Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg, Nick Frost…it’s The World’s End

Blah blah blah post blah blah blah movie blah blah review.  So I don’t think I mentioned this yet but I occasionally post up at clever bee where I’m chuffed about things and that’s mainly because of jacksgap and tyler oakley who introduced the word into my vocabulary.

Lazy Post: Go see The World’s End

And now, more senseless ramblings on the movie.  Probably with spoilers.  Mostly nonsense.The World’s End is the third film in the Three Flavours Cornetto trilogy.  But these films aren’t in a story arc so you can see them individually and not suffer from it.  You can see them out of order and you will not be lost or confused.  So you can go to the cinema right now and watch The World’s End even if you haven’t seen Shaun of the Dead or Hot Fuzz and you’ll probably be inspired to go see the other films because well it’s a good film.

Shaun of the Dead is a zombie comedy film.  Hot Fuzz is a buddy cop film.  The World’s End is an exploration about the disillusionment of aging in the guise of a science fiction tale of alien invasion.

Martin Freeman and Pierce Brosnan are in it.  That wasn’t a problem for me.

There’s some good looking young people in the movie.  Our protagonist encounters a lad in the restroom.  And of course what do I think…. “oh, he’s fit.”  The guy who played the young Simon Pegg character wasn’t bad either.  Thomas Law is the young Gary King and he’s given me a reason to be interested in EastEnders.  But I won’t.

Just tried to find decent pictures.  Couldn’t find any.  Just go see the film already.  I promise some chap in a bowtie doesn’t pop out of a box and wave a magic wand.

But really.  If I’m doing my math correctly, the premise of the film involves drinking a gallon and a half of beer per person.  That’s quite a bit.
