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.

The World’s End is coming…..

The final film in the Blood and Ice Cream trilogy or the Three Flavours Cornetto trilogy is upon us and we finally get our first taster. Yes it’s only a poster but it’s something.

 

What do we know?

Well it’s going to be centered on a pub crawl with the final pub being The Worlds End. What happens on the way? Who knows but we can expect many laughs, some awesome death scenes and of course a mint choc chip cornetto.

  • Shaun of the Dead had a strawberry cornetto with the red signifying blood and gore
  • Hot Fuzz had an original cornetto with the blue representing the police.
  • We can expect a mint choc chip cornetto with the green colour possibly representing a Sci-fi element to the film. Does that mean we are going to get aliens? Only time will tell.
