Drinking, Fighting, and Reminiscing in The World’s End

I have enjoyed my year in movies, that year stayed strong for me with The World’s End.

Though I couldn’t say that I could pin each of the characters in this group of guys with specific friends of mine, I could envision such a situation occurring with my friends if we split off now and reunited in 15 years or so.

The drinking with the old gang, who wouldn’t love to experience that? The beginning of the movie is different and not exotic without being boring. It was just enough time to develop the characters in this old crew just enough.

This movie had the fighting fun, though not flashy like Hot Fuzz, which makes sense considering that was an action movie spoof. The first alien discovery scene was a hell of a lot of fun.

The reminiscing of the characters allowed me to reminisce about 80’s movies and my own past experiences without feeling like a total goofball. I loved the touch of This Corrosion by Sisters of Mercy being played at several segments throughout the movie, slowly playing a little bit more of the song each time until the end credits.

The last few minutes of the movie completely shift gears, and I must say, unlike a lot of Hollywood movies these days, I was ready to watch that movie for another hour with that twist. It just got so damn cool all of a sudden!

Please make a sequel focusing on the last scenes of the movie!
