Happy Thanksgiving 2012!

It's been a tough year for me and it still is. I'm thankful for the great people around me for making things better! Do you know what else I'm thankful for? I'm also thankful for Michael Jackson! And ABC for broadcasting Spike Lee's Michael Jackson Bad 25 Documentary tonight at 9:30 ET!

Doctor Who: The Prequel to the 2012 Christmas Special: The Great Detective

Merry Christmas everyone! Well, almost. Can you believe that Christmas a month and a couple of days away? Where did all the time go? I don't want Christmas to come too fast, not yet. Even if that means I have to wait longer for a new Doctor Who episode. That's not a knock on Series 7. It hasn't disappoint me yet (hopefully it won't). I just don't want time to be slippery. I'm old, I need time to reflect on my life and such stuff. In any case, BBC has released the prequel to the Doctor Who 2012 Christmas Special: The Great Detective with an introduction by Matt Smith and Jenna-Louise Coleman (the new companion Oswin Oswald).

World War Z - Trailer

This year in New England we had a fare share of mother nature's anger: a 4.0 Earthquake, Hurricane Sandy and the recent Nor'easter. Winter hasn't even come yet! But it seems as though next year everyone will be feeling mother nature's wrath with a Zombie Tsunami. A "Z-Nami" if you will. You'll understand what I'm talking about after watching the trailer below. Actually, I'm not sure if the undead in the World War Z movie is a man-made disaster or a natural phenomenon.

I don't think I'll be watching World War Z based on the trailer. Most likely I'll watch it on video because I did have a fun time watching this awful trailer. I couldn't stop laughing. I don't mind movies veering from the original source. I don't mind fast Zombies but World War Z the movie just looks terrible.

World War Z (an extension to the Zombie Survival Guide) is based on one of my favorite books written by Mel Brooks' son, Max Brooks. The book is social commentary on how the world can be brought down by slow and dumb zombies because of political unrest, weak economic structures, stubborn pride and vapid practices. The book is not about ONE man on a mission to save the world. It actually follows a journalist who travels the world interviewing people post Zombie War. I also recommend the audio book version. World War Z's audio book features a couple of stories that's not told in the book. It also features great voice acting by: Max Brooks, Alan Alda, Henry Rollins and Mark Hamill. Mark Hamill plays a veteran of the Zombie War and does an awesome job especially in the retelling of "the Battle of Yonkers."

For the people whom had read the book. You might be wondering, "what were they thinking?" Well, here's your answer from Entertainment Weekly:

Visual effects supervisor John Nelson (Iron Man) said World War Z’s zombies lean more toward sci-fi transformation victims rather than supernatural resurrection subjects. That led to a lot of research into animal behavior, especially for creatures under the amok-time sway of predator appetite or spawning urge.

“They are like predatory animals that can’t control themselves,” Nelson said. “I worked with tigers [while shooting Gladiator], and if you watch them when a horse goes by they go batty, even if they know they can’t reach it. When Zs see humans they do same thing, they activate. They launch themselves.”

Here's the link to the Entertainment Weekly article:

Maybe these more science-rific tidal wave of zombies should go against the Sharknado. I'd go to the theaters for "that" movie!
