Scott Pilgrim Vs The World - by Leah Jacobs-Gordon
Once again, Hot Fuzz is further proof that having Simon Pegg, Nick Frost and Edgar Wright in the one equation, will result in a great movie.
Nicholas Angel (Simon Pegg) was London’s top cop. He was good. So good in fact, that he made everyone else look bad. So, he was reassigned the the quiet town of Sandford. It’s here he meets his partner Danny Butterman (Nick Frost), who knows more about movies than he does about being a cop.
Angel soon finds out that there’s more to the town of Sandford and its inhabitants than meets the eye , as he investigates a string of suspicious ‘accidents’.
I absolutely love Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. It saddens me when people always talk about how great Simon is, but completely neglect to mention Nick. In my eyes, they are the perfect team. On their own they are hilarious, but together, it’s on another level entirely.
Shaun of the Dead is an amazingly hilarious movie. It was bound to be great from the moment it went into production. On one side you’ve got a legendary cast (which includes Dylan Moran and Bill Nighy), and on the other you’ve got one of the greatest directors of all time, Edgar Wright. When you have those two things, you’ve got a movie.
Go out and see it if you haven’t already, and while you’re at it check out Hot Fuzz.
