The World's End Twenty years after their first epic pub crawl attempt, the “five musketeers” reunite to complete the ultimate challenge – one night, five friends, twelve bars – a boozy quest on which only the strongest will survive. They soon realize that reaching their final pub, The World’s End, may be the least of their troubles. They’re having the time of their lives, ready to take on the world…but tonight they may have to save it. Simon Pegg and Nick Frost reteam with director Edgar Wright in this wildly entertaining thrill ride that critics call “sheer comic perfection” (Peter Travers, Rolling Stone). Hot Fuzz Nicholas Angel (Simon Pegg) is a big-city cop who can't be stopped - but he's making everyone else on the force look bad. When he is reassigned to a small, quiet town, he struggles with this new, seemingly idyllic world and his bumbling partner (Nick Frost). Their dull existence is interrupted by several grisly and suspicious accidents, and the crime-fighting duo turn up the heat and hand out high-octane, car-chasing, gun-fighting big-city justice in this hilarious hit critics are calling "Outrageous! Uproariously Funny!" (Thelma Adams, US Weekly). Shaun of the Dead There comes a day in every man's life when he has to get off the couch… and kill some zombies. When flesh-eating zombies are on the hunt for a bite to eat, it's up to slacker Shaun (Simon Pegg) and his best pal Ed (Nick Frost), to save their friends and family from becoming the next entreé. Novelist Stephen King gushes Shaun of the Dead is “a 10 on the fun meter and destined to be a cult classic" and Newsweek calls it "a bloody hoot!"

The product description is a little vague on the bonus materials that go with this release. Sometimes disk collections skimp on the bonus materials that are found in the normal release. Fortunately, this is not the case with this collection. The disks are loaded with commentaries, out takes, deleted scenes, featurettes, etc., etc., etc.
The back of the box indicates: "Over six hours of apocalyptic bonus features! Including 9 feature commentaries, 11 featurettes, out-takes, deleted scenes and much, much more."
By the way, if you finish these and want more of the same vein, you really must check out "Spaced." It was a 14-epidode TV series, and an absolute must for geeks that love Pegg/Frost/Wright creations.
Really not impressed on the UV code expiry thing - it's happened with movies I've bought from Amazon before. Why would you ever have an expiry date? And Amazon, why would you sell this without telling customers that this was the case?
So let me get this straight - you create a UV system so people can buy movies and counter the online illegal copying threat, and you reward my legal intention and honesty by selling goods with expired codes? It's bad customer karma, that's what it is. Sort it out. I won't tell you again.
Bit of shame because for the low price I paid, these are great movies - Hot Fuzz especially is awesome and entertaining - absolutely love it. Really original story and a boatload of fun.
But I couldn't find it. I saw it being sold for $9 on DVD but I really wanted that blu-ray. Then I saw this trilogy pack and I was like "cool"...then I saw it was under 16 bucks and I was all "shut the front door!!!" Three Edgar Wright films for this price?! It's amazing! Especially considering the fact that I was more than willing to shell out 20 for just one!
Anyway, I watched all three films this week and they ran perfectly! The case and discs were in pristine condition, and I'm excited to watch the special features along with being able to rewatch the films for all of eternity.
Is it three boxes with a wrap to hold them, or one box with three discs?
I can answer that: It’s one box. It has one of those inserts that holds a disc on both sides, plus one on the back part of the inside of the case. One box, three discs, and a cardboard wrapper because who like trees, anyways?
This edition is everything you could hope for -- each Blu Ray is loaded with extras, there are digital copies, the video transfers and audio are terrific. So, if you're as much of a film geek as Wright and Pegg and Frost are, and you love dark, twisted comedy, this set is for you.
Shaun of the Dead - is a love letter to George Romero Zombie films & the movie that serves to introduce the talented team of: Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg & Nick Frost to mainstream audiences.
Hot Fuzz - is a hilarious nod to buddy cop films & has a lot of great over the top action.
The World's End - wraps up "The Trilogy" and is another great nod to Invasion of the Body Snatchers. Also serving to prove that you really can't go home again.
This Blu-ray collection is also packed with extras for each film giving the fan plenty of behind the scenes Cornetto comedy.
