On October 7, Kevin live-tweeted the neo-classic zom com Shaun of the Dead, starring Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, recently released on Blu-ray. Here’s a log, complete with time-code for your home-viewing pleasure.
So the SHAUN OF THE DEAD Blu-ray has a Zomb-o-Meter trivia function in U-Control. We’ll see if it’s any good. Pressing PLAY now…
SHAUN OF THE DEAD 01:30 – The first scene is a tutorial of British swearing.
SHAUN OF THE DEAD 03:30 – Apparently Shaun’s definition of a good restaurant is one where you can look at fish… like Red Lobster.
SHAUN OF THE DEAD 04:45 – How can anyone who watched this movie cast Simon Pegg in RUN FAT BOY RUN and not Nick Frost.
SHAUN OF THE DEAD 05:00 – That was the most intense teeth-brushing scene I’ve ever seen.
SHAUN OF THE DEAD 07:00 – the sure sign of a quality movie is dropping a fart joke in before the 10-minute mark.
SHAUN OF THE DEAD 09:00 – Apparently a guy who works at his store is named Ash. A nod to Evil Dead, maybe?
SHAUN OF THE DEAD 09:45 – There’s no I in team, but there’s an I in pie… and meat pie. Come to think of it, there’s a ME in meat pie.
SHAUN OF THE DEAD 10:45 – Ah, Bill Nighy as Shaun’s step-dad… without his Mr. Magoo glasses.
SHAUN OF THE DEAD 11:45 – How old do you have to be to stop correcting people when they refer to your step-dad as your dad.
SHAUN OF THE DEAD 12:45 – This is why this movie couldn’t take place in NYC. Because a homeless guy eating a pigeon wouldn’t look strange.
SHAUN OF THE DEAD 16:00 – There’s got to be more than two restaurants in this town.
SHAUN OF THE DEAD 18:55 – Pig snacks? What the F are pig snacks? Help me out, my tweeps from the UK…
SHAUN OF THE DEAD 19:45 – These wacky transitions make me feel like I’m in SNATCH… I’m talking the movie, you pervs.
SHAUN OF THE DEAD 20:30 – Cockasidal maniac??? That’s a new one.
SHAUN OF THE DEAD 21:45 – I will say that the ironic foreshadowing dialogue is pretty awesome in this movie.
SHAUN OF THE DEAD 22:55 – Simon Pegg and Nick Frost prove that just because you’re wearing a cap sideways doesn’t make you cool.
SHAUN OF THE DEAD 25:30 – I’d like to say I’ve never slept upright in a chair or written “Sort your life out” on a to do list, but I can’t
SHAUN OF THE DEAD 26:20 – I’d like to think that I would notice the zombie apocalypse has occurred long before Shaun does in this film.
SHAUN OF THE DEAD 27:20 – Coke and an ice cream drumstick… breakfast of champions.
SHAUN OF THE DEAD 27:50 – Shaun walking to the store ignorant of the zombie apocalypse is simply awesome. Awesome.
SHAUN OF THE DEAD 28:25 – Did he say “chart topping” or “tart chopping.” Either would be appropriate for this movie.
SHAUN OF THE DEAD 30:15 – Impaling a tresspasser. Wow, he’s lucky she’s a zombie.
SHAUN OF THE DEAD 30:50 – That’s the fattest zombie since Zombieland.
SHAUN OF THE DEAD 33:00 – “Removing the head or destroying the brain.” So you can stop a zombie by showing them Dane Cook movies?
SHAUN OF THE DEAD 34:20 – Would killing zombies be easier with CDs instead of vinyl. I know a lot of people swear by vinyl.
SHAUN OF THE DEAD 36:30 – Who would you call first during the zombie apocalypse?
SHAUN OF THE DEAD 36:50 – “We may have to kill my step-dad.” Sadly, this has been said without the advantage of the zombie apocalypse.
SHAUN OF THE DEAD 38:00 – Mum and Liz are pretty happy about the dead zombie step-dad in Shaun’s planning vision.
SHAUN OF THE DEAD 38:20 – If I just killed me some zombies, I’d wipe their blood off my face. But that’s just me. I also wipe down toilets.
SHAUN OF THE DEAD 39:50 -If you find yourself in a horror movie, never look in a mirror of a medicine cabinet. This just leads to bad things
SHAUN OF THE DEAD 40:45 – Even the teenage zombie is still good at soccer. So European.
