film: Wright: Hot Fuzz (2007)

I’m not going to try extracting anything from this, because I don’t know if I’ve ever actually seen a cop-action-flick or whatever this movie is based on. But, I will say that I’ve spent the past week working on a website for a yoga center and it only just now occurs to me that on all the breaks during which I’m eating I’ve been watching extremely violent cartoons, and then tonight Bubba and Ash came over to do laundry, and they brought pizzas and Budweisers and we watched this movie. And the truth is that it’s very well done–it’s not “hilarious” like I was promised it would be, which is wonderful, because everytime I’m promised something will make me laugh I end up having to fake my smiles all evening. But this one was made smartly, it can’t quite be pigeonholed in a genre, and just, overall, while it may prove something I’ll forget, it was enjoyable to watch, I mean, I enjoyed watching it, and that’s more than I can say for most films.

But that’s not to say I rated this on Amazon, because as enjoyable as it was, I don’t want it tainting my Amazon recs.
