You might think Warm Bodies is a bit of a weird choice for Valentine’s Day. “Why not the To All the Boys sequel?” Well we like to steer clear of the norms. We mostly just thought this would be a fun twist rather than talking about some random rom com.
Warm Bodies is surprisingly sweet though. It’s a movie that came out in 2013 and flew mostly under the radar, but we’ve always loved it. It’s a bit Romeo and Juliet, and a bit Beauty and the Beast. In the zombie apocalypse, society has begun to re-establish itself, but the zombies too are evolving. Some of them into bonies, bodies too far gone to be saved, but some of them are ‘healthy’ and slowly regaining some of their human traits. And when one such zombie happens to fall in love with the pretty girl, things get interesting.
This is a movie we absolutely love, for so many reasons. First of all, it’s a medium movie. It’s a movie that came out of nowhere with a little bit of a budget and totally executed above all expectations. It’s a great story, a unique take on the zombie genre, and the acting is exceptional. We recommend it to anyone looking for something a little different on this day of romance.
That said, join us as we breakdown all our favorite things about Warm Bodies on today’s episode of So… I’m Watching This Show!
