2 Reel Quirky Cats Collaboration

Uhm…Cockneys vs Zombies (2 Reel Quirky Cats June (P)review Nr 1)

(A Random Trailer (P)review)

Clue_CockneyZombiesFull

So…yes…uhm…well…hmmm….wow….I don’t know how to start this one. Maybe, let me say that collaborating with other bloggers broadens one’s horizons. Firstly, this month’s topic of “Horror Comedy”, selected by our June guest blogger Shanannigans of Reads and Reels, is a genre I’ve never really watched. Secondly, that’s exactly why this blogging community is so awesome…I’m being exposed to movies (and genres) I’ve never even heard of, or, rather, never taken much note of. So, while we’ve giving Shanannigans some time to get her zombies ducks in a row, my collaborator in crime, Realweegiemidget has selected her choice for this topic…tada…Cockneys vs Zombies.

What’s it about? Actually, I don’t know. I wasn’t concentrating on the story. But, I was having a good chuckle throughout the trailer (here I need to tell you that I’m not big into comedy. Even less into horror). Oh my! The two grandad-and-his-walker scene snippets are just something. And, I’ll never think of certain fashion brands the same either 😉 (I need to confess, I’ve picked a slightly different trailer from what Realweegiemidget gave me – just for the grandad parts.)

The British are great at comedy (I need to rephrase my previous comment here to “here I need to tell you that I’m not big into comedy except the wonderful art of British comedy”. The horror comment still stands though) and they might just pull this one off too. In fact, I am quite tempted to watch this one. It looks like good, mindless, non-so-scary fun.

cropped-cat2Head on over to Realweegiemidget Reviews (here) for her take on this comic bit of horror (or is it horrific bit of comedy?) and then join us on Twitter (@2ReelQuirkyCats) for your zombish comments. Have fun! By the way, thanks for broadening my horizons with your selection, Realweegiemidget.

Oh…and, because it’s a new month and so a new genre of reviews we have a poll for you. Vote for your favourite Horror Comedy movie of those we’ve put forward and we’ll tackle that one at the end of the month:

What we 2 Reel Quirky Cats are up to…

Introducing the 2 Reel Quirky Cats
(by me and ad-libbed in bold by Realweegiemidget)

Well, I guess it is about time we reveal what we’re up to. It all started one dark and stormy night one normal afternoon when Realweegiemidget and I happened to be sharing comments around our guilty pleasure confessions We’d previously shared a mutual appreciation of Leonardo DiCaprio (as girls do) But then guilty pleasures are a different matter..). Tentatively at first, testing the embarrassment waters and then more confidently – it dawned on us…we all have those films we watch because…we like them no matter how low the ratings or general opinion. Confessing to liking these films is embarrassing as turning up at a Star Trek convention as Princess Leia.  And after sharing a few of our more obscure guilty pleasures, we found some new films to check out.  Or those actors and actresses we’ll watch in anything, and we mean anything (I am so guilty of that and she’s not the only 1!). We know for a fact you do too. Come on…admit it. You know you want to.

Bring ’em on. All those film previews, be they the oldies or the newbies. Doesn’t matter. We’ll give you the trailer, a wee summary of the plot and a brief review from each of us (which you can find both here and over on Realweegiemidget‘s blog via links we’ll conveniently provide). We’ll also let you add your two tweet’s worth on Twitter, here.

First under the spotlight on 20th May is RealWeegieMidget‘s choice (with Thoughts all Sorts confessing her guilty pleasure with one of it’s stars in an other guilty pleasures themed review soon. And, if you’ve any film previews you want us to review, send us a comment on our WordPress pages or a direct message.). Here you go:

Oh? Sorry. We forgot to have someone backstage to open the curtain. Drat. You’ll have to wait a teeny tiny bit longer. Until then, we’ve listed some of our other Guilty Pleasures below…let us know which one we should pick for June or better yet, add your own.

Don’t be self conscious. Don’t feel judged. We’ll share ours so feel free to share yours. Nobody will think any lesser of you. In fact, who doesn’t like some swooning over the films we secretly love?

Hear ye, hear ye!

Behind the curtain there be…

(Shhhhhhhhhhh…)

Guilty pleasures to be found.

The curtain will reveal all soon

but for now all we can say is…

…join RealWeegieMidget and me, Thoughts all Sorts, as we explore the films, actors and actresses we enjoy just…because we can.

The plan is to pick a film, give you the trailer and then a review from each of us (that’s here on WordPress). Then tune in to @2ReelQuirkyCats on Twitter and join in the fun.

First film announcement to follow soon.

Can’t wait to see you all!
