Edgar Wright

Starring:

Simon Pegg

Nick Frost

Martin Freeman

Paddy Considine

Rosamund Pike

Eddie Marsan

Plot:

Five friends who reunite in an attempt to top their epic pub crawl from twenty years earlier unwittingly become humanity’s only hope for survival.

Review:

Gary King, Simon Pegg, peaked in high school and he’s unable to move past it. He is stuck and decides to relive his glory days and get the boys back together. They have all moved on with their lives to varying degrees of success, but he’s able to get them all back together because they were bros.

The movie starts out with them doing a pub crawl, the golden mile, 12 pubs. Things quickly go crazy. Aliens, robots, bar brawls, lots of laughs ensue. It’s a hilarious movie, not my favorite of the cornetto trilogy, but it’s still really funny. Nick Frost is easily the best character.

The ending is probably the worst part. For some reason they did an epilogue and showed everyone’s life after the final decision was made and I didn’t like it. It wasn’t funny or fun it was kind of eh. The rest of the movie is great, though.

If you like Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz then you’ve got to see this.

4/5

Review:

I love this movie, definitely in my top favorites. I was lucky enough to get the bluray for Christmas and was finally able to watch it. There are so many great quotes, so many great scenes, this is my favorite of the Nick Frost and Simon Pegg movies.

“You ain’t seen Bad Boys 2?”

The movie perfectly makes fun of all the over the top, adrenaline packed, action movies out there, but it respects them at the same time. It’s a fine line and doesn’t really tip over into over the top spoof territory, but I still find myself laughing throughout.

“Ever fired your gun in the air and yelled, ‘Aaaaaaah?”

Seriously love this movie and if you haven’t seen it I highly recommend it.

Chris O’Dowd

Plot:

Beneath Bruce Garrett’s under-confident, overweight exterior, the passionate heart of a salsa king lies dormant. Now, one woman is about to reignite his Latin fire.

Review:

Cute comedy that I wouldn’t quiet label a romantic comedy though it does have its romantic moments. It was a movie about a man who finally figured out who he was, a salsa dancer. It was pretty funny.

Chris O’Dowd played a great asshole.

When Nick Frost was making the mix tape I told my husband exactly what was going to happen next and I was right. He was naturally very impressed.

Nice movie, love Nick Frost, awesome Simon Pegg cameo.

3.5/5
