Paul made me laugh…alot!

Two men and a small grey alien lit up by an spotlight

I love Sci-Fi. I love Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. So I was going to watch this movie, even though the posters and trailers were sort of lame.  And although it is not the same caliber as Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz (which are caliber super awesome!) it is pretty funny.

Simon and Nick wrote it and they have a special chemistry that is a pleasure to watch.  Then Kristin Wigg shows up–(who is quickly becoming one of my favorite comedians)–and adds the right amount of crazy and some of the best lines.  Add Jason Bateman, Seth Rogen, Bill Hader and a few surprises and you have a fine company of funny people. 

I loved all the sci-fi geek references–well…because I am a sci-fi geek. 🙂  It all seemed plausible too–two nerds that end up having a true close encounter–it’s all very clever.  There some flat moments and the pacing could have been a bit tighter, but it’s not enough to decrease the fun factor. 

And sometimes that is all you want from a movie–a good, fun time.  Thanks, Paul!

About nediunedited

Who is nediunedited? A lover of cinema since the age of seven! All kinds–all genres. Films (TV and Books, too) have shaped my life–they were my escape, my inspiration and even my first role models. I do not rate my films in the traditional sense (no stars, grades, etc.)–instead I give you my opinion and my take on it–I do not give traditional plot summaries either, because I want you to go in clear–ready for your own experience. There is nothing better than discovering a fine film, without any other influence. (Personally, when I want to really see something I practice media shut out–I refuse to watch too many trailers, viral promos, reviews, etc–I have been known to cover my eyes and ears in the theater during trailers–LALALALA!) That’s me–hope you come by and visit! I will definitely make the rounds and find some of you out there, too.
