The Films of Edgar Wright

Cornetto Trilogy

  • Shaun of the Dead
    • We begin with the film that made Edgar Wright famous, his loving parody of the zombie genre. It's also the first film in what eventually became known as the "Cornetto Trilogy". Article hosted on our sister site, the Inverted Dungeon.
  • Hot Fuzz
    • His second film in the unplanned trilogy is also, perhaps, his strongest, and the director takes us through a loving parody of the action genre.
  • The World's End
    • The last film in the "Cornetto Trilogy" takes the form of an alien invasion movie. Considered by some to be the weakest, we explore the film to see if it holds up in comparison to its companions.

Other Films

  • Scott Pilgrim vs. the World
    • This frenetic, often time hilarious movie is based on a manga series of the same name. Considered by some to be a dud, we explore the movie to see what all the talk is about.
  • Baby Driver
    • We take look at Wright's most recent, and most successful, film, a sumptuous feast of action and style.
  • Last Night in Soho
    • A student rents a flat in Soho and suddenly finds a new life... and a lot of danger in this supernaural thriller.
