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
Posted by HighVoltage, Thu Aug-02-07 11:18 PM
way better than Shaun of The Dead imo.
305339, agreed

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
305681, in pop culture...comedy shows, music videos, award shows, etc.

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

305534, we see action movie parodies all the time? what?
Posted by mc_delta_t, Fri Aug-03-07 01:39 PM
Plus I thought there were a lot of great, original, jokes.
305388, Got it in my blockbuster que. Cant wait.

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.

Why do people keep calling you when you are trying to watch a movie?!

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
Posted by lakerspride1228, Fri Aug-03-07 03:36 PM
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

305604, Yeah, that looks like it may be good.

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

Posted by dunk, Fri Aug-03-07 07:49 PM
it was hilarious...loved the every bit of it.
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?
