I recently watched "Shaun of the Dead" on DVD -- excellent. Written by and starring Simon Pegg, SOTD is funny, original, and, believe it or not, has a strong story with that most elusive quality, Universal Theme. The shots are beautiful, and comic timing and strong attention to detail make this movie, well, good.
Nick Frost stars with Pegg in the upcoming "Hot Fuzz", a comedy-action about a big-city cop trying to solve a series of strange crimes in a sleepy small town.
HF delivers the same fresh comedy and inventive detail that bring each scene to life (like the tag on the shotgun in the above still) as SOTD.
Working Title Films has a series of video blogs made during production. They're very good -- in #10 production is halted due to yet another rainy day -- Pegg's comments are a hoot.
Ropeofsilicon has three HF clips that are, dare I say it, brilliant -- each scene manages a series of punch lines that are both funny and endearing. Very much looking forward to this one. Fresh.
