Movie Review: Night of the Living Deb

This week I’ve got a goody, at least in my opinion. I’m reviewing Night of the Living Deb. Here’s what it’s about:

“After a girls’ night out, endearingly awkward Deb wakes up in the apartment of the most attractive guy in Portland, Maine. She’s thrilled, but she can’t remember much of what got her there. Pretty boy Ryan only knows it was a mistake and ushers her out the door… into a full-scale zombie apocalypse. Now, a walk of shame becomes a fight for survival as the mismatched pair discovers that the only thing scarier than trusting someone with your life… is trusting them with your heart.”

Okay, people, this is one that doesn’t deserve the whiny reviews. Lighten up. It’s a pretty damn fun romzomcom. If you’re late to this romantic zombie comedy label like me, it’s an actual thing in the Urban Dictionary. Maria Thayer who plays Deb was great in her part. She in particular made me laugh quite a few times. I also loved her friend.

I get really irritated when reviewers compare zombie comedy movies like this one to Zombie Land or Shaun of the Dead, and I saw a lot of that with Night of the Living Deb. STOP IT ALREADY! This movie is not trying to be either. It’s a corny romzomcom, and it’s cliche, but that’s part of it’s charm.

I’m really starting to enjoy the romzomcom, but I am a woman. Guys, if you don’t like romcom, why would you watch a romzomcom?

Anyway, I loved Night of the Living Deb. I laughed throughout. Give it a try.

My Rating: 4 out of 5

Back on EdMo

After 4 days off of doing about nothing this week, I’ve been back editing the last few days.  Am up to 19 hours, a few hours further than the challenge suggestion of 16.5. 

What did I do during my 4 days off, in between naps?  Comedy therapy via Trailer Park Boys. I’m a little embarrassed to say I’ve sat through a little over 3 seasons since last Friday. But, hey, laughter is the best medicine, right.

No surprise, Trailer Park Boys showed up as a recommended watch on Netflix streaming, and I’d already enjoyed a few episodes on cable. So last Friday evening, when I found myself too tired and drained to do anything, I pulled up the first couple seasons and watched and laughed and watched and laughed. During this bout of anemia I could have literally laughed myself into the grave. Okay, that’s not so funny.

Other thing I’ve been doing is some creative writing exercises in Write from the Heart: Inspiration & Exercises for Women Who Want to Write. These exercises have taken the place of my regular daily new writing, but what’s surprised me is that some of the stuff I’m writing could actually make some great short stories.

Off topic, found this bit from the book inspiring.

What matters is your ability to open up to the breathtaking and spectacular adventure that happens to be your life. Your job is to experience it, see it, feel it, live it, and write it down.

– in Write from the Heart by Leslea Newman,

Back to NaNoEdMo, I’ve not reached the point where editing flows easier, but does it ever, I wonder, like new writing does? Instead, I’m afraid I’m headed into the “I hate this story. Will this ever end.” doldrums. Will make the next 20 days a bit painful if it does.
