The Dead Don’t Die Review: A Zombie Comedy Unlike Anything Else, for Better and Worse

Possibly frustrating the experience further is that Jarmusch’s Only Lovers Left Alive is one of the stronger vampire films of the decade, with his poetic sensibilities being more effective when exploring forlorn lovers expressing their frustrations with humanity while professing their love for one another than when applied to the dead coming back to life.

Charges against owner of deadly Cha Cha carnival ride Wittingslow Amusements dropped

One of the team’s findings was that the crash was made possible, in part, because of the limits of Autopilot’s vision-based processing system.

The other thing is that I would completely agree with David: that sadly we have a society in which people do have to fight for resources.
