I'm a little late on zombie social commentary chat but it's important to remember that 95% of the time, when there's an obvious parallel to police/military abuse in zombie media and the zombies are framed as a metaphor for minorities or just the proletariat, the movie wants you to feel bad about it, and is very very obviously not endorsing it. That 5% that thinks soldiers shooting thousands of unarmed civilians is badass does exist but they're all really bad movies.

Like almost every good zombie movie has man as the real monster, and a huge number of them have the military, the police, and people in positions of authority who can decide life and death in general turn out to be the worst of them all.

That doesn't mean you can't have a cop be the protagonist of a zombie movie without it being some weird blue lives matter ethnic cleansing fantasy.

Is there a new way to do zombie movies? No one has come at it from a new angle in a long time. I liked Fido but that was like 12 years ago. I'm trying hard to think or something interesting or original in zombie horror from the last 10 years and I can't remember anything super good. Except Savageland. Even though that movie's premise could have worked with any kind of horror movie creature.

You don't need to reinvent the wheel to make a good zombie movie. Just don't half-rear end it and be sincere. That's what Train to Busan did. Sure there's a tiny gimmick with specific rules of how the zombies work that plays into all of one scene, but for the most part it's just a zombie movie, it's just not a lovely, half assed, constantly quipping, tone deaf zombie movie. It has real characters you care about, a sense of scope, a good score, actual cinematography, a script that isn't completely stale, etc.

People who think a twist on how the infection spreads or whatever is what's gonna save zombie movies are missing the point entirely and usually end up making the most forgettable zombie media of all.

Silent Night, Deadly Night 2 is basically a double feature because 50% of the film is footage from the first movie.

Yeah one year I showed both of them and that is not really necessary. The original is a really good slasher, but if you've seen it once, just watch 2 instead because you get the highlight reel and the stupid bullshit.

It Follows, Get Out, The Vvitch, Let the Right One In, Train to Busan (foreign and has subtitles if that's a dealbreaker).

Yeah if you're into Weird World War II stuff it's awesome. If you ever played the Wolfenstein games that have a theme of horrible Nazi experimentation to create supersoldiers, this is like the exact movie of that.

I think a lot of people are frustrated because they wanted it to turn into Red Snow 2 in the third act, but instead the structure remains that of a war movie, despite the insane poo poo happening. And it's a drat good one.

A Scanners remake/reboot/sequel would need to have at least one exploding head per scene to live up to its legacy. Preferably having the very first shot be s head exploding and then exponentially increasing the number of exploding heads per scene until until it ends in a psychedelic orgy of combusting craniums.

They'd all be CG so it would be devoid of any merit.

Mummy and Returns are great. The latter being kind of bad but itís still the main cast having a blast doing the sequel. Plus the best score ever.

Dragon Emperor sucks rear end entirely. Itís not redeemable at all. And the score is the worst score ever.

The Mummy Returns is many times worse than The Mummy. It has atrocious cinematography, much worse CGI (and much more of it), and like the first half of the movie is just the first movie but sped up?

The mummy himself is wildly out of character. He shouldn't even be in the film, really, but if he's going to be in it he maybe shouldn't be a pathetic shadow of the villain he was in the first one.
