Hot Fuzz

The Takeaway: There's a point on a man's head where, if you shoot it, it will blow up. This is pure scientific fact. Don't question me.

Format: HDDVD

Proving they aren't a bunch of one hit wonders, the Shaun of the Dead team returns to the silver screen and the shit gets real! I cannot describe to you the pure joy of watching Hot Fuzz. I saw it 4 times in the theater and countless more on HDDVD. And every time - I'm still catching new stuff. Lines that are twisted into something else later in the film, foreshadowing, images in the background - like Shaun - Hot Fuzz is crafted to perfection. It's amazing to me that more producers haven't caught on to what Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg are doing - they are creating content of the highest quality and ensuring that their films live on in the home video market. And it's no secret to how they do this - they LOVE their product and sit with it for a while. A long while even - but they continue to work until the script is so rich and layered that you get the feeling of almost watching a completely new movie on each screening. Simply brilliant. Enjoy, kiddies! It's Paris.
