Review: Zombies… The whole Zombie genre has been done to death (lol). There are some shows that jump on the latest fad and ride it into oblivion. Other shows are quite an exception.

Take iZombie. iZombie tells the story of Liv Moore (NZ actress Rose McIver), and how at one fatal booze up on a boat turns her life upside down, from being an up and coming Med Student to working for the Seattle PD Morgue, and having an appetite for brains…

Despite the title, this show is surprisingly funny and takes the light-hearted look at life as a zombie.

I will not say too much about this series here, as that will give away too much. But, if you like horror-comedies and absolutely dig Zombies, then this is one show you do not want to miss.

Verdict: Live More 🙂

The Lovely Bones – Movie Review

The Lovely Bones – Directed by Peter Jackson.

Stars: Mark Wahlberg, Rachel Weisz, Jake Abel, Saoirse Ronan, Rose McIver, Stanley Tucci.

Tagline: The story of a life and everything that came after…

It admit it has been about a month since I watched this film, and without a doubt, this is one movie that is worth watching again.

The movie is based on the best selling book by Alice Sebold. The Lovely Bones is the story of a 14-year-old girl from suburban Pennsylvania who is murdered by her neighbor. She tells the story from Heaven, showing the lives of the people around her and how they have changed all while attempting to get someone to find her lost body. Simple enough plot. But it is more involved than that as we glimpse into the lives of other children who were sadly taken from this world by a pedophile.

Great performance by Saoirse Ronan (as Susie Salmon), as she narrates the events of her life, and the lives of others around her; And Stanley Tucci comes across brilliantly as the movie villain.

For those who like movies with a good ending, this is one to watch.
