King of the World by MagpieFreak King of the World by MagpieFreak
I saw The World's End yesterday! :D It was a really entertaining movie with brilliant fight scenes and I loved Gary King XD He stood out so much from his friends that ... gosh isn't he just fanartable? XD I bet Simon Pegg had loads of fun with that trench coat XD Listened to a load of appropriate songs while working on this, but the one I listened to the most was I'm Free by Soup Dragons - I think that best suits Gary's character

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 :D Time to do the Golden Mile with all the cinemas in London :D

To be honest, World's End is my least favorite of the Cornetto Trilogy because of how relatable dark, depressing, empty, and uncomfortable some of it's more serious scenes are. Still, it was a good movie with a great main character :)

And a very sad ending :(

Yeah, definitely the film has taken a different turn to the other ones, it feels so much heavier and kinda out of place in comparison, but it was still a great film :> And the main character is just ... I dunno - there's something so interesting about him XD And of course visually he's rather inspiring, which is why I ended up drawing this piece XD

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 :>

Yeah. I'm not saying it was a bad film, it's just that it had too many sad underlines and not enough jokes. And I would be able to stomach it, if I didn't love Shaun or Fuzz because of how balanced the humor and darker elements were. When I heard of World's End, I expected it to be a fun little joy ride about a man and his friends going on a pub crawl for the hell of it, and BOOM. Aliens. But it's the fact that Gary is so depressed, angry, and lonely throughout the whole film, with none of his old best friends liking him anymore and even wishing he was dead, that really leaves a bad taste in your mouth. I get that film is an art and that it's more than one emotion, but hen it's a comedy, you don't expect things like midlife crises, losing friends, traumatic childhood bullying, serious addictions to alcohol and drugs, teenage sex affairs, and witnessing people you love dying all around you to be there all at once to knock you back with a shout.

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 :(

Oh I do get what you mean, when I entered the cinema I was totally expecting something like Shaun and Fuzz, and nothing like what it turned out to be. When I left the cinema I was  really confused about what to think of it, and a little bit disappointed that the trilogy ended on that note. After a bit though, it all sunk in and I kinda separated it from the other two; it's not very easy for me to consider The World's End as a one of the Cornetto Trilogy because ... it felt like the film was obliged to be that way. It had the fence-jumping scene, the cornetto cameo, the same actors, the elements that tied the other two films together, but this one felt like it was trying to reach out for something different, but was held back at the same time.

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 :)
