Today I’m doing a review of the classic Cornetto Trilogy. (look out for the Cornetto in each picture)
With blood guts and comic gore, I’m going to review the classic British comedy that is:
Shaun of the Dead
So let me start at the beginning: Shaun of the Dead
Shaun (Simon Pegg) plays an average lazy bog-standard brit and Ed (Nick Frost) plays an average-er lazier bog standard-er brit. Everything is its usual dull repetitive self until suddenly they face their most testing challenge yet.
Film moral: Power to the bog-stadard
Witty, gag-y, what a classic.
Personally, I think this was the best of the trilogy, it’s just classic British humour.
A film not for the light hearted but definitely worth watching if you’re up for a good old laf.
Next: Hot Fuzz
More sinister, more action, more mystery. The plot thickens as PC Danny Butterman and PC/Sergeant/Inspector Nicholas Angel are set on their most dangerous mission yet in the picturesque town of Sandford, Gloucestershire.
Lastly, The World’s End
More profound really, but I thought it was good, there were some classic lines in there.
Gary King, middle aged muck up, decides to complete the “golden mine” -basically one hell of a pub crawl. In doing so he gathers his old reluctant school mates to join him.
Basically these films are a one of, they’re not just something anyone can blow their budget on. These are quality British films that frankly are just a bit different.
That’s Halloween in the bag then.
