One of the best movies we’ve seen in the past few weeks is Paul, from Simon Pegg and Nick Frost (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz). Let me just say these two have not yet disappointed me. Paul is a fun, nerdy comedy that makes you laugh and leave the theater smiling. One of the things I loved about it was that if you watch a lot of Sci Fi or Fantasy movies there are a lot of in jokes. Star Wars references abound, among other things and are nicely played. If you are looking for a fun road trip Sci Fi film, this is it.
Basic Plot: Two British sci fi fans attend Comic Con in San Diego and follow it up with a road trip to all the alien hot spots in the mid west. Along the way they find an actual alien, Paul, and hide him from the government who is out to get him back. He just wants to go home.
Another of my recent favorites is Tangled. Adorable, Quirky Disney with beautiful scenes and decent music. 🙂
What’s your favorite movie this week? Have you seen either of these?
