Romantic Movie Scene Spotlight | R and Julie from Warm Bodies

Tuesday, October 31, 2017

No secret has been made of the fact that I adore the zombie romcom, Warm Bodies. I saw it quite on a whim, and loved it ever since then. Though I didn't get a chance to re-watch it leading up to All Hallow's Eve (though I won't say that I won't still watch it, because, it's Warm Bodies), I did relive it in some sense.

FILM REVIEW | Warm Bodies (2013) - A Zombie RomCom Adaptation

As an excuse, I mean, I had to for an article I was working on, I did re-watch clips of this one, and awww. Cuteness. Overload.

Though its quirky (and admittedly, strange), this is one of those films I adore. Do I want to watch it every weekend? No. But then there are very few films that do inspire a once-a-week-rewatch kind of emotion. Today I'm sharing a snippet of the Romantic Moment feature I wrote for Silver Petticoat.

The romance between the star-crossed lovers, R and Julie (who'd thought it from a zombie flick??) is as charming, sweet and swoon-y as I remember. Check out the full feature, and tell me all your thoughts!

Romantic Moment of the Week: Warm Bodies’ R and Julie, and a Balcony Scene

THE FILM: Warm Bodies
THE PAIR: R (Nicholas Hoult) and Julie (Teresa Palmer)
THE MOMENT: R risks his safety in order to see Julie again.

No matter how you look at it, there are some love stories that are strange. Not all are strange in ways that make them unlikable, but rather are “strange” in a loveable, almost charming way. Warm Bodies tells the story of R and Julie and is one of these wonderfully strange stories.

  1. I don't know if I'd quite say R is swoony, but I do love this movie so much. :)

    1. Not physically (because ZOMBIE!!), but I do love how he cares for and sweetly pursues Julie, it's all - weirdly - swoon-ish. ;)

      Glad you're a fan too, Lauren.

  2. This is SUCH a fun movie! I loved the book too- I just think it's great how it can be both serious and funny and full of emotion! I definitely like them together! I hope you were able to get the rewatch in, too :)

    1. Ditto, Shannon!! I love how "warm" and sweet this story is. I didn't read the book, but never say never. :)

      Julie and R are definitely a "ship" couple for me - and thanks! I didn't sneak in a re-watch, but it's never too late, right?? ;)

      Thanks for visiting!
