YMMV: Dawn of the Dead (2004)

  • Broken Base: Among zombie-movie fans, whether this or the original Dawn is "better".
  • Crowning Music of Awesome: The use of Johnny Cash's "The Man Comes Around" over the title credits and Jim Carroll's "People Who Died" over the end credits.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: C.J. and Kenneth.
  • Damsel Scrappy: Nicole, whose stupidity forces them to prematurely flee from the safety of the mall (though Steve shares equal blame). Unlike Steve however, she survives right to the end.
  • Narm: Just when you've got a handle on who all the characters are, the movie throws a literal truckload of new people at you.
  • Nausea Fuel: Like in the original.
  • One-Scene Wonder: Matt Frewer and his character's early death scene.
  • Retroactive Recognition: When did Phil Dunphy become such a jerk?
  • Special Effects Failure: Looking at this version, a lot of the CG shots are pretty apparent (especially in the scene where society collapses around Ana as she's escaping from her neighborhood). Takes away a bit from the scare factor.
    • In the DVD commentary, director Snyder cheerfully points out a specific example- when they cobbled together the overhead shot of Ana's neighborhood via CGI, they failed to give some of the houses any street access.
