REC was a gem... a sort of Blair witch meets 28Days later kindof movie that had me from the start. The movie is shot as a reality TV show, so having the Spanish actors added to the level of realism for me, since I didn't recognize any of them. The story was solid and well paced and the final scene just totally creeped me out.
I passed the movie on to my friends and they all loved it. When we found out that Quarantine was almost a shot by shot remake of the original, we decided to wait for the DVD. That's why I haven't seen it and that's why it's not here on my blog.
I'm sure it's an awesome movie, but I just can't wrap my head around the idea of remaking recent movies. I can see how the language might be a barrier for some films, but that can be easily over come with subtitles.
O well... on the other hand. I liked the Grudge, so maybe Quarantine on DVD will be an alright watch.
