Shaun of the Dead
Shaun of the Dead is a 2004 horror comedy film directed by Edgar Wright, co-written by Wright and Simon Pegg, starring Pegg and Nick Frost. Pegg plays Shaun, a directionless Londoner, caught in an apocalyptic zombie uprising; the film was a critical and commercial success and was nominated for a BAFTA. It is the first in Wright and Pegg's Three Flavours Cornetto trilogy, followed by 2007's Hot Fuzz and 2013's The World's End. Shaun is a salesman at an electronics store with no direction in his life, his colleagues disrespect him, he does not get along with his stepfather Philip, after he fails to get dinner reservations and suggests they go to the Winchester, the pub at which they spend most of their evenings, his girlfriend Liz breaks up with him. After the break-up, Shaun drowns his sorrows there with best friend Ed. At home, their housemate Pete, complains of a bite wound from a mugger and Shaun and Ed playing electro at four o'clock in the morning whilst he has to fill in at work. By morning, a zombie apocalypse has overwhelmed London, but Shaun and Ed are slow to notice until they encounter two zombies in their garden and kill them with blows to the head.
They form a plan to rescue Shaun's mother and Liz wait out the crisis in the Winchester. They escape in Pete's car, pick up Barbara and Philip, who gets bitten shortly after, they use Phillip's car to pick up Liz and her friends Dianne and David. Philip makes peace with Shaun before turning into a zombie; the group abandons the vehicle and continues on foot, sneaking through backyards and evading zombies by pretending to be them. They seek refuge inside the Winchester, where Shaun discovers that the Winchester rifle above the bar is functional. Barbara reveals she turns undead after giving Liz and Shaun her blessing. David attempts to shoot Barbara, but Shaun stops him, causing them and the rest of the group to start arguing. Liz is able to stop them, Shaun, distraught, is forced to shoot Barbara. Zombies break into the pub. David is disemboweled, an enraged Dianne grabs David's leg and rushes into the horde; the zombified Pete bites Ed, after which Shaun shoots Pete and sets fire to the bar. The fire sets off the rifle ammunition while Shaun, Ed flee into the cellar, where they contemplate suicide.
Ed volunteers to stay behind with the rifle while Shaun and Liz escape through a hatch that opens to the street. The Army guns down the remaining zombies. Six months after the outbreak, civilization has returned to normal, surviving zombies are used as cheap labour and entertainment. Liz has moved in with Shaun, while Shaun keeps the zombie Ed tethered in his shed, where they play video games together; the film is notable for Wright's kinetic directing style, its references to other movies, television series and video games. In this way, it is similar to the British sitcom Spaced, which both Pegg and Wright worked on in similar roles; the film was inspired by the Spaced episode "Art", written by Pegg and directed by Wright, in which the character of Tim, under the influence of amphetamine and the video game Resident Evil 2, hallucinates that he is fighting off a zombie invasion. Having discovered a mutual appreciation for Romero's Dead trilogy, they decided to write their own zombie movie. Spaced was to be a big influence on the making of Shaun of the Dead, as it was directed by Wright in a similar style, featured many of the same cast and crew in minor and major roles.
Nick Frost, who played Mike in Spaced, has a starring role in Shaun of the Dead as Ed. Peter Serafinowicz and Julia Deakin – who played Duane Benzie and Marsha in Spaced – appear in Shaun of the Dead as Pete and Yvonne's mum, Pegg's Spaced co-star Jessica Hynes plays Yvonne; the film's cast features a number of British comedians, comic actors, sitcom stars, most prominently from Spaced, Black Books and The Office. Shaun of the Dead co-stars Dylan Moran, who played Bernard Black in Black Books, Martin Freeman, Tamsin Greig, Julia Deakin, Reece Shearsmith and Matt Lucas. In addition, the voices of Mark Gatiss and Julia Davis can be heard as radio news presenters, as can David Walliams who provides the voice of an unseen TV reporter. Trisha Goddard makes a cameo appearance, hosting two fictionalised episodes of her real-life talk show Trisha. Many other comics and comic actors appear in cameos as zombies, including Rob Brydon, Paul Putner, Russell Howard, Pamela Kempthorne, Joe Cornish, Antonia Campbell-Hughes, Mark Donovan and Michael Smiley.
