Let's Boo-Boo

What started with Shaun of the Dead and continued with Hot Fuzz comes to a pretty much perfect conclusion in The World's End. The so-called "Blood and Ice Cream Trilogy" (or Cornetto Trilogy if you will) is simply one of the greatest achievements in British comedy and Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost should be quite proud of the result.

The World's End opens in 1990 - as a group of five friends embark on an epic pub crawl in their hometown of Newton Haven - the "Golden Mile" - 12 pubs, sixty pints... all led by their self-professed leader Gary King. They don't quite make it to The World's End, but for King, this turns into the pinnacle of his life. Where his friends all go on to become successful business and family men - Gary is trapped in the past. He comes upon the brilliant...

Review: The World''s End

"And we're back, just like the five musketeers!"

" Three musketeers, isn't it?"

Yes, it is the three musketeers - Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, and director Edgar Wright. The hilarious British trio is back, delivering their epic finale to the fabulous "Blood and Ice Cream" (or "Cornetto," or "Rotten Tomatoes 91%) trilogy. I'm a huge admirer of Edgar Wright and his films. I think Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, the previous two "Blood and Ice Cream" films, are absolutely marvelous. They're so well made and so damn funny that it's just ridiculous. He also made 2010's Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, which I find funny, clever, unique, enthralling, and entertaining as shit. Does The World's End live up to Wright's previously high standards?

The World's End follows a group of five guys - Ga...

Wishing 'The World's End' Would Never End

Those familiar with 'Shaun of the Dead' and 'Hot Fuzz' will find 'The World's End' to be more of the same. That is the best possible compliment I can give to this film. The trio of Pegg, Frost, and Wright have once again delivered a hilarious and highly enjoyable comedy. The basic plot involving old pals reuniting for a pub traveling adventure is only the tip of the fun to be had here. The story is supremely well written, containing characters whose history and inner turmoil are gradually revealed over time. This leads to some true emotional moments placed perfectly amidst the sharp comedy and fantastic, crazy sci-fi elements. For a film filled with so much alcohol consumption, it's really all about intervention and embracing basic human flaws. The mixing of genres has never been b...

A smart stupid comedy.

Okay, now these guys really have explored every idea possible. A pub crawl. When was the last time we had a good movie about a pub crawl?

This was my most anticipated movie of 2013, right after Man of Steel, but fortunately The World's End was actually good. In fact, it was great.

Who knew these simple, fun comedies would turn into one of the best trilogies today? My God. I am so surprised.

This movie has a typical Pegg-Frost-Wright quality. It looks generic on the outside but can make you burst with laughter and fall in love with its characters once you get into the excellently-written story.
This may be the Dark Knight Rises of the Three Flavors Cornetto trilogy. It was actually dark. Yes, a hilarious comedy that has some great dramatic scenes.
It has the qualities of Shaun o...

"The World's End" by Yojimbo

A middle aged loser determined to recreate his glory days talks his childhood friends into finishing a pub crawl they started in their youth, only to find the town has been taken over by alien replicants. As you can probably tell from the synopsis, the third part of the big screen Spaced trilogy is Shaun Of The Body Snatchers. It centres once more on the camaraderie between ageing nerds and contains plenty of the same blend of very British humour and geeky movie references that you'd expect and as such will not disappoint fans of the previous two films. Its biggest handicap is the fact that the terminally self involved central character of Gary King is easily the least likeable of the three and that it's all starting to feel very familiar. The disappointingly humourless sub-Matrix action ...
