“Pop Culture has taken over America.  People are heavily influenced by what they see in the media, be it newspaper, magazine, radio, TV, movies and the internet.  The University of Baltimore is now offering a course called Zombie 101.  Why would they offer a class like this at a major university?  If  Zombies and zombie movies have been around for 50 years, how has advances in technology changed Zombies and made them more interesting now?” (You MUST write 5 sentences or you will get ZERO CREDIT)

    the zombie movies have a changed a whole lot during 50 years the first zombie movies all thezobies would just walk now in zombie movie they run. I love zombie movies i like see how some one could really survive something like. the blood and how the zombies look’ walk ‘ and every thing has changed in not too many ways because you still have to shoot them in the head to kill them and if you get bit by one you turn into one.

    Because of all the new computer-animation technology, more advanced photo and video-editing technology and movie makeup, zombies look so much more realistic. Vampires, werewolves and zombies are all people talk about these days. I think this is because the old zombie movies looked so fake that people couldn’t get through half of the movie without saying, “That is so stupid. It’s obviously some guy wearing shredded fabric with red food coloring squirted all over him.” But with all the new technology, zombies look real. Scary movies are actually scary, now. I actually jump a little when the zombie attacks the first victim, even though I saw it coming from the minute that moron goes down in the basement or the creepy old house or whatever, because it looks so real.

    I think that the xbox 360 is better and will have a better sale because it is a all around better game system. Yeah you can have internet and all of that but the xbox 360 can to but it has better graphics and would be better then the playstation 3. We will see what happens as the new game systes come out and then there will be a rival between them its my opinion of the xbox but indeed they are both good systems and anyone that has one should be happy because some out there dont have either.

    they would offer a course like that b/c to help people understand zombies. how to make a person look like a real zombie or create zombies using computer software. advances in technology has made people make more realistic zombies. it has helped ,make zombie look more like zombies. instead of looking fake.

    Computers make it look more real.
    Computer can make the movie scarier.
    Computers can make the have more gore.

    Okay for one this is kind of weird. I honestly don’t see why they offer a class like this. I don’t know, maybe it helps with acting or something but I don’t care for this idea. Another thing is people see these movies and get all these crazy ideas so they just gotta find a way to “improve” zombies. I don’t watch zombie movies or anything like that so I don’t know too much about how they are advanced. I just know that maybe in today’s society the cameras and computers are updated so I figured that maybe that can make them look scarier.

    they have changed since the 50s because we now have better technology. but with our technology we have better graphics and we can make a more real like picture of what they look like. before they didn’t really look like anything realistic. so i think that the zombie movies have changed a lot since the 50s. mostly from the technology.

    I THINK IS WAS SMART FOR THEM TO MAKE AT CLASS LIKE THIS. BECAUSE PEOPLE LOVE WATCHING MOVIES WITH ZOMBIE. THIS OFFER WAS VERY SMART. THE TECHNOLOGY WITH ZOMBIE GRAPHIC AND MORE HAVE CHANGES A LOT SINCE THE 50’S. ITS MORE REALISTIC AND BETTER FOR THE MONEY.

    This is very stupid. I mean what would you even do in that class. Get fake blood and be a zombie. That is probably what they do in there. It looks kind of fun. It looks real easy and i would do it if i wasn’t so afraid of zombies.

    They would offer a course / class like about zombies because to help people believe and start liking zombies. if someone like art then i would recommend them to go to that class because the paint the zombies to make i it realistic but they also use technology .

    I love zombies. From zombie movies to zombie wear, I think it’s awesome.Now a zombie college class would be a great course to take. Since the existence of zombies have been around for over 50 years, it can make you alot of money in the real world. There is also alot of new technology for zombies to make them look more real, which is great if you wantesd to help make a zombie movie or television series. Personally, I would take the course if I could.

    Zombie movies have changed because if the graphics and stuff. The technology helps all the graphics. Also they would offer the type of school because of the art form of it. Or the job offers for movies maybe if there’s openings for zombie movies.

    i don’t think that they should do it because zombies has lost a lot of people interest in zombies. because almost all the movies that are coming out has zombies in it. and people just like zombies because there scary but there coming out with a lot of other movies like vampires and ware wolfs. so they shouldn’t offer zombies at University because people aint always going to like zombies.

    ii think that Zombie is just a another world for a monster so if monsters aren’t real than nither is a Zombie also ii think people would omnly want to take a class like that juss to say they went to school or collage for that or because its what they would call (COOL).
