As a zombie film, “Warm Bodies” is certainly closer to “Zombieland” and “Shaun of the Dead” than it is to “Day of the Dead” or anything George Romero put into film. But it’s got one thing in abundance that very few hardcore zombie flicks have: romantic charm.
There’s lots to like in Judd Apatow’s latest directorial outing, “This is 40”, which manages to always feel very personal to Apatow himself while for the most part being accessible and enjoyable to anyone even close to 40 years old.
As a film, “Jack Reacher” reflects the aims of best-selling author Lee Child, who created the character in the mold of classic loner, knight errant types of westerns and other literary and film traditions. You’ve seen this type of hero, and this type of movie before, but when it’s done well, as is in Reacher, it doesn’t matter. it’s still enjoyable.
