Director Bryan Singer delivered an exciting and entertaining movie with good performances, despite the fact that no one was calling for Jack and the Beanstalk -- or really any fairy tale, for that matter -- to be made into a movie.
Once again, America has taken a look at the latest revisionist fairy tale and sighed a collective, "Why?" Jack the Giant Slayer flopped at the box-office in its opening weekend, despite a mammoth budget and attractive leads.
Warm Bodies takes a good deal of its commercial instincts from The Twilight Saga, but director Jonathan Levine instills the narrative with credible drama and lots of effective humor to make this a dark romantic fantasy suited for more than just the teen audience.
Warm Bodies genuinely adds a new idea to the zombie cannon, something that seems so simple that I'm surprised that someone didn't do it much earlier. In short, the film is told from the point of view of a zombie.
