I'm very torn between NOTLD and DAWN.  I suppose in the end I have to go for DAWN as that's what I've been watching almost non-stop.

DAY has he best effects, but the portrayal of the military is just a bit too clownish; too anti-Vietnam.  And it begins Romero's misguided slide into having his zombies get "smart".

LAND is actually quite a bit of fun despite a "genius" zombie.

I agree. A tough choice between Night and Dawn for me as well. Night was the one that started it all, but Dawn is such an amazing followup...

Yeah, in a way it made NOTLD legitimate in as much as it proved Romero was a "real" director and auteur.  

Quentin Tarantino once said that the "A" in George A. Romero's name stood for "A fucking genius" which is both funny and true.

I know we've posted this before, but here's a sweet making of DAWN:

Whew.....this is tough.

It's tough because really DOTD is kind of two movies.

It's the movie before the mall, and the movie after, much like DOTD 2004 is.

NOTLD is the same movie throughout.

Now, DOTD has the basement scene, which is so grim that it actually redeems some of the slightly campier parts of the movie.

But, NOTLD has the truck fire scene, and the scene where the daughter kills the mother.

I guess it's a difference in tone.

I gotta give it to NOTLD here, but that's an "A" versus an "A-".
