    Not just in movies, but TV shows.

    I've often wondered how Jack Bauer's well intentioned but quite felonious random car jackings/home break-ins/etc would happen in somewhere other than LA, DC, etc. He wouldn't be so lucky elsewhere...

    I never stay awake longer than the first 5 minutes anyway. The last movie we went to I spent $20 to take a 90 minute nap...and it was worth every last cent of it too!!! I don't even remember what movie it was.

    I was thinking for zombie killing a .22 would be the best option. Lots of available ammo, large capacity mags, and no infected brain matter splattering around.
    I have to disagree with the .22.........
    I find it has a nasty habit of going "click" just when you need it
    Here in the UK we are allowed .22 rim fire FULLY Moderated with no limit of mag capacity (ever)
    And I can give you countless stories of being out bunny hunting with my tricked 10/22 working fine all evening until a bunny pops out 20 feet away an "click"

    No I think my Marlin 1894 with the mag restricter removed is far better

    My 2 cents

    This reminded me... When my wife was a little girl and she found a tic on the dog. She would first crush it with a brick, second drown it for several minutes, finally burn it.

    I just got done watching Zombieland with my kids and I learned a couple of things: Rule #2 is Double Tap. The other thing is when the SHTF and everyone is a Zombie, you can't have enough guns or ammo.

    Just got done watching the second movie and they where national guard trainees.

    Had they been Marines... again the movie would have been way to freekin short although a hoot to watch
    There is something about firing 4,200 thirty millimeter rounds/min that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

    Yeah like in "Shawn of the dead" - all they could think of for safety was to find the one place that had a gun, the "Winchester" bar. Of course then it was hilarious watching them try to work the thing. I don't want to be in the UK during the zombie apocalypse! More serious and closer to reality was "28 Days later" which showed the "zombies" as simply infected people gone crazy. In that one the survivors (Londoners) are having to make do with machetes, baseball bats, gasoline bombs and the like.

    Then there was the sequel (which was not nearly as good) - "28 weeks later" - in which the US Army and guns in general were made out to be "Evil." I guess they couldn't resist taking a stab at "gun-crazy" Americans, even in the midst of their zombie apocalypse...

    As an aside, one of my American friends "stationed" in the UK from my previous job flew back to America for a week, just to have dental work done! He didn't want to trust himself to the system there, for some reason...apparently he would have had to wait for a ridiculously long time to get the work done. Socialized health care, gun confiscation, Big Brother banning kitchen knives, home invasions on the rise, overrun by Muslims...why would anyone want to live in the UK if they didn't have to?

    shawn of the dead was specifically a spoof.. a comedy of sorts. I think it was way over the top with the humor. I believe it would have been a better movie had they not had so much limey humor lol.

    28 days later was a new take on the zombie apocalypse concept and I think it was better portrayed but the movie itself wasn't all that great.

    The sequel was difficult to keep up with and pretty much demonized all American military. *SPOILER ALERT* Case in point instead of killing the immune carrier monkey mother that showed up they decided to study her to make a cure but with minimal security... the outbreak started again.

    I have thought about it, however I think what is even more important to note is the few times in such movies someone had a firearm, it usually turns out to be even more horrific, but that is sort of the point, to make you feel helpless, no matter what, and gore.

    Why something like Deliverance is more enjoyable, because it is not about gore, and more about the (horror) story.

    In my adult life, I don't watch gore fest movies very often, I sort of avoid them. Not to say I don't enjoy violent movies that are bloody. If the point is violence or horror, I see what it is about. If the point is blood and guts, not much for me.

    The best example is something like Kill Bill. It is on the line between violence and gore, but something I would still watch. Then there is horror, bad situation where they fight to live, I can enjoy that.

    Movies like SAW or TX chain saw are gore, and are not for me.

    Off topic maybe, but I disagree with you. While it pretended to demonized, the virus overcame the plans to contain because people felt sorry, and took emotion based actions in contrast to the military's plan.

    It asked, at what point does society have the right to defend itself from the freedom of the individual. Not a popular thought for a pro-2A, or for that matter a pro-1A group, but a fair question to consider.
