"Some people never go crazy, what truly horrible lives they must lead."

The other day I sat in the border's literature section, opened one of his books and read about 50 pages before my wife found me.  The guy was brilliant.

sometimes all we need to be able to continue alone
are the dead
rattling the walls
that close us in.

I thoroughly enjoyed Ken Burns The Civil War last week on PBS. Coincided with the two recent anniversaries- start and finish are respectively April 12th and 9th.

It's digitally remastered and absolutely stunning in HD. The faces in the daguerreotypes are hauntingly familiar: those of present day Americans.

A lot to absorb so I hope they run it again.

My son and I just discovered Zombieland a couple of weeks ago.  We've been quoting "Rules" to each other ever since.

Our definite fav, "It's time to nut-up or shut-up!"

Puna, excellent movie choice. My wife has trouble getting through the first 30 minutes or so when it's really gross & violent, but after that she loves it. Surely you've seen Shaun of the Dead? The ultimate zomromcom, even better than Zombieland.

Another series I grew up watching. Think they'll put it out on BluRay sometime soon? I'd love to see that in HD.

Haven't seen Shaun yet.  The trailers look great!  We'll have to check it out...

And don't call me Shirley!   ;)

Ah and one more for you: Black Sheep. New Zealand Sheep-based Zombie film:
On a quiet New Zealand ranch, a genetic experiment has gone horribly wrong, transforming a calm flock of sheep into killers hungry for human blood in this outrageous comic gore-fest. Those bitten become ravenous were-sheep. As the body count rises, a desperate handful of outnumbered survivors take a last stand against the ovine onslaught. Who will live, and who will be the next victim of the vicious killer sheep?

The Legend of Hell House

Modern Horror. My skin crawled.

I agreed to go with my wife and son to see HP & TDH I on Friday night.  I am soooooo looking forward to sitting in the dark with hundreds of strangers coughing and sneezing all around me...  :P

The things a father has to endure to insure domestic tranquility...  ::)

Hah! I got you beat on that one. I was forced to sit through all of the Pokemon movies.

I am quite surprised that no one mentioned Star Wars (the 1st one, episode 4)
In no particular order:
Star Wars
Monty Python & the Holy Grail
Night of the Living Dead - I grew up 3 miles from the grave yard and one of my uncles was a zombie.
Stargate
Any Dracula movie w/ Christopher Lee and/or Peter Cushing
Alien
most of the Marvel Comics movies
The Creature From the Black Lagoon
The Day the Earth Stood Still (both versions)
And too many others to list here.

I invested in a really nice home theater system so I wouldn't have to sit in a room full of annoying people. I can drink all the beer I want while watching, and pause when I go to the bathroom.

Some of my favorite movies are;
Independence Day for sci fi
The Expendables for action
Blast from the Past for Comedy

I really like MOST of the super hero movies. Particularly the first Iron Man.
The last Superman movie sucked

For classics I like the 1953 version of War of the Worlds. Independence day was really just a modernized version of that. And very well done. The Tom Cruise version absolutely sucked

I do like the Jurassic Park movies

Mostly I like movies that really light up my big plasma tv and challenge my surround system  ;D
