Edgar Wright is one of the UK‘s best, upcoming directors in my opinion. I knew he’d come good as soon as I saw his sitcom Spaced. The World’s End will come to you. It ain’t as good as the other two, but it’s still a really good film. Nice take on the Invasion Of The Body Snatchers. Wright’s films are usually filled with pop culture references, and he does a number of clever things, and there are a number of common themes throughout his films. The opening Hot Fuzz, where Nick is travelling to Sandford, the taxi ride into the village passes all the main scenes of what happens later in the film. In TWE, Gary is telling the story of the Golden Mile at the beginning, which is basically a complete commentary on exactly what happens later in the film. Almost every line uttered is a reference to something that happens later, or is repeated later. TWE made me want to sit down with the script and wrote next to every line what it is referring to later in the film - it’d take weeks! It’s quite deep when you start linking the dialogue. Even the names of the pubs are a reference to the incidents they meet on the Golden Mile - example - at the Two Headed Dog, Nick fights with the fenail twins. Once all the references are identified, it’s almost mindblowing! It’s extremely clever, but can come across as quite average if very little can be identified.Hot Fuzz on 4k - love it. Quintessentially British humour. Shaun of the Dead is every bit as good, though I've only seen The World's End once and wasn't that taken.
