He also wrote/produced Black Rock which is a pretty solid survival flick starring his wife (Jenny from The League) and Lake Bell. Both girls surprisingly bare it all in this one







Was bored yesterday, so I thought I would give this one a whirl. Big mistake. I just can't get into these kinds of movies. No Sharknado 3 for me......or 1 or 2 for that matter.

There's a shop that sells them a few miles away. They're quite good and they make different kinds including breakfast zombies, pizza zombies, Mexican zombies, etc. They are larger than in the recipe but you can also get a frozen dough to make the larger size. To test them out I located the small brick of Velveeta but also tried some shredded cheeses. Three were pepperoni pizza zombies which worked okay.

I will probably make my own dough from scratch using my bread machine since it even has the recipes for it and I can add some whole grain. These are handy because you can refrigerate or freeze them for later eating.

I recall reading your thoughts on it. IIRC, you hated it.

And this is one of the reasons this is the best thread at AVS.

Yes. and unless you get a free entry to the cinema, don't bother with it as the best scare/death is in the trailers. Even if you can completely ignore the annoying camera holding jock, the movie is still barely decent.

Hmm. The Gallows or Sharknado 3?, the fact that anyone is asking this question. OK Drink!!

Watched the New Zealand Vampire mockumentary, "What We Do In The Shadows" tonite.


Very original...more amusing than LOL.
Good acting throughout, with interesting characters.
Definitely worth a watch.

You deserve a break! I hope the digital detox goes well. I'd go insane. I start getting anxious when my phone battery gets below 30%.

Word, but I think the 70's would pretty much have most of the new stuff (now) beat for a while.


What a day, darth taking some time off after 10,000 posts and I received my first infraction/warning on AVS!
