Paul (2010)

I was looking forward to seeing this film as I am a big fan of Simon Pegg and Nick Frost's previous ventures in to film in Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz. I was not disappointed by this film at all, the sci-fi references alone made the whole thing worth watching and I cannot wait to see it again and see the references I most likely missed.

This is a must see for all Science fiction film fans, I have to say that the Seth Rogan factor did not interfere with my enjoyment as he is only in it as a voice. The geek in me rejoices at the twists and turns and the references within some of the scenes actually made me laugh out loud and curl up with enjoyment.

This is a 5 star masterpiece to science fiction and comedy and a must see for all fans of the genre the references alone if not the story will blow you away.


  1. I totally, completely and utterly agree with you!
    Paul was a joy to watch, I grinned for most of the film and loved all the geeky references and just like you I am looking forward to watching it again as I am sure quite a few passed me by.

    One of the MUST SEE film of this year for me!

  2. Well thank you me ole mukka,
    I shall actually make the effort to go see this now. I'd liked what I'd heard already, but your review, plus Karodes comment above, has sealed the deal.

    Keep the reviews coming :))
