Lovely Movies: Warm Bodies

When I first saw the poster for Warm Bodies I had no intention of seeing it at all. But then I saw the trailer and got really excited! So this week I went to the cinema to check it out. And I'm glad I did.

It's not too gory, not too cheesy, but instead it has the perfect balance of humor, horror and romance. While I was watching it suddenly dawned on me that it was a retelling of Romeo and Juliet. Only this time with Julie and R.

Watch till about 1:30:

Also, if you've seen About a Boy, I'm sure you'll enjoy this chance to see a more grown-up Nicholas Hoult. And he did such a great job too, especially as a narrator. Makes you wonder where he's been all these years.

Anyway, I'll be reading the book soon too, as I just got my copy in the mail this week. I hope I'll enjoy it as much as the movie.


  1. Oh my gosh! I want to see this movie haha! Nicholas Hoult is such a great actor! :D

  2. Okay so when I saw the short commercial on tv, I thought this looked really dumb and people keep telling me it is. But after watching that, I kinda wanna see it. I trust your judgement.

  3. I want to see this so bad! I'm so glad that you liked it!

  4. i haven't seen it, yet, but I really love the trailer and have to see it! xxx

  5. Wait, he's from About a Boy? Hadn't put that together!

  6. I really enjoyed this movie too - it was surprisingly cool! xxx

  7. That's exactly how I would describe it too, but I never thought of the Romeo and Juliet thing but it's kind true. I went and seen it here in the States when it first hit theaters and really liked it more than I thought!

    1. I hadn't noticed until the balcony scene. Then it hit me: balcony, Julie, R... and then it seemed so obvious: the whole family/species thing. Thankfully it wasn't such a downer though;)

  8. The book is so awesome! Read it last year and was afraid they couldn't pull it off as a movie, but boy was I mistaken. Loved it.
    As to where Nicholas Hoult was been: You should watch the two first seasons of Skins (UK version).

  9. I love Nicholas Hoult and warm bodies, it was so sweet!!


Thank you for your comments, they really make my day!
