    Hot Fuzz

    ★★★★★

    A few years after Shaun of the Dead, Wright, Pegg and Frost set out to make (and top themselves with) Hot Fuzz, a wonderfully absurd send-up of Hollywood action/police movies that's just as hilarious and entertaining as Shaun of the Dead, if not more so. I've watched this one more times than I care to mention, and that's not counting re-watching various scenes that I love.

    This time, Pegg is Nicolas Angel, an overly-devoted but extremely-skilled police officer in London…

    ★★★★½

    After Baby Driver, I thought it would be worth revisiting Edgar Wright's Cornetto Trilogy.

    ★★★★½

    Edgar Wright has done it again.

    I've always been a massive fan of his work since the Cornetto trilogy, so of course that Baby Driver was on my horizon for a good while. I knew I'd love it, but my expectations were surpassed immensely. Action-packed, well-cast, and brilliantly-directed from start to finish, it pretty much has everything I'd want in this kind of film. It's simply a perfect example of my love for cinema.
