    I've been looking forward to this for a long time, but that trailer doesn't instill me with a lot of confidence. I'm definitely seeing it though.

    I can't fucking wait.

    Just that split-second expression from Martin Freeman at the end made me laugh harder than I've laughed in ages. That guy is a master.

    And it's great to see Paddy Considine in this. He was so fucking funny in HOT FUZZ, but he's completely terrifying in the brilliant DEAD MAN'S SHOES. That's a movie worth seeking out if you're into gritty revenge thrillers.

    I think HOT FUZZ is a fucking masterpiece. If the Oscars took comedy seriously that script should have been nominated. I think it's incredibly well-structured and the character work is exemplary.

    But yes, it's probably a good twenty minutes too long.

    Hot Fuzz is terrific. The best thing Timothy Dalton has ever done.

    The genius of HOT FUZZ is that every joke works as a joke on its own, but then works on another level later on in the film.

    Just one example is when Rafe Spall says "You want to be a big cop in a small town, go fuck off up the model village!" And the final fight of the movie takes place in... the model village.

    It's a movie you can watch 3-4 times and still pick up on callbacks and jokes that are multi-layered. Even stuff that's almost subliminal, like the books that the twin Bill Baileys are reading.

    I hope that same insane level of detail is present in THE WORLD'S END. I have no reason to doubt that it is.

    THE ROCKETEER, anyone?

    But he's funny as hell in HOT FUZZ.

    Hah-hah!!

    The scene where Pegg is talking about his Uncle, and Frost says "What a cunt" almost had me on the floor, I was laughing so hard.

    To be honest, I wasn't crazy about Hot Fuzz the first time I saw it... thought it was just alright.

    The second time, however, completely won me over, and every time after that I enjoy it more and more.

    Hot Fuzz was amazing. It's like The Big Lebowski in that it gets better with repeated viewings.

    The climatic battle is the most ridiculous thing ever put on celluloid.

    I also loved how they thought there was some serious, high level scheming going on in Sanford, thinking it was some kind of intricate conspiracy to kill all of these people and how they may have been connected, but in the end the town killed them for the basest, most superfluous and arbitrary reasons (Based on the initial instincts of the cops on scene).

    Plus, any movie that makes callbacks to Point Break get an insta-pass.

    And a class move by Simon Pegg to do this movie. Yeah, I'm in Star Trek, I'm in Mission Impossible...but here are my roots.

    Why would you want your brand and movie more easily advertised.

    Having shit exclusive to Yahoo! and MSN for a few hours is much more important that people actually seeing it

    I was the same way. The first time I saw it, I enjoyed it but was underwhelmed. Then I watched it again and loved it. The thing with Pegg and Wright is they write very intricate scripts where every thing has a payoff. With Ed telling Shaun what they'd do the next day in SotD and murder plot banality in Hot Fuzz. I don't know if it was intentional or not, but I like how the trailer is like an 80s trailer with a really weird voice over that details the plot and lead to one line from the movie. I just hope the Seth Rogen movie with a similar title, premise, and visual effects doesn't hurt this. They've been talking about this movie since Hot Fuzz, I wonder if Seth stole the idea when they were working on Paul. I doubt it.

    Just saw it. Easily the best movie I've seen this summer. By a long shot. Go see it.
