Things not to do in LA

Survival of the Dead is a terrible terrible terrible movie.

This movie is so devoid of any practical acting or common sense it's just stupid. It's not even funny stupid. It's horse rectum being eaten by vultures. The plot makes no sense. With terrible problems like a Irish island off the coast of the United States. It's sad to say the father of the zombie movie has finally lost it, but he has. He recently spoke at LA film school and said if Survival did well he'd make more. That ain't happening.

Survival of the Dead is playing at the Nuarte Theater, don't waste your money on it.

Also watch out for Beetle Queen Conquers Tokyo. I'm always down to see a Japanese culture movie. This one is about the strange world of beetle collecting. It would be a nice and easy film to enjoy except the director is a preachy hippy chick. Interweaving bug larvae and bugs just flying around without any context doesn't make a movie enjoyable. The director thought it be nice to cut away from the documentary at time to just show bugs that have nothing to do with the documentary.
