The World's End

Hellllllloooooooooo! Welcome to episode #100 of The Next Reel, everybody! And what a better way to celebrate than to finish the Three Flavours Cornetto Trilogy series that we started in March 2012 with our episode on Edgar Wright's latest film, "The World's End." Another genre film filled with poignant character moments, riotous moments of comedy, fantastic writing from beginning to end, and solid and assured direction, Wright finishes off this pseudo trilogy (that he started with "Shaun of the Dead" and "Hot Fuzz") with a film that actually does help tie all three films together thematically while still remaining its own complete film. Join us — Pete Wright and Andy Nelson — as we delve into the frothy tale of five guys revisiting (or to some extent reliving) their past as they try to finish a 12-pub crawl they never completed before only to have it rudely interrupted by alien invaders. We talk about Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost and what these gents have brought to the table in each of these 3 films, and why this film is such a treat to see because of the reversal in character types for Pegg and Frost. We discuss the rest of the actors, both familiar from Wright's other work and new to it, and what they bring to the table. We chat about the great stunt choreography and how that pairs with the fantastic cinematography to create some of the most invigorating fight scenes in a while. We go into the themes of the film and how the nature of nostalgia can affect a person negatively and how we, as people, need to keep moving forward. And we quote some of the great lines from the fantastic script by Wright and Pegg. It's a blast of a film, even if the tonal shift and disagreeable protagonist may keep some people from fully falling for it as we both clearly did. We have a great time talking about it (and thoroughly spoiling it) so go watch it and tune in!
