    Zombie films like Brad Pitt-starring 'World War Z' are delicious summer treats
    For sheer summer escape, it's hard to beat a good zombie flick. Good, bad, always ugly, the undead are a highly amusing genre as a whole. "Zombieland" from 2009, with Jesse Eisenberg and Emma Stone riding shotgun and Woody Harrelson wielding one, remains my favorite. "Warm Bodies," a clever hipster twist on the old trope starring Nicholas Hoult and Teresa Palmer out earlier this year, comes close. But for now, consider indulging in the campy, eco-eccentric fun of Brad Pitt's battle with the undead, their teeth-chattering and bad hygiene giving "World War Z" its bite. And don't let the environmental message scare you either. Director Marc Forster understands it's the absurdities and the oddities that bring zombie movies to life. Something — virus, plague, aliens, a studio exec in need of a horror film in his portfolio — is causing the undead to rise in "WWZ." They have a swarming tendency, making giant hills of undead bodies with their undead buddies. So cool. The best is when they hit a wall. Ah, zombies, always a message for the living in the undead.

     The lure of a Southern drawl at the movies
    "There are things you can get away with in this world, and things you can't." The voice is Matthew McConaughey's, and days after seeing him in "Mud," I can close my eyes and hear him still — a simple line echoing with the mysteries of a man caught...

    Weekend Movies: 'Easy A,' 'The Town,' 'Devil'

     
    We know what we're studying for: "Easy A," a movie that looks like the 2010 answer to "Mean Girls" and marks "Superbad" and "Zombieland" star Emma Stone's long-deserved coming-out party. Fingers crossed that it's as fetch as it appears. Also out this...
