It would have been quicker to learn Spanish.
Over the weekend, I saw a mildly funny movie called The Last Lovecraft
. It's billed as being in the style of Shaun of the Dead
. It's pretty good, but not great; most of the humor is derived from the well-known fact that geeks are awkward social misfits who live with their parents. That gets a bit tiresome. But other than that, it's a nice story of ordinary people triumphing over an extraordinary threat. It's got some nice special effects, and a clever animated summary of the Cthulhu Mythos.
