Ok if you were an action movie character and you were given a choice of four enemies to fight and you had to choose one of the four which would you pick?

1. Nazis
2. Soviets
3. Aliens
4. Zombies

We narrowed it down to the 4 most common enemies in movies.

Killing zombies would be so much fun. Kill them with guns, swords, cars, fire, chemicals, baseball bats, etc. To be clear, I'm talking about slow moving zombies. Killing zombies opens you up to nearly endless methods of murder, while against anyone else it's pretty much just guns. You'd never get bored of killing zombies! Not to mention if i I'd have a high chance of survival against zombies, but against Nazis, Soviets, and Aliens, it'd be a lot harder to live. Zombieland would be my perfect scenario. Mostly because I'd be hooking up with Emma Stone.

Doesn't matter whether it's movies, tv shows, or video games.  The dowloadable zombie game for Red Dead Redemption was incredible.

Within the last few years I think it has boiled down to Zombies=always cool, Vampires=dumb.  You have shows like the Walking Dead, and the movie Zombieland as examples.  I also thought Planet Terror was a great movie.

My name is Lt. Aldo Raine and I'm putting together a special team, and I need me eight soldiers. Eight Jewish-American soldiers. Now, y'all might've heard rumors about the armada happening soon. Well, we'll be leaving a little earlier. We're gonna be dropped into France, dressed as civilians. And once we're in enemy territory, as a bushwhackin' guerrilla army, we're gonna be doin' one thing and one thing only... killin' Nazis. Now, I don't know about y'all, but I sure as hell didn't come down from the goddamn Smoky Mountains, cross five thousand miles of water, fight my way through half of Sicily and jump out of a fuckin' air-o-plane to teach the Nazis lessons in humanity. Nazi ain't got no humanity. They're the foot soldiers of a Jew-hatin', mass murderin' maniac and they need to be dee-stroyed. That's why any and every every son of a bitch we find wearin' a Nazi uniform, they're gonna die. Now, I'm the direct descendant of the mountain man Jim Bridger. That means I got a little Injun in me. And our battle plan will be that of an Apache resistance. We will be cruel to the Germans, and through our cruelty they will know who we are. And they will find the evidence of our cruelty in the disemboweled, dismembered, and disfigured bodies of their brothers we leave behind us. And the German won't not be able to help themselves but to imagine the cruelty their brothers endured at our hands, and our boot heels, and the edge of our knives. And the German will be sickened by us, and the German will talk about us, and the German will fear us. And when the German closes their eyes at night and they're tortured by their subconscious for the evil they have done, it will be with thoughts of us they are tortured with. Sound good?

I have to go with Aliens.  Just because I don't get the "I killed somebody's dad" guilt for the next 50 years.   I guess zombies are similar, but that's only if I know they are never coming back, but still there's the lingering memory that they were once people.

I would definitely want to fight communists just like the high school kids did in Red Dawn.  That way I could hide out in the mountains and be part of an insurgency that calls themselves the wolverines.

Wasn't that every child of the 1980s fantasy?

You forgot the #1 most common movie enemy, the businessman. Hollywood HATES businessmen. Far more common for a businessman to be the BBEG than for any of the four listed above, especially on net given the number of good guy aliens (and soviets, or at least socialists).
