Pete and Brigette Review The World’s End

The World’s End


Describe it in 25 words or less.

Pete: Gary King gets his old high school friends back together for a reunion/pub-crawl.

Brigette: Old friends get together for a pub crawl they never finished when they were young, but find that things have changed back home.

Any particular reason for choosing this film?

Pete: The trailer looked very interesting and hilarious.

Brigette: After Pete and I watched the trailer, we both looked at each other with excitement and said, “We HAVE to watch that!”


Pete: Adventure/Comedy

Brigette: Adventure/Science Fiction

Who was your favorite character and why?

Pete: Gary King because he stuck to his plan no matter what.

Brigette: Gary King because I wish I could be so irresponsible.

Who was your least favorite character and why?

Pete: The entire “population” of Newton Haven because they just made everything so difficult.

Brigette: The townspeople of Newton Haven because they were boring.

How was the casting?

Pete: Totally brilliant, the best I’ve seen in a long time.

Brigette: Superb.

Did it grab you immediately or did it take a while?

Pete: Grabbed me immediately and actually gained intensity throughout.

Brigette: It grabbed me immediately and kept my attention throughout. There were times when I was literally on the edge of my seat.

Favorite quote:

Pete: “To err is human, so… errr.”
– Gary King

Brigette: “I don’t believe this. A man of your legendary prowess drinking f***in’ rain! It’s like seein’ a lion eating some hummus.” – Gary King to Andy Knightley

What would you change?

Pete: Maybe the ending…it went a little weird for me.

Brigette: The pubs. I wished they hadn’t all been “Starbucked”.

How was the soundtrack?

Pete: Brilliant: the best one I’ve heard for a long time.

Brigette: Awesome! You can listen to it for yourself, we’ve added it to Grooveshark.

Have you watched other films by the same director/actor?

Brigette: I really enjoy Simon Pegg films and when he teams up with Nick Frost, it’s guaranteed entertainment.

How was the ending?

Pete: A little weird for me.

Brigette: Unexpected.

What was the moral of the story?

Pete: A true friend is one that sticks with you even if you change.

Brigette: If your favorite pub gets “Starbucked”, be afraid, be very afraid.

Who would you recommend it to?

Pete: People who enjoy a beer and a good laugh.

Brigette: To people who want to be free to do what they want to do and have a good time doing it.

Beer pairing: (Pete’s specialty)

After much deliberation and debate (I almost went with water): Fuller’s ESB

Favorite Architectural Detail: (Pete’s other specialty)
