    The 'Burbs 1989

    ★★★ Watched 05 Nov, 2015

    I’d have put Tom Hanks a close second after Bill Murray as the 80’s greatest on-screen comic but then he went and got all serious and broody. I get that after a certain age, you’re not going to be doing the broad slapstick and physical humor that made your career except… Murray kept doing it! What happened Hanks?

    Shaun of the Dead 2004

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    I've dreaded this moment for a long time. How do you quantify something that you love beyond reason? I've loved Shaun Of The Dead ever since I saw it in the theater for the first time. Actually, about ten minutes in, I was pretty certain that this was going to be one of my new instant favorites.

    I guess the main reason that I love it is that, of all horror movies, the zombie sub-genre is my favorite. Edgar Wright…