Coldplay members Chris Martin and Jonny Buckland have cameo roles in the film. The film was shot over nine weeks between May and July 2003; the production was filmed in London, on location and at Ealing Studios, involved production companies Working Title Films and StudioCanal. Many exterior shots were filmed in and around the North London areas of Crouch End, Highgate Finsbury Park and East Finchley. Zombie extras were local residents or fans of Spaced who responded to a casting call organised through a fan website. Shaun's place of work is an actual electrical appliances shop located at North Finchley; the scenes filmed in and around the "Winchester Tavern" pub were shot at the "D
Montreal is the most populous municipality in the Canadian province of Quebec and the second-most populous municipality in Canada. Called Ville-Marie, or "City of Mary", it is named after Mount Royal, the triple-peaked hill in the heart of the city; the city is centred on the Island of Montreal, which took its name from the same source as the city, a few much smaller peripheral islands, the largest of, Île Bizard. It has a distinct four-season continental climate with cold, snowy winters. In 2016, the city had a population of 1,704,694, with a population of 1,942,044 in the urban agglomeration, including all of the other municipalities on the Island of Montreal; the broader metropolitan area had a population of 4,098,927. French is the city's official language and is the language spoken at home by 49.8% of the population of the city, followed by English at 22.8% and 18.3% other languages. In the larger Montreal Census Metropolitan Area, 65.8% of the population speaks French at home, compared to 15.3% who speak English.
The agglomeration Montreal is one of the most bilingual cities in Quebec and Canada, with over 59% of the population able to speak both English and French. Montreal is the second-largest French-speaking city in the world, after Paris, it is situated 258 kilometres south-west of Quebec City. The commercial capital of Canada, Montreal was surpassed in population and in economic strength by Toronto in the 1970s, it remains an important centre of commerce, transport, pharmaceuticals, design, art, tourism, fashion, gaming and world affairs. Montreal has the second-highest number of consulates in North America, serves as the location of the headquarters of the International Civil Aviation Organization, was named a UNESCO City of Design in 2006. In 2017, Montreal was ranked the 12th most liveable city in the world by the Economist Intelligence Unit in its annual Global Liveability Ranking, the best city in the world to be a university student in the QS World University Rankings. Montreal has hosted multiple international conferences and events, including the 1967 International and Universal Exposition and the 1976 Summer Olympics.
It is the only Canadian city to have held the Summer Olympics. In 2018, Montreal was ranked as an Alpha− world city; as of 2016 the city hosts the Canadian Grand Prix of Formula One, the Montreal International Jazz Festival and the Just for Laughs festival. In the Mohawk language, the island is called Tiohtià:ke Tsi, it is a name referring to the Lachine Rapids to the island's Ka-wé-no-te. It means "a place where nations and rivers unite and divide". In the Ojibwe language, the land is called Mooniyaang which means "the first stopping place" and is part of the seven fires prophecy; the city was first named Ville Marie by European settlers from La Flèche, or "City of Mary", named for the Virgin Mary. Its current name comes from the triple-peaked hill in the heart of the city. According to one theory, the name derives from mont Réal,. A possibility by the Government of Canada on its web site concerning Canadian place names, is that the name was adopted as it is written nowadays because an early map of 1556 used the Italian name of the mountain, Monte Real.
