    I checked out that movie that is based on the game franchise last night and found it to be slightly better than I was expecting. It got a lot of bad reviews so I went in thinking it couldn't be all that bad, especially since the reviews mention it stay faithful to the games which I enjoy. It was actually a little better than that so I think it's at least worth checking out. The story is surprisingly competent for a video game based movie and there is plenty of zombie-killing and gore. Maybe everyone is burnt out on zombies to give this one a fair review, but I thought it was fun. Not sure I would revisit, but I figured I'd give it a shout out.

    I actually thought this one was really good considering I'd heard it was made on a tight budget and nothing I'd seen prior about it had blown me away. I wasn't expecting much but it surprisingly had a decent story and action. I'd say it's better than most low budget zombie flicks showing up on bluray and dvd. I'd at least recommend giving it a watch :)

    I've only played the first game. It was fun but I grew bored of it pretty fast.

    I still haven't seen the first movie because I'm bored as hell of zombies thanks to the walking dead.
