Movies

Our regular Thursday afternoon ritual (lunch and beer at The Alamo followed by a 2-hour snooze at the movies) has been disrupted for the last couple of weeks. Last Thursday BetterArf was in London, and yesterday there was absolutely nothing on worth watching - out of about 15 movies that are currently showing, there is not one that either of us was remotely interested in seeing.

So we bought a couple of DVDs and stayed in watching those. A little-known thing called 'Four Weddings and a Funeral' was practically being given away in the cheapie bin. Amazingly, I have never seen this film before. It was quite good really.

But that was the B movie, the main feature of the evening was 'Shaun of the Dead'. I'd sort of vaguely heard of it in passing. I think it may have been shown here for about 10 minutes. It's not a film with any kind of global appeal, unless you are interested in the almost squalid 'ordinary Englishness' of things. Not that plagues of blood-sucking zombies are that common in England. Very funny, highly entertaining. Buy it now!

I agree that Shaun of the Dead is excellent. "A love story with zombies". But I wasn't impressed that my nervous 12 year old saw it at a friends during a sleep over - can't blame him for keeping the mother up till 2am - serves her right!
