Flight Of The Living Dead

Snakes on a plane? That shit is straight up played out, yo. Zombies on a plane tho? Now that’s something I can get behind!

This trailer makes “Flight Of The Living Dead” (formerly “Plane Dead”) look so horrible that it might end up being hilarious. Fighter jets that are obviously models? Hello Ed Wood! Firing machine guns inside an airliner at 30,000 feet? Holy suspension of disbelief, Batman!

Honestly, if I didn’t love zombies and B movies and I saw this trailer, I’m pretty sure I would be out. So it’s a good thing that I do, I guess… ;)

I guess the burning question for me is, when in the hell is this coming out?

Experimental Jet Set

For somebody who spends most of his free time jockeying a laptop, I’ve actually got a semi-busy social week ahead of me:

  • Tomorrow night is April’s BarCamp LA Geek Dinner at Shakey’s in Hollywood. While I’m not so much of a fan of Shakey’s grub, I’m really looking forward to hanging out with the BarCampers again.
  • Friday brings the Helvetica screening at USC. I managed to pick up a ticket when they were announced — and it would seem that I have to pay $25 at the door as I didn’t have to pay anything when I RSVP’ed. Part of me is debating going to the Laguna Beach screening instead tho. Tickets are still available for the 9PM show and they’re only $15 via PayPal. Decisions, decisions…
  • Sunday morning, I hop a flight to Oakland for a well deserved micro-vacation in San Francisco. It’s really more of a weekend trip than a vacation, but I’m going to be doing my fair share of relaxing. My Monday afternoon is spoken for — I’m supposed to be getting lunch with Andy (and hopefully Leonard) on the Yahoo! campus — but if you’re up for hanging out, drop me a direct message on Twitter (or an IM for that matter). I’ll try to squeeze in some face time with as many folks as I can before I see LCD Soundsystem with Frazier on Monday night and fly home for work early Tuesday morning.

See? That’s a busy week for the likes of me — but I’m looking forward to it…

Helvetica

I know that I’ll be more than a little geeked over seeing Helvetica when it finally comes out. I don’t want to have to wait for the DVD tho, so I hope there’s a screening in LA that I can catch before that happens. Guess I better add their blog to my feed reader and stay caught up with their announcements…

Children Of Men

Were it not for my brother mentioning it the other night, I don’t know when I would have been clued into Children Of Men. And now I want to see it, badly. As someone who is a fan of movies and books about dystopian futures and whatnot, I’m seriously all over this.
