Good Stuff: Hot Fuzz

hot fuzzBecause sometiimes you just need stupid.

This movie is what happens when two brits binge-watch awful (or is it wonderful?) American cop  movies, and channel all that inspiration into a pastoral English village.

Explosions, fire, splatter, rogue swan, black-robed cults. What’s not to love?

Hot Fuzz is my favorite kind of comedy – it spoofs the idiocies of a particular genre, but it does it so well that it actually becomes an exemplar of the genre. Like Gurren Lagaan does for giant-robot anime, this does for gun-slinging testosterone-squirting cop movies.

If you’re looking for a film to accompany a couple of pints, you couldn’t really do worse.
