I normally don’t do film reviews but after watching Paul I felt it was appropriate. Like many I have been a fan of the Simon Pegg/Nick Frost team since Shaun of the Dead. When I first saw the trailer for Paul I wasn’t interested until I saw they were involved. On was on the fence regarding Seth Rogen as the alien due to his lackluster performance in The Green Hornet.
Paul nicely bridges the gap between mainstream film and geek chic. The film is clearly an homage to both Steven Spielberg and George Lucas as references are made to their films throughout. Some are quite subtle, such as the music playing in the redneck bar.
