Paul (2011) – Greg Mottola

One tends to forget how funny Paul is. Written by stars Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, it is a love letter to sci-fi, geek, and pop culture and is the next stop in DK Canada’s Monsters in the Movies. Graeme (Pegg) and Clive (Frost) are huge geeks, and have finally made it to Comic Con…
