I feel compelled to not only wish Devin Faraci at CHUD.COM a belated happy birthday, but thank him profusely for mentioning Shaun Of The Dead in his top ten movies of all time.
The following quote is a very sweet thing to say. And I feel the same way about people’s responses to Raising Arizona, Evil Dead 2 and a few others. Basically, if you don’t like Bugsy Malone, I am not sure we could ever be friends.
I’ve found Shaun of the Dead helpful in life, as every person I have ever met who didn’t like the movie isn’t worth knowing. It’s an unbelievable litmus test and it’s never failed me.
Read the rest of his article and list (which includes my all time favs, Duck Soup, Annie Hall and the 1978 Dawn Of The Dead*) below.
Thanks Devin. Much appreciated. Great company to be in.
