Shaun of the Dead

Agents of SMOOCH 30: Shaun's Had a Rough Day

Our SMOOCHtacular Halloween month is ending with the modern classic and original ZomRomCom: 2004 Shaun of the Dead. Join our Agents as they search for love triangles and zombies on this spoOoOooOOoky mission. This movie is every bit as much a romance as it is a horror-comedy and is halfway to a musical with its precise choreography. Agents also discuss the Cornetto trilogy and reminisce about early 2000s technology. Will we make it to the Winchester? We got you covered with our kitchen implements and cricket bats.

But, um… you’ve got red on you.

Defocused 4: Human Progress Bar

Dan hurt himself. Joe enjoys both ketchup and mustard on his hotdogs. Neither of them really liked World War Z, but only one of them didn’t like Shaun of the Dead.

The Incomparable 164: Put In the Zom and Out Comes Com

Grab a pint and marinate your brain as we discuss the “Cornetto Trilogy,” three films by Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright that are linked in theme if not in characters: “Shaun of the Dead,” “Hot Fuzz,” and recent release “The World’s End.” Why aren’t there more smart genre comedies? How do Pegg and Wright so deftly handle different genres? How are these movies like the Commedia dell’arte? Why do Jason and Jeff want to punch Nick Frost, then hug him? Plus, we give even more Incomparable love to “Spaced.”
