Max Brooks Does Speaking Gig at University of Illinois to Spread Hate, Push Crowbar Sales

| November 11, 2011

Really, it’s just tragic to see universities indulge this hateful and increasingly paranoid man in his fantasies and violent delusions about the peaceful Differently Animated: “If you don’t know how to survive a zombie attack, chances are you will when I get done talking,” said Max Brooks, author of New York Times best-sellers, “The Zombie [...]

A Sad Milestone

| November 11, 2011

Very sad news indeed: Max Brooks’s zombie novel World War Z has surpassed the million copies sold mark. The book, which was publishing by Random House’s Crown imprint in hardcover in September 2006, has sold over 1 million copies in all formats combined: hardcover, paperback and digital. Apparently his previous work of Living Supremacism, ‘The [...]

‘World War Z’ Director Admits to Extremely Loose Adaptation of Book at Best

| September 21, 2011

When you hear things like ‘the spirit of the Book’ you should know by now that the final product will bear extremely little similarity to the literary work that you loved (or in our case, hated): Get More: Movie Trailers, Movies Blog You had to guess he’d say things like that. The book doesn’t have [...]

‘World War Z’ Pretty Much Throws Entire Brooks Concept Out the Window

| September 14, 2011

First they discarded the cerebral and engaging, if still permeated by hatred, narrative structure of ‘World War Z’ in favor of a cut-down Hollywood blockbuster approach. Because thinking is not something you should do while watching a mainstream film? Now news comes that they have discarded pretty much all that was left of Brooks’ unique [...]

University of Houston-Victoria Astonishingly Decides to Dedicate Entire YEAR to ‘World War Z’

| September 3, 2011

Notice: The following post contains details from Max Brooks’ hyperviolent, amoral and sadistic Living Supremacist Magnum Opus ‘World War Z’ to help illustrate the incredible impropriety of using it as the base of a year of introductory academic instruction. Proceed with caution. I’m shocked and appalled by this outrageous misuse and abuse of developing young [...]

Shameful Anti-Zombie Pandering from E!

| August 31, 2011

Just take a look at the story that E! Online is pitching with the headline ‘Brad Pitt Becomes Real Life Hero, Rescues Woman From Zombie Attack’: While shooting a scene in which 700 extras flee a pack of zombies, a woman slipped and fell, putting her at risk of being trampled by her fellow actors. [...]

‘World War Z’ Movie? Well, More Like ‘World War Z Lite’

| August 15, 2011

We’ve given the Zombie Rights ally lots of updates on the unfortunate production of the, ahem, adaptation of Max Brooks’ infamous hate novel ‘World War Z’ into a big Hollywood blockbuster here on the ZRC blog. However, what would you say if I told you that all that money, and all that Anti-Zombie violence on [...]

Tasteless Attempts to Tie Zombie Apocalypse Film ‘World War Z’ to London Troubles

| August 12, 2011

I really don’t know what to make of truly awful, mercenary and opportunistic ‘journalism’ like this sometimes: Rioting, looting, muggings, cars and buildings on fire – London has witnesses apocalyptic scenes on its streets over the past three days. Scenes which many said looked like those from a film depicting the end-of-the-world. … The star [...]

Release Date for ‘World War Z’

| August 12, 2011

I guess I should block off some time to really protest this one but good: Paramount Pictures announced that the zombie epic, World Word Z, will be released on December 21, 2012. Ahh, the ZRS shows their usual, err, flair for accuracy with this post, but we thank them for the news nonetheless. *snicker* Yes [...]

‘World War Z’ Gets Hungry (For Something Other than Prejudice)

| August 7, 2011

I am continually saddened by the level of community support for this awful project: Filming in Cornwall of Brad Pitt’s latest blockbuster was nearly brought to a halt for lack of sustenance – until a local delicacy saved the day. The 47-year-old Hollywood superstar is in Cornwall filming scenes for zombie action film World War [...]
