    "Who died and made you fucking king of the zombies?"- Ed

    I've wanted to watch Shaun of the Dead for a while, by never got around to it for some reason. So I figured I'd include it in my Horror marathon to give me an excuse to stop procrastinating and finally watch it. Well, lets just say I'm glad I did. Shaun of the Dead is…

    I think I may have underrated this film the first time I watched it. I still loved it, still had it rated five stars here on Letterboxd. Yet I've always said this is one of my least favorite films by Edgar Wright, but I really think that that's selling it short. While I still enjoy Hot Fuzz more, this is still a brilliant comedy that works just as well as a zombie movie in its own right.

    This has gotta…

    Zombies are only there to spice up the atmosphere when there is a romantic crisis (among many other things) Shaun has to handle.

    Shaun of the Dead is the first movie in the series now dubbed, The Three Favours Cornetto Trilogy*, and for many, this installment is the best. For good reason too, as it’s easily the funniest out of the three movies in my opinion. A fun and dare I say, uniquely English take on the zombie horror genre – I mean come on, what other nationality would consider their local pub the safest place to be during an invasion of the…

    Last year, I posited (via the intro and the conversation in this interview piece posted at Slant Magazine) that Edgar Wright takes the way dialogue in screwball comedies is written and spoken, and makes it visual. He starts each film by establishing a series of motifs (compositions, camera movements, lighting choices) and then spends the rest of the film repeating those images, altered slightly, to great comic effect (the same way, for instance, that the coffee advertisement dialogue in Christmas…

    Shaun looks like a grade B comedy at a first glance, but as you watch it you realise how expertly written, directed and acted it is. The writing is absolutely mind-blowing with so much reincorporation you will need to watch it ten times to find most of them! Edgar Wright's direction is stylish and well thought out. Simon Pegg gives his best performance as a man trying to sort out his life with the misfortune of being thrown into a…

    Oh God I can’t believe it’s been ten years. Still funny, still fresh; every time I see Edgar Wright’s major début it puts a huge grin on my face. This is one that has firmly cemented its place as an all time great comedy.

    Shaun of the Dead is a labour of love, and it shows. From the hilarious script through to the inventive edit and post-production, every aspect of the film has been carefully considered.

    I remember feeling a…
