Day 20. The World’s End (2013). Directed by Edgar Wright.

The World’s End (2013) score: 74%

Thematically speaking, The World’s End is a slightly weaker film than Shaun and Hot Fuzz. But it’s still massively fun and knows what to keep familiar for continuity’s sake, like the (sometimes too prolonged) comic fight scenes and the fixation with the great British pub(s).

It’s a sloppy farewell, a drunken goodbye. A messy “cheers!” on the wobble home. You probably need to be drunk to get the most out of The World’s End, because it’s like the last part of a night out. It’s erratic, full of adrenaline and easily excited, and isn’t keen on the concept of limits.
