    The Cure: Trilogy

    BloodflowersΒ (2000) hasn’t aged that well for me, coming off as a pale comparison of earlier work, but the performances of Pornography (1982) and Disintegration (1989) are excellent. The camerawork work is fine but the editing is a bit annoying at timesβ€”too many quick cuts to give the appearance of excitement. The surround mix is also a bit vocal-heavy, and could use more low end, but I’m nitpicking. I would have loved to have been at these shows (fortunately I did see The Cure live in 2004 and 2016, two of the best shows I’ve ever attended).

    It's difficult for me to fathom that Shaun Of The Dead (2004) is already fifteen years old. All the jokes and references still land, the dialogue is incredibly quotable and relatable (and the callbacks clever), the editing and story beats still impress, you care in one way or another for all the characters, and the film is ridiculously fun for the entirety of its runtime.Β SOTD is basically a perfect film, and, along with Re-Animator and The Return Of The Living Dead (both 1985), is one of the Top 3 zombie comedies ever.
