I'm actually to bargain with box for -- dot com movie reviewer adjusting craggy.
The guys you brought us Shaun of the dead and hot -- return to take fun at the apocalypse for the third -- and their core -- trilogy the world and no way signature excuse Simon peg nick frost and Edgar Wright -- -- the world then I don't have named the world's end.
It's the final stop on a quest by a group of childhood friends to complete their once started -- pub crawl.
The group returned to their hometown where things are a bit different than they remember just -- taken away.
Well it doesn't get much better than this for me this summer I had so much fun watching this movie and I love Simon pagan and you're right there to movies before this.
We're just -- great but actually I think this is better then I know you disagree with me.
I'll always -- was shot of the dead but I did have fun at I mean I love hot fuzz but I think this tops them.
Because they just take what they started with those two films and they just take -- -- level but there's also these messages in this movie that are just so.
Funny but also meaningful Simon take plays a guy who's an alcoholic and he's just hit rock bottom he's totally living in the past cannot escape.
The great high school days with his friends and then doing this epic pub crawl which they were unable to complete -- then.
So jump forward to present day everybody's off scattered around England having their own jobs and he hit rock bottom that at.
And his -- -- -- and he realizes well.
You know I can either kill myself or go off.
And have one more great time with my friends that we courses -- friends to go.
Back to town Wal-Mart time and do this now of course once they get to these different parts they realized like you said things are a little off.
As it is saying some magic at the pub for all the movie is right now it's out going on in their homes and.
There is an alien invasion Iraq so you have a little bit of -- invasion of the body snatchers.
With this hilarious British humor and I really hope that -- sequels because the final scene in the movie just told us that's 48.
I'm completely different kind of -- and franchise if they decide to go forward and I really hope they do because Edgar Wright Simon -- I think -- genius.
An interesting and after action but they are saying it's in the trilogy this -- part -- of those three pounds.
I wonder if it could then have its -- -- -- -- -- sort of this -- doesn't hit it completes the picture here.
Aren't very different -- but there are running the economy right.
Friendship amidst these.
And like here -- the end of the world and all of them together -- nick frost -- you know time -- right hand man and Eddie Morrison Paddy Considine.
And then Martin Freeman now these guys together are so funny dialogue written by -- right in Simon -- is great I think -- -- is such a great actor and he does such great job in this movie well first of all he's a real jerk.
Then I mean this character is a miserable piece of you know what and it's that's just part of the charm because he has overcome that his friends pat -- Deal with this and I'm sure we all know somebody like this -- wanna help them now but they just don't want that help you just don't they just want to stick it to everybody they need.
And -- does -- so well but then.
His -- is so good because what he actually.
Comes to is is just wonderful he doesn't so.
Today because you realize this is the theme here at the movies there's another in -- release this week and this is one of those -- fountains available on demand before in -- you have already seen it.
It's called drinking buddy is and it features quite a -- New girls -- Johnson Olivia Wilde and it can attract Ron Livingston okay Justin what is this one all about.
Now this is almost like a piece of cinema -- today so this entire movie is improvised almost.
These actors followed and -- The events -- -- to unfold and then.
There were just left to it and it feels like that and it works because it adds it's so realistically -- -- the camera was -- drop down.
Within -- this group before people.
And and just watch them live and deal with the relationship.
-- -- Johnson and Olivia -- work at a brewery and their best friends but -- relationship could possibly.
Go to the next level but they both have significant others -- Johnson is dating Anna Kendrick.
And Olivia Wilde -- with Ron Livingston and you could tell that those.
Al wires are just not quite as perfect as Jake Johnson and -- while could be.
And so what they all have in common is that they drink their drinking buddies working at her in and they go away for a long weekend at a cabin in the woods.
And they just drink and live and and don't know each other and it's like a slice of life and it's really.
But it my.
It for -- budget because of Oprah improvisation I mean you can tell it's like watching life and I mean you know some people go to the movies to escape -- And this is very realistic and it might -- -- turn -- I actually think it's great.
It's a very subtle movie and I think Olivia Wilde was at her absolute best in this I was very impressed -- and -- Johnson as usual is great and yet very funny.
Yet we know we can in -- I think it very interesting and you hear a lot of these films.
Are in Prague but this you can tell is it more you can evaluate -- with the comedy is it there and -- on -- they give them -- situation and take it from there but right.
It's not obviously you're watching an infraction out it actually just feels like you're watching there and -- very natural people at home and and they just -- -- so subtle.
To me it's so realistic and I think that's -- -- great job.
-- it and up for you -- fans are also a new.
Your next we'll give you a sneak peek of that yeah.
But it's shout out time men really can shout out for one movie sound -- worlds and Justin.
It's -- hilarious genre mashup you have science fiction and horror mixed with a buddy comedy and.
And it's unpredictable I'll log in you that it's unpredictable area of predict.
Very Smart great screenplay by -- right -- Simon -- very funny jokes and where it goes I think these colors and of course the reunion of course I mean seeing all these guys together again he's just great and adding Martin Freeman and Eddie Mars and to this group is is wonderful I hope that they continue to do more films together.
