The World's End

A signature brew of camaraderie, knockabout humor, excessive quaffing, questionable life choices, hand-to-hand combat, and explosive surprises, 

The World's End

Re-teams director Edgar Wright with actors Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, following their hits 

Shaun of the Dead

 and 

Hot Fuzz.

Rotten Tomatoes:  90%

The tale begins on June 22, 1990. In a suburban U.K. town, five boys in the prime of their teenage youth celebrate the end of school by attempting an epic pub crawl together. Despite their enthusiasm and the downing of a slew of pints of beer, they fall short of seeing their quest through, to the last pub on their list, The World’s End. Twenty-odd years later, “the five musketeers” reunite to hit twelve pubs in one night. As the gang attempts along the way to reconcile their past and present, an increasingly insane and dangerous series of encounters with old haunts and acquaintances makes them realize that the real struggle is for the future—not just theirs but humankind’s. Reaching The World’s End is the least of their worries… Also starring Martin Freeman and Rosamund Pike.

"Easily one of the year’s best comedies, the movie thrives off the chemistry between its leads, with Pegg painting a very funny portrait of emotional paralysis and Frost demonstrating a heretofore unseen talent for intimidation. Wright, meanwhile, rallies with a strangely affecting finale, offering a corrective to the stealth lectures of American man-child comedies by presenting immaturity as a fundamental component of the human spirit. "

Tickets: The World's End

Following the film, we'll check out availability at CBC or Doyle's for, hopefully, outdoor discussion with libations and dinner.  Please note that we will not make reservations on Labor Day Weekend, but hope that Sunday Early Evening is not completely Sold-Out!

See You at the Movies,

John

    In spite of waiting around in the lobby of the theater after the movie I didn't connect with the meetup.

    As for the movie itself, it had way too much gratuitous bashing for me. The message I got from it was "we are fucked up but we like it that way because we are free". I read that sort of SF story in my teenage years and liked it. These days I look for more subtlety in a movie.
