Tuesday Cap - Vol. 9
Title: Hot Fuzz
Notes: Between SHAUN and FUZZ, many a folk would choose SHAUN, but for me, SHAUN is nothing compared to the sheer awesomeness and utter brilliance of HOT FUZZ. Embracing, acknowledging, and respecting the action genre, from mindless actions films to the buddy cop flicks (BAD BOYS II and POINT BREAK, especially), FUZZ is 'da bomb diggity. There's not a single bad note in this flick's entirety, with every joke and action scene played out in perfection. I've watched it a million and one times, and it never gets old. Simon Pegg is at his best, and Nick Frost delivers the goods with every scene he's in. From the cameos (Bill Nighy, Martin Freeman, the dude who plays Filch) to our leads and 'villain' (Timothy Dalton), there's not a single bad or lackluster performance. Pretty much borderline the epitome of perfection, HOT FUZZ is and forever will remain one of my top ten favorite films ever made.
Discuss: For those who love SHAUN more, what traits of that film are superior to HOT FUZZ? How awesome was Timothy Dalton? Favorite joke? Anxious for the third Wright-Pegg-Frost collaboration?
