The uniue life story of one of Britain's most talented and inventive comedians star of Shaun of the Dead Hot Fuzz and Star TrekZombies in North London death cults in the West Country the engineering deck of the Enterprise Simon Pegg has been ploughing some bizarre furr. Nerd Do Well is Simon Pegg's life story interspersed with the tale of a fictional alter ego Pegg a James Bond figure with a robotic sidekick His coming of age stories and fictional bits are hilarious but once Pegg gets into his movie making period the book loses it's momentumI preferred the nostalgia of the first time he saw Star Wars to the actuality of meeting his hero George Lucas and finding him stand offish There's something heart breaking about seeing childhood hero worship crumble in the face of cold hard reality Pegg's education in film appreciation and critiue make for truly fascinating observations about pop culture films I took his thoughts about how the AnakinFrankenstein scene in the third Star Wars movie could have been made into a memorable and fitting theatrical moment instead of the joke that it was pg 328 329 to my husband who is the most ardent Star Wars fan that I know Husband said in response His way would have made it much better You'll have to trust me when I say that that's very high praiseAnother of my favorite parts in Nerd Do Well was Pegg's explanation for American readers about why the pub occupies a prominent place at the center of British social life I'd never really understood what the attraction was until he painted the sceneI mean in my hometown we have all sorts of dive bars lining main street where any night of the week I could roll in there and meet up with the prematurely aged classmates of mine who will never get out of that place But who wants to do that The bar is the epitome of failure rather than communityWith his homemade uizzes neighborhood regulars and music Pegg's pub seems to be somewhere warm and inviting where I would actually enjoy hanging out It makes much sense to me now why Shaun of the Dead was based around a pub and also why most DnD campaigns begin in tavernsIf you enjoyed Nerd Do Well you may want to read My Booky Wook less Star Wars drugs fairly funny or Just a Geek Unflinchingly honest tales of the search for life love and fulfillment beyond the Starship Enterprise Star Trek angst filled than funny The Harpist of Madrid you enjoyed Nerd Do Well Daniel (Council Enforcers, you may want to read My Booky Wook less Star Wars drugs fairly funny or Just a Geek Unflinchingly honest tales of the search for life love and fulfillment beyond the Starship Enterprise Star Trek angst filled than funny

Simon Pegg Ç 5 Free download

Ows in recent times Having blasted onto the small screens with his now legendary sitcom Spaced his rise to the UK's favourite son status has been mercurial meteoric megatronnic but mostly just plain greatFrom his childhood and subseuently adult obsession with Star Wars. I adore Simon Pegg I happen to be lucky enough to live in one of the only 3 cities that he came to on his US book tour Therefore I got to stand in a long line to meet himget my book signed He was incredibly nice and gracious especially when you realize that he was signing around 500 books in a very short amount of timeI confess to being slightly disappointed in this book If he weren't such a gracious kind man I might give it less stars I think my biggest problem with the book is that it jumps around a lot You'll be reading some story about the public pool he went to as a child and the next thing you know you've got a 5 page dissertation on film theory before you get back around to finishing the pool story It was a bit confusing Also he spends a surprisingly large chunk of the book on the very early days of his childhood which I frankly don't care all that much about and very little on how he actually broke into the world of TV movies or of his experience making his movies which I would have found interestingHowever there was still a lot about this book that I enjoyed There are many amusing anecdotes the teacher who farted his desk into oblivion comes immediately to mind and still makes me chuckle as I sit here for example It's also strangely gratifying to read about someone who as the title suggests managed to turn his nerddom into major success Let's face it most of us sci fi and fantasy geeks aren't living the high life off of our nerdy inclinations I'm glad to know that some of us make it big And I just love how he talks about Nick Frost I envy him that he could have a friend that he loves that much and that he's not afraid to talk about it or express how he feels I think that's brilliant It's truly touching I think it's some of the better stuff in the bookOne last thing I will say is that I noticed another reviewer said that she would love to read a book of Pegg doing movie reviews I wholeheartedly agree His review of the latest Star Wars movies man I just laughed and laughed And he has this re write of the Darth Vader scene in Revenge of the Sith that is a thing of beauty it's absolutely how that scene should have been If only Lucas had let him write it
