What's in your head?

Movie: Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. Based on the book by Seth Grahame-Smith. I've never been interested in the zombie craze that has permeated popular culture the past few years. Guess I prefer my monsters with a little more substance. Vampires and werewolves have personalities, Cybermen are tying to upgrade everyone to a super robot race, Daleks are globs of pure hate but zombies have nothing besides the Eat Brains Obsession. That said, their inclusion in this Jane Austen parody/alternate history makes for entertaining viewing. Who would expect the five Bennett sisters to be proficiently trained in combat arts? Good for them, not just sitting around in an old book gathering dust and playing endless games of Whist. Nice to see Matt Smith post-Doctor and witty as ever.
