Might be watching it again tonight with DOA. It's a fun little movie. Shot from a handheld camera perspective, it shows how a zombie outbreak happens. Pretty much like a typical zombie film but from a slightly different perspective.

And it's a Romero movie. I love all of his zombie films.

Some movies shot from the handheld camera perspective annoy me at times. Some films do it well but some just balls it up big time.

I don't think it hurts Diary at all.

Love the original Romero trilogy and was initially excited about Diary as I'm a fan of the whole POV thing, but I've heard this one is packed with more social commentary than any of the others combined, so...eh, I dunno. I still haven't even seen Land Of The Dead yet.

Land of the Dead was kind of disappointing to me. Especially with the whole leader zombie thing. I know Bub was smart and was trained or taught to talk and not kill humans, but the idea of a zombie trying to snap other zombies out of confusion and grunting at them like a caveman for orders was ridiculous. Asia Argento was hot in it, though.

About the social commentary, I don't know. I don't see how there is more in Diary than the first 3 films. There is a lot about myspace, youtube, and media in general... but it's not on as big of a scale as the others. The other movies seemed to really have a message. While the social commentary is the most obvious in Diary, it was mainly "the media lies."
