Rhyming Reviews: Warm Bodies

It’s a trifle unfair of me to hog all the limelight with my bibble all the time, so I thought I’d introduce you to the wonderful lyrical skills of my buddy, Rob Simpson. A published children’s poet, this guy can spin a limerick out of a couple of boring nouns and a very questionable adjective. He’s onboard the site now to offer a different kind of review. Without further ado about much, here’s Rob’s rhyming review for Warm Bodies.

I’m not a fan of rom-coms

They’re always much the same

There’s a sensitive bloke with rippling pecs

Lusted after by a buxom dame

So it’s great when a movie comes along

And turns the genre on it’s head

By replacing the typical hunky bloke

With a member of the undead

For this movies basic premise

(And bear with me ‘cause this is insane)

Is a zombie who falls in love with a girl

After eating her poor boyfriends brain

This creates a sort of reverse infection

Which spreads through the whole zombie race

The power of love brings them back to life

(You see you can’t call THAT plot commonplace)

I’d love to have been in the meeting

Where the idea for this film was first pitched

“It’s a romance with corpses…NO not necrophilia!”

I bet the movie execs were in fits


I really enjoyed watching Warm Bodies

I’d urge you to give it a try

But chaps if you need more convincing…

The leading lady’s very easy on the eye!
