I cannot review this as I don't remember what happened while watching this. Nah I'm just kidding, but you will get that joke if you watch this or have seen it.

Follow the lives of Viago (Taika Waititi), Deacon (Jonathan Brugh), and Vladislav (Jemaine Clement) - three flatmates who are just trying to get by and overcome life's obstacles-like being immortal vampires who must feast on human blood. Hundreds of years old, the vampires are finding that beyond sunlight catastrophes, hitting the main artery, and not being able to get a sense of their wardrobe without a reflection-modern society has them struggling with the mundane like paying rent, keeping up with the chore wheel, trying to get into nightclubs, and overcoming flatmate conflicts.
Release date: 13 February 2015

Top 20 Films of 2014 (20 movies items)

" Flat out one of the funniest movies in the last 20 years. It has so many jokes that every time I watch it, I find something new to laugh at. Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi are comedic geniuses and it shows. They use the mockumentary format perfectly and it never gets annoying with telling the story. All the characters in this are hilarious and no one ever sucks the fun out of the film. This one has a very high rewatch value and I have a feeling it will go on to be a comedy classic. "

"First viewing - Aug. 21st I've seen a lot of positive feedback on this movie, but the trailers didn't sell me on it back when it came out. I finally gave in to my curiosity though, and as it turns out this was worth watching. I don't think it's great nor as funny as some seem to think it is, but I definitely appreciated what they did throughout the film and was mostly entertained by it. Possibly a revisit will earn more points from me, but for now it's more like a 7.5."

Moviewatcher122's 2017 Film Diary: May (17 movies items)

"May 31 "I think we drink virgin blood because it sounds cool." "I think of it like this. If you are going to eat a sandwich, you would just enjoy it more if you knew no one had fucked it." I didn't quite get this movie at first, but it wasn't too long before I started to catch on to it. It takes the all too familiar concepts of found footage and vampires and does so in a way that's refreshing and hilarious. Quite a bit of the humor in this movie is pretty dry, but at the same time is really "
