Warm Bodies is now on DVD and Blu ray for your viewing pleasure as of June 4th, 2013! The screenplay was written and directed by Jonathan Levine, who is also known for his work on the movie 50/50. Warm Bodies is originally a novel written by Isaac Marion. If you haven't seen this film I HIGHLY suggest you pick it up! It's worth the watch!
If you know me at all, you'd know I'm absolutely terrified of zombies. I can barely watch Scooby Doo On Zombie Island! But one night I was feeling brave, so I decided to give Warm Bodies a shot and couldn't believe what was happening. I was laughing! I was laughing my ass off actually... and fan girling a little over the two main characters. I wasn't scared at all!
Warm Bodies stars Nicholas Hoult as R and Teresa Palmer as Julie Grigio. Supporting actors include Dave Franco, Analeigh Tipton, Rob Corddry and John Malkovich. So just in case you aren't fond of zombie love stories, there are definitely some beautiful faces to look at for 97 minutes!
Well, except these guys... (They call these Boneys)
Not only are the actors pretty, but the film is witty as hell! Since zombies can't exactly speak, Nicholas Hoult (or R for that matter) delivers a well put together and sickeningly clever narration of his inner most thoughts and feelings throughout the story. The moment the movie begins, they lay the satire on thick. Just how I like it!
The main plot of the film is R finds himself asking if there is something more than just shuffling along in "life" and eating brains. He comes across a living girl, Julie, who strikes him and decides to save her and keep her safe from his fellow zombies. Julie begins to help R remember how much he loved being alive.
The rest of the movie is spent trying to return Julie home safely while being chased by Boneys and convince the rest of the living that the dead might actually be changing. Much to the Boneys dismay, R and Julie have started something infectious.
The chemistry between Hoult and Palmer is undeniable. They really bring the story to life. I have to give the two of them credit; Teresa, for being able to act so well along side a co-star that barely has any lines and Nicholas, for acting so well even by saying so little!
The storyline is not only enjoyable because it's funny, but because there's something real about it all. R is yearning for something more inside his tomb of a body. Haven't we all been there? He's different and goes against his nature to find himself once again and just happens to find friendship and love along the way.
On top of everything, the music is simply perfect! The soundtrack includes artists such as M83, Bon Iver, Delta Spirit and more! Give it a listen.
So take my advice and pop Warm Bodies into the DVD player, sit back and snack on some popcorn... or brains. Your choice!
