Zombieland 2 – Doubletap

Well 10 years have gone by Columbus and Wichita are a couple, Tallahassee’s still an a-hole and Little Rock is not so little anymore. Welcome back, to the United States of Zombieland! Z0mbieland one was of my favorites when it released in Oct. 2009. I love almost anything Zombie so a movie with some of my favorite actors was a definite must-see when it came out. Now 10 years later we're getting the sequel to it, but how will it compare to the original? Well, let’s check it out, shall we?
