The World’s End is occasionally hilarious, and features a madcap performance from Simon Pegg that could be his funniest in a lead role. But it also drags towards its oddly unsatisfying finish, much like a pub crawl with one too many stops.
“This is the End” is often very funny, especially if you enjoy satire that skewers Hollywood stereotypes and gags revolving around weed, masturbation, and other preoccupations usually associated with arrested development.
“Evil Dead”, the remake of the 1981 Sam Raimi cult classic horror film, is a humorless exercise in torture porn that lacks any of the imagination or the fun of the original. It’s the worst thing that a horror movie can be: mindnumbingly dull.
As a zombie film, “Warm Bodies” is certainly closer to “Zombieland” and “Shaun of the Dead” than it is to “Day of the Dead” or anything George Romero put into film. But it’s got one thing in abundance that very few hardcore zombie flicks have: romantic charm.
