Warm Bodies; He's still dead but he's getting warmer.

Gosh, after seeing this movie for the first time I think I really LOVE this Movie. It’s amazing how LOVE could change everything, even change the zombie back to human, live again. 

It took me watching this movie twice to realize that it is Romeo and Juliet but in different kind of way. yeah. I mean his name is “R" she is Julie, and her boyfriend that he killed is named Perry…like Paris, they are from opposing families…I mean I can’t believe I didn’t see it the first time.

Warm Bodies is a 2013 American paranormal romantic zombie comedy film based on Isaac Marion's novel of the same name. Directed and written by Jonathan Levine, the film stars Nicholas HoultTeresa Palmer and Analeigh Tipton.

After a zombie apocalypse, R, a zombie, spends his days wandering around an airport which is now filled with hordes of his fellow undead, including his best friend M. R and M achieve rudimentary communication with grunts and moans and occasional near-words. As a zombie, R constantly craves human flesh, especially brains, as he is able to "feel alive" through the victims' memories he experiences when he eats them. While R and a pack of zombies are out hunting for food, they encounter Julie Grigio and a group of her friends, who were sent out by Julie's father from a heavily-fortified, walled-off human enclave in a nearby city to recover medical supplies from abandoned buildings. 
R sees Julie and is drawn to her. After being shot in the chest by Julie's boyfriend, Perry, R kills him while Julie is distracted, and eats his brain, giving R his thoughts and memories, making his attraction to Julie even stronger. He rescues Julie from the rest of the pack and takes her back to an airplane he lives in at the airport to keep her safe. The two bond, causing R to slowly begin to come to life.[9] After a few days, Julie gets restless, and tries multiple times to return home, yet attracts swarms of zombies every time, requiring R to rescue her. After fending off a group of zombies, including M, who is confused by R's actions, R decides it is time to return her to the human enclave.
On the way, R reveals to Julie that he was the one that killed Perry, which prompts her to abandon him and return alone to the human enclave. R begins to make his way back to the airport, heartbroken. He then sees that M and other zombies are also beginning to show signs of life, making all of them targets for the Bonies, skeletal zombies who having lost all traces of their humanity have shed their flesh, and prey on anything with a heartbeat. R and M lead a group to the human enclave, where R sneaks inside the wall. There he finds Julie and meets her friend Nora, who is initially shocked. When R reveals that the other corpses have also been coming back to life, the three of them attempt to tell Colonel Grigio, Julie's father and leader of the survivors. Colonel Grigio, however, refuses to believe corpses can change and threatens to kill R, stopping only when Nora pulls a gun on him. Julie and R escape to a baseball stadium where the rest of R's group is waiting, but find themselves under attack by a horde of Bonies.
While M and his gang of zombies square off against the Bonies, Julie and R run, but find themselves trapped. Taking the only escape route, R jumps with Julie into a pool far below, shielding her from the impact. After Julie pulls R from the bottom of the pool, they kiss passionately - causing R to become fully revived. Colonel Grigio finds them soon after, shooting R in the shoulder without warning, and when R bleeds, is finally convinced that he has returned to life. The humans and zombies combine forces and kill most of the Bonies while the rest die off, and the zombies slowly assimilate into human society. The film ends with a now fully alive R and Julie watching a wall surrounding the city being demolished, signifying the end of the apocalypse.
