ZOMBIE SERIES – THE WALKING DEAD, SEASON 2, EPISODE 13, Beside the Dying Fire

Beside the Dying Fire is the Season 2 season finale and opens with a feasting horde getting distracted by the noise of a helicopter above them.

Hello Copter

Unfortunately for Team Rick, the copter appears to be drawing the ever growing horde towards Hershel’s farm, and a few fences aren’t going to stop them.

Zombies Vs Fences – Zombies Win

Even worse, the next shot is of the horde pivoting when they hear the gunshot that kills Shane, and we then see Rick and Carl walking back to the farm as the horde approaches in the dark.

Carl & Rick Walking Back To The Farm

When we come back from the break Daryl and Glen have just come back into the house and everyone is worried. Shane and Rick haven’t come back yet, and no one appears to even realize that Carl’s not in the house – because Lori’s such a great mom? Come on people, keep track of your kids in the Apocalypse.

It’s not long before everyone realizes what is about to hit them. Rick and Carl hear the horde behind them, and when Daryl comes out onto the front porch he can see what’s bearing down on them in the distance.

The Horde Approaches

Rick and Carl don’t have an easy path to the house, the horde is too large and is between them and safety. Just as Rick and Carl reach the barn, Lori realizes that Carl’s not in the main house with her.

Carl and Rick light the barn on fire to stage an escape while Daryl leads the others on a car ride to try and lead the horde away from the house. The setting the barn on fire strategy seems really questionable as Rick and Carl only escape the 2nd floor because the RV shows up (and the driver gets eaten in the process).

It doesn’t take long for the majority of the survivors to realize they need to flee, even as Hershel is wasting shotgun shells, trying to hold off a horde he could never defeat.

Hershel Wasting Ammunition

People are dying as the survivors are overwhelmed by the horde.

Hershel would have been bitten as well, but Rick is there to save him and force Hershel to realize the farm is lost. The Zombie horde is just too big. Everyone flees, stranding Andrea and Carol. Thankfully Daryll is there to save Carol after he hears her screams.

The farm is lost.

As the sun rises, Glen and Maggie are alone in a vehicle and Glen tells Maggie that he loves her as she breaks down, not knowing if her father and sister are still alive.

The survivors are all split up and dealing with the shock of losing the farm as they slowly regroup right back where everything started, on the highway where they lost Sophia.

As the now much smaller Team Rick drives off we cut over to Andrea, fleeing through the woods, pursued by Zombies as she runs through the trees.

Team Rick is forced to pull over so they can try and organize a resupply mission. As they are planning, Rick is forced to tell the other survivors that they all carry the virus. If you die, you turn. Rick then tells Lori that he was forced to kill Shane after Shane lured him out in the woods to ambush him. Lori, being Lori, reacts with anger, instead of compassion. It has to suck when your husband kills your baby daddy right?

Back in the woods, Andrea is out of ammo and exhausted, and is about to get bit after getting pulled to the ground when we are introduced to another epic character – Michonne.

Michonne

Team Rick is sitting by their fire when they hear something moving in the dark. People are panicking, afraid and unsure, which leads to Rick losing his cool, raging at the other survivors that he killed his best friend to protect them all, so get off his back.

After Rick is finished bringing the survivors back to reality, the camera slowly pans away until we see the Prison in the distance.

The Prison

Beside the Dying Fire was not just the Season 2 finale, but was also an amazingly powerful episode with tons of action, as well as giving us a taste of what is to come in Season 3 to keep us hooked. Beside the Dying Fire scores a 100/100, and is Worth Your Time.

ZOMBIE SERIES – THE WALKING DEAD, SEASON 2, EPISODE 7, Pretty Much Dead Already

Pretty Much Dead Already opens with tension. Rick and Lori are dealing with the fallout of her unable to keep her legs closed for Shane, while Glen keeps looking over at Maggie who is standing on the porch. He’s decided he doesn’t have a choice, to keep the secret any longer, and drops the bomb on Team Rick that the barn is full of walkers.

The Barn Is Full of Walkers

The barn full of walker ignites the group. Shane wants to leave while Rick and Daryl want to stay and find Sophia.

With the secret out Glen begs Maggie to talk, but she just breaks an egg over his head, not ready to make nice. While Maggie is taking her anger out on Glen, Daryl is stubbornly trying to go back out, wounded, to search for Sophia. When Carol stops him, he loses it.

As everyone is dealing with their sh*t, Rick goes to talk to Hershel.

