David Nusair’s “The World’s End (August 11/13)” Is Better Than It Looks

In response to David Nusair’s 283‑word review of The World's End on Reel Film Reviews

By ,

David Nusair’s “The World’s End” is an interesting and unique entry into the pantheon The World’s End reviews. It looks like it is going to be excruciatingly pointless and amateurish, but in this case, looks are indeed deceiving.

The first innovation that Nusair brings to the table is the answer to the riddle of how to discuss The World’s End effectively without spending the whole time talking about all the other associated films. Nusair creatively places his work at the end of a page called The Films of Edgar Wright.” His review follows the three distinct and separate reviews of the other films, satisfying the need to provide context, and maintaining the appropriate amount of independence for the current film’s discussion.

This frees Nusair up to discuss only The World’s End, a rarity to say the least. Now while 283 words doesn’t make for a particularly long review, it makes for an excruciatingly long paragraph, and that is sadly the case with Nusair’s work, which starts to eliminate the good will that had previously been created.

In fact, Nusair doesn’t seem to know how to properly separate his ideas into manageable portions. One particularly offensive occurrence of this is when he attempts to list all of the main members of the cast along with their character’s names inside of a single set of parentheses. It’s a shame because there is a lot of good insight buried among the excess. You’ll just have to dig for it.
