Film: Hot Fuzz

[The Odeon, Maidenhead]

As local cinemas go, it couldn't be more different to my previous one. There'll be no more red and green Automaticket stubs and chandelier-lit theatre. The staff don't yet know us by name - and I suspect that'll never happen. On the other hand, we now have the luxury of more than one screen and all the latest films on their release date.

It seems appropriate that the first film we watch here is this, the closest you get to a British blockbuster.

And it's really quite good. In particular the tightly edited punctuation sequences which were reminiscent Darren Aronofsky's "hip-hop montages". Worth a look, so long as you can get past the deliberately excessive violence.
