    Synopsis


    Shaun of the Dead
    It's often said that the true character of a man is only revealed in times of dire crisis, and for likable, lovelorn loser Shaun (Simon Pegg), that moment of reckoning came when the dead rose from their slumber to feast on the flesh of the living. A hapless electronics store employee who spends most of his spare time downing pints at the local pub with his roommate, Ed (Nick Frost), Shaun's life seems to fall apart when he is dumped by his girlfriend, Liz (Kate Ashfield), and his obnoxious stepfather, Philip (Bill Nighy), shows up to berate him for not being more attentive to his caring mother Barbara (Penelope Wilton) -- especially since he forgot to send flowers for her birthday. Things take a turn for the worse when the dead return to stake their claim on the Earth, and though the chaos that follows threatens to swallow up all of England, it's up to Shaun to keep his cool and prove himself once and for all by successfully rescuing Liz and his mother. With his trusty roommate by his side, nothing -- not even the living dead -- can stand between Shaun and the two most important women in his life. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    The World's End
    Five lifelong friends reunite to complete a historic pub crawl from their youth, and find that reaching the fabled World's End tavern will be no simple undertaking while they also fight for the future of all mankind. Twenty years ago, Gary King (Simon Pegg) and his pals embarked on the ultimate drinking marathon. But the beer got the best of them, and they failed to drink their final pint at the World's End pub. Now, as die-hard rebel Gary approaches middle age, he summons his old friends back to their hometown for another round. With each pint down, Gary and the gang take another step toward reconciling with the past. Yet just when it starts to look like their goal is in sight, the pals realize that a much larger struggle is currently taking place, and that the future seems particularly grim -- not only for them, but for the entire human race. Nick Frost, Paddy Considine, Martin Freeman, Eddie Marsan, and Rosamund Pike co-star in the final chapter of Edgar Wright's "Three Flavors Cornetto Trilogy," which began with 2004's Shaun of the Dead and continued in 2007's Hot Fuzz. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    Hot Fuzz
    A top London cop who is so good at his job that he makes his fellow officers look like slackers by comparison is "promoted" to serve in the sleepy village of Sandford in this contemporary action comedy from the creators of Shaun of the Dead. Police constable Nicholas Angel (Simon Pegg) always gets his man, but these days his impeccable record seems to be more indicative of his fellow officers' shortcomings than his own formidable skills as a keeper of the peace. Loathe to stand idly by as their once respectable track record is steadily soiled by the hyper-competent actions of one lone overachiever, Sergeant Angel's superiors at the Met soon determine to remedy their problem by relocating the decorated constable to the West Country village of Sanford -- where tranquil garden parties and neighborhood watch meetings stand in stark contrast to the violent crime and heated gunplay of the city. As Sergeant Angel does his best to adjust to the relative calm of his new environment, his oafish new partner Danny Butterman (Nick Frost) strives to gain the respect of his fellow constables while sustaining himself on fantasies of his favorite action films and police shows. Later, just as it begins to appear as if Sergeant Angel has been relegated to an uneventful existence in the relative calm of the countryside, a series of horrific "accidents" lead him to suspect that the tranquil hamlet of Sanford has fallen prey to a sinister plot which reeks of foul play. Jim Broadbent, Timothy Dalton, Steve Coogan, and Martin Freeman co-star in the Edgar Wright film. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      This trilogy is a good buy! Hot Fuzz is by far my favorite in the three because it is *packed* with references throughout-- the most blatant being that it is a satire of cop movies, the main character refutes all the "cop movie cliches" saying they don't happen in real life, then by the end all of the references cliches happen. But it has sooo many subtle references to itself that you can watch it a dozen times and still not catch everything (reusing dialogue, lines that seem throw-away but are clues to other parts of the film). Shaun of the Dead does the same, but I'm not sure if to the same extent. The World's End gets a bit odd because the pace and camera work tries to replicate the increasing stress and drunkenness of the characters (without making you motion sick), so it takes some getting used to.

      Fantastic trilogy of adult British comedies

      This "trilogy" (the three movies are not connected narratives, but rather are referred to as a trilogy for their common themes of relationships and a running gag involving fences) of films directed by Edgar Wright are fantastic examples of what British comedy films do so well and what American comedies don't. The movies not only deliver great spoken jokes, but also great visual comedy. Edgar Wright understands so well that cinema is about what's inside the frame and he uses this to his advantage, always blocking to maximize the humor in it. All around each movie is hilariously funny and are first rate examples of excellent story telling.

      I'm an aspiring filmmaker and this trilogy gives me all three if edgar wrights visual comedies and also supplies commentary which is very important to me. Unfortunately the Shaun of the dead DVD doesn't have the quentin tarantino interview which is bit of a let down but I can't complain too much.

      I wanted to buy the Blu-ray set but my local Best Buy couldn't locate it in store, so I opted for the DVDs. I'd never seen World's End before, and I thought it was meh compared to the other two. All DVDs have the standard set of extras and whatnot.

      If you want to see the evolution of Simon Pegg and Nick Frost as a movie team, then this is the trilogy for you. All 3 films are entertaining and funny, each in their unique way. In my opinion, this set is shelf-space worthy.

      If you haven't seen these movies shame on you. One of the best comedy collections you will find while delivering great action and storytelling. I would give it more stars if I could.
