    Klavenlessness, for even a weekend, is a violation of my fundamental humor rights.

    I didn’t see much of Night of the Living Dead; was in the theatre, in my seat in the dark, with a jacket hiding me from the screen. Still the most terrifying movie of my youth. The screams of the audience were enough.

    Ben was, of course, a sequel to Willard.

    The comment on zombie films is I think correct as well. The whole idea is a satanic parody of the Resurrection.

    As for Andy Serkis- if you have not seen the 1999 Oliver Twist in which he plays Bill Sikes, you need to.

    Now, about the Song of Roland (and other Crusade Epics like Willehalm, for example): I think there we have a strong tendency in the west to see the best and most noble even in the enemy. One of the core ideas in The Song of Roland is that there are noble men fighting on both sides and real tragedy is that they die fighting each other.

    Well, if you want to really “feel uncomfortable” watching Gone With the Wind and observing the “complexity of this relationship” between Rhett and Scarlett, try the very popular all female live musical version of it in Japan.
