    Last time I went there, there was the excellent Night of the Living Dead and a few others now theres loads of films such as the great The Man Who Knew Too Much, Bad Taste & The Day The Earth Stood Still, all of which are total classics to me.

    Might not be to everyones tastes and theres a lot of pre 70's stuff and b-movies but I reckon its pretty damn good and the team are doing an amazing job.

    Not really fussed about the books as I don't really like reading on my DS, I prefer the feel of a book for some reason.

    Yup, they are:
    http://www.archive.org/details/night_of_the_living_dead

    Looks like this project is simply converting Project Gutenberg ebooks and the Archive.org Public Domain films into moonshell-compatible files. The Project Gutenberg stuff is mostly in plain text files already, so feel free to use those if you want your ebook selection to be more in the "tens of thousands"!

    Great project! [​IMG] Maybe they should ask internet indies for permission so they can get a few more modern movies, for example Star Wreck, Sanctuary, Snowgum Films...
