Jan. 1st, 2005 @ 06:17 pm Bringing in the new year with a must-see movie
A quiet night at home--the wife and the boy have colds, so we decided going out was not a good idea--and a rental.

Shawn of the Dead.

If you haven't seen this, get your ass to the rental store and get it. This was so much better than "The Bourne Conspiracy"--which was the wife's choice--it's not funny. My wife who thought she wouldn't like it, ended up watching it and pointing out things that I was missing.

It's simultaneously a great comedy, a great horror flick, and a great romance. It helps if you're an Anglophile because if you don't know much about the UK you'll not get a lot of the jokes, but it'd still be worth watching.

Oh, and if anyone can tell me if the line "Well, they were a bit bitey" was from another film (I'm envisioning another British horror spoof like say "An American Werewolf in London" but I can't place it there) or if I'm just remembering the line from the TV ad, I'd greatly appreciate it.

I returned it today and got "Garden State" and "Mean Girls". Should be fun.

I loved Garden State. jenniever didn't. Then again, I enjoyed The Bourne Supremecy on our plane ride back from Mexico, so go figure.

you know you are important when your relationship ends and then the world ends.

Over Christmas, Jeremy and I forced family members to watch Shaun of the Dead. Awesome, awesome movie. We saw it in the theater over the summer and immediately resolved to buy it the day it came out on DVD. :)
