Seen it before? No.
To go from a classic to this was really far-reaching for us...but since Daniel would have been terrified of the gore we saved it for after we put him in bed. Of course I must admit that I didn't want to see this movie from the very beginning...and by that I mean 2004 when it came out. I was like, "Um, no thanks." So now I find myself in a strange situation where I must eat my words because I actually rather enjoyed it.
Simon Pegg is so cute as the hero. Even after a break-up he still wants to save his 'girlfriend'. I love Bill Nighy too! Especially when he confesses he just wanted to be a good role-model for Shaun. So sweet! I even liked the fact that there was a Bizarro Seinfeld moment with Shaun and his friend Yvonne as they tried to flee the zombies...why they didn't just join forces is a mystery because that would have been pretty entertaining I think.
What I hate to admit was my favorite part of the film. See, I am a very mean person...especially since I really rather couldn't wait until the Dave character finally bit the big one...and in the most gory way possible!
Other notable scenes:
- Ed and Shaun discussing which records they could toss at oncoming zeds
- Shaun and Ed discussing the plan for what to do with Philip and how to rescue Shaun's loved ones
- At the very beginning of the movie when Shaun and Liz are talking at the bar and Ed is playing the video game...just watch the movie!
Would I see it again? Hell Yes!
Would I add it to my collection? Um, my birthday is in March if someone wants to get this for me! =)
