Shaun of the Dead
Description: A quiet little comedy of manners movie about
people drinking tea and eating crumpets and speaking in English accents. No
wait. Make that a hilarious little zombie movie about the undead eating people
and the few remaining living drinking beer. The English accents part is true
For those who are familiar with the genre, there were quite
a few little jokes from other movies over the years. But really, whatís there to
know before hand. The dead walk. Sometimes being trapped in a dead end job can
feel like being undead. The soullessness of sitting on the bus with all the
other low end job zombies. Getting up to go to work every day. Doing the same
thing in mindless repetition. Going to the same places with the same people
every week because you just donít know what to do with your life.
Okay, thatís not my life now, but hey, Iíve worked retail
for minimum wage.
By turns hilarious, horrific, tense, and poignant this is a
great addition to the whole zombie oeuvre. If you know, I didnít feel incredibly
silly referring to the zombie oeuvre.
The dead walk. The living watch the walking dead on daytime
t.v. Good times.
