If you liked Shaun of the Dead - and especially if you also liked Bad Boys II - you’re going to love Hot Fuzz. I got to see it last night thanks to a pre-screening and Ryan’s generosity (he won passes and took me along). As the guys on The Totally Rad Show said, EVERYTHING in the movie sets up for the climatic scene, or at least some later joke. I absolutely love the sense of humor these guys have - there were so many subtle jokes throughout the entire flick, and a lot of times I was the only one laughing. It may not be everyone’s taste, but I love it.
I’ll be seeing it again this weekend with the Sunday Night Film Club. We’re going to the 4:45 show at the Georgetown AMC Loews, and you DC folks should join us.
