Wedding day

Ed and His Awful Commentary Track

So I did go downstairs, and I discovered Nate and Lance watching House of Flying Daggers, which I wasn't in the mood for, so I went back upstairs and watched the commentary for Ed and His Dead Mother.

Ed and His Dead Mother is a great little film which most people have never even heard of. The short, sweet, one-sentence review would read "Complications set in when hardware store owner Ed Chilton (Steve Buscemi) pays to have the body of his beloved mother reanimated." I like to recommend it to people who couldn't sit through Peter Jackson's Dead Alive since the plot is essentially the same, 'cept momma's eating puppies in rural Iowa, not people in New Zeland. Think Twin Peaks with a zombie. The kind of zombie who greets you after work with milk and cookies. Mom's played by Miriam Margolyes who played Professor Sprout in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, which is probably not much of a selling point, but there you go.

Anyway, certain people should simply not be allowed to do movie commentaries, and this small (282k) MP3 will show you why.
