Zombieland (2009)
#90 on my Top 100 List
It's very appropriate that I just watched Ghostbusters two days ago, because this movie includes the greatest recreation of a scene from Ghostbusters in cinema ever. There were so many great things about this movie, from how the four main characters refuse to give their names to protect themselves to the narrator's Rules of Surviving that pop up from time to time to Woody Harrelson's maddening desire for Twinkies. There is blood and gore abounding, but the movie is also full of laughs and hilarious weaponry (a banjo and car doors standing out most in my mind). Aside from the Ghostbusters allusion, there is also a reference to Deliverance and an opening scene that eerily looks like the slow-motion opening to Watchmen.
My Netflix rating: 5 stars
