There are so many themes which should be explored in this post: lost youth, failure, the nature of the human race and the bonds of friendship. But I'm spent. I've written and edited a lot this week and I'm really trying to focus on getting appropriate sponsors to advertise on the site! (See advertisement below post). Check out Tinsel & Tine's Rate Sheet and Google Analytics, if you are or know someone looking to get great exposure on a quality blog, please pass the links along :) Just think of it as my ticket to Tribeca & Sundance in 2014!
The World's End reunites Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost from Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, although neither of these movies have anything to do with The World's End or each other, except the creators are the same team of British Loonies. Wright also wrote and directed Scott Pilgrim vs. the World - And here's the thing, I haven't seen ANY of those movies and I think I've been missing out on some brilliant comedy, cause The World's End is one of the best buddy/sci-fi action/apocalyptic comedies ever!!!
ComingSoon.net: I'm sure you've heard this before, but Gary King is a pretty dark character for Simon, but I definitely found myself relating to him way too much. I still wear black T-shirts and find myself living in the past.
Wright: I do, too. I think in a way when people say, "Oh, do you know somebody like Gary King?" we say, "Yeah, we do, but I think also in our darkest recesses there are bits of him inside us." I think when you write films, you actually try to be a better man than you are in reality so there's elements of all the characters. I think Andy, Nick's character, becomes the moral compass and is mad at his friend and desperately wants an apology, but also at the end of it, he also wants to help and save his friend. I think in all of the films, even "Scott Pilgrim," there are elements where the characters have flaws, it's usually yourself as a writer, trying to work out imperfections in yourself. I always thought that "Shaun of the Dead" was a long apology to an ex-girlfriend for being a lazy boyfriend and I think in a way, this is quite therapeutic for me and Simon because we get to deal with some of our hidden demons within a sci-fi comedy. -Edward Douglas READ MORE
So what's a Cornetto?
Here's the Wiki: Each film in the Edgar Wright trilogy is connected to a Cornetto ice cream, featuring scenes in which one of the main characters purchases a Cornetto of the appropriate flavor. "Shaun of the Dead" features a red strawberry flavored Cornetto, which signifies the film's bloody and gory elements, "Hot Fuzz" includes the blue original Cornetto, to signify the police element to the film, and "The World's End" features the green mint choc-chip flavor in a nod to aliens and science fiction.
