Dear Edgar Wright: We Need to Have a Chat About Women [**Baby Driver SPOILERS**]

First of all, I want to tell you that I'm a huge fan. I've thoroughly enjoyed all your films, even loved some of them, and I adore Spaced. I adore your facility with pop culture references, and I love your quick, music video style. But we need to have us a chat about women. It's not that you write them poorly, it's that you barely write them at all. [SPOILERS about Baby Driver]

Edgar Wright’s “Three Flavours Cornetto Trilogy” Is the Perfect Survival Guide For 2017

Edgar Wright is already one of my favorite directors, and his collaborations with co-writer and star Simon Pegg are already among my favorite films, but what amazed me is how relevant the "Three Flavors Cornetto Trilogy" — Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, and The World's End —  are to the current state of the world. They can basically work as a how-to guide on surviving the world 2017 will bestow upon us.

Ronda Rousey talks a lot about body positivity and revels in the fact that she doesn't have a "typical" body type. So, when fans saw a recent promotional image of her from an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon where her arms looked suspiciously small, they mentioned it. She explained and apologized for the image on her Instagram.

Johnny Depp May Star in Edgar Wright Adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s Fortunately, the Milk

Sure, Neil Gaiman has written quality fantasy fiction (Anansi Boys) and comics (Sandman), but he's at his very best when writing for a young audience. Gaiman is at the height of his powers when writing for children, as evidenced in Coraline, The Graveyard Book, and more recently, Fortunately, the Milk. Now, director Edgar Wright and Johnny Depp are in talks to help bring the sillyfunnyweird adventure to the big screen!

Spaced Newbie Recap: “Gone”

This has to be the best episode of Spaced, if we’ve basing it solely on sheer ingenuity. It’s inventive in its storytelling method, rich in its characterization of Tim and Daisy, and a hell of a lot fun, taking a silly pastime and making it a cornerstone for the episode itself.

Spaced Newbie Recap: “Help”

What this episode of Spaced does so brilliantly is, after spinning it’s characters in opposite directions, it’s able to ravel them all back in by the closing moments in a way that makes sense. Their worlds are becoming more and more intersected with one another, and “Help” proves just that. It’s also an episode that shows progress for each of the characters. I wouldn’t go so far to say that by the episode's end they’ve matured, but they’ve certainly put some effort into moving towards that goal.

Spaced Newbie Recap: “Mettle”

The group is splintered in “Mettle” until they’re all brought back together in a fun cap, providing one of the few fantastic episodes where the cast isn't all working together. It’s also an instant great for the series, incorporating all of what makes Spaced so much fun in one episode with clever homages, fun pairings, and intelligently-shot humor.

Spaced Newbie Recap: “Ends”

“Life just isn’t like the movies.”

Can all season finales mimic what the season one finale of Spaced managed to accomplish?

Spaced Newbie Recap, “Epiphanies”

Is there any song in existence as instantly feel good as “Come On Eileen” by the Dexy’s Midnight Runners? What a way to start the episode. Hell, what an episode in general. It doesn’t seem like much of a reach to say that the sixth episode “Epiphanies” is Spaced's finest installment to date.

Spaced Newbie Recap: “Chaos”

Despite an action-packed episode courtesy of Tim’s adoration of Star Wars, “Chaos” almost seems to be a relaxed version of the show. While it's certainly not a weak episode (does this show do weak episodes?), it’s definitely a more sedated version than we’ve gotten for the prior four weeks. Despite this, Edgar Wright goes all out in his love of quick cuts, exaggerated close ups, and sound effects paired with both.

Spaced Newbie Recap, “Battles”

We finally got more Mike this week!

With this weeks episode of Spaced I saw two more Edgar Wright-isms introduced in the early stages of his career. First, there was his love of people jumping out of windows and out of scene, which would of course come back in Scott Pilgrim vs The World and The Worlds End. Then, Tim says to Brian "you've got some paint on you" which can't help but make me remember "you've got red on you" from Shaun of the Dead.

Spaced Newbie Recap, “Art”

My word, is David Williams' character Vulva ever on the eerie side.

Spaced Newbie Recap, “Gatherings”

I don’t see myself ever not saying this, but I loved this episode! It had me laughing essentially from the beginning until it ended, while allowing us to learn more about our oddball lead characters. The premise is again deceptively simple: Daisy, like many of us, is an enthusiastic procrastinator and decides to throw a party instead of sitting down to write anythin

Spaced Newbie Recap, “Beginnings”

There are no filmmakers like Edgar Wright. Wright has taken what’s fun about the cinematic experience and projected it through a lens that’s full of cheeky humor, impressively diverse visuals, and an emotional thorough line. All the while, he takes familiar narratives (buddy cop movies, zombies and aliens) and compresses them into a more singular story, while simultaneously broadening the topics to find something that can reach past those formulaic tropes.

Edgar Wright Is Making A Steampunk Oliver Twist Movie Which Sounds Awesome Don’t Even Lie To Yourself
