I had such an incredible blast with this. Yeah, yeah it’s not an existentialist masterpiece (no shit), but it isn’t necessarily simplistic like most modern slapstick comedies. Shaun of the Dead is dumb fun for sure, but mashed with the admirable artistic talent that Edgar Wright possesses. These merits, although generally consisting of technical elements such as editing and music choices, supercharge his movies with life and energy. They’re never dull for a second. Isn’t that what a good comedy needs? Entertainment while also a representation of some pretty impressive filmmaking? Anyway, I will admit, it becomes exhausting and repetitive towards the last 25 minutes, but I didn’t feel bored. Overall, it’s goofy as hell, grotesque, extraordinarily well-made, and just an awesome ride all around.
8.0/10 (yeah, possibly a 7.5, but an 8 for now)
