"Just look at the face: it's vacant, with a hint of sadness. Like a drunk who's lost a bet."

Hellooooooo! Time for a break from all those heavy films, movie fans. Tonight, join Pete and Andy as we discuss the first of the Three Flavours Cornetto Trilogy (despite the fact that there are only two films thus far). Yes, we’re going to be chatting about Edgar Wright’s hilarious ode to zombie cinema, “Shaun of the Dead,” a film he co-wrote with star Simon Pegg. It’s a hilarious film that also works wonderfully as an homage to every zombie convention you can imagine. We talk about why it works so well, how it came to be, the hilarious cast (particularly our fave Bill Nighy), British manners, Edgar Wright’s filmmaking style, and the endlessly quotable lines. And yes, we quote them. Endlessly. Join us for a laugh. Now how’s that for a slice of fried gold? Yeeeee-aaahh, bo-iiieeee!

When the movie ends, our conversation begins.

We love movies. We've been talking about them, one movie a week, since 2011. It's a lot of movies, that's true, but we're passionate about origins and performance, directors and actors, themes and genres, and so much more. So join the community and let's hear about your favorite movies, too.