Archaeological evidence demonstrates that First Nations native people occupied the island of Montreal as early as 4,000 years ago. By the year AD 1000, they had started to cultivate maize. Within a few hundred years, they had built fortified villages; the Saint Lawrence Iroquoians, an ethnically and culturally distinct group from the Iroquois nations of the Haudenosaunee based in present-day New York, established the village of Hochelaga at the foot of Mount Royal two centuries before the French arrived. Archeologists have found evidence of their habitation there and at other locations in the valley since at least the 14th century; the French explorer Jacques Cartier visited Hochelaga on October 2, 1535, estimated the population of the native people at Hochelaga to be "over a thousand people". Evidence of earlier occupation of the island, such as those uncovered in 1642 during the construction of Fort Ville-Marie, have been removed. Seventy years the French explorer Samuel de Champlain reported that the St Lawrence Iroquoians and their settlements had disappeared altogether from the St Lawrence valley.
This is believed to be due to epidemics of European diseases, or intertribal wars. In 1611 Champlain established a fur trading post on the Island of Montreal, on a site named La Place Royale. At the confluence of Petite Riviere and St. Lawrence River, it is where present-day Pointe-à-Callière stands. On his 1616 map, Samuel de Champlain named the island Lille de Villemenon, in honour of the sieur de Villemenon, a French dignitary, seeking the viceroyship of New France. In 1639 Jérôme Le Royer de La Dauversière obtained the Seigneurial title to the Island of Montreal in the name of the Notre Dame Society of Montreal to establish a Roman Catholic mission to evangelize natives. Dauversiere hired Paul Chomedey de Maisonneuve 30, to lead a group of colonists to build a mission on his new seigneury; the colonists left France in 1641 for Quebec, arrived on the island the following year. On May 17, 1642, Ville-Marie was founded on the southern shore of Montreal is

The elderly woman finishes telling her granddaughter the story, revealing that she is Kim and saying that she never saw Edward again, she prefers not to visit him because decades have passed and she wants him to remember her as she was in her youth. She thinks Edward is still alive, immortal because he is artificial, because of the "snow" which Edward creates when carving ice sculptures; the genesis of Edward Scissorhands came from a drawing by then-teenaged director Tim Burton, which reflected his feelings of isolation and being unable

In years since, the Post's investigations have led to increased review of the Walter Reed Army Medical Center. In October 2013, the paper's longtime controlling family, the Graham family, sold the newspaper to Nash Holdings, a holding company established by Jeff Bezos, for $250 million in cash; the Washington Post is regarded as one of the leading daily American newspapers, along with The New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, The Wall Street Journal. The Post has distinguished itself through its political reporting on the workings of the White House and other aspects of the U. S. government. Unlike The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post does not print an edition for distribution away from the East Coast. In 2009, the newspaper ceased publication of its National Weekly Edition, which combined stories from the week's print editions, due to shrinking circulation; the majority of its newsprint readership is in the District of Columbia and its suburbs in Maryland and Northern Virginia.
The newspaper is one of a few U. S. newspapers with foreign bureaus, located in Beirut, Beijing, Bogotá, Hong Kong, Jerusalem, London, Mexico City, Nairobi, New Delhi and Tokyo.

The Philippines the Republic of the Philippines, is an archipelagic country in Southeast Asia. Situated in the western Pacific Ocean, it consists of about 7,641 islands that are categorized broadly under three main geographical divisions from north to south: Luzon and Mindanao; the capital city of the Philippines is Manila and the most populous city is Quezon City, both part of Metro Manila. Bounded by the South China Sea on the west, the Philippine Sea on the east and the Celebes Sea on the southwest, the Philippines shares maritime borders with Taiwan to the north, Vietnam to the west, Palau to the east, Malaysia and Indonesia to the south; the Philippines' location on the Pacific Ring of Fire and close to the equator makes the Philippines prone to earthquakes and typhoons, but endows it with abundant natural resources and some of the world's greatest biodiversity. The Philippines has an area of 300,000 km2, according to the Philippines Statistical Authority and the WorldBank and, as of 2015, had a population of at least 100 million.
