Zom 100: Bucket List of the Dead (2023)

Zom 100: Bucket List of the Dead is based off the book series by the same name. The movie was originally shot in Japan and then dubbed to English. There is also an anime series. Don’t judge the anime by the live action version.

The movie is a very thinly veiled commentary on the Japanese Salaryman Culture. The working class are slaves who are expected to give everything to their corporate masters. Zombies to their jobs if you please.

Zom 100: Bucket List of the Dead Scoring

Zom 100: Bucket List of the Dead scores scores 60/100, putting if firmly in Rainy Day Movie territory. It attempts to be a fun Zombie survival movie like Zombieland but the characters in Zom 100 can’t hold up to the Zombieland crew. The dialogue is flat – just didn’t translate well. The same for the acting. A lot of it seems over the top when dubbed to English – which is why I wonder if the native Japanese version makes more sense?

It was fun, and had some good action scenes here and there. One of my favorites is the Zombie Bowling:

Zombie Motorcycle Bowling

The problem is that these scenes were great, they just were consistent. There are lots of slow spots between the good parts. I do have to give them props for working a Zombie Shark/Hybrid into the story though.

The real problem is the storyline. When dubbed to English it just feels like the writers are hammering something into my skull I already know. Corporate America will take everything and will never care about you as a worker. All they care about is about and cash. I agree.

My problem with the message is that I watch Zombie Movies to escape from that reality – not to wallow in it.

The other problem with the movie is that the men are all caricatures of some not so great mail traits. The woman aren’t well rounded characters either.

Save it for a Rainy Day and have a few drinks while enjoying it.

Resident Evil: Season 1, Episode 4

Resident Evil The Turn has some really awesome fight scenes. The Brotherhood has Jade and Baxter. Worse, The Brotherhood has them captive in a very creepy stronghold.

Resident Evil The Turn
Resident Evil

The Brotherhood has captured a higher level “Mother Zombie” who can control the other Zombies, or Zeroes as the show calls them. This is one of those areas that I know is cannon in the Resident Evil world, there are Zombies who can think. It is a difficult line to walk. The hordes still need to be hordes. The more the Zombies show intelligence the less survival becomes about facing undead hordes. It just becomes any other war movie or survival movie.

Because this is canon in the game however, the series had to include it. The good news is that the directors did a good job of using Zombies with higher level thought processes.

My favorite parts of The Turn are definitely when Baxter goes full Bad Ass. I guess there is just some part of me that likes seeing slightly overweight people kick butt? I’ll have to see what my psychiatrist says about it.

Richard Baxter Goes Bad Ass

Jade of course finds herself face to face with the “Mother Zombie” but luckily she has a chainsaw for the fight which proves pivotal. Unfortunately for Jade she still finds herself cornered by the Zombies. Of course there is a box of grenades that just happen to be in the dead end room as well though. Wipes brow, not sure how she was getting out of that one otherwise.

Richard ends up finding Jade a minute later and they attempt to flee. This is where the slightly overweight guy ends up biting it (get it) because Jade can’t pull him up to safety. Richard ends up getting torn to pieces as Jade flees.

Throughout this we area also getting snippets of the “Old” timeline where Jade and her sister are dealing with Billie’s bite as well as the revelations that their father may not be the nicest guy in the world.

The Turn ends with Jade being captured by Umbrella. It ends with Jade looking up as an Umbrella soldiers pulls off their helmet. Based on Jade’s face, I’m guessing she just got reunited with her sister Billie.

Scoring Resident Evil The Turn

Resident Evil The Turn was really hard to score. If I cut out all the “Old” timeline scenes this was a 90. But that is like saying dinner was great if you ate around the roaches in the food right? I really am not a fan of the “Old” timeline scenes and would give them a 30. Because I’m trying to be fair I’m going to average the two scores. This leaves The Turn with a score of 60/100.

If you need your Resident Evil fix, I’d go back to the classics.

The Walking Dead: World Beyond, Season 1, Episode 7

Truth or Dare begins with Huck, played by Actress Annet Mahendru who happens to speak six languages, waking with a start.

Tony, Percy’s Uncle knows where there are fuel stores, thanks to some tricks of light, but now the team needs to know where they actually want to go.

Who goes to comfort her? Of course it’s Elton, which just makes her guilt worse.

Using the same trick they used to find the fuel dumps, they find a likely target in New York where Hope and Iris’s dad is.

The kids and the adults both enjoy some alcohol while the younger group plays a game of Truth or Dare. This goes south when Percy asks Hope what the worst thing she’s ever done. She knows she’s killed Elton’s mom at this point, but she’s not willing to say that, so she leaves the group when Percy pushes her.


While Hope is suffering we see Huck’s flashback to when the apocalypse started. She’s with her team, and they are facing their first zombies. It only takes one exchange for Huck to realize that headshots are critical. She must have watched a few zombie movies in her time.

As Huck is remembering, Hope wanders up to the roof where she bumps into Huck and admits that she killed Elton’s mom. Huck gives some good advice and tells Hope that no one else needs to know the truth. It won’t change anything but make life harder. Better to carry the truth and let the others go on in peaceful ignorance.

