... movie reviews

On Saturday night we went to see Shaun of
the Dead. It was great! Good acting, clever script...
Overall, it's just brilliantly executed.
I think my favorite aspect was all the little things going on in the
background near the beginning of the film, before Shaun has figured
out what's going on, when he's too preoccupied with the stuff going on
in his life to notice.
I've never seen any serious (not trying to be funny) zombie movies,
but I suspect that I probably would have found them more funny than
scary anyway... Shaun of the Dead does a great job of playing
up exactly the aspects that make the genre funny in the first place,
while also creating believable characters that we care about.
