Time to escape – time to keep busy. I need some happy time.
The British-zombie-comedy-thriller, Shaun of the Dead was indeed a bloody riot. (Multiple puns intended. If you like the dry-witty pacing of an off-the-wall British comedy, you will love this movie. if you like blood-dripping zombie thrillers, you will love this movie. If you love hyphen-ridden-repetitious blogging, you will love this entry. 🙂
SOTD was great though. Simon Pegg is a perfect anti-hero. You may remember him as 1st Sgt. William Evans in HBO’s Band of Brothers. Nick Frost is the perfect sidekick – you may remember him from… well, nothing… but he is a wonky nutter in this.
Hidden within the amazing dry humor and side-splitting zombie parody is a comment on the brain-dead existence of going to work each day at the same cookie-cutter jobs. (Wow, three more hyphens in that sentence.)
If you want to have a good time, go see this movie. If you don’t wet your pants with laughter – maybe “you’re” the zombie.
RATING 9 out of 10