The next morning the team heads out to a CRM fuel dump, aiming to get enough fuel to get to New York.

Once inside Huck finds herself facing a hostage situation. Hope has a gun pressed against her head, and her survival depends on what Huck does next.

Huck talks down the hostage taker, and he releases Hope, but continue to holds Huck at gunpoint. We then see what Huck did when she was a Marine. She killed her own troops instead of killing innocent civilians. Then, after taking her hostages gun, and telling her she could save him, she puts a bullet in him, because the reality was he was too far gone.

Momma Drama

Once the team is safe, Tony and Percy tell the team they want to continue on the journey with them. Hope then gets the dagger twisted in her heart when Elton tells her that maybe his Mom is alive, because hey, anything is possible, and Hope has to agree.

As Hope and Huck talk about the pain of carrying the truth without sharing it, we see how Huck got her facial wounds. She did it to herself.

Truth or Dare  ends with Iris waking up, wondering why Percy didn’t come to meet her. When she goes looking for Percy, she finds Tony with most of his face missing. Percy is missing, and Silas is nearby, passed out in a bathroom stall.

Did Silas due the horrible deed? We are going to have to wait until next week to find out.

Truth or Dare Scoring

Truth or Dare scored a 60/100, putting it in Rainy Day territory. The Huck storyline was intriguing, but there just isn’t a lot to the storyline that is generating anxiety at this point. I’m hoping things will get better in the coming weeks.

Z Nation, Season 2, Episode 4

Batch 47 finds the Team at a Zombie pot farm. Literally. Zombies have merged with the pot plants, and thus we have Z Weed. The only problem is that the Zombies have fused with the pot, and harvesting Z weed makes them angry.

I love Z Nation’s mix of frenetic violence, fun characters, and the way it doesn’t take itself too seriously. Usually, this is great. Batch 47 takes it just a little bit too out there. Obviously you have to watch it because who just skips an episode in the middle of a series. But, my suggestion is that you have a few drinks to help you through it.

Or, better yet, if you live in a state where its legal. Light up a little bit bit of the green and pren

After the last few powerhouse episodes Batch 47 just doesn’t cut it. It was fun at times, but also silly, and I’m giving it a 60/100, putting it in Rainy Day Territory.

The Walking Dead: World Beyond, Season 1, Episode 6

Shadow Puppets begin with our survivors finding a young man lurking in the woods not far from their camp. There is a brief stand off before Percy is forced to drop his weapon. He has no food and no gear on him because he’s been robbed.


Iris takes pity on the kid and gives him some food.

I actually felt mad, then sad, that one of the most intense moments of the season so far is when Percy is telling his story of walking down a highway in the snow when he hears a herd coming. He can’t find an unlocked car, and he’s basically ready to give up. He climbs up on the roof of a vehicle, and shuts his eyes, preparing for the end.

Only when he does open his eyes, its a herd of buffalo.

This scene really made me question the casting choices for our main group. They are okay actors, but they don’t bring any intensity to these characters.

At a minimum Silas and Iris need to get eaten, then we can decide how the others hold up. Sorry, just being brutally honest.

Percy’s Story

As Percy is telling his story he says a few things that don’t seem plausible, not if he had to walk. But if he had a car…

With the promise of wheels to get Iris and Hope to their father the team decides to help Percy get his vehicle back. The team follows Percy into an abandoned town and get led on a bit of a wild goose hunt.

Not everything is exactly what it seems, and it turns out Percy and his Uncle have just been pulling an elaborate con to try and steal supplies. In the end, they all make nice, but there were a lot of things about this episode that I found really annoying.

There are so many times when Percy’s con could have gone horribly wrong. Some groups would probably of just killed him outright when he showed up. Then there is the fact that he had to rely on them picking up on how fast he travelled? Was he just going to keep dropping hints until they realized he had a car? Even if the group did let Percy live originally, once they know there is a vehicle involved, and he told them roughly where the vehicle was, they could have killed him then, and then gone after the wheels. Lastly, when they find the vehicle and Percy’s Uncle is playing possum, someone could have decided to stick him anyway, just to make sure.

Shadow Puppets Scoring

The whole set up seems overly contrived and complicated, which is the main reason that Shadow Puppets scores a 60/100.

At least there were garbage zombies to make the episode a little better.

The Walking Dead: World Beyond, Season 1, Episode 5

Madman Across the Water finds the survivors trying to get across the Mississippi. It is a big, wide river. In a world without anyone to maintain the infrastructure, things like bridges don’t last long. While the top level story is about getting across the river, the episode is really about Elton dealing with his childhood zombie trauma.

As the group is marching to the river, we repeatedly see signs for the Daiquiritown Animal park.

Daiquiritown Animal Park

I felt like this was the first issue with the episode. There was a lot of build up referencing the animal park, making me think they were going to do something a little more interesting with it. Zombie Tiger? Zombie Bear? Something?

Madman Across the Water felt like a long build up to give Elton his back story, and I’m sorry, I just don’t feel a connection to these characters at the moment. There isn’t any real tension or anxiety.

Madman Across the Water Scoring

Madman Across the Water ranked a 60/100, making this an episode you want to save for a Rainy Day. The child actors are okay for the most part. They just don’t gel together.
