Ratings
For a long time now I've been rating films from one to four stars. Starting with The Wolverine review, I've switched to a rating from 0 to 10. Why? Because it is a much better three star film than Man of Steel was. Man of Steel was a 7. The Wolverine is an 8.

A review by Rick Norwood

The World's End The World's End is the best science fiction comedy since the Hugo Award-winning Galaxy Quest. You'll laugh out loud, and it's also good science fiction, with some new ideas. The ending was a bit of a letdown, but aside from that I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright also created Hot Fuzz, the funniest cop show since Police Squad!, and Shawn of the Dead, the funniest horror movie since Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein.

The less you know about it going in to see The World's End the better, so I'll just say that Simon Pegg is not only a very funny actor ("I like this ship! You know, it's exciting!") he is also a very funny writer.
