Hot Fuzz ****
I saw Hot Fuzz tonight. I liked it very much. If only for the sight near the end of Tim from Spaced and an ex James Bond fighting amongst the buildings of a model village! It was like a homage to those marvellous Godzilla vs Mothra style B Movies. Go and see it, its really very funny...

Whoo! chased by monkeys! That's pretty cool... I might have to add that to my "7 things I have wanted to be" list.

But, you must elaborate!

It is indeed cool. Although, because I was quite young at the time, it was also rather terrifying.

I think I may give the subject a full post in elaboration at some point in the coming week.

Aww, thank you for the endorsement! I'm glad to hear that the unhappiness has at least been balanced out with contentedness and happiness. And yes, tell more about being chased by monkeys!

Hot Fuzz was f***ing brilliant. Really gives me hope for British cinema after all that Richard Curtis ("Crap Actually" etc) stuff.

It was a total FU to the Daily Mail crowd. And it was laugh-out-loud funny. Loved it.

Welcome Dave,

I agree, I thought Fuzz was cracking.

Favourite line:
"What's the situation?"
"Two men, and a f*** load of cutlery!"

Just had a quick look at your blog. Saw the Hammer connection and knew who you were immediately!
