I am going to geek out! Paul is an instant geek classic for about nine different reasons (beware… spoilers!) And on a day where I happened to watch Batman Begins AND The Dark Knight back to back, you know this must have been good to get the blog nod.
Just watched this flick and I have to get to work… umm… soon. I enjoyed myself so much at this movie, however, that it demanded I sit right down and write this post. Here we go… written by Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, the genius duo behind Shaun of the Dead (nuff said).
2009. 135 Minutes. Rated R.
“These are the best days of our lives. It’s a terrible thing to know, but I know it…”
It was 1966 and music pretty much would never get any better then it was right then… overall anyways. I mean sure, good music continued to be made after ’66, I’m not arguing that. Something about that particular time though… it’s like you can tell WHY it was being made. They had something to say. Guess what though…. the man didn’t want them to say ANYTHING.
“The good news is the engine has exploded and we’re all going to die.”
British comic writers Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright struck gold with this Dawn of The Dead spoof. While likely attempting to do a simple farce and nothing more, they (maybe accidentally) created one of the best zombie films in the last 20 years.

This probably could have been successful just as a comedy with a hint of romance. They deliver jokes and spot-on British wit without even breaking a sweat. I’m not sure if you know, though, but there actually happens to be tons of BLOODTHIRSTY ZOMBIES in this stellar piece of film.