SHAUN OF THE DEAD 41:30 – Yeah, that’s better zombie-killin’ music than listening to BBC radio.
SHAUN OF THE DEAD 42:35 – “He chased me around the garden with a bit of wood.” That’s a hell of a line, even though it’s not at all sexual
SHAUN OF THE DEAD 43:10 – Wait! Isn’t Shaun’s mum the former PM from DOCTOR WHO?
SHAUN OF THE DEAD 44:15 – If the zombie apocalypse happened, would you rather have a baseball bat or a cricket bat? I’d go w/ baseball.
SHAUN OF THE DEAD 45:20 – Zombie apocalypse or not, lying to your mom about your step-dad molesting you still won’t fly.
SHAUN OF THE DEAD 46:00 – Why don’t all the pop stars get together to make a song to raise awareness about zombies. #wearetheundead
SHAUN OF THE DEAD 51:00 – There are times I wish for a zombie apocalypse ’cause killin’ zombies would be really cathartic.
SHAUN OF THE DEAD 54:00 – Child locks on your car during the zombie attack is not necessarily proper safety.
Look what I found on my table while watching SHAUN OF THE DEAD… http://twitpic.com/kouyf
SHAUN OF THE DEAD 57:45 – Impressed that Shaun can find the Winchester through the neighborhood like that. Could you do that w/your fav bar?
SHAUN OF THE DEAD 58:30 – Is that Colin Mocherie as a zombie? I wonder if he tasted funny. #badpuns
SHAUN OF THE DEAD 59:40 – Apparently “lots” is an official measurement of zombies in the UK.
SHAUN OF THE DEAD 1:02:40 – It’s amazing that Ed has cell service during the zombie apocalypse. Who is his carrier? I might switch.
SHAUN OF THE DEAD 1:03:15 – Those biker zombie twins look like they just stepped out of a Doublemint ad gone horribly awry.
SHAUN OF THE DEAD 1:06:50 – Twigles? Apparently a British snack. I might have to visit the UK just to try the food from this film.
SHAUN OF THE DEAD 1:08:00 – “Would anyone like a peanut?” A line made famous by another film? Anyone know it?
SHAUN OF THE DEAD 1:10:00 – Is it significant that MTV went off the air during the zombie apocalypse? What about their 24-hour news?
SHAUN OF THE DEAD 1:12:00 – Queen music and pool cues just don’t cut it for zombie killing. They should listen to Supertramp instead.
SHAUN OF THE DEAD 1:15:30 – I once knew an old lady who kept used tissues up her sleeve, and she wasn’t a zombie. It was really gross.
SHAUN OF THE DEAD 1:18:45 – Gotta give Simon Pegg some credit. He’s really throwing down the acting for the killing mum scene.
SHAUN OF THE DEAD 1:19:50 – They’ve used the word “twat” about a dozen times in this movie. I think I might pick that up. Twat or treat!
SHAUN OF THE DEAD 1:22:20 – So it takes about half a day for zombies to figure out how to break windows.
SHAUN OF THE DEAD 1:22:30 – Wow. Ripping the guts right out of him. Haven’t seen that since GAR’s DAY OF THE DEAD
SHAUN OF THE DEAD 1:23:20 – The zombie killing climax is pretty freaking badass in this movie.
SHAUN OF THE DEAD 1:24:00 – That’s not a ketchup packet on Ed’s arm. (If you’ve seen HOT FUZZ, you know what I’m talking about.)
SHAUN OF THE DEAD 1:25:25 – Impressive. Shaun’s a better shot with bullets randomly exploding on a bar instead of in a gun.
SHAUN OF THE DEAD 1:29:15 – Bookended with fart jokes. This film is sheer genius!
SHAUN OF THE DEAD 1:31:00 – This is the real reason to support the armed forces… they’ll save your ass during a zombie apocalypse.
SHAUN OF THE DEAD 1:32:00 – The best part of this film has to be the TV programs at the end talking about Z-Day.
SHAUN OF THE DEAD 1:33:00 – The “dismissed” claimed of “rage-infected monkeys” is a hilarious toss-off to 28 DAYS LATER.
SHAUN OF THE DEAD 1:34:00 – A final message about zombies and video games, then ROLL CREDITS!
