Charlotte Posted May 11, 2012 Share Posted May 11, 2012 There is a notion abroad that I am a fuddy-duddy who is incapable of love when it comes to pop culture that has explosions in it. But this is not so! Because sorry ,Superman, but in terms of most anticipated films of 2013, you just dropped to #2: 20 years after attempting an epic pub crawl, five childhood friends reunite when one of them becomes hell bent on trying the drinking marathon again. They are convinced to stage an encore by mate Gary King, a 40-year old man trapped at the cigarette end of his teens, who drags his reluctant pals to their home town and once again attempts to reach the fabled pub, The World’s End. As they attempt to reconcile the past and present, they realize the real struggle is for the future, not just theirs but humankind’s. Reaching The World’s End is the least of their worries. This is the third and final film in the unofficial "cornetto trilogy," which started with Shaun of the Dead and continued with Hot Fuzz. (So named because a different flavor of Cornetto appears in each film.) I'm not exaggerating in the slightest when I say that Hot Fuzz is my favorite comedy since Ghostbusters and that its script should be taught in film classes or just held up to gaze at admiringly, a fully-complete fractal of callbacks, call-forwards, double-entendres and scenes where an 80 year old woman is jump-kicked in the face by Simon Pegg. I was a little worried there that Wright would be done making films after Scott Pilgrim was unjustly cast down from the box office, so I'm thrilled that this film is finally going to get put to film. It's fully worth it waiting a few extra years for Ant-Man to get made. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
