Hot damn!

A friend of mine got his hands on advanced screening tickets of Hot Fuzz and I just have to say that the movie is entirely too fantastic to believe. The editing is lovely, in true Edgar Wright fashion - there are a few scenes that I just can't wait to be able to pause and slow-mo and study once this gem is on DVD. Oh, the way they tied in separate storylines happening simultaneously was just gorgeous- and the entire movie is just so beautifully funny and engaging and well written, well acted, well shot that I still can't stop grinning. Aaah! Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, you do my heart good. Never part.

I love dark comedies.

Also: this movie is so easily slashable it's amazing. I mean, really.

Note: there are no plot spoilers behind the cuts, I promise. Just opinions.

And if you have no idea what movie I'm talking about and are curious, here:

So, this movie is a parody of Buddy Cop movies, Action Cop movies, the whole genre, similar to the way Shaun of the Dead lovingly parodies zombie flicks, and in fact the two movies are done by the same director, writers, and parts of the cast. They're also very British, very wry, and very well done. I could write more, but then I'd never make it to class tomorrow. If you want to know more, go on and look up Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz on IMDB or google. Go on, now. Walk, don't run!
