Zombies of Mass Destruction: This one surprised me at SIFF last year. Mixing elements of Raimi-esque gore with clever political humor, this ain’t your typical Zombie movie. It still has all the stuff you love about zombies, plus the added horror of small town/small-minded America. It’s really great you guys, and I can’t wait to add it to my collection.
Talhotblond: Creeptastic! Director Barbara Schroeder managed to track down one of the most unbelievable true-life stories ever and put it on film. Sure, there’s a few things that don’t work (like that fact that the victim is narrating the movie – a la Christian Slater’s latest comeback TV show, The Forgotten), but that doesn’t really matter because the people involved in this tale are SO crazypants that you forgive its flaws. So so so so sad, but also totally fascinating.
Mad Men: Season 3: It’s true that the 3rd season started off a little slow, but it definitely pulled it together at the end. Don Draper’s still a handsome tortured cheater, Betty’s still a whiney spoiled housewife, and the firm is still being controlled by the uptight Brits. Thankgod lovely Joanie is back to save the series (and the day). My only complaint: not enough Paul Kinsey. BUT, because of the lawnmower incident, I will love this show forever and ever.
