It's pretty weak, the viral marketing was stronger than the film. I sometimes think the Cornetto Trilogy is overrated, but then you see something like this and remember how films that tried the same thing generally turned out in the past, and indeed often still do.

Thought the first half (before it becomes a monster movie) was okay, then when the genre changes it sucks. But the main surprise is that Crispian from Kular Shaker isn't that bad a movie director.

They should've stuck to copying If....

Funny.  That's exactly how I felt about The World's End.

World's End for me was up, down, up, down and so on.

Edgar Wright's visual sequences were brilliant. Then when he stopped moving the camera and let the actors read from the script I realised how unfunny Pegg had become as a writer.

But then, Wright starts moving the camera again, and we're back in the game!

It's a great example of a talented director tackling a pretty bad script.

That's the level select code for Sonic the Hedgehog, isn't it?

Also the code to Anna Friel's bra clasp.

Pegg’s upcoming work schedule isn’t looking that brilliant, really. One shit-sounding indie comedy and a single episode of The Boys (playing the father of the character that was drawn to look like him). With the fourth Trek film looking increasingly unlikely, and no guarantee when/if he’ll get to be in any more Miss Imps, has the shine gone off his career?

When I said "up, down, up, down and so on" in front of Anna Friel, she told me "error.  Code invaild" and then told me to "get out, before I call the police".  Perhaps the code only applies to the North American version of Anna Friel?

Pegg should employee Mr Sheen as his agent.

I use a Anna Friel emulator, but if you're going with the real thing you'll need to discreetly put a boot disc in her handbag.

Given that they still managed to crowbar Bing Thames into MI3 or 4 or whichever one had no role for him beyond a cameo at the end, I reckon he'll be all right for income for a couple more years, and I'm sure his name carries enough weight that he could get a few more low-to-mid-budget films off the ground. That's even without another team-up with Edgar Wright, whose career seems pretty solid at the minute.

Plus, for a bloke who started out in UK sitcoms, two major supporting roles in massive Hollywood blockbuster franchises is pretty fucking shiny. I imagine he could retire right now and feel quite happy with his career.

They're making two more Missions: Impossible in a row, so I assume Pegg will be in those at least.

I'm a bit surprised he's not taken advantage of the golden peak TV age to write and star in some mini series or suchlike.

I think he's quite sensibly wringing Hollywood for all it's worth. It's not like he's Forrest Whittaker or Glenn Close or another established Proper Actor who can flit between telly and film with relative ease. And he doesn't really have the kind of cachet that lends itself to fancy prestige dramas either. I'm sure he'll be able to return to TV (or Netflix or something) fairly easily if the film work dries up, so why rush?

Pegg embodies averageness I reckon. Spaced was great for its cultness but I think his film output has all been boilerplate wank. Obviously it's daft amounts of cash and big Hollywood circles you get to move in. But it's creatively and artistically shite.

Well yeah, as I said at the beginning of this thread, Pegg's films tend to be rather crummy, unless they're written by him or part of a megabucks Hollywood series. I expect everything else is just whatever he can get.

I was thinking more of his artistic ambitions. Plus, while he's not likely to be a Hollywood leading man at this point, I'd have thought six episodes of something on HBO or Netflix would generate further buzz around him without monopolising his time. He did appear in some miniseries with Jon Bernthal a few years ago and it seems like Netflix will chuck money at anyone, so it's not impossible.

He's the Danny Dyer of 'nerd stuff', typecasted and above it, but it's also his bread and butter and he's not quite good/clever enough to pull himself out of it.

Apparently he's in a thriller called Inheritance and for the role he's done one of those Hollywood body transformation things:



Looks like he's doing a codeine shit in that picture too.

It's the ball from the 1981 England v Australia test match played at Headingley.

I could do a body transformation if someone painted over the top of a picture if me, too.

He looks cold, that's for sure.

I don't know. He comes across quite intelligently in interviews and his scripts seem to have a fair bit of thought put into them. It does seem like he's comfortable in his little niche though.
