Zombie Movies – Serenity (2005)

Is Serenity a zombie movie? It sure is. The Federation has unleashed the Reavers on the universe after experimenting with weaponizing modified humans. What could go wrong right?

Sure, there is an awesome plot that revolves around the crew of the
Serenity, and the movie not a classical zombie movie, so I am going to deduct a point for that. Which leaves Serenity with an almost perfect 99/100.

If you haven’t had the pleasure of watching this classic, make it a priority, you won’t regret it.

Zombie Movies – The Girl With All The Gifts (2016)

I’d never hear of The Girl With All The Gifts when by brother brought it over for us to watch. It turned out to be one of those gems that you somehow missed when it was in the theaters, and your not sure how it slipped by.

Sennia Nanua plays the young female lead, and her performance as Melanie is amazing. Sennia plays Melanie perfectly, and the connection between her and Gemma Arterton, who plays Helen Justineau is what makes this movie the beautiful thing that it is. Please keep in mind that Gen Close plays one of the leads, and yet Sennia steals every scene she is in, regardless of who is on screen with her.

The Girl With All The Gifts takes a new spin on the zombie genre, and does it in a way that is unique and riveting, while also giving us some great movie moments.

In one of my favorites Melanie tells one of the soldiers to pretend to be scared, which he doesn’t really need to do at that moment in time.

Overall, The Girl With All The Gifts earned its 95/100 score, and the only thing that cost it five points was the fact that they didn’t leave a lot of room open for a sequel.

Whiskey Dreams – Teeling Whiskey

I have to be honest, I don’t usually find any whiskey that I like that ins’t a Bourbon. My palate just doesn’t find anything with smoke enjoyable, and that rules out pretty much every scotch and many other types of whiskeys for me.

Recently I was travelling in upstate New York and the liquor store didn’t have a great selection of Bourbon, but did have this Irish Single Malt Teeling Whiskey.

I picked it up on a whim, and was quite happy with the way it turned out.

Overall Teeling’s scored a 70/100 and I’ll be looking for another bottle because this one is almost gone.

Pros

  • Smooth and silky after it opens up over ice.
  • Light and buttery flavor.
  • Finishes with a creamy smoothness.

Cons:

  • Moderately priced.
  • For me this is a hard to find bottle. My local stores don’t carry Teelings.
