Aug 26th 2007 6:41PM Shaun of the Dead is not about zombies. It's a about a failed relationship that is regenerated through extremely difficult circumstances as the two parties mature while trying to flee an urban death trap and a widespread deadly disease. In this film it's viral depression, in Shaun it's zombies, but the main plot remains very similar.
And for that matter, an episode of Red Dwarf featured an alien that exuded a psychotropic substance that brought on instant suicidal mania, and that was actually quite funny too.

Aug 24th 2007 11:49AM And actually, the Silhouette camera was first used by NZ meat packers to check beef and mutton carcasses for shrinkage, so it went from that, to Gollum, to wound checking. I'm not sure which of those is the more bizarre industry leap...

Jul 1st 2007 10:00AM I'm looking forward to winning Engadget's most-entered contest ever. Because, you know, that higher the odds, the greater the glory. If that's true in battle, surely its true in lotteries and sweepstakes as well, right?
May 22nd 2007 8:59PM I think it would be kind of funny if I won, because I don't want this phone particularly desperately. I just need a new phone and think one o' these would work for me.
Apr 27th 2007 11:46PM The only thing that QT really has a handle on is pop culture of the 70s and 80s. I don't think he has enough respect for any history prior to the cheesy movies, tv, comics and music of that period, and there's no way he could do justice to real environments and real events.
Apr 27th 2007 11:01AM The only thing that really bothered me was the score, the no-roto lightsabers, and no ADR for "no blasters, no blasters!" And the VO script could have been punched up a tad...
Apr 12th 2007 11:19AM You can pretty much guarantee that QT doesn't watch any unsolicited films or read any spec scripts for just this reason.
