The Blood and Ice Cream Trilogy

October 14, 2009 at 4:01 pm (Movies)

Yea that oughta get your attention. Since DS wrote something I figure’d I’d post something up, and to commemorate the movie I was watching earlier today, I thought I’d post up a well, post about the Blood and Ice Cream Trilogy. The series or “trilogy” of completely unrelated movies is a group of flicks from director Edgar Wright, a Brit who has consistently worked with the likes of Simon Pegg and Nick Frost to produce some of the most entertaining action gore fests. The trilogy gets its name from the common simple fact that the movies are often filled with tons of blood and the main characters eating ice cream, I know how that sounds, simple, but yet it’s not a large factor (the ice cream part) and the whole package comes together superbly. The first film by Wright in the trilogy was 2004’s Shaun of the Dead, a parody of the classic Zombie genre with tons of laughs thrown in for good measure, also catapulting the young career of Simon Pegg into the limelight. The film basically centers around zombies taking over Britain and Simon Pegg, well, killing all of them. In 2007, the group continued with the flick I was watching earlier today, Hot Fuzz, in which Simon Pegg takes center stage in a really boring town where there seems to be a string of murders taking place. Once again in this one he is paired up hilariously with Nick Frost to get several great laughs along with some ridiculously cool action pieces. (The last 50 minutes and special features on the disc are worth $20 alone. The next flick in the set is set to be “The World’s End”. No info has been released for the project yet, however once Wright finishes work on a current television project and Pegg finishes work on Paul, shooting is set to commence. If you’ve never heard or seen any of these great flicks, now is the time to see them. The two released flicks are by far the greatest zombie comedy ever made and one of the best buddy cop movies out there with a fantastic mystery.

    I’ve got Hot Fuzz if u wanna borrow it after Colt. It’s kinda slow in the first half and I was kinda confused as to what it was, but the second half is awesome. I think both u and James would like it. Shaun of the Dead I’ve seen most of but not all.
