Shaun of the Dead on CinemaStix: Thanks babe


I am such a mark for short, smart video essays about all the beauty of movies, and my favourite YouTube channel for that shit right now is definitely CinemaStix. Their videos have the very worst titles, but still find the most insightful things to say about the most familiar films. 

And I don't just like the videos because they're about movies I adore like Shaun of the Dead, but because they can still show me new jokes I'd never noticed before (it's the dude who has women all over him). Shaun is nearly 20 years old - it was the first film I ever went to the movies with my future wife and I've probably seen it a hundred times, and it still has layers I never ever thought about.
