Army of the Dead (2021)

Army of the Dead¬†is a 2021 American¬†zombie¬†heist film¬†directed by¬†Zack Snyder¬†from a screenplay he co-wrote with¬†Shay Hatten¬†and¬†Joby Harold, based on a story he also created. The film features an¬†ensemble cast¬†consisting of¬†Dave Bautista,¬†Ella Purnell,¬†Omari Hardwick,¬†Ana de la Reguera,¬†Theo Rossi,¬†Matthias Schweigh√∂fer,¬†Nora Arnezeder,¬†Hiroyuki Sanada,¬†Tig Notaro,¬†Ra√ļl Castillo,¬†Huma Qureshi, and¬†Garret Dillahunt. It follows a group of mercenaries who plan a¬†Las Vegas casino heist amid a zombie apocalypse.

The film underwent reshoots in September 2020 after several sexual misconduct allegations were made against cast member¬†Chris D’Elia; he was replaced by Notaro using¬†green screens¬†and¬†CGI. Army of the Dead¬†was released in select theaters in the United States on May 14, 2021, and was digitally released on Netflix on May 21. Critics praised the film for its humor and found it would appeal to fans of “both Snyder and ensemble action flicks”, but criticized its runtime. It grossed $1 million at the box office and became one of the most-watched original Netflix films with an estimated 75 million viewers. The film also spawned a¬†franchise¬†consisting of the spin-off prequel¬†Army of Thieves; an upcoming anime-style series subtitled¬†Lost Vegas; and a direct sequel titled¬†Planet of the Dead¬†which is in development.

Current Work Routine & Upcoming Personal Days Time Off

I seem to have settled into a new routine once again. January has been busy, unusually, for some silly reasons and I have not had much easy time which we usually have. We have been told that we will be a bit busy and have a bunch of training to do the week starting from the 24th. In the meantime I am doing a lot of id maintenance work for the client tool – yesterday being one of the worst busiest day in recent memory. And I am doing a 4:30 pm to a 1:30 am shift. I am still under medication and am taking it easy at home and not going out.

This week I will be taking 2 days off from work – this coming Thursday is my dad’s 83rd birthday and we have this system at work where we can claim 5 days as special leave and they have to give it to us. So I picked my dad’s birthday and mom’s birthday plus my own birthday. I then picked a day in October in between my niece & younger nephew’s birthdays (2 days apart) so we could celebrate it all on one day. My sister’s birthday falls on a Sunday so there is no problem there. The 5th is a random date that I picked because I couldn’t think of any other special day. I can change it if I want.

The very next day I have taken off for hospital visits and checkups and blood tests in needed. I do not know how many more times I may have to do the follow up but I want this problem gone as much as possible and not have to walk on eggshells wondering if I will get those cramps again. It already has been too long that I have pushed this aside and I need to take care of it.
