Waiting on Wednesday

The only interesting news from my week is that this weekend I took my daughter to see Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. I haven't read the book so I can't comment on anything related to the plot staying true to the book or not, but the story idea has always intrigued me. I mean what's not to love - Pride and Prejudice characters plus zombies? daughter loved it! (she's 12) I enjoyed it. It's not, however, a movie I would like to own. There were some funny-ish moments, some cute guys, pretty Bennet girls, a few favorite P&P lines, and of course, zombie gore. There's not any language and no sexual content, which I'm always thankful for when taking my preteen daughter and teenage son to movies. The PG-13 rating was strictly due to the zombie gore. But really, the goriness wasn't even anywhere in the same vicinity as say The Walking Dead. Sure the zombies were gross, but when the fighters would use a sword to cut down some of them there wasn't any blood on the weapon afterward. I would imagine this element helped to keep the rating down to PG-13. It wouldn't rank it my top 5 favorite zombie flicks...but it was entertaining. As far as movies go, I would give it 3 out of 5 stars.

  1. Glad to hear P&P & Zombies was good. I want to see it, but I doubt we'll be making a trip to the theater for that one. Looks like some good books this week!
