Movie Review of Paul

Today's blog is going to be a movie review of the movie, Paul. This movie was written by Simon Pegg and Nick Frost who also star in the movie. My readers might remember these two from other movies they have done together: Shaun of the Dead, and Hot Fuzz. The movie starts out decades ago when Paul's spaceship crash lands on Earth. His ship killed a dog in the crash of which I personally did not approve. They could have killed a bird or even a cat, but not a dog! Then the movie moves on into the present time. Graeme Willy played by Simon Pegg and Clive Gollings played by Nick Frost are two friends attending the ComicCon as their "dream vacation". Both are big sci-fi fans, and Clive Gollings is an aspiring writer. After the ComicCon, the two rent an RV to tour the southwest area's famous UFO related locations: Area 51, and Roswell, New Mexico are part of the itinerary. Along the way, they meet up with a real space alien named Paul, whose voice is provided by Seth Rogan. They also "kidnap" a young woman at an RV park whose name is Ruth Buggs played by Kristen Wiig. They are being chased by federal agents led by Agent Zoil played by Jason Bateman. Paul is trying to get to the spot where he can take a spaceship back to his world. The movie is the story of what happened along the way. Will Paul make it to the spaceship or will the federal agents capture him first? I suggest you watch the movie to find out. It is a good movie except for the very beginning when the dog was killed. Being a dog myself, I did not care for that part!!! I did approve of Paul bringing a bird back to life and eating it alive--not the bringing it back part, but the eating it part. I think birds are evil! I give the movie 4 paws up and a tail wag.
