Shaun Of The Dead - 2004


I love this film. In an era of silly remakes, big budget flops and lame t.v. shows on the big screen, it's refreshing to see a movie that's clever, engaging and funny. Rent it or buy it for $9.99 at Best Buy - but see it, you won't regret it, unless you have zombie phobia.
Shaun is guy who has a friend Ed. Ed has no other friends and this causes problems with Shaun and his girlfriend, Liz. Simple story, boy has girl, boy has big loud oaf friend, boy loses girl, boy gets girl back while fighting a horde of zombies. It's like something out of Aeschylus. What separates this film from all the crap coming out of Hollywood is that someone went to the trouble of writing a good story with fleshed out characters (if you forgive the pun). If you liked Eating Raoul you'll like this one too.
