I enjoyed a great double feature this weekend thanks to Netflix. First up was Ed Wood – a very enjoyable movie. I think it could best be described as a tragic comedy. The performances in the movie are wonderful. Martin Landau certainly deserves all of the accolades he received for this film. Ed Wood might not have known how to make a good movie, but his passion and love for movies shows through and that makes him a character you care about (and, yes, laugh at a bit too).
Next up was Shaun of the Dead. Oh my goodness, I love this movie. I’m not even a zed-word movie kind of gal (although the fact I’m a serious Anglo-phile might have helped), but this movie had me laughing over and over again. Someone on the Netflix site described it perfectly “Zombie Romantic Comedy” – how cool is that?
