[Hot Fuzz]

We caught Hot Fuzz on opening night here, with a more-or-less sold-out crowd, and the verdict? AWESOME. I think it’s better than Shaun of the Dead. Which, don’t get me wrong, I love, but it’s definitely uneven & it’s clear that Wright came from TV. The team’s learned a lot since then, though, and Hot Fuzz manages to be both a great send-up & a great film in its own right. And now I’d really like to see it again.
