    ".......I'd like to be a queen in people's hearts. But I don't see myself being queen of this country...."

    I'm always fascinated by movies that cast American actors as British characters who are odd and unusual: Angelina Jolie as Lara Croft; RDJ as Sherlock Holmes; Emma Stone as Abigail in The Favourite.

    Am I in denial or did Edgar Wright peak after Scott Pilgrim? I was there for when Spaced predated the internet referencing pop culture, and became a fan since.

    The World’s End was a satisfying trilogy conclusion, but the movie kinda felt like everyone had grown beyond the point where further collaboration seemed more like nostalgia than progress.
