The third in the Cornetto Trilogy from Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, The World's End is their crowning glory. It is fun, clever, nostalgic and a good look into how to have a midlife crisis when you are part of Generation X. Just read this article in Salon.com about Gen X and then watch the movie. You will get what I mean. Without giving away too much about the plot, opting out is what our generation does well, with a lot of music from the 1990s.
And what a soundtrack. There are two songs from The Beautiful South which epitomises the 1990s in the UK, and loads of other references that would possibly would go over the heads of people who were not alive or at least a teenager in the 1990s. So it is hard for me to be impartial about this film, I am its core audience. Geek. late Gen Xer, spent my 20s in the UK during the second half of the 1990s.
I really really enjoyed the movie. I recommend it. I will watch it again, just to catch the jokes that I missed when I was laughing too hard and loud. I can't say anything more without spoiling it all. So just check out the trailer below.
