The World’s End Review

Rated: R

Genre: Science-Fiction / Comedy

Is it time to review another genre comedy already? Well, aren’t I just the luckiest. For those unaware, this film is the third in what has been dubbed as the “Blood and Ice Cream Trilogy”.

Well, this was very different.  Others who are aware of this movie probably know where I’m coming from when I say that this movie will inevitably fall into the “underground critical darling” genre for this year.  Indeed, I foresee many a fellow critic lavishing praise and awards upon Fruitvale Station, beyond those which it has already received.

*Gasp* A movie that’s not an incredibly high budget action movie?  Well, I can already see my viewing figures getting cut in half for this review…
