Five friends reunite in an attempt to complete a pub crawl that they failed in completing 20 years previously. However things don’t go exactly as planned and they end up having to try and save the whole of humanity.

 

The third film in the Blood and Ice Cream trilogy sees a science fiction take on the series with Pegg and Frost having to do battle with Aliens/Robots while trying to complete a pub crawl.

The film does follow similar traits of the two previous films, albeit with Pegg and Frost in reverse roles with Frost being the sensible and serious member of the duo, with some classic lines, stupid behaviour and laugh out loud moments which will have you wanting to go back to the film for repeat viewings. (I have now seen it twice) The film has links to some big Sci-fi films from Hollywood’s past much like Shaun and Fuzz do to zombie and buddy cop films. Having read Pegg’s autobiography the ending of the film was a great link to something he talks about in his past.

The film does also have more serious parts than that of the previous films mainly between Pegg and Frost but they don’t deter away from the fun of the film.

My favourite film t-shirt website, www.lastexittonowhere.com, are also the official suppliers of two t-shirts for The Worlds End.

 

Recommend

This site, TheFriedGold, was named after my love for the Wright, Pegg, Frost combinations and I have been waiting for this film for a while and it did not disappoint. The easter eggs and references in the film will only make your love for this grow.  It will definitely be one that I can watch over and over like the others and if you loved Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz as much as I did then you will love this. Go and see this.

TheFriedGold rating – 8.5/10 – As cool as a Mint choc chip cornetto

 

Film Fact

With a Red cornetto in Shaun of the Dead signifying Blood and a blue cornetto in Hot Fuzz signifying the Police look out for a green cornetto in relation to Science fiction.

Last Exit to Nowhere, you’re my hero

 

Last Exit to Nowhere

 


The fact that you are looking at this site must mean you like films. So I would like to introduce you, if you are not already aware, to a wonderful film homage site that sells t-shirt, jumpers, baseball caps and even some posters. But these aren’t any ordinary film based items. They are inspired by some of the greatest films ever made.

The site is called Last Exit To Nowhere and is a must see site for all film fans and I’m sure you will find at least one, if not more, items that you will want to buy.

I have been purchasing t-shirts from this site for 3 years now, anyone who knows me would have noticed the film t-shirts I wear. The reason I love this site and why I think you will too is that the items on sale add that something different/cool/geeky to what you would normally expect from film memorabilia. They mostly take companies and towns from films and base the design around that. From Ferris Bueller’s Day Off (1986) you get Abe Froman the Sausage King of Chicago or from The Shining (1980) you get The Overlook Hotel.

From my first t-shirt of Hill Valley High (Back to the Future 1985) to my latest Dr E. Brown Enterprises (Back to the Future 1985) I have loved every single one. I am currently around 10-15 different t-shirts and I expect my collection to keep growing. My favourite item that I own is the homage to Superman II (1980) which shows General Zod with the word ‘Kneel’ underneath. As a huge Superman fan this design was originally available as a poster from the site. However I am glad, amongst many others, that they released the design in t-shirt form too.

As a film geek myself, hey I have a film blog and studied Film Studies at university so I must be, I highly recommend this site to all lovers of film. You will find it very hard to resist buying a t-shirt from this site so go click on the link and buy yourself a gift or maybe a friend one. You won’t regret it.

Last Exit to Nowhere Fact

People who purchase items also recieve an extra gift of a Last Exit to Nowhere sticker in the style of a sign or a quote. The classic ‘EXIT’ sign is my favourite.
