Day of the Dead is George A. Romero's last great film and it is my personal favorite from his "of the Dead" series.
It's amazing to see what Romero churns out these days when you consider this film as something he did when he was in top form. Personally, I think he should've just ended the zombie films with this one. I mean, I was just as excited when I heard news of him doing another "of the Dead" film as the next horror movie fan. However, when I finally sat down and watched the almost passable Land of the Dead and later the punch in the nuts that was Diary of the Dead and, finally, the sleepfest that was Survival of the Dead I felt sad in the way that you feel when your favorite boy band gets back together to do a reunion tour in which to regain the magic that captured your heart in the first place. Then, you buy front row tickets when you hear that their tour stops in your town and you get the really glossy and expensive tour program along with the satin tour jacket and you get to your seat only to witness Joey singing out of key and Jonathon looking like he's not really into it anymore. You see that Donnie has lost most of his hair and Jordan can't really pull off his old moves without pulling a hammy. I don't know about the other dude.
