Dawn of the Dead

Saw Dawn of the Dead. It's okay, better than 28 Days Later I think, and the zombie birth scene was something new (I suppose they couldn't film it tearing its way out). The original still rules, though, and I think Day of the Dead rules over that.

After seeing this and 28 Days, I think I've decided I for some reason I much prefer Romero's slow zombies to these faster-moving ones. There was something to those slower ones, something patient and inevitable, plus the unhysterical camerawork and editing lets you see Tom Savini's makeup in its full glory.
