This is my first time watching it (yeah, yeah, I know). Definitely as good as people been saying. It was better than Hot Fuzz, which I saw at the theater when it came out, which was also good.
This is, officially, my second favorite film of all time.
Just finished watching Uwe Boll's Far Cry.
I expected pure crap and was not disappointed! Very lame in many parts but for those familiar with Boll's other flicks, this one isn't too bad compared to, say, Postal.
Amazing, this movie has aged so well. The complete absence of dialogue coupled with the awkward pauses between songs. The animation, Geldof's performance...this is a tremendous musical, simply because it is sooooooo dark and depressing.
Malcolm McDowell could eat babies and I will forgive him, simply because this is one of the greatest performances ever. I have watched this flick,and read the book, umpteen times...and they both just continue to be socially relevant to this day. What a tremendous finger to the eye of society, what 30+ years later???? If you have not seen this you have not seen one of the most brave movies ever made, is that right grammatically? Who cares, this is a must see.
BestBuy.com says it's available when I look at it...
Like I said, I saw Hot Fuzz at the theater when it came out and loved it, but Shaun just had so many brilliant moments.
The scene in which they think that they can kill zombies by throwing records at them? And then they take out their record case and start flipping through their record collection in order to decide which records are worth throwing at the zombies and which they should keep is BEYOND brilliant!
Let's throw "The Second Coming" chunky boy says...
Simon Pegg's character is like...no...I actually like that album...
They were talking about The Stone Roses Second Album, "The Second Coming," which most people disliked when it came out, but some people, like myself, and Simon Pegg's character actually liked, and well, whenever that cultural moment gets mentioned in a film, everyone wins, it was the '90's, you had to be there. Brilliant!
I remember The Stone Roses...I feel old...
And on top of that I LOVE Romero.
My parents went to see Day of the Dead and they were too cheap to get a babysitter so they dragged me to the theater when I was just a booger picking kid. They shouldn't had, but it changed my life and made me a zombie film fan. Lol!
