The summer movie season is about to start this week with the release of The Amazing Spider-Man 2, which didn’t make my list. It’s the blockbuster movie season, where studios put out big bucks in order to make an even bigger investment. Like every year, this is the season where we find a big mix of movies, ranging from comedies, to super hero movies, to monster movies, to disaster films, to action-packed thrill rides. Many will turn out to be absolute crap, but a few should blow our minds.
For the most part, movies in the summer are mindless and fun. Never going beyond mindless action and cheap laughs. But here comes The World’s End, during the dog days of summer, to remind you that not all summer movies have to follow that model. The final installment of the, “Cornetto Trilogy,” gives us Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost at their most heartfelt. Giving us a film that is equal parts funny and as it is emotional. It is easily one of the best films of the summer.
