The World’s End

A trailer was posted this week for the finale of Edgar Wright/Simon Pegg’s trilogy of films, The World’s End. Starring Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, the film was written by Wright and Pegg and directed by Wright.

20 years after attempting an epic pub crawl, five childhood friend’s reunite when one of them becomes hell bent on trying the drinking marathon again. They are convinced to stage an encore by mate Gary King, a 40-year old man trapped at the cigarette end of his teens, who drags his reluctant pals to their home town and once again attempts to reach the fabled pub, The World’s End. As they attempt to reconcile the past and present, they realize the real struggle is for the future, not just theirs but humankind’s. Reaching The World’s End is the least of their worries.
The Tell-Tale Heart
Here is another take on the classic Edgar Allen Poe story, The Tell-Tale Heart. Starring Rose McGowan, Patrick John Flueger, and Peter Bogdanovich, the film marks the directorial debut of John La Tier.
THE TELL TALE HEART remains true to the original insofar as the story’s protagonist is tormented by the still-beating heart of the old vulture-eyed man he murdered and buried beneath the floorboards of his residence.
