Now... the problem is...

So there was a review i particularly picked recently in Selangor Times on "Serangan Zombi Pertama di Malaysia"... Well, knowing the reviewer, it was pretty predictable what he was going to write about. Some excerpts...

The more traditionally theatrical, dialogue-driven scenes involve Salmon and risk-adverse physics nerd Ma’an (played by performer/writer Redza Minhat) trapped in an ofcepantry. The big debate? Whether they should leave their safe haven, brave the undead-infested streets, and travel on to Langkawi, a supposedly “Zombie Free Zone”. Eventually,Ma’an comes to the predictable conclusion that he can’t live his life like a routine-obsessed zombie, and takes a chance. That’s paltry stuff. The zombie genre has been pregnant with socio-economic commentary since Romero’s Night on the Living Dead, dealing with runaway consumerism, the concept on the Other, and Hobbesian ideas on government.

Serangan Zombi Pertama di Malaysia was an opportunity for incisive observations about the Malaysian state of being.Unfortunately, it doesn’t dive below surface-level moaning.


Here's what i think.



i know a beruk in tanjung jara who does wonders daily. Sekian.
