Greetings Evil Geeks, it’s C-Mart here commandeering the TV From the Crypts column for the day to talk about one of my recent favorites, a British import featuring a young Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, with an equally young Edgar Wright handling the directing duties. Way back even before there was Shawn of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, or The World’s End, the trio were hard at work bringing us a sitcom called Spaced.
Greetings Evil Geeks, today’s Evil Movie Review is a movie that I’ve been waiting to lay eyes on ever since it’s title was cryptically announced via Twitter by two of the mega-talented stars behind it. I’m not normally one to pick a favorite of anything, I acknowledge that what I may be in the mood for one minute, might not be so favorable to me in the next, but if for some reason you were to put a gun to my head (let’s face it, there’s probably more than a few folks out there that would love to have C-Mart in that scenario) and forced me to pick a favorite movie of all time, the first entry in the Cornetto Trilogy, Shaun of the Dead would be a strong contender for the title that would eventually come out of my mouth. If there’s two things I love, it’s zombies and comedy; and Shaun is a masterpiece that blends the two seamlessly. While I hold Hot Fuzz in not quite so hallowed a spot, I still think it’s a fantastic movie. After years of waiting and even a wannabe member of the club with the movie Paul (which isn’t a bad movie at all in my opinion, it’s just that Edgar Wright wasn’t a part of it, so it’s forced to stand alone), the third installment of the trilogy is finally upon us with the release of “The World’s End”. How does it stack up against the others? Let’s start dissecting and find out!
