Taking a break from the more serious movies previously featured, The Movie Of The Week this time around is "Hot Fuzz", directed by Edgar Wright in 2007. Wright is one of my personal favourite directors, with his detailed cinematography and humorous spin on just about everything he creates. Out of his best known 'Cornetto Trilogy' with Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, the buddy-cop Hot Fuzz is certainly my top pick.
As a former London constable, Nicholas Angel (Simon Pegg) finds it difficult to adapt to his new assignment in the sleepy British village of Sandford. Not only does he miss the excitement of the big city, but he also has a well-meaning oaf (Nick Frost) for a partner. However, when a series of grisly accidents rocks Sandford, Nick smells something rotten in the idyllic village.
