  1. Hot Fuzz

    I've mentioned before that there are only a few directors who, in my mind, can do no wrong --- Aronofsky, Raimi, Singer and Nolan. Having just seen Hot Fuzz, I'm now going to add Edgar Wright to that list. I don't want to be overly hyperbolic, but I think that the British film industry ought to get down on their knees and thank whatever deity happens to be passing for not just Edgar Wright but for Simon Pegg as well, because their films are not only excellent, but because it means we, as a nation, can finally stand behind ensemble comedy pieces that don't have the words 'Carry' and 'On' in the title.

  2. The Shape of Things to Come, III

    Of those mentioned six months ago; I didn't watch Fantastic Four or The Dukes of Hazzard as they looked awful, I saw Harry Potter & The Goblet of Fire and King Kong and thought they were so-so and I saw The Island, Wallace and Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit, Serenity and The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe and liked them all. A Scanner Darkly seems to have slipped into a Summer 2006 release so hopefully I'll get to see that in a few months.
