I love this time of year. It’s finally starting to cool off a little outside and the holidays are coming. I get excited thinking about all of the festivities of the fall and early winter months. Halloween is just around the corner and it puts me in the mood for costumes and scary stories. This week I think I’ll pick a “scary” movie.
My Pick of the Week: Shaun of the Dead (2004)
I don’t think this movie was scary as much as it was oddly humorous. I know a lot of people wouldn’t care for this movie, but I happened upon it one day while channel surfing, and I couldn’t turn it off!
From IMDb: Shaun is a 29-year-old with no real ambition in life, much to the consternation of his friends, family, and fed-up girlfriend. With only a loyalty to his lazy best friend Edgar, a dead-end job where his employees step on him, and the good-ol' days, Shaun isn't exactly putting his best foot forward. But when the flesh-hungry undead start to rise in numbers around modern-day London, Shaun must come to the rescue of his girlfriend and mother before all hell breaks loose. With loyal Edgar at his side to fight the good fight, the two will have to pave their way through zombie-ridden London as Shaun must take on the first real challenge in his life--with comical results
And a few Taglines:
It's just one of those days when you're feeling a little...dead.

A romantic comedy. With zombies.
In a time of crisis a hero must rise...from his sofa.

Since I'm on a Disney kick, this week I'm recommending one of my favorite Disney films. I say one, because I have many. In fact, I think I've adored every Disney flick ever made. Is it any wonder I write happily-ever-afters? This particular film stars a dog and cat and a too-cute-for-words hamster. As always I fell in love with the characters and heartfelt message of the story. Funny, thrilling, and, yes, it made me cry.
My Pick of the Week: Bolt (2008)
Here's one of my favorite scenes (one of many). Bolt learning how to do 'the dog face'.
