100 Comedies Edgar Wright Wants You to Watch

Edgar Wright movies
Edgar Wright wants you to laugh through all of this coronavirus business with these movies.

What I love about Letterboxd is that you can network individually with filmmakers and see what they watched and what they like. In these crazy times, I am running out of things to stream. Lucky for me, Edgar Wright wants to keep me laughing. 

He went on Letterboxd and wrote, "To get you through these tough times, please enjoy a generous helping of SOME of my favourite screen comedies that I’ve enjoyed over the years. I could easily do another 100 so don’t say ‘Where’s so and so?’. Just sit back and enjoy the movies. Let us know below, which ones you raise a smile. (NB: No, I'm not so immodest to put my own on here. x)"

So without further ado, check out his list of the best comedies!

Of course any of Edgar Wright's own films are great, Hot Fuzz being my favorite and Shaun of the Dead being perhaps a bit to relevant to current events but still good. Also the Spaced TV series.

I'll also suggest Space Trucker Bruce (because it's my movie)
Bruce practices the way of the Zen Space Trucker to keep from going crazy spending six months by himself in a house sized spaceship hauling 20,000 tons of hog fat.
On YouTube and Amazon Prime.

There's a cool b-movie YouTube series (and San Francisco TV show) called Creature Features which shows old sci-fi and horror movies with quirky hosts and cool celebrity guests.
