Three Flavours Cornetto Film Trilogy

While I enjoy very much viewing the Oscar nominees from various years, sometimes I just need a break or have a yearning for something just a bit silly.

I had a day of director Edgar Wright’s comedic horror/thriller/sci-fi movies, and spent a dreary Sunday afternoon once watching them back to back. It was an awesome guilty pleasure.

The films are:

Shaun of the Dead - Shaun, a mild-mannered electronics store clerk, battles a lackluster job, roommate woes, a failing romance, and a zombie apocalypse.

Hot Fuzz - Super cop Nicholas Angel is so extremely super, he’s been transferred to a small remote countryside village where nothing bad ever happens, with the exception of unfortunate and gruesome ‘accidents.’

The World’s End - A night of pub crawling for old high school friends is completely and totally ruined by an alien invasion.

I love the humor in his films, and the sense that while they’re written making fun of horror, action and sci-fi, underneath the mockery is someone who who just honestly adores movies.

More info on the films can be found at Wikipedia .

The only one of these three I've heard of is Shaun of the Dead. I'm not a fan of the horror genre, but you make these sound more fun than terrifying.

I have not heard of any of these movies. I wonder if netflix and amazon have them available.

Yes, there is nothing scary in any of them, they're just flat out silly fun. But very well done, at the same time.

I'm pretty sure they do! Although with the new month up at Netflix, it's always a gamble on films arriving and leaving.
