    Hot Fuzz might be my favorite just because I thought it was the funniest. The World's End was alright, but it's been well over ten years since I watched Shaun, so I really should check that one out again before doing a proper ranking.

    Hot Fuzz. As a horror fan, I would think Shaun of the Dead, but nope. Hot Fuzz is just too darn good.

    World's End was good, but didn't enjoy it anywhere as much as the previous two.

    Absolutely adore this trilogy.

    If I had to rank them it would be:
    Shaun of the Dead/The World's End
    Hot Fuzz

    I've seen Shaun of the Dead numerous times and it never gets old. The World's End was a surprisingly saddening and emotionally resonant way to cap off the trilogy.

    Hot Fuzz is one of the best action comedies ever made. It is the rarest of things... a flawless movie.

    Hot Fuzz. The World's End kinda gets better the more you watch it though.

    I’ve only seen parts of World’s End so I can’t really speak on that one. But I absolutely love Shaun of The Dead and Hot Fuzz.

    I think given my age and the period of focus / era of when the film is set, World's End has 'most effect' on me in terms of what it says, (for self disclosure) I had a dependency issue with alcohol in my 20's, it 'spoke' to me more than the other two films, I got 'more from it' as such, found it more personal to me and actually to those involved too.

    The central performances are stronger too, I like the 'reverse' characterisation between Pegg & Frost that happens and I think Frost's performance in particular is really impressive as the 'repressed' dependent for Pegg's Gary King.

    One thing that strikes me about the end of the film though, which I wouldn't have done (but can see why it was chosen as the story's conclusion) was to 'separate' the gang, and in particular, Andy and Gary, given they'd worked so hard to get them to re-connect again, to separate them once gain to me seemed to waste the whole point, but I can see why, in that the 'eternal existence to live a new day' which King was looking for was found in the replacement of his new existence.

    My ranking would be -

    1) World's End
    2) Shaun of the Dead
    3) Hot Fuzz

    but frankly, there is very little between any of them.

    Just happened to watch Hot Fuzz the other day for the first time in an age, its still great after this time, so quotable still today and with great OTT action to boot along with quirky British humor thrown in, a masterpiece all round.

    "You wanna' be a big cop in a small town, **** off up the model village" is still one of the greatest ever lines in cinema history.

    The other two were good as well and fully enjoyable but Hot Fuzz just came along at the right time and one of those films I remember being a great experience in the cinema.