Rick Tells Hershel They Found The Barn

Rick wants to talk about the barn, Hershel just tells Rick he wants his group to move on by the end of the week. Rick tells Hershel that forcing them to leave would mean putting everyone at risk, including his pregnant wife. Hershel doesn’t want to hear it.

A little later Hershel tells Maggie that he gave Rick the order to leave, and Maggie uses his faith to show him what the bible would have said. Hershel struggles with what Maggie is saying but he gets pulled away when he’s told “its happened again”.

Hershel bring Rick with him to the creek. The bottom of the stream is soft and silty, and walkers get stuck there. Maggie must have an impact on Hershel, even though they didn’t really finish their conversation. Hershel asks Rick if he can stop killing the walkers.

Zombie Capture

Rick asks Hershel what they are going to do when the Barn gets full but Hershel doesn’t answer as they wrangle the two Zombies away from the stream.

Back at the farm Glen confronts Maggie, telling her he never wants to see her in danger again, and the words made Maggie realize he does really care about her – and smooching commenced.

While Maggie and Glen are making up, Dale and Shane are having it out. Shane wants the guns that Dale is trying to stash, and it almost comes to blows.

Shane is pissed, and that anger overflows onto rick and Hershel when he sees them coming back with the two restrained Zombies. This leads to Shane screaming about how a sick person couldn’t take multiple gunshot wounds to the chest – before he finally puts the walker down with a headshot.

It’s still not enough for Shane though, and he lets loose the barn zombies in a fit of rage, which leads to one of the iconic moments of The Walking Dead universe. After the team puts down the other zombies, the last walker out the gate is revealed. The team has found Sophia.

The Team Finds Sophia

Pretty Much Dead Already is one of those episodes that you will remember for years to come. I still remember this episode when it was on the air the first time. I remember sitting on the couch with my older boys, and we all gasped when we saw Sophia. Pretty Much Dead Already scores a 100/100. It is a master class in suspense and character development.

ZOMBIE SERIES – THE WALKING DEAD, SEASON 1, EPISODE 2, Guts

Guts opens up on Lori and Shane’s survivor group and we get introduced to characters we saw but didn’t really hear much from in Days Gone Bye. The first of which is Dale, who is dutifully watching over the camp from his perch on top of the RV. We know he’s a good guy because Lori trusts him to watch over Carl while Lori goes into the woods to scavenge for edible plants. 

Dale On Watch

Lori is in the woods when she hears movement and nearly pees herself when Shane grabs her and pulls her to the ground where they quickly get down to business. Shane pauses when he sees her wedding ring on a necklace and they don’t continue until she takes it off.

We then cut back to the tank where Rick is swarmed with walkers.

Swarmed

Glenn informs Rick he’s in trouble, but at least he’s go Glenn’s eyes outside helping him find the path of least resistance. On top of that Rick finds a grenade near the dead crew member. Glenn pushes Rick to run for it while the walkers are distracted with their horse dinner.

Rick makes it down the street and almost pops Glenn before his new friend leads him to the safety of a fire escape where Glenn gets to tell Rick what a dumbass he is again. As they flee across the roof Rick asks Glenn why he helped, and I love Glenn’s answer.

Rick: “Back at the tank, why’d you stick your neck out for me?”

Glenn: “Call it foolish, naïve hope that if I’m ever that far up shit creek, somebody might do the same for me. Guess I’m an even bigger dumbass than you.”

The exchange just shows Glenn’s nature, he’s a realist, but a glass half full type of guy at the same time.

As Glenn and Rick flee down into the building Glenn radios out that he’s got a guest. Several people come out to bash some walkers as Glenn leads Rick into the relative safety of his friend’s company. At least of Andrea puts a gun in his face, pissed that Rick pulled down walkers all around them.

Andrea Says Hi To Rick

Andrea is convinced that Rick has killed them by making so much noise. The other survivors explain to Rick that they are there to scavenge, and the key to scavenging is getting in, grabbing items they need, and getting out without making too much noise. Rick’s gunfire has pulled down the walkers all around them, and the glass isn’t going to hold for long.

Breaking Glass

The survivors ask Rick what he was doing out there, and me mentions the helicopter he heard and saw in the buildings reflection, but they thinks he’s nuts. As they decide to flee upward they hear gunshots and Andrea askes “Oh no, is that Dixon?”

Merle Dixon Having Some Target Practice

When the survivors get to the roof Merle is laughing. T-Dog is missed that Merle is wasting bullets, and bringing more walkers down on them when Merle shows his true nature. Merle isn’t a fan of diversity and isn’t willing to take feedback, much less orders from T-Dog.

