Recently watched The World's End and decided to throw out this poll. I loved pretty much the entire trilogy, but each movie does have its own specific tone and theme, which makes it pretty easy for each one to have a different movie they prefer the most out of them all.

Personally, I rank them as follows:
1. Hot Fuzz
2. Shaun of the Dead
3. The World's End

But it's actually all pretty close for me. Curious to see what will be the general outcome.

Just finished watching the trilogy. No idea why it took me such a long time to get into it, but not having liked Spaced really never put me in the mood for another Wright film. Luckily, the films look much better and are much better paced than the earlier show was (although I will definitely revisit it soon, maybe I do end up liking it after all).

I vote Hot Fuzz because I think it's the best scripted one, and I think the Pegg and Frost duo is the most effective here. Gotta love those buddy cop movies. Shaun of the Dead was great too, and very notable for, as a zombie parody movie - actually being scarier than most "legitimate" horror films and featuring zombies that actually feel threatening, as opposed to all the recent zombie/infection flicks I've seen. Slow zombies > fast zombies, how can people not get that?

I dunno, the remake of Dawn of the Dead has fast zombies and it features the best opening sequence of any movie I have ever seen. Really.

I too am curious to know what generals feel about these films.

Haven't seen it. Looks terrible. Will get to it eventually.

It's not great, but the pre-title sequence is.

It's actually pretty decent as far as remakes go. Probably Zack Snyder's best film.

I like how the current distribution of votes makes the bar chart seem like a sideways middle finger.

The World's End.

I think Edgar Wright's films might actually be steadily improving

Shaun of the Dead < Hot Fuzz ~ Scott Pilgrim < World's End.

Needless to say, I'm looking forward to whatever he has next. Shaun of the Dead—the lowest on my list—is a pretty great comedy; and if that's the "worst" a director can do, I'm really looking forward to the risks he's going to take in the future.
