Hey, at least you sat through it once.

You should be more de-sensitised to the gore and violence the more you see it.

I didn't mind the gore, I just don't like zombies. The movie was a lot more serious than I thought it would be. Especially the last 1/2 hour. It was still very good though.

Indeed, but they shuffle along very slowly, you can take ages to decide either to throw stuff at them, or run away.

Then there's the fact that they make great accompaniment when singing Grandmaster Flash's White Lines.

Not quite so scary now, huh?

I thought that the movie was a little scary in places but always in a quite funny way.  What I thought of the movie I hear you cry?  Well, I totally agree that it was like watching an episode of Spaced particularly before the zombies made their arrival.  As for the entire movie, I dunno in some ways I was a little disappointed.  Maybe because I went there excpecting a feature length episode of Spaced and that isn't what I got.  There were some bits that I found disturbing rather than funny like when
  There was a lot to the is move that made me smile but very few moments where I laughed out loud.  I really think I need to see it again and definitely will be at least renting it when it becomes available.  I really enjoyed the bit parts played by many of Britains finest indie comedy actors.  On the whole I would reccomend going to see it but don't go excpecting 'Spaced: The Movie' cos you simply won't get it, well maybe for the first half hour but not after.

Although, to be honest, why would you want Spaced: The Movie? Spaced is a top show but I thought the whole point of it was to cram a big screen style into a TV format.

Also, that second distubing part that you mentioned was very cool.  big grin I don't think the film was meant to be an hour and a half of pure comedy, but a mixture of other elements as well to make the film a bit more emotional and/or horrific, so that it doesn't end up being a complete goofball spoof like Scary Movie. And it worked on me at least.

I pretty much agree with everything you just said.  I just left feeling a little disappointed.  Still a mighty fine movie though.

I agree, it wasn't as funny as Spaced is but then again it wasn't meant to be. There were a few laugh out loud bits for me

Do you know what I like most about it? Is the fact that it's so grounded. Unlike Hollywood films, you make a direct connection with these characters. It felt like it could be you this is happening to...

I haven't been as articulate as I would like, but I guess you'll understand what I'm getting at.

Yeah that one of the many awesome things about Simon Peggs work.  In both Spaced and Shaun of the Dead.  You are always thinking "that's my life there!".  Apart from the zombies and stuff obviously.

Agreed, the laugh out load moments were few, there were plenty of smile/chuckle moments, and a few serious moments.

However, what's interesting is that this may also be down to Pegg's comedic style.  When he was on Jonathon Ross, one of the best Spaced moments (the first play-gun fight in Tim & Daisy's flat) was shown, and there was only a ripple of studio-audience laughter (when I'd expected uproarious laughter).  Although that also could be that Jonathan Ross' audience are philistines.

The injection of seriousness in the movie is what makes it for me.  Especially during the movies' more poigniant moments.

People say that it's a Zombie movie spoof and I couldn't disagree more, just because they made a comedy based around a zombie take-over, doesn't make it a spoof.  Like Spaced, it's laden with homages and references to other (Zombie) movies.  Lines are lifted and referenced from Day/Dawn/Night/Evil (of the) Dead, as well as the previously mentioned poke at 28 Days Later.

Therefore, I'd call it a homage movie (or "zomage", perhaps   wink).  We couldn't get nearer to Spaced: The Movie, without naming the characters Tim, Daisy and Mike.  Really.

Yeah.  If playing Resident Evil when totally out of ammo has taught me anything it is that zombies are lame and easy to avoid unless you are absolutely swarmed by them.  Even then when you have the knack you can dodge them.  And I bet in real life you wouldn't be trying to avoid them in corridors that are the width of about a person and a half either.

Yeah I see Shaun Of The Dead and I thought it was brilliant, I donít get the Spaced references a lot because I never seen the TV show.

I might get Spaced on DVD some time.

In other news, anyone spot the reference to 28 Days Later at the end of Shaun? Hilarious!

Hey that would be so cool to make your own movie and have some of your friends to put in just what Simon did. idea of your movie and who will be in it Melll?

Oh yeah I forgot about the end bit of the film. I havenít spotted the reference to 28 Days because I have not seen the movie but the rest of the scenes in the end where really cool.

I don't have a movie, really.  I might, if I could be bothered to write one, but I was illustrating a point.

Perhaps my favourite reference in Shaun, is the reference to Old Skool Hip-Hop, something I love also: ("It's not HipHop, it's Electro"), the reason being, it's fairly certain that the premise is rooted in reality:

In Spaced, Simon does a few Breakdance moves and references in the commentary that he used to part of a Breakdance group, therefore Street Sounds Electro probably is the second record he ever bought.

Fantastic.

I seen the first couple of episodes of Spaced and after I saw the first episode, I started to love it.

It was a neat idea when Tim and Daisy first met each other in a cafť. Both of them find a flat for each other pretending to be a couple. Then we meet new characters and we learn more about them as the episodes develop.

 There were some good scene from the episodes like the Scooby Doo reference, Tim and the others asks Daisy to come to the party upstairs, Timís zombie dream, the paintball sceneÖ. Oh I canít remember any funnier scene at the moment. I have to watch more later.

My fave characters so far are Tim and Daisy. Mike, Twist, Brain, and Marsha are ok. If I see them with more scenes then I might like them more.

Well I am going to watch some more tonight. Expect some more reviews from me very soon

I think the best outtake is when Pegg gets electrocuted on the toaster in S2.

I liked the dance version to Star Wars.

The Matrix bit in S2 Ep4 is definately my favourite reference. The extra Subtitles on the DVD come in handy too, I never realised just how many references were in Spaced before I watched it with those on.

Hey, check out all the other robot references (listed on the "Boot-up" just before Mike takes off the cover): Chock-A-Block, Bertha, etc.

 The clubbing episode (Episode 6) has to be one of my favourite half hours of TV. Ever.   big grin

I absolutely love that episode! I just love the clubbing scenes and the way people follow Mikeís dance moves where just great.

Are the dance tracks from the club are in the Spaced sound track?
