  • I have to admit, I was afraid The World's End was going to disappoint me. I've been a huge fan of Wright, Pegg and Frost since their days on Spaced. Knowing this is the last flavour of the Blood and Ice Cream trilogy I was actually a little concerned that this wouldn't live up to my expectations.

  • I'm finding myself hard-pressed to come up with a review of Kick-Ass 2. Ultimately, if you enjoyed the first one, you probably know what to expect and will find that this sequel more than delivers.
