The Movie Gurus of Movie-Gurus.com are an internationally located co-operative group of Film lovers united by an interest in movies.
The staff screens feature length films and documentaries of an hour or more in length in theaters, at Film Festivals, and on DvD. Occasionally we also review notable shorts or collections. Unlike many other review sites, our reviews tend toward an in-depth analysis of the film, and offer a rating against a carefully considered 5 star (with halves) scale.
We hope you enjoy your visit, and welcome your questions and comments.
A remake of the 1978 horror movie that was directed by horror master George A. Romero, ‘Dawn of the Dead’ is a smartly re-engineered thrill – a mind-blowing orgy of horror, guts, gore and the walking dead! Is this movie better than the original? Yes. Better than ‘28 Days Later’? Well, this is a different beast.
First time director, Zack Snyder, was given a gift with this project. Hollywood tends to remake classics with disastrous results – the pointless shot-for-shot remake of ‘Psycho’, the MTV-powered remake of ‘The Texas Chainsaw Massacre’, hell, they even remade ‘Casablanca’!
