I was disappointed that some of the gore was CGI, that was a real let down, I love real fake blood

[quote="davidltamarin"] I was disappointed that some of the gore was CGI, that was a real let down, I love real fake blood [/quote]

but that was the only thing I didnt like about it, its an amazing movie. Dawn of the Dead (the original of course) will always be my favorite, but Day of the Dead should have been allowed a bigger budget, Romero didnt really make the film he wanted to, theres one film that acutallly could use a remake, to make it on a bigger scale like ROmero intended it. I would only see this remake if Romero himself did it

as always there is a political/social commentary or parody that is very subversive throughout this film, in that way this one kept up with the first three in being a comment on society as well as a gore fest.

its a fascinsting concept SPOLIER that after disaster strikes society become more stratified and hierarchical, with some people even benefitting from the disaster (financially).
maybe its a comment on Cheney financially benefitting from the Iraqi war with his corporation Halburton. I thought that was a subtext of the film
