    I noticed Marsan right away. He is a bit odd looking. As for Freeman I'm guessing your SOTD viewing last week was the first since watching Sherlock.

    Naaaah I knew Freeman way before, was familiar with him on BBC Office although I didn't watch, and I LOVE Hitchikers Guide...I wish it were as simple as that Bob.

    I was actually a bit disappointed with The World's End. My own fault for having such high expectations, I guess. I thought it was funny, but not THAT funny. Also, I found Pegg's character to be really unlikable which made it harder.

    I would like to see it again with my Hopes & Dreams glasses on, but I don't know when I'll get the chance.

    's funny Adge, this was the first one(of the trilogy) that really CLICKED with me on first viewing. The others were not what I expected so therefore I had to warm up to them. I wonder if this is the reversal and how that is going to effect the rewatch value. Maybe I won't be as keen on this one as far as repeat viewings. It's quite the pickle. Time will tell.

    Simon Pegg explains the ending of The World's End

    Warning: Major spoilers ahead!
    At the end of The World's End, Gary King (Pegg) faces a choice between becoming his younger, hotter self again in a robot body created by the aliens, or continuing to rebel. He chooses rebellion, and this leads to the destruction of our whole civilization. We asked Pegg if this was basically a choice between being true to yourself or recapturing your lost youth. He responded:
    We don't like to prescribe meaning in our films. We always like people to come away and have to think about what we might be offering. You know, the whole idea about what was being offered to the planet Earth... it might have actually been a good thing. And it might have been better to go along with it. Maybe we should be told what to do. Maybe it's better if we are controlled, because we are erratic and irrational creatures, that don't always make the right decisions.

    You know, for Gary, it's all about control. He doesn't want to be controlled. And the choice he makes at the end of the film has huge ramifications. And it might not have been the right choice. But the irony is, in the final analysis, Gary does find happiness. And it's not through alcohol, it's through being on an adventure with his young friends. You know what I mean? Essentially, also, living, literally in, or rather in an approximation of, the past, because they're in a world which is bereft of what they know. Like the toilet.
