I Have Heard Of This Movie

Green comet to appear in sky for first time in 50,000 years:

People looking at the morning sky this month might notice a rare celestial body.

NASA says a glowing green comet will make an appearance for the first time in 50,000 years.

It will have streaking tails of dust and could appear fuzzy.

The comet will be closest to the sun Thursday and closest to Earth between Feb. 1 and 2.

Night of the Comet:

The Earth is passing through the tail of a comet, an event which has not occurred in 65 million years and coincided with the extinction event that wiped out the dinosaurs. On the night of the comet’s passage, eleven days before Christmas, large crowds gather outside to watch and celebrate.

If we survive, perhaps on February 3 I will start my screenplay for a mash-up of a zombie movie and Groundhog Day/Edge of Tomorrow.

  1. I remember that one. Good ol’ Anthony Zerbe, and a nice reminder that a humanity that requires perfection to survive will almost always be murdered by Murphy.

  2. Shows you how memory can trick you! I thought the lead scientist was Zerbe, but IMDB says Geoffrey Lewis. Ah, fickle neurons!

  3. As I said, I have not actually seen it as zombie movies are not really my thing.

    However, on your recommendation, I might look for it at the antique malls where DVDs have gone to die.

    At least, until they become collectors’ items in seven or eight years.

  4. I loathe zombie movies — the last good one was the “Thriller” video. While I clearly didn’t remember this one well, I don’t recall it striking me as zombie-centric at the time. Might have been the cute leads drew my attention.