I was a little shocked to hear Merle use the hard “N” word, its been a decade since I originally watched Guts during its original airing and I didn’t remember that. This of course leads to a fist fight and Merle takes down Rick, then gets T-Dog on the ground and is pummeling him until Merle goes on a power ramble. Merle votes Merle is in charge, and its honestly the only vote Merle cares about, although he does force the others to raise their hands by casually sweeping them with his pistol.

Thankfully Rick is there to even things up and he bashes Merle in the back of the head before handcuffing the Dumb-As-Sh*t, Inbred White Trash Fool before reminding Merle you “Ought to be polite to a man with a gun.” Which is exactly what Merle told the rest of them when they started to complain about him shooting his rifle.

As the others discuss their next steps, Merle hits on Andrea. Even handcuffed Merle is just a disgusting human being with no self control.

Merle’s Weak Attempt At A Pick Up Line

Rick asks them if the sewers are an option which leads Glenn to show them what he thinks is the sewer entrance in the basement.

The team has a plan. Glenn and Morales are going to see if the sewers are a viable exit while the rest of the team monitors the store front and tries to reach out for help using the radio from the roof. Glenn and Morales find their way blocked by a massive steel grate, which already has walkers eating rats on the other side. Yum…

In the store Andrea is looking at a necklace and Rick asks her if she sees something she likes and we learn that Andrea has a sister, who is still young enough to love things like unicorns, and especially mermaids.

Andrea’s Mermaid Pendant For Her Sister

When Rick asks her why she doesn’t take it, she replies that there is a cop staring at her before Rick assures her its okay. This is what TWD does so well, shows the humanity in each of its characters.

Glenn and Morales come back up and let them know the storm drain isn’t an option just in time for the glass in the storefront to break some more. Time is running out.

As the team discusses their options Rick comes up with a crazy plan. The walkers hunt by sound, sight, and smell, and Rick wants to know if masking one of those senses might change how the walkers react to them.

They grab one of the dead walkers outside the rear door and proceed to memorialize him before hacking him up, but at least the guy was an organ donor so did sign up for this right? The team then uses a bit of emulsified walker to coat themselves.

As Glenn is complaining, Rick tells him to think about something else, like Puppies and Kittens!!!

Puppies And Kittens

I had no idea that Z Nation borrowed this from TWD! I had to go back to check. Guts first aired on November 7th, 2010 while Z Nation’s Puppies and Kittens episode didn’t air until four years later.

Rick did achieve his goal though. He and Glenn smell like walkers. The last thing Rick does before walking out into the horde is to throw T-Dog the key to Mer’s cuffs.

Rick and Glenn carefully make it through the walker horde, their disguises appearing to hold up, at least for the moment

Walker Walking

Back at the survivors camp, Andrea’s sister, Amy is worried. T-Dog just manages to get a message through as the weather changes. T-Dog lets them know they are surrounded at the department store, but the connection is poor. Amy wants people to go into Atlanta to safe her sister, but Shane say’s they can’t risk mores lives while Lori looks on, wide eyed.

Rick and Glenn are in the thick of the walkers when the rain starts to fall, washing away the precious walker gore they’ve covered themselves in.

Walker Walking In The Rain

Rick tries to comfort Glenn, but even as he’s saying their protective layer isn’t washing off, the walkers are beginning to focus on the two live humans more and more.

It’s time to run and Rick and Glenn just make it to the construction site before the horde turns on them. Thanks to the construction fencing they are able to grab a box truck and start rolling before the horde is on top of them.

As Andrea, T-Dog and Morales watch from the top of the department store they are at first afraid Rick and Glenn are abandoning them, but Rick just needed to find another vehicle so they could create a distraction. Glenn calls them on the radio and tells them to come down to the rolling gates and be ready to roll.

As they move out Merle begs T-Dog not to just leave him there and in the process of trying to do the right thing T-Dog trips and the handcuff key goes flying.

Key Down The Drain

I tried to highlight that little key flying towards the drain, and that is exactly where it went. T-Dog does the only thing he thinks will help and locks the door to the roof, so at least the horde won’t be able to eat Merle while he’s trapped.

Out on the street Glenn uses his stolen Dodge Charger (with its alarm blaring) to pull the horde away from the side entrance, giving Rick the time he needs to collect the other survivors just in time.

T-Dog tells the others he dropped the key as they flee Atlanta.

Guts ends with Glenn flying down the highway, intoxicated with speed as the car alarm continues to go off.

