At the Movies: Warm Bodies

Movie: Warm Bodies 
Stars: Nicholas Hoult, Teresa Palmer, Analeigh Tipton, Rob Corddry  
My Rating: 4/5

What I liked~

The actors. They all did such wonderful jobs bringing the characters to life! Hoult played R to perfection. Teresa's expressions were flawless. Analeigh did an awesome as Nora, the funny but badass friend. Last, but not least, Rob Corddry delivered some of the best lines.

The ending. Holy crap I think I like the movie ending better than the book! *hides* Seriously. The fall. The kiss. The shot! (which elicited a jump and a gasp) If I'd hated the movie, I would've still bought it for that last scene alone.

What I wished they'd included~

More of R's commentaries. The book has such great lines and while they did include some of his thoughts and dialogue lines in the movie, I felt some scenes could have benefited more from R's thoughts. Like, his inner dialogue could have easily given more depth to his struggle about comunicating with Julie and then confessing he was the one who killed her boyfriend. His inner dialogue could have also been used to explain his theory about why the zombies were turning back. There were many opportunities for his thoughts to be used. The scene would be playing and I'd be waiting for that awesome line and it never came. Most scene are just R sitting there being all sexy zombie and not delivering awesome thoughts.

What I loved~

R's eyes/ Nick Hoult's eyes. If you don't swoon over his eyes--with and without contacts--you need to check yourself and see if you're not turning into a Boney. So, yes, though there's an excess of 'silent scenes' at least I got to stare into his warm dead eyes ♥
