A triple bill of British comedy features from the hit team of Simon Pegg, Nick Frost and Edgar Wright. In 'The World's End' (2013), galvanised by Gary (Pegg), 40-somethings Oliver (Martin Freeman), Andy (Frost), Steven (Paddy Considine) and Peter (Eddie Marsan) return to their home town for one more attempt at trying to reach the legendary pub, 'The World's End'. But after setting out on their quest, taking in watering holes such as 'The Two Headed Dog' and 'The Famous Cock', the friends' objective soon pales into insignificance when they realise that the fate of the entire human race may ultimately rest in their hands. In 'Hot Fuzz' (2007), when a hotshot young London sergeant, Nicholas Angel (Pegg)'s arrest record puts the whole Metropolitan force to shame, his superiors shunt him to a rural posting hoping they've heard the last of him. The sleepy hamlet he's posted to however, behind all the lace-curtain politeness, is a hotbed of grisly murder and vigilante-ism. His diligence and character sits ill with the locals - all except the Sergeant's layabout son Danny Butterman (Frost), who's a huge fan of the cop buddy movie genre. The pair bond and end up taking on a sinister cult of local pensioners in a guns-blazing, granny-kicking, rocket-launching gore-fest aimed at restoring order. 'Shaun Of The Dead' (2004) fuses the style (and copious bloodshed) of classic zombie films with observational suburban comedy. Shaun (Pegg) is a useless but likeable thirty-something who works in an electronics shop in Crouch End. He doesn't get much respect from his fellow staff, even though he's standing in as temporary boss; his girlfriend Liz (Kate Ashfield) has had enough of his lack of direction and penchant for downing pints in the local pub; and he doesn't get on with his stepdad (Bill Nighy). Things get worse when the living dead make their appearance, threatening to spread their zombie curse across the nation. Will Shaun be able to rise from his sofa to save the lives of the two women he loves - Liz and his dear old mum?
Just to inform other potential buyers I will list the subtitles to each movie in the blu ray boxset: Shaun of the Dead: English SDH, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Dutch Hot Fuzz: English SDH, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Japanese, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, Greek, Korean, Norwegian, Portugese, Swedish, Traditional Mandarin The World's End: English SDH
For £20 you get a fantastic bargain - I owned Shaun and Fuzz on DVD, but for £20 I thought I'd upgrade to BR. What you get is the three films in separate Amaray cases, each with hours of bonus material (everything and more from the DVD releases) and each has an Ultraviolet copy. The 3 Blu Rays are housed is a really nice metallic slipcase.
Shaun Of The Dead is an all time classic, Hot Fuzz (for me) is the low point in the trilogy and The World's End is by far the oddest of the three but with very strong performances from Simon Pegg and Nick Frost.
A great set- 10+ hours of bonus material, UV copies, and excelent picture and sound for all three films.
The films are absolutely impeccable, love all three!
The casing was only very slightly damaged when I got the box set, something I always half expect when ordering such things online, but the big problem for me is the use of Ultraviolet as a digital copy in any DVD or Blu Ray. I can only say that Ultraviolet is utterly rubbish and not worth a second of your time. I saw that some people got put through to iTunes when they complained, but in my opinion the digital copies should run through something like iTunes in the first place because then they'd (a) be of a good quality and (b) they'd actually work properly.
But again, the films are absolutely fantastic, it's just a shame that Ultraviolet was chosen to accompany them.
My favourite series of films! The World's End is my favourite film ever! My only problem is how bad the blu ray is for Shaun of the Dead! The audio is way off. I'm going to buy this on DVD as well, because I can hardly hear the voices over the music...
