THE WORLD'S END (#10)
The Cornetto boys are back, albeit a bit grown up now. And it shows, as the point of The World's End isn't to end the world, but to perhaps hold a mirror up to the repressed youthful kineticism that ace director Edgar Wright and stars Simon Pegg and Nick Frost have come to represent since rocking the internet fanboy world with their previous comedies Shaun of the Dead (2004) and Hot Fuzz (2007). Since those films, all involved have gone on to tremendous success, albeit yielding nothing quite as satisfying as their hilariously detail-driven collaborations. This grouping of the three films is now being referred to as a trilogy, so I guess this is it? This rollicking yarn with something to say may be intended as their world's end, but let's hope it isn't.
