Zombiology: Enjoy Yourself Tonight (今晚打丧尸) Movie Review:

Peps Goh: The first thought that came to my mind as the end credits started rolling was, “Wow, that was the most visually-appealing cinematic garbage I’ve ever seen.” For me, I was contemplating halfway whether to call it a day and just not continue watching. I will probably have done that if not for wanting to review this proper.
Zombiology Enjoy Yourself TonightPeps Goh: If I had to judge it as a single complete narrative, I’ll have to fail it 0/5 no questions. The plot was struggling to include much too many ideas, and ended up an incoherent mess of well-done scenes that would otherwise be decent if they were standalone short films. I imagine that perhaps the members of the creative team wanted to make a dozen movies, all of differing genres. And the argument, unresolved, led to an ambitious attempt to make a comedy-tragedy-coming-of-age-romance-motivational-supernatural-horror-thriller-zombie-action-surrealism-hero-adventure-anime.Zombiology Enjoy Yourself Tonight Michael Ning CherryPeps Goh: Zombiology probably deserves a 3.5/5 for a production studio showreel. The separate acts when looked at by themselves are well executed, and manages to invoke the intended emotional reactions on cue be it cringy-laughter, awkward pity, uncomfortable sorrow or tawdry self-aware motivation. And while the characters are all across the board deeply unlikable, they all possess complex character flaws and sophistication, hence bestowing the potential to be relatable.

Zombiology Enjoy Yourself Tonight Alex Man Michael NingTiffany Yong: While it started off pretty much as a joke (pun intended), I mean an old-school animation with a chicken as the antagonist/ villian, the play of unrequited love and forgiveness between family members were well-done enough to draw tears to my eyes. The veteran actors Alex Man and Carrie Ng were able to touch with their performance, but sadly, the film did not deserve them.
Zombiology AnimationPeps Goh: Props to the animation studio however, that was some commendable work. It is not the first time a film has tried to combine animation with live-action, but this is the first time I felt ridiculed when the characters from the animation actually came to live. And yes, by this, I meant that cuboid chicken that turns people into zombies with his eyes and uses eggs as bombs to kill human. Oh yes, they turn into fried sunny-side-ups when detonated. 
Zombiology Movie StillPeps Goh: Apart from that, I frankly feel deeply offended walking out the theatre, akin to what one might feel walking out of a restaurant that served you a can of button mushroom and a packet of uncooked vermicelli both unopened. And they proceed to hand you a broken pot and can-opener (not even a single cutlery), when you actually ordered truffle shiitake aglio-olio from the menu (menu that is actually misspelled words written by an orange whiteboard marker on a roll of possibly-used toilet paper).
Michael_Venus_Louis_CherryTiffany Yong: All in all, I felt that it was a pity that the cast (some of them were brilliant-good), had to be in a film which makes the audience wonder, “so why did I pay to watch this again?”

    Looks like they want to come up with their own mythology here. I do not like this type of film though based on your photos. Your very low rating is not encouraging at all.
