If you liked Shaun of the Dead you'll like this...really enjoyed it, it's not trying to be anything monumental, just a good, fun film.
Spaced is one of the best sitcoms to come out of Britain in my eyes, and unfortunately is strictly for the limited cult viewing, because not many people seemed to have ever watched it.
I loved Shaun of the Dead - hillarious film.
But i Watched Hot Fuzz last week and i was diappointed to say the least. The film actually failed to make me laugh more than 3 or 4 times. It wasn't even very interesting and the action doesn't even start until the last 20 minutes or so. Granted it's full on from then, but it's too little to late.
Tedious attempt at trying to make something original out of something that's been overdone on our average wednesday nights on tele.
I have only seen it once, however, and i truly believe that the more you watch a comedy the more you understand it - and, i'm not the most observant person, so i definately missed somethings in that film. But from a first viewing i felt severely let down.
I hate saying this but:
The trailer showed all the funny bits.
I think Shaun of the Dead is the most overated film I've ever seen. The majority of it just isn't funny. I've tried watching it several times and just get bored. Once is more than enough.