As of January 2018, it is the eighth-most populated country in Asia and the 12th most populated country in the world. 10 million additional Filipinos lived overseas, comprising one of the world's largest diasporas. Multiple ethnicities and cultures are found throughout the islands. In prehistoric times, Negritos were some of the archipelago's earliest inhabitants, they were followed by successive waves of Austronesian peoples. Exchanges with Malay, Indian and Chinese nations occurred. Various competing maritime states were established under the rule of datus, rajahs and lakans; the arrival of Ferdinand Magellan, a Portuguese explorer leading a fleet for the Spanish, in Homonhon, Eastern Samar in 1521 marked the beginning of Hispanic colonization. In 1543, Spanish explorer Ruy López de Villalobos named the archipelago Las Islas Filipinas in honor of Philip II of Spain. With the arrival of Miguel López de Legazpi from Mexico City, in 1565, the first Hispanic settlement in the archipelago was established.
The Philippines became part of the Spanish Empire for more than 300 years. This resulted in Catholicism becoming the dominant religion. During this time, Manila became the western hub of the trans-Pacific trade connecting Asia with Acapulco in the Americas using Manila galleons; as the 19th century gave way to the 20th, the Philippine Revolution followed, which spawned the short-lived First Philippine Republic, followed by the bloody Philippine–American War. The war, as well as the ensuing cholera epidemic, resulted in the deaths of thousands of combatants as well as tens of thousands of civilians. Aside from the period of Japanese occupation, the United States retained sovereignty over the islands until after World War II, when the Philippines was recognized as an independent nation. Since the unitary sovereign state has had a tumultuous experience with democracy, which included the overthrow of a dictatorship by a non-violent revolution; the Philippines is a founding member of the United Nations, World Trade Organization, Association of Southeast Asian Nations, the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation forum, the East Asia Summit.
It hosts the headquarters of the Asian Development Bank. The Philippines is considered to be an emerging market and a newly industrialized country, which has an economy transitioning from being based on agriculture to one based more on services and manufacturing. Along with East Timor, the Philippines is one of Southeast Asia's predominantly Christian nations; the Philippines was named in honor of King Philip II of Spain. Spanish explorer Ruy López de Villalobos, during his expedition in 1542, named the islands of Leyte and Samar Felipinas after the then-Prince of Asturias; the name Las Islas Filipinas would be used to cover all the islands of the archipelago. Before that became commonplace, other names such as Islas del Poniente and Magellan's name for the islands San Lázaro were used by the Spanish to refer to the islands; the official name of the Philippines has changed several times in the course of its history. During the Philippine Revolution, the Malolos Congress proclaimed the establishment of the República Filipina or the Philippine Republic.
From the period of the Spanish–American War and the Philippine–American War until the Commonwealth period, American colonial authorities referred to the country as the Philippine Islands, a translation of the Spanish name. Since the end of World War II, the official name of the country has been the Republic of the Philippines. Philippines has gained currency as the common name since being the name used in Article VI of the 1898 Treaty of Paris, with or without the definite article. Discovery in 2018 of stone tools and fossils of butchered animal remains in Rizal, Kalinga has pushed back evidence of early hominins in the archipelago to as early as 709,000 years. However, the metatarsal of the Callao Man, reliably dated by uranium-series dating to 67,000 years ago remains the oldest human remnant found in the archipelago to date; this distinction belonged to the Tabon Man of Palawan, carbon-dated to around 26,500 years ago. Negritos were among the archipelago's earliest inhabitants, but their first settlement in the Philippines has not been reliably dated.
There are several opposing theories regarding the origins of ancient Filipinos. F. Landa Jocano theorizes. Wilhelm Solheim's Island Origin Theory postulates that the peopling of the archipelago transpired via trade networks originating in the Sundaland area around
Warm Bodies is a novel by author Isaac Marion. The book was described as a "zombie romance" by the Seattle Post-Intelligencer and makes allusions to William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet; the author, based in Seattle wrote a short story titled "I Am a Zombie Filled with Love". Atria Books, a division of Simon & Schuster, acquired the publishing rights to the full novel in early 2010. In a post-apocalyptic future, a male zombie still in the early stages of decay lives in a community of the Dead in an abandoned airport near the city, he refers to himself as "R". R reveals through first person narrative that human civilization has been destroyed by wars and disasters, resulting in a mysterious zombie plague. Now whole communities of zombies live in hives, are separated into two categories based on the amount of decay: Fleshies, the Dead who still have flesh on them, Boneys, the Dead who have been reduced to nothing more than skeletons with bits of muscle keeping them together; the Boneys are the leaders of the Dead, are stronger and more intelligent than Fleshies.
