305331, Just saw 'Hot Fuzz'! WTF???|
Posted by Easy Rawlins, Thu Aug-02-07 10:47 PM
That shit was funny as hell for about the 1st hour then it just went bat shit insane. I've haven't laughed that hard in a while.
LOL @ the Point Break & Bab Boys II homages too.
305335, the movie is hilarious and excellent|

305368, definitely underrated|

but i like movies like that because you don't enjoy them because everyone else is talking about it, but because they're actually good

I didn't love it. I chuckled a few times but never really got into it.
305383, really? i was dissapointed...|
Posted by ternary_star, Fri Aug-03-07 07:42 AM
we see action movie parodies all the time...none of it felt very fresh.
and Shawn of the Dead is actually a good movie beyond just being a parody...the story in Hot Fuzz was pointless. i only chuckled a couple times.
305397, you kidding?|
Posted by tappenzee, Fri Aug-03-07 08:45 AM
I thought it was a great action movie in its own right as well as a parody
305411, there are other action movie parodies?|

that's the only other one I know

can't really think of anything from this movie that was an original take on action movies...
i didn't *hate* it...it was just instantly forgettable
305724, i can't recall any of that|
Posted by hardware, Sat Aug-04-07 03:04 PM
not sayin its not true, i just don't see that kind of thing often
305980, 'Last Action Hero' did it 14 years ago|
Posted by ternary_star, Sun Aug-05-07 09:14 PM
not saying it was a good movie, but, still...
the 'Starsky and Hutch' movie, 'Team America: World Police', 'Naked Gun' to a certain extent, the 'Sabatoge' video by the beastie boys, a shit ton of skits on MadTV and SNL...
i dunno, i just don't think completely copying a shot from an existing movie is funny. like, i get that the revolving camera shot is a Michael Bay trademark, but is recreating that shot really funny? or staging a shoot-out with old people...it just didn't work for me.
306116, Loaded Weapon 1 did as well if I'm not mistaken|

Great movie. Bought it on Tuesday. I have to watch it again though. I spent most of the movie working on my stats problems and talking on the phone.

305659, personally I prefer SOTD, but HF is a can't-miss film, too|

305470, just saw it last night|
Posted by dubari, Fri Aug-03-07 11:41 AM
yeah, shit was hilarious.
i almost fell off the couch laughing at the point break homage.
it was also a very well made film, something not usually seen in comedies or action films
305488, Loved it|
Posted by JWBIII, Fri Aug-03-07 12:08 PM
I saw it in the theatres and me and my girlfriend were dieing with laughter. My bro and his wife didn't like it all, so I don't consider their opinions in movies anymore.
When Simon Pegg says "Shit just got real" towards the end, it was worth the price of admission.

I was really enjoying the movie, and once it took that turn I loved it. Really one of my favorite movies I've seen in the past year or so.
305567, I saw it 2 nights ago|

I loved it, thought it was excellent. I was cracking up, but this movie also had some great action. The best part was easily the church tower falling down on Messenger.
305578, great movie but..|
Posted by xbenzive, Fri Aug-03-07 04:35 PM
it should be cut 15-20 mins. short.
305581, Check out Spaced if you can|
Posted by Kellsworth, Fri Aug-03-07 04:38 PM
A TV series from the same guys who did Hot Fuzz and Shaun of the Dead. I loved all 3. And i just noticed Simon Pegg in Band of Brothers briefly lol.
305595, ooh. thanks for that.|
Posted by hardware, Fri Aug-03-07 05:58 PM

305609, Excellent show|
Posted by NoShelter, Fri Aug-03-07 06:51 PM
It's unavailable in the U.S. so don't feel bad about downloading it. I got season 1 and 2. Its an excellent show. A nice single-cam show with a million pop culture references

305966, I bought Shaun of the Dead on DVD without seeing it prior...|
Posted by DeePhunk, Sun Aug-05-07 08:02 PM
...and absolutely LOVED it. Great replay value on that movie.
Should I do the same w/ Hot Fuzz?
305970, why bother asking this?|
