Yeah, I've been looking forwards to this as well. Shaun Of The Dead was an hilarious and excellent tribute to the zombie genre, and by the looks of it Hot Fuzz will be just as much fun.

I have also been following this for quite some time. If it is as good as Shaun of the Dead, then it will be amazing

Negative sun, do yourself a favor, and go watch the movie Shaun Of The Dead right now. After seeing that slice of fried gold, you'll realise why we all can't wait for this movie.

The thing that sucks, is that I posted this this morning, from the school computer. Which has no sound. I still have no sound. So I won't be able to watch the trailer with sound for another hour or so ><

*bump*

It's out now in North America. Anybody see it yet?

I finally saw Shaun of the Dead a month or so ago (I did myself a favour ). Found it to be quite an amusing movie. So, without a doubt, I'll being seeing this tomorrow or this weekend.

Give us your thoughts!

Going to go see Disturbia today and then am most likely going to Hot Fuzz right after. I have seen Shaun of the Dead about 5 times and I just can't wait for Hot Fuzz.

It's lovely 'limited' release, so I might not see it in theatre's here ever. Shaun of the Dead never came here but I got to see it via a UK DVD release at about the same time.

Funniest. Movie. Evar.

Man, I went to see it earlier today, and I enjoyed EVERY minute of that film. Wow, the movie is so underrated. Totally awesome. Timothy Dalton was great. And there were also appearances by David Bradley (Argus Filch in Harry Potter) and Paul Freeman (Rene Belloq in Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark. Also, Peter Jackson had a cameo...

Anyway, the film was great. Do yourself a favour and see this film, too.

Well I spent the entire time at my friends house fixing their computer for them (they've had Cable Internet for a good 2 years, and have never had a virus program, firewall, or ad/spyware scanner.

God. Damn.

Anyhow, I'm hopin to see it friday. If not, well I might have to obtain it through, eh, other methods >.> <.<

Dang, Bongo, that stinks. "Scan Complete! 423,827 Viruses Found! A New Record!!"(from HomeStarRunner.com)

Since "Hot Fuzz" is rated R, my parents probably would whine at me if I went. They didn't know that "Shaun of the Dead" was rated R though. Btw, is there anything worse than was in that?

Here's a little parental review for you:
spoiler:
This movie is pretty violent: One of the characters gets his head completely smashed in and obliterated by a large stone; 2 other characters get decapitated; another character's chin gets impaled by a spike; and another character gets stabbed in the neck by large garden shears. At one point you see deteriorating bodies piled in a room. Other than that, just general gun shooting and bullet holes.

From a cursing standpoint, it's not really as bad as Shaun of the Dead was. And there's nothing sexual in it, unless you count fake foam boobs.

cool i wanna go see it!! yeah i generally dont go to theatre if there's gonna be sex in the movie, especially not with my parents. sucks that 300 had it, otherwise i would've took my dad to go see it.


Battle is a pure form of expression. It is heart and discipline, reduced to movement and motion. In battle, the words are swept away, giving way to actions-- mercy, sacrifice, anger, fear. These are pure moments of expression.

It's a very good film. We in England saw it some considerable time ago of course, because we and our nation are superior. Just superior. And we deserve special treatment of this type.

It's rated 14A here in Canada. Meaning, I was able to go without... parents.

Though, after seeing it, I'm kind of surprised it wasn't rated 18A, with all the content that was in it. In comparison to Shaun of the Dead, I would say they were close to being about same, I would say. Otherwise, I think IG summed it up.

Just saw it earlier tonight. It has got to be the most hilariously absurd movie I have ever seen. The last 30 minutes alone is just plain awesome. There some nice cameos too. Anyone who liked Shaun of the Dead will like Hot Fuzz.

Very funny movie, I was kind of surprised by the major genre changes it underwent during the film, but I really liked it because of them as well. The same genre defying style as Shaun of the Dead, I can't wait to see more these two have to offer.

Saw it. I give it an 8/10

It's funny, but it could have used some editing and faster pacing.

Sweetness. I gotta check it out.

I also went to see Hot Fuzz for a second time. I laughed at some of the jokes and scenes more than the first time. Definitely going to get it on DVD.

Are you joking or something? I understand pacing is a personal preference, I my self am fed up with all the new style break neck paced movies, I like fast paced as well as slow paced, but the last few years, hardly any popular movies have a building atmosphere.

Anyway, about the editing, at first I assumed you were being funny but maybe not. I thought this movie had a huge amount of cuts in it. It had that Snatch fast cutting British style I really like, and it was used in the proper places, but it even seemed a bit overkill to me at times. Places where there would be 30-40 in the span of a just a minute or so.

I don't mean cuts. I mean this movie could have been 20 minutes shorter.

The atmosphere imo wasn't building. It built and then stagnated for a good bit, then picked up again. I understand the idea of exposition and murder and no one believes him ya ya we get it. Move along.

Granted the humor kept the stagnation alive but just barely. I might have been just too tired for the movie but I gradually got sleepier as we hit the middle portion of the movie. Dialogue was funny, but not enough to keep me going. Once we hit the second jump to hyperspace though, I was awake and remained so throughout the second half.

I dunno, I just felt that Shaun of the Dead had superior pacing. Even so, we're comparing grand movies.

Also I felt it lacked action for a buddy cop movie homage. I kinda felt like it was joke joke joke joke joke action bit end. Not that I'm testosterone minded or anything, but eh...

I still give it an 8. 9 if it had what I thought it should have had.

Ah I see, you wanted edits for better pacing, I just mistook your point. I think the dragging areas are probably a result of the genre switches. It was all over the place, which i loved, from buddy cop, to slasher, to even an almost 'wicker man'-ish horror/thriller status.

Very funny movie.

I went into it not expecting much ( I tend to hate most modern comedies :/ ) but man, that was incredible.

Definitely plan on watching Shaun of the Dead next chance I get, and I'm going to be on the lookout for Spaced as well.
