why is it the only good remakes in the past five or six years are of romero flicks from the 70s?

i dont think there was a missed note in this. i enjoyed it. the acting was good. the characters were likable. not gags were good. the ending wasnt a copout. i didnt feel like it insulted my intelligence....

I loved this movie. The movie with both scary (now I can mark scary Car Wash scene off my list of things that I thought I'd never see) and thought provoking. I also love the ending of the flick, where the Government is going to do the same thing all over again.

I think this remake was good because it has a story that can be juxtaposed into any time frame and still work. The basic paranoia of a disease getting out of control and the distrust in our own government is a theme that is just as strong today as it was back in the 70's when the original was released.

Also having great actors and a well written script doesn't hurt as well.

I don't really know how I felt about the movie, exactly, but I know I didn't hate it. I am a big fan of Timothy Olyphant. Will have to re-watch sometime. Loved the car wash scene, especially the "EVERYTHING IS F**KING MOVING." quote. =P

I think it should be mandatory for them, but here they usually have the largest families in town.

Finally got around to seeing it. Pretty basic stuff, mostly what I expected, though there were enough memorable scenes and a couple twists that made it a bit better than your typical fare.

The subplot with the depute turning into a crazy didn't end how I expected it to, as it was building up to him COMPLETELY turning on them and them having to put him down. When it didn't do that, the movie gained major points

My only gripe was the nuclear explosion survival. I'm sorry, but no... they would not have survived that.

That's the only thing I could think about when that scene happened. I think it only made me dislike it even more.

Finally saw the original version of this film (after having seen the remake in theaters and enjoying it as a kind of fun but-not-to-taken-seriously movie); and damn the original is good. Not all that different than other Romero zombie flicks, but I kind of liked that it started small town and went global, instead of starting global and eventually focusing in on a small community like Dawn of the Dead.
