Hot Fuzz

And this is my BOOMstick!
Sounds good. These guys know what they're doing, so I hope this turns out as well as Shaun of the Dead did.

And this is my BOOMstick!
Plot Outline: An action/cop genre movie in the vein of Shaun of the Dead.

Pegg will also lead the charge as a top London cop exiled to a sleepy rural village - think Insomnia meets The League Of Gentlemen.

Rounding out the cast are Nick Frost as his bumbling 'rookie' partner, along with Edward 'The Equalizer' Woodward, Rafe Spall, Paddy Considine, Billie Whitelaw, Anne Reid and Martin Freeman. Cameras roll on 15th March
Hopefully they won't sell out and keep the same low key charm of Spaced. Either way, should be good. Here's hoping...



there's a frog in my snake oil
CHUD.com summarises it thusly in their review:

The movie, in many ways, is Agatha Christie getting triumphantly butt****ed by Michael Bay... With jokes.
They also say it's as good as Shaun.

Hooray for character-led violently parochial action comedy parody homages, that's what i say

This film looks absolutely great. I don't think its gonna sell out ...thats a ridiculous statement. But seein Simon Pegg again will be hysterical!!!



I'm not old, you're just 12.
Dying to see this. Shaun of the Dead is one of my all time favourite comedy flicks, and this looks hilarious judging from the trailers.

I'll just echo Monkeypunch; loved Shaun of the Dead, greatly looking forward to this. Can't think of much else to say. Guess we'll all just wait for it to come out, and then gush some more.

I'm gonne be gushing all he way home tonight (So to speak) as i'm seeing it after work. Walked through Leicster Square last night and caught Simon Pegg and Nick Frost pulling up for the premier. They had a police escort. Looked pretty mental. And Tim Dalton is looking old!

The Fabulous Sausage Man
Just saw it, it's great. But it's not really a homage to action movies, like Shaun of the Dead was a homage to zombie films (the latter was so spot-on it truly resembled a Romero film but set in Britain and with more humour). I'd say it's more like Spaced: The Movie but crazier. It's got the obligatory Shining reference that they always had on their show, in addition to references to classic 70s horror like The Wicker Man and The Omen. All the explosive stuff we've seen in trailers actually only occurs in the last 30 minutes of the film. Hot Fuzz is closer to the 70s cop dramas like Serpico and Dirty Harry ("Fascist!") than actual 80s action flicks. The film is really a blending of a variety of different genres and styles, including horror (obviously, the team are big on horror movies) and, in one point, a Western. It's utter lunacy, actually. Perhaps the maddest movie of the year.



Me Love You Long Time.
I loved Shaun of the Dead, Cant wait to see this film.
