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 Theme||Zombies have taken over the world||Social networking has taken over the world||There's always someone with dreams of world domination.|
|Star||Jesse is shown in these pictures with two "Z"'s: Zombie and Zuckerberg. Go ahead...you can figure it out.
Jesse was also the voice of Blu in Rio...redemption!
|Sidekick||Coming soon: a Woody Harrelson vs. JT SMACKDOWN...not!|
|Star cameo||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||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 in...as 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 years||That 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|
