Three Flavours Cornetto Trilogy

3 – Hot Fuzz; The Classico of the Cornetto flavours, quite fitting for Hot Fuzz. This film is fairly good as all three in this trilogy are. But when compared to the other two, Hot Fuzz falls short. A combination of elements bring this film down below the rest. It isn’t bad though. The story is fun and just as enjoyable as the prior of the trilogy. The jokes are funny and the conflict is intriguing. With our beloved pair of knuckleheads starring front and center, Hot Fuzz keeps pace with great action and twists offered around each corner. Unfortunately though, it just isn’t quite as memorable as Shaun of the Dead nor The World’s End. Still, it is a great movie to watch. Cinemaster Score: 8.4/10

2 – Shaun of the Dead; The Cornetto trilogy’s Strawberry flavour itself – Shaun of the Dead. The movie that – better yet – brought us the dynamic duo of Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. Director Edgar Wright puts forth what had been his most creative and successful work at the time. The film is just as iconic now as it was years before. Shaun of the Dead has a solid mix of components that as a whole is just as fantastic. There’s the fun action scenes, cool effects with guts and gore, beautiful portrayals of emotions from the cast, and of course – to top it all off – plenty of humour. Shaun of the Dead only barely falls short of the best flavour of the Cornettos. Cinemaster Score: 9/10

1 – The World’s End; The World’s End is the great green mint chocolate chip of the trilogy, offering up the best elements of each entry in the franchise. Simon Pegg and Nick Frost are at their comedic best, along with a new cast that more than hold their weight. Jokes land every time and are just as bitingly clever as they were in its predecessors. The World’s End also has some hilarious physical comedy with action scenes that always entertain. The premise is original with an absolutely unique ending, style, and tone. Amazing special effects, a wonderfully imaginative script, and a cast full of relatable characters fill this film to its brim – causing The World’s End to stand as the best of the Cornetto trilogy. Cinemaster Score: 9.2/10
