I don't. Carrying an umbrella in Seattle is a sign of weakness and will get you beaten to death with an NPR tote bag.

You know, I actually had a scene in the original draft where R discussed this. I can't seem to find it anywhere, but basically, they eat the meat to absorb its "life energy", but they aren't actually digesting anything for nutrients. Their stomachs are inert. So as they eat, their stomachs just fill up with meat until it eventually squeezes its way through the intestines and they shit it out whole.
This was the only scene I ever wrote that I agreed to cut simply for being too gross.

Hahaha what?? Please don't tell me your wedding vows ended with "My penis fell off two weeks ago."

I TOOK AWAY NICHOLAS HOULT'S ACCENT! I TOOK IT! LIKE THE WITCH URSULA TOOK ARIEL'S VOICE, I SNATCHED IT OUT OF HIS THROAT AND LOCKED IT AWAY FOREVER! ENJOY THIS AMERICAN LIFE, NICKY BOY! HAHAHAHA.
Sorry. I'm in a pretty good mood today. No, I had nothing to do with that, but it's pretty common practice for British or Australian actors to do an American accent when acting in American films. Any unusual detail about a character requires some explanation in the film and if it's not explained, could be distracting to the audience. Actors are the avatars for the audience, and making both of the leads have foreign accents (British and Australian) would be vaguely, subconsciously offputting to American audiences. People want to be able to relate to the characters are fully as possible and anything that needlessly clutters that connection has to go. Otherwise, you'd need something in the film acknowledging their foreignness, which would be a waste of precious screen time.

Africa is hot, dude. Bears are fat and furry. It just wasn't meant to be.

Buzz seems to be a slave to his toy programming. For instance, when they hit that button that switches him into Spanish mode, which also totally rewrites his personality? That's creepy. I suspect Buzz is not really sentient. Woody all the way.

I think literally every interviewer I've encountered has asked me that and the temptation is growing to just break it down for them. What are you asking me, exactly? Are you asking where I get my ideas? Do you think ideas are "gotten" from a "place"? Are you asking where human consciousness and creativity comes from? Cause this is gonna be a LONG INTERVIEW.

That's impossible to choose, because in the time it took me to write this sentence, some hack horror studio will have pumped out 20 more straight-to-DVD shit piles that I will never, ever see.
Which raises a question: has there ever been a movie so bad, literally no one not involved in creating it has ever seen it?

It's completely different in tone, style, content, and themes. Warm Bodies is dark and satirical, has a nasty sense of humor, is full of blood, sex, drugs and foul language, and is not about romance so much as the meaning of being human. A love story is the engine for all of this, but the destination is not "Aw, they're going to fall in love!" it's, "Aw, they're going to crack the code of humanity's spiritual entropy and try to revive civilization!"
