Snippet from My Review: (read my full review here)

Warm Bodies is akin to a complete nine year run of a CW primetime soap, boiled down to 97 minutes, stripped of its angsty, faux drama and given a healthy soundtrack budget because even soap opera emotion is harder to create than emotion generated from songs we all recognize. It’s not that bad, but I could just as easily do without it.

Starter Questions

Here are a couple of questions to help get the conversation started.

1.) Do you think the soundtrack elevated the film or was a crutch used to fill in emotional gaps?

2.) What did you think of the performances? I personally thought the lead cast did quite well. Of the supporting cast Rob Corddry was great, but I could have done without the John Malkovich tough guy act.
