Shaun of the Dead (2004)
Is there anything better than a British comedy accompanied by a well made cup of tea, or a cold pint?
Shaun is a 30-something year old electronics store clerk, living a dull and predictable existence in the outskirts of London with his unemployed friend Ed. When the world gets overrun by zombies, and Shaun actually notices, Shaun devises a plan to protect his mother, get his girlfriend back and prove to both of them once and for all that he really is a grown man capable of stepping up when needed.
The boys attempt to take down some zombies with vinyl records...but only the records they can bear to part with. One of the most memorable scenes from the film.

Only Lovers Left Alive (2013)
Consisting of gorgeously addictive, dark, hipster goth imagery (check out this Sony Pictures Classics gallery), Only Lovers Left Alive is my favourite recently released vampire flick. Hiddleston, Swinton, Yelchin and Wasikowska - the casting, is also a big part of why I love this film.
Visually captivating with lingering shots, the slow pace of the film perfectly distills the vampire condition. Listening, waiting and observing the endless expanse of eternity unfolding before them. With love and friendship being the only constant to make life worth living. Really, a reflection of what's also important in our simple mere mortal lives.
