The Social Network vs. Zombieland SMACKDOWN

With the Facebook IPO consternation, coupled with news of certain Zombie-like events in the U.S., it is time for a SMACKDOWN of two movies that are bursting with mysterious parallels.

Movie ThemeZombies have taken over the worldSocial networking has taken over the worldThere's always someone with dreams of world domination.
Jesse Eisenberg
Jesse Eisenberg
Jesse is shown in these pictures with two "Z"'s: Zombie and Zuckerberg. Go can figure it out.

Jesse was also the voice of Blu in Rio...redemption!
Woody Harrelson
Justin Timberlake
Coming soon: a Woody Harrelson vs. JT SMACKDOWN...not!
Star cameo
Bill Murray
Annabelle Amirav
Murray's Zombie disguise was classic, as was the line about GARFIELD.

Ms. Amirav is a star in her native Israel with a small part in this movie, but, dressed almost like a zombie, her public service announcement on Domestic Abuse is powerful and moving.
Quote that should be from the other movie"Without friends, you might as well be a zombie.""Hey man, sorry. A couple of girls are freshening up in there."Can't pay for marketing like that!
Superhero connection
Emma Stone (Wichita in Zombieland) is Gwen Stacy in The Amazing Spider Man
Andrews Garfield (Eduardo Saverin in The Social Network) is Peter Parker in The Amazing Spider Man
Though not a fan of reboots (which usually means (a)need more money or (b)it stunk the first time), I'm a fan of anything Ms. Stone is long as she's carrying a shotgun.

Gwen Stacy with a shotgun...yum!
Best Facebook IPO Quote"Time to nut up or shut up!"“They’re suing me because for the first time in their lives, the world didn’t work the way it was supposed to for them.”'nuff said.
Least likely to occur in a million yearsThat a geek like Columbus (Eisenberg) would be lucky enough to get a babe like Wichita (Stone) as his last girl on Earth.That a geek like Zuckerberg (Eisenberg) would be lucky enough to get a company like Facebook to IPO
