Edgar wright Cornetto Trilogy, which started in 2004 with Shaun of the Dead, could be one of the best comedic movie trilogies to ever exist. The trilogy is named after the brand of ice cream the characters eat in all three films. Wright’s new film Last night in Soho is not a comedy but has a few comedic moments reminiscent of his earlier work.
With that in mind, let’s take a look at this earlier work, ranking films in the Cornetto Trilogy from worst to best. The trilogy consists of Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, and the end of the world.
the end of the world
The weakest of the three great movies, 2013 the end of the world, looked like a rehash of the two films that came before it. Honestly, the kind of back-plot that demands. Five friends get together to take part in a pub crawl they tried as a teenager. Simon Pegg and Nick Frost play Gary and Andy respectively, and the same friendship themes that were among the main plot points for the two. Shaun of the Dead and Warm down are presented here again, although the dynamics have changed. The twist comes when they realize that their hometown, where they returned for their pub crawl, has been taken over as in Invasion of the Body Thieves.
The movie has some solid jokes, but none are as memorable as those in other movies. The cast is excellent but Simon Pegg stands out, mainly because it’s his character’s story that plays out. Globally, the end of the world is a good movie but falls to the bottom of the Cornetto Trilogy ranks.
Shaun of the Dead
The movie that made Edgar Wright a household name, Shaun of the Dead is a horror comedy starring Simon Pegg as Shaun and Nick Frost as Ed, two friends who lead their lives as losers and slackers find themselves caught in the middle of a zombie apocalypse. As if that wasn’t enough, Shaun’s girlfriend Liz, played by Kate Ashfield, broke up with him the day before the zombies appeared.
A comic take on zombie tropes, Shaun of the Dead is easily one of the best horror comedies ever made. The movie is filled with memorable scenes and moments, from Shaun and Ed throwing vinyl records at zombies to the eventual group of survivors meeting their counterparts. But the reason the movie isn’t at the top of this list is that even though it’s comedic and has some memorable scenes, it’s still a bit below the next movie in the series.
Warm down, a 2007 cop buddy comedy action film, is one of the greatest comedies ever made. It was especially painful to put this before Shaun of the Dead, but it had to be done. Starring again Simon Pegg and Nick Frost as Nicholas Angel and Danny Butterman, respectively, the film is about a town policeman who does too good a job and is therefore sent on a mission to a small country town with nothing. to be done until a series of murders begin to occur.
Everything about this movie is awesome. The characters are all unique and hilarious and the suspense surrounding the mystery is great, but the amount of good jokes puts it front and center. The Piece of Tomato Sauce, Aaron A. Aaronson, Peter Ian Staker (PI Staker), yarp, the greatest good, there are so many great and quotable moments in this movie, not to mention the crazy shootout at the end of the movie. and the graphic nature in which some people are killed or injured by Simon Skinner, played by Timothy Dalton. The film is brilliant and holds up with the rest of the Cornetto Trilogy pretty good.
Here is. Warm down take the cake, or the Cornetto in that case. The case for Shaun of the Dead Taking the top spot was pretty close, so be sure to let us know in the comments what you think!