Glenn Speeding Away

Guts scored a 100/100, making the first time a season opener and second episode both just hit it out of the park. I forgot how awesome these original episodes were. Guts is Worth Your Time.

ZOMBIE MOVIES – #Alive (2020)

The first zombie movie I watched today was just so bad I had to find something better to get my fix. My brother recommended a South Korean film named #Alive.

#Alive is a zombie action, psychological thriller about a young man who is isolated in his apartment building after the zombie apocalypse starts.

As he deals with isolation and listening to his family die he finally breaks and goes on a golf club wielding rampage. At least until he panics and finds himself surrounded. It turns out leaving your shelter because you’re pissed isn’t such a good idea.

The movie overall is really well done. The special effects are top notch, and the zombie action is awesome. There are a bunch of well done scenes with zombie swarms, and the main character, Oh Joon-woo, played by Ah-In Yoo does an amazing job acting out the fear and gradual decline into anxiety fueled crazy that any one of us would fall into.

That decline took Oh to the edge, and he would have fallen over if another survivor wasn’t there to give him hope. This was one of my favorite parts of the movie. Watching Oh prepare and scavenge was just really well done.

The zombie horde scene between the two apartment blocks is one of the best I’ve seen.

If you like Zombie Movies, this is a must watch, as it scored a perfect 100/100.

ZOMBIE MOVIES – Dawn of the Dead (1978)

I was a little kid the first time I watched Dawn of the Dead. My older brother thought it would “toughen me up” as he puts it. Yes, he’s got that old school way of thinking when it comes to kids.

Back when I couldn’t really appreciate how well done Dawn of the Dead was, I was too busy trying not to scream. It really is the archetype of zombie movies, and everyone who works on zombie related media should be forced to watch this. Literally, forced to watch this. Hold their eyes open until they memorize the pattern.

The zombie apocalypse starts and rages through humanity. The group struggles to survive, and are smart about how they go about trying to live just a little bit longer.

Dawn of the Dead earned itself a 100/100 on so many levels. If you haven’t watched it recently, put it on your short list, you won’t regret it.

My one bit of advice is to just watch the old cut. I watched the old, some new, and some modified to make them 3D. In my opinion the gold old standard definition cut holds up the best. This movie isn’t about gimmicks or CGI, and the old school cut shows off the movie the best as far as I am concerned.

ZOMBIE MOVIES – Night of the Living Dead (1968)

Night of the Living Dead is the movie that started it all. We all owe George A. Romero our thanks. He started what become a billion dollar industry with less than $120,000 dollar investment in Night of the Living Dead.

Its been several years, actually decades, since I watched Night of the Living Dead, and I was actually surprised how well it holds up to the years. The action starts quickly with Barbra, played by the lovely Judith O’Dea, visiting a cemetery being attacked by one of the dead. Her brother quickly falls to the first zombie, while Barbra flees. A short car crash later and the stage is set for the rest of the movie.

Barbra finds a farmhouse not too far away, where she meets Ben, played by Duane Jones. While Barbra struggles to cope with what is going on, Ben has already come to grips with the fact that the dead are hungry.

The characters are well rounded, and each of them has their own struggle and motivations. In the end, this is really the heart of every zombie movie, how do the survivors deal with the undead, and with each other?

Night of the Living Dead really does an amazing job at showing the conflict inherent in any human interaction, and then how stress magnifies those emotions.

If you haven’t seen Night of the Living Dead, its is a much watch, and scores a 100/100. It is Worth Your Time.

ZOMBIE MOVIES – World War Z (2013)

I remember seeing World War Z in the theater and being blown away with the story and the zombies, and was curious to see if it has held up. It’s crazy to think its 7 years old at this point.

So how does World War Z hold up?

Quite well. It is what every perfect zombie movie should have. It starts with the outbreak and spends just the right amount of time showing the horrors of the world ending, while at the same time showing us how the main characters managed to fight and survive through it. The initial zombie attack and rapid spread on the streets in World War Z was really hasn’t been beaten in any movie yet. This is what a zombie movie should be.

Next comes the planning phase. A good zombie’s “middle” will focus on how the main characters will survive long term. For World War Z that means Gerry Lane (Brad Pitt) being told that if he wants his family to stay safely with the remnants of the US government, he better do what he’s told and go investigate the root cause. The second phase of any good zombie movie always needs a few hordes, and World War Z delivers on that front as well.

If there is any hope for humanity, it will understanding the beginning of the apocalypse.

Supposedly there will be a World War Z reboot at some time, I hope that’s not just a pipe dream, this really was one of the best zombie movies of the 21st century.
