So, off we went to go and see Hot Fuzz last night and what an incredibly funny film it is! At the weekend I saw Spaced which allegedly got the ball rolling for Shaun of the Dead and I have to admit I just didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t get Spaced at all.
That being said Shaun of the Dead was one of the funniest films I have ever seen, but I would say that Hot Fuzz topped it. I am not going to spoil the plot but it had loads of funny twists and turns, plenty of top notch cameoÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s, Steve Coogan, Martin Freeman, Stephen Merchant, Bill Bailey and plenty more. For me one of the best things was that it was set in the South West and I think it was filmed in Ross on Wye.
I can see why some of the Daily papers are panning it as it basically takes the Michael out of their readership, but for me it was spot on. I wonder how long it is before they both end up directing and Hollywood blockbuster.
A cracking film.
