aim of the dead

why do none of the soldiers in day of the dead know how to aim? i don't think i saw even one of them aiming their weapon properly- in the scene from picrel you even see he's only hitting the zombies in the torso. why is this? don't these soldiers know to shoot for the head? the SWAT officers from dawn of the dead had actual aim, so why not these guys?

        They know how to aim, but can they do it under pressure while their hearts are racing? Their CO could have used all that down time holed up underground to do counter-ambush drills so they'd be prepared, but instead he just let their minds rot from boredom.

      i get that, sure, but there was such an insurmountable number of zeds in that facility that they'd have died, good aim or not... so why did they have to go out of their way to make them look like such embarrassments???

        It’s part of romeros takes on things. It’s what really limited his writing.

        He could have been a israelite for how much he writes white men to be moronic and black dudes to be cool and calm. Women always start off naive and almost child like but by the end of the movies they are fairly confident and brave.

          The best Zombie movie hands down is Return of the Living Dead, where the zombies, and not some hamfisted israeli metaphor about society, are a legitimate threat.

          Other great Zombie movies unburdened by the homosexual "conventions" that were never really the conventions until gen Xers who watched only the most normie horror movies "decided" what constituted a "real" zombie:
          Deadalive/Braindead
          Reanimator (whole series)
          Anything Italian with Zombies fricking teleporting and disguising themselves and punching holes straight through people

          Romerogays need not apply

          This is where we are at in the idpol culture war. moronic zoomers chimping over nomninally liberal subtext real or
          imagined of films made in the fricking Carter admin and suggesting that Giallo flicks are "based and redpilled" (they're based but what your suggesting is beyond idiotic)

          Do you even know who made Return or Why?

          Seriousily you gays are the reason we can't have nice things. I've seen you morons chimp over George Carlin or Calvin & Hobbes or in this case a black quadagonist being portrayed too competently in a movie made 50 years ago

          Unironic mental illness this year zero shit wrt culture has to fricking stop.

            also what the frick. If your seeing that kind of subtext in Dawn but not Return which was made by a literal israelite who had a fiancial dispute with Romero and is a glorification of left wing punk culture complete with Robert Crumb style sexplotation elements I don't know what to tell you.

            This is like saying that Jurassic Park is pro troony because the dinosaurs change gender. I already know what your response is going to be too because you take a linear myopic purity spiraling zero sum view of history instead of simply viewing things as a product of their time made when such things might have some rationality to them in response to the then current zeitgeist.

            I'm not doing this with you gays anymore. I've dealt with it with moronic left wing millenials I'm not doing it with some ideologically possessed /misc/gay zoomer. This nightmare isn't going to end until both of you are marginalized out of the public discourse

              Unrelated but I've always suspected that Dario Argento was more fricked up than anyone ever realized and the true reason why Asia Argento found herself the locus of the Me Too movement and was blackballed for what she did with that one minor but that's more of an /x/ topic.

              Suspiria is a great and beautiful film but it might as well have been made by Ken Anger

              The OG Dead Trilogy could only have been made by an old school white rust belt person though. There's a certain candor to it you won't find in either Hollywood or indie films.

            I'm assuming it's because Stephen is a cuck, Roger has a PTSD chimpout and Peter is a badass who don't need no man. I have no doubt in my mind that Romero was a anti war anti establishment leftist. (Savini casually uses racial slurs in interviews though) but the person your responding to has been primed to react a certain way to stimulus like a monkey.

            Yeah you could argue that there are liberal notes in Dawn and Day (the later of Reagan era militarism) but they are tenuous and ancillary at best and are overshadowed by the general apolitical nihilism/existentialist themes and frankly there is nothing wrong with those aspects in the context of when those films were made. As much as I hate modern SJW's you'd have to be a major homosexual to be okay with the status quo at the time.

            Their entire arguement is that X leads to Y even if X isn't bad or even reasonable and that we need a year zero type purge of culture that only Z can provide even if it's just as bad if not worse than Y. It's neurotic bullshit and completely non functional wrt actual day to day life or art

    George Romero was the equivalent of a shit-lib who hated "country folk" and "military type white dudes" as a result of vietnam etc. yet paradoxically portrays these people as the only surviors, the *sane* ones, and the only people semi-capable of rational reason

    anyway, he always portrays the military as "airmen™" in all his films

    Zombie movies all rely on the military being weirdly ineffective in order for the threat to be real. Shaun of the dead is the only one which portrayed it realistically, the danger ends like 30 seconds after they show up. Its honestly better that they just make the military moronic, because when they try to justify their ineffectiveness in other ways like WWZ making the zombies immune to artillery but not bullets, its just insulting.

      WWZ did the worst of both worlds and had both arbitrary immunities for the zombies and then made the military moronic anyway for good measure.

      It’s part of romeros takes on things. It’s what really limited his writing.

      He could have been a israelite for how much he writes white men to be moronic and black dudes to be cool and calm. Women always start off naive and almost child like but by the end of the movies they are fairly confident and brave.

      IIRC he didn't actually intend Night of the Living Dead to be social commentary, it actually was a case of colorblindness with the black actor simply being the best fit for the role. Of course he certainly didn't miss the praise he got for it and filled his subsequent movies with it.

      wienerneys vs Zombies had a fairly similar thing going on with its military too.

      >when the military finally strikes back in the end, it is via the large-scale deployment of helicopter gunships to presumably thin the ranks (the movie ends with the military showing up and the protagonists boarding a boat to sail down the Thames) rather than sending infantry first to get mauled

      I get it in the remake, the fast zombies are a pretty terrifying threat to face in urban areas, but in the OG film even the biker gang is easily dealing with the zombies in the mall with melee weapons.

      it's weird how the one guy just has a G3 for some reason.

      I've always wondered though. How many of those underground facilities like the one in Day actually exist in America/Canada? I know some WERE actually part of Continuity Of Government in the event of WW3 and the whole thing about shelters in Malls isn't that far off from what was actually built into some of them and I'm not talking about fallout shelters. I'm assuming all are mothballed or decomissioned but you never know.

      How common was that knowledge? I seem to remember Romero originally scripting the military feeding the zombies livestock in Dawn but that was cut out.

    It's not a zombie movie but they should remake The Blob. I literally awoke today having a dream about a remake of it. It had modern effects and you could see the blob growing large enough to traverse entire counties via news choppers towards the end and begining to imitate a psuedo human form from all the people it absorbed. I one part of
    my dream the blob enters into a giant terminal/lobby and presses the trapped people against the giant glass window panes to the horror of onlookers. Maybe I should be a film director

    They should remake Phantoms too. That could work if the right person got their hands on it.

    So WHAT would be a good kind of zombie that would actually give the military a run for their money without it being blatantly overpowered? I imagine zombies with an unsatiable hunger for flesh and human-level intelligence would be pretty scary to go against, especially if they work together. Kinda like Return of the Living Dead.

      classic zombies but a long incubation period and a government/society that is too malaised/incompetent to address it properly slowly allowing the problem to fester years or even decades before the problem hits critical mass not due to zombies but panic and loss of federal cohesion with people splitting into smaller and smaller groups

      In the og dead trilogy it takes years to get to the point of Day Of The Dead and even then there were clearly COG protocols in place. Dawn takes place months after Night most zombie movies have things fall apart instantly

      It would be interesting to see a zombie movie where bites weren't instantly fatal or that actually handled secondary/primary infection in a realistic manner.

      I don't know why no zombie films play into Germaphobia
