Speaking Of Zombies
While Noumena may consider 28 Days Later the best zombie movie of the last several years, my heart belongs to Shawn of the Dead. How those guys were able to make a movie that spoofed zombie movies while being itself a really good zombie movie blows my feeble Yank mind. Well, they've done it again with Hot Fuzz. There's not a scene in the whole movie without at least a chuckle, and several that just start with a hearty laugh and don't stop. Is this Shakespeare? No, this is a buddy cop movie. It's got all the pieces including the schmaltzey, "Why I became a cop." scene, but it's brilliant. I'll watch anything these guys put out.
