True Story...

About a week ago, finally fed up with my cable bill, I bought a Blu Ray player so that I could stream Netflix and all kinds of other junk.  I didn't own any Blu Ray disks at the time and figured at least I can still play my apparently antiquated DVDs on it.  Well, upon returning home from the store, I checked my mail and, sure enough, someone sent me my very first Blu Ray disk!  How jacked up is that, right?  The story behind that goes like this...

A few weeks ago, while on Facebook, I answered what I didn't know was a prize-winning trivia question from Mike Mutt Lavender.  I just thought he was having fun, little did I know that knowing the name Seven Zark Seven would win me my very first Blue Ray disk.  Mike messaged me for my address and, not to long later, while opening up my mail box, there was my prize.  So, props to Mike for making good on his promises.  Check him and his review page out on Facebook.

How was the movie, you ask?  Well, it's a zombie flick so that's usually a good thing.  It's called "Osombie" and it stars my new obsession Eve Mauro and was filmed in Utah.  I must say, it was a fun movie.  I never once glanced at the clock and asked, "When will this thing ever end?!" so there's that.

Eve Mauro, ladies & gentlemen...

You're welcome.

So, what it all about, you ask?  Well, the story goes a little something like this:  "Osombie" follows Dusty, a yoga instructor from Colorado on a desperate mission to save her crazy, conspiracy-theorist brother Derek, who is convinced Osama bin Laden is still alive. In Afghanistan, Dusty falls in with a NATO special forces team on a secret assignment. It turns out Derek is not so crazy after all, and that Osama has returned from his watery grave and is making an army of zombie terrorists. When the group crashes headlong into the growing zombie apocalypse, Dusty and the troops must find and destroy the root of the zombie insurgency before it infests the rest of the world.  I'm not exactly sure why one of the special forces guys always has to take his shirt off, but hey, I guess that was for the ladies.  As far as CGI blood & gore goes, it ranks better than any of the horrible movies I subjected myself to on the Sci-Fi Channel, you know, when I had cable?

Behold the trailer:

Overall, I enjoyed the movie for more than my obvious bias towards Eve Mauru and Mike's a stand-up guy in my book.

Keep it here, boppers.
