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 .