They can only be killed. The zombies are lethargic for the most part, have limited speech and short memories, are notably illiterate, they live in what is a twisted shadow of a normal society. One of the few times they are focused and animated is when they go hunting for the Living, their only food source, during which they spontaneously form a hunting party; the brain is the best part, because if they eat it they can relive the memories and thoughts of their prey. Anything that's left of the prey is brought back for the others to eat. R is portrayed as unusual, since he not only contains more empathy and intuition than his fellow Dead, but is able to express it better than most of them despite being Dead, he shows distaste for eating human flesh, is the only zombie there, able to form four, coherent syllables in one breath. After a hunt, he meets a zombie woman, they become girlfriend and boyfriend, she takes him to church where a Bony preacher sees them, marries them on impulse. The next day, R and his new wife are presented with two Dead children.
Seeing them try to play like Living children depresses R, he is gripped with a feeding frenzy. He leads a hunting party to the city. Attacking with unusual energy, R feeds on the brain of a young man named Perry. After experiencing his memories, R sees Perry's girlfriend Julie, in a moment of mercy, saves her from the others, he disguises her scent with zombie blood, takes her home where he hides her in a 747 airplane. The airplane is R's “house” where he can have some privacy, hoard the interesting objects he finds, he gains Julie's trust, convinces her to stay for a while until the others forget about her. Throughout the week, R feeds her food from the airport's restaurant, entertains her with his treasures, including a record player, Julie tries to teach him to drive a car which R has managed to get started, she tells him a little bit about her life. In time, R begins feeling guilty over killing Perry, made worse since Julie doesn’t know it was him, is giving him the benefit of the doubt. Despite his guilt, R continues seeing it as a rare treasure.
One night, R eats the last of the brain, experiences the last of Perry's memories. When he begins to witness Perry's death however, R's thoughts interrupt the scene in an attempt to halt it. To his shock, memory pauses, Perry scolds him, telling him to let Perry have this memory. R complies, the memory plays through. After it ends, R falls asleep; when he awakens, Julie is being attacked by several zombies, including M, R helps her fend them off. M is confused and angry by R's behavior; some Boneys arrive. Although they do not attack, one of them shows R some old photos of Dead and Living fighting each other, telling him that they need to maintain the status quo, they leave along with the rest, R takes Julie back to the airplane. In the morning, Julie convinces R to take her home, they attempt to leave while the Dead watch them, half-fascinated and half-afraid. However, the Boneys attack and try to kill Julie. On the way to the city, it starts raining, they are forced to stop in the suburbs, they camp out in one of the houses, Julie allows R to share a bed with her.
To his surprise, R experiences some more of Perry's memories, during which R has another conversation with “Perry”. The next morning, Julie calls her father, sends R out for fuel; when he returns however, Julie is gone. R begins walking back to the airport in a heavy rainstorm, feels cold for the first time since he “died”. On the road, R runs into some other zombies who have been chased out by the Boneys; the zombies have been changing like R, experiencing things such as dreams and old memories. R decides to go after Julie, recruits the other zombies’ help to get inside the stadium. Along the way, Perry shows R more of his memories; when R and the others arrive at the stadium, he impersonates a Living person, has his friends “chase” him to its doors. The soldiers let him in, R sneaks through the stadium following Julie's scent to her house. R sees Julie on her balcony, they reunite. R meets Nora, Julie's best friend. With no other options, the girls let him stay the night, R has another Perry dream.
The next morning, the girls give R a major make-over to make him look human
