27 Apr Hot Fuzzy Flaming Skulls, OR.
This last week I was traveling, first to Eugene, OR to hang with my sister, then to Bremerton, WA to see my Parents and Grandparents.
I saw a couple of movies over the trip, “Ghost Rider” & “Hot Fuzz.” I enjoyed them both, although for much different reasons.
I paid $1.50 for this movie. And let me tell you, it was worth every penny.
First off, Nick Cage was actually pretty decent…although the young version of him really looked more like Rob Low…
The fights were extra lame, Ghostrider didn’t even really trade punches with the guys – he just whipped out his magic powers and destroyed them.
Eva Mendes took the cake. She looked super hot in every shot, but had the worst dialogue ever. I can’t really blame her, unless she add-libbed everything. Line after line brought uproarious laughter from my sister and I.
I cannot recommend this movie enough. It is so smartly made and so funny.
The team that made ‘Shaun of the Dead’ takes the same approach to a cop movie. Homages, references, and parodies abound.
The characters, especially Nick Frost’s appears to have learned everything he knows about policing from watching Hollywood movies. Especially ‘Point Break’ and ‘Bad Boys II.’ He asks Simon Pegg’s character numerous questions like “have you ever shot two guns while flying thru the air?” and “have you ever shot a gun while in a high speed chase?” And then…all these things happen. It’s amazing. It’s like every guilty cop movie pleasure rolled into one, but in a smart way, so you feel a little less guilty about it.
See this movie. Support good cinema.
Oh, also the editing was super sweet.
Here are some pics from my trip…
cinema rules. ummm….yeah.
Next week I’ll have another new video.
