Edgar Wright

Scott Pilgrim vs. the World

June 29, 2017

After making Shaun of the Dead, Edgar Wright signed on to direct the adaptation of “Scott Pilgrim’s Precious Little Life.” Due to project delays, it would be another six years before his film would hit the screen. Like any good cult film does, it has since found its legions of fans and supporters, proving that Wright and co. know how to put together a top-notch film even if it loses money at the box office.

The World’s End

September 20, 2013

Hellllllloooooooooo! Welcome to episode #100 of The Next Reel, everybody! And what a better way to celebrate than to finish the Three Flavours Cornetto Trilogy series that we started in March 2012 with our episode on Edgar Wright’s latest film, “The World’s End.” Another genre film filled with poignant character moments, riotous moments of comedy, fantastic writing from beginning to end, and solid and assured direction, Wright finishes off this pseudo trilogy (that he started with “Shaun of the Dead” and “Hot Fuzz”) with a film that actually does help tie all three films together thematically while still remaining its own complete film. Join us — Pete Wright and Andy Nelson — as we delve into the frothy tale of five guys revisiting (or to some extent reliving) their past as they try to finish a 12-pub crawl they never completed before only to have it rudely interrupted by alien invaders.
