The Cornetto Trilogy… what does it mean if meaning it really has? That’s a question you could ask after watching The World’s End. A better question would be why did no one who saw this movie suggest that I bring at least a six pack to the theater? Well you heard it here: Bring at least a six pack of strong, wholesome beer to the theater to make this an audience participation event. You might also consider a mini-keg as an alternative to a sixer. When you kick over the glass bottles in the theater they tend to give you away… then everyone wants to Bogart your brew. You could always just bring your own homebrew in a nice keg, cleverly disguised a friend complete with Shaun of the Dead hat and trench coat. This might be tricky, but if you can get the quarter keg or so in the theater, pass out solo cups and share, no one will rat you out, the whole audience will get hammered and the participation levels are sure to skyrocket. The World’s End is about drinking… and friends… and growing up. But start with drinking and go from there.
This week on the show, James is on vacation, but Jeff (@Jeff_FOTD) and Shawn (@TheLiberalDead) are joined once again by special guest Heather (@VDA_Net), the mad genius behind Viewer Discretion Advised, to dive deep into the latest film from Edgar Wright, The World’s End! Included is a full review of the film and an in-depth discussion about it.
Is this really the last in a trilogy? How does the film match up to expectations? Why is it better to watch movies with bikers? Most importantly, should you see the movie?
All of these burning questions will be answered… Oh, and don’t worry if you haven’t watched it yet… The first part of the show is spoiler-free, and all of the revealing stuff is left for last.
