Disaster Movies Suck

Let me start by saying I don't think I've ever seen an average disaster movie, let alone a good one. The film 2012 was just awful, and Day After Tomorrow wasn't much better. Then throw Nicolas Cages terrible Knowing into the fold I would say the disaster movie is the worst category of film out there. But there maybe a shining light at the end of the tunnel. In October this year we see the return of Simon Pegg, Nick Frost and director Edgar Wright for the movie The World's End, and being a Shaun Of The Dead and Hot Fuzz fanboy I have very high hopes for this one. Even after the disappointment of Paul which to be fair wasn't directed by Edgar Wright or as bad as some critics might say, we are back with the old trio. Based on 5 childhood friends reuniting to take an epic pub challenge which ends up at the fabled The World's End, coincidentally. Starring a British heavy cast with the likes of Martin Freeman, Paddy Considine and Eddie Marsen, I think finally we may have a disaster movie to enjoy. As this maybe the end of the Simon Pegg-Nick Frost-Edgar Wright movie making partnership as they all go there separate ways in the business I have no doubt the finale of the blood and ice cream trilogy will be a good one.
