Yep yep I really liked the film, though I found it rather different to the first two in the Cornetto Trilogy (Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz). I guess after nine years since the first film came out, this final one has grown into something more mature - at least it's theme is focusing on something more serious. Yep once again they're making a commentary on society - and Cornettos - but I do feel sad for the main character. Everybody loses something of themselves, but in this film you don't really know who's loss has been for the better.
Nevertheless I absolutely loved this film, and is an interesting end to the trilogy XD I would love to watch it again Time to do the Golden Mile with all the cinemas in London

Even as an action/sci-fi comedy full of (intended) clichés, is more original and deep than some hollywood dramas.
And that end... just lol.
And a very sad ending
As for the ending.... it is very sad, but also at the same time, it felt like some people finally found their happy place there, even if it wasn't an outcome they ever dreamed of - it was all really mixed and confusing, and I think that's a reason why I liked the film so much :> Then again I haven't seen it in a while now, so maybe I've forgotten some stuff XD But yeah, I liked the film for how strange it was, and how many perspectives it gave on things :>
They could have made a film about growing up and experiencing change WITHOUT so much sad, dark, DARK stuff going on, and I get that it was their choice and I just have to gladly accept it, but..... The scene where Andy fights Gary and reveals his suicide-support group bracelet and forces him to talk about how his childhood is all he ever had, was too damn much, especially for what was supposed to be the hilarious chocolate-mint flavor finale to a great trilogy
Something, since the making of Hot Fuzz, seems to have really changed. Everybody has grown up more, and have had to go through lots of experiences, and so it might have been difficult to make something that reverts to the light-heartedness of the first two films. I don't know, The World's End feels too real and emotionally driven to fit in the same timeless box with the others. I also would have preferred something that wasn't as heavy as this ... but in the end each film is a jewel in its own right, and they can all be enjoyed individually
I absolutely love this character adfvbghtgef. It was no Shaun of the Dead, but it's still wonderful.
Well, I cherish my memories of my twenties and unless I catch a glimpse of myself in the mirror (OMG, whose that fat ****) I think just as I did when I was that age. Now some might argue that I'm 'sad' (or whatever term is common usage now to describe the same state) but I assure you it will happen to every reader here. A couple of months back I was abused by some teens at a local mall and I took immense pleasure in informing them that it was only a matter of time before they too were the ones being abused. It IS that scene in the gents in which King informs the teenager that his generation paved the way for the younger one - and I suspect that it how it feels. Life experience is a wonderful thing, only spoiled by the fact that as we get older our bodies let us down. Meanwhile, squatting atop of our shoulders is a perfectly decent brain, armed with a lot of experience and wisdom, yet it is human nature, and a youthful one to assume the older generation were never with it. You know, I cannot ever thinking that I was ever 'with it' but like the tag-line in the movie all I ever wanted (and still want) is to be free and to have a good time - and in as far as I can, I do. I hate the sight of myself now ("My god, I'm so cute!") but my twenties pictures were actually pretty damned handsome. Anyway, I could rant on and on, but you don't want to hear that.
One bit of advice - being inside is great, it's amazing, but it's losing touch with the world. I've climbed volcanoes in New Mexico (they were not active), mountains in Colorado and walked the sands of a desert in California. I have walked the baked shores of North Africa and survived the frozen tundra of Alaska, and if nothing else it proved one thing to me. This is an amazing planet we all live on. GO SEE more of it before it's too late!
one the best films ever! saw it last night, totally love Gary King xD
awesome artwork by the way <3
You've completely captured Gary here
