Pontypool

Have you ever heard of this movie?  No?  I’m not surprised.  I wouldn’t have heard of it either if it weren’t for Netflix.  We wanted to watch a “zombie” movie, and this one came up as recommended.

It was… interesting.  I’m not entirely sure if I liked it or not.  I have no problem suspending disbelief as long as the situation makes sense in the context of the world created.  In this case, I’m not sure the premise was believable.  In a symbolic sense, the movie worked, and I’d enjoy discussing it with others who enjoy this genre and word games.  For entertainment, it was solidly okay.  If you’ve got nothing better to do on a Saturday night, it’s worth watching with friends.  If you’re going out of your way to watch something, I’d skip it.
