Showing stories

Stories are human. They’re a deep part of what makes us people, and of how people learn. Everyone can tell a story (though some can do it better than others). But only a special few can show a story.

Edgar Wright is one of those people. He’s the storyteller behind the Cornetto Trilogy (Hot Fuzz, Shaun of the Dead and The World’s End), as well as a range of other movies like Scott Pilgrim vs. the World and The Adventures of Tintin. As this video so beautifully shows, he’s an expert at showing people a story so they can have the fun of putting the pieces together (without hiding the pieces in the next room over, arthouse style).

Folks, I recommend to you: Edgar Wright.

    That’s a coincidence – we watched Hot Fuzz just last night. We loved it, so we’ll try to get some more of Edgar Wright’s movies to watch. Thanks for the recommendation.

    • Perfect timing! I reckon you’ll really enjoy Sean of the Dead too. It would be great if you could wait before watching The World’s End though – I haven’t seen it yet, and it would be great to watch it with you. That said, I’d be happy to re-watch all his work.
