This slice of fried gold just made my day.

/yeaaaooohh boyyy! *clink*

Oh, I can't wait.  Looks awesome.

I think Simon Pegg, Nick Frost and Edgar Wright need to start another trilogy after this.
 
2013-05-22 01:26:43 PM
Looks great, definitely will watch it

I like that Nick Frost is playing the straight man this time.
 
2013-05-22 01:54:11 PM
So exactly like Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz. I'm on board,
 
2013-05-22 02:05:00 PM
Damn, I kind of don't want to see anymore trailers but they make me so happy.

Hope it's better than that Paul turd.

Pretty much this.  Even the media tour footage on the Hot Fuzz DVD was awesome.

I don't believe that was directed by Edgar Wright. You need the whole trio to achieve true greatness.

Do they go on about how anyone who isn't an athiest is an idiot? I love when they do that.

So looking forward to this.

Anyone plan to see the end of the world type movie Rogen is doing?  "This is the end" is the title, I think.

If that one comes out first, then definitely. I know fark hates on those guys, but when they're all together they're pretty damn funny.

I might see it anyways for the hermione scene.

I'd love to see both flicks in double feature format, with a lengthy break after The World's End to go out and catch a buzz, then come back in for This is The End

My schedule for worlds end ruins that plan. Watch the first two in order and drink a beer every time they mention/show drinking. Then go out and watch worlds end.

Probably going to need dinner in between.

well, as World's End isn't out til August, my dreams of a double feature are pretty much shot too, but that sounds like a brilliant idea too.

That would have been MUCH better if they hadn't been so damned preachy and did so little research. It's like a Seth McFarland/Ricky Gervaise level of smug stupidity.

And most importantly?

This means that Simon Pegg and Nick Frost will have to make another duel appearance on Top Gear.

Paul was very okay. It wasn't bad, but it's not anything that rises to "you must see this" levels.

For whatever reason, I didn't really care for  Shaun of the Dead. Like, it wasn't bad, but by the time I finally got around to seeing it, I just had no reaction to it, whatsoever. The best part for me was when Jessica Hynes showed up as part of the mirror-universe Shaun-crowd, because it was a nice callback to "Spaced".

God I hope they do that again.  We went to the Atlanta show and it was one of the best theater going experiences I've ever had.

Maybe it was because zombie flicks were played out by whenever you watched?

I, for one, am so psyched this movie is finally coming out. This is the first movie in probably a decade I'm actually looking forward too.

Been waiting for this for four years. Bring it on.

Spaced needs more love. Has any channel ever aired it over here in the states? Some of their very best work.

Idk about broadcast channels but last I knew it was on Netflix....I watched the whole thing over about 3 days in my spare time.

Why was it cut so short?

I don't recall ever seeing it on the schedule of any TV networks. But it's streaming on Netflix. That's close?

Seriously. I LOVE that movie. Pegg and Frost finally get to completely geek out, every line Bateman has is comedy gold, Lo Truglio and Hader are great, Blythe Danner is adorable as hell, Sigourney Weaver gets to pistol whip people while wearing an evening gown, and they totally trash religion and rednecks.

What's not to love?

We caught it on the short lived Trio network back in 2005 or so (guessing; it was definitely after Shaun of the Dead came out).

I think it was more that the movie was way overhyped by the time I watched it. I adore  Hot Fuzz, I love "Spaced", and I'm totally looking forward to The World's End.

Grungehamster: Spaced needs more love.


It's good, but it's definitely better when you're in your twenties. Rewatching it now, and my urge to smack the characters is slightly exceeding their humor value. And holy shiat- 1999? Fack, that was a long time ago.

Paul. I really, really loved how they showed that once someone is made aware of space and especially extraterrestrial life, they instantly become atheists. After all, no religion has ever embraced aliens.

Yeah, but it had the synchronicity to be on around the time the Star Wars prequels came out, which made for some comedy gold.

Bilbo Bagshot: I was like you once. Blonde hair. Scraggly little beard. Childlike ears. Full of beans, and spunk. I let my principles get in the way of things. I punched a bloke in the face once for saying Hawk the Slayer was rubbish.

Tim: Good for you.

Bilbo Bagshot: Yeah, thanks. But that's not the point, Tim. The point is I was defending the fantasy genre with terminal intensity, when what I should have said was "Dad, you're right - but let's give Krull a try, and we'll discuss it later." [pause] The Phantom Menace was eighteen months ago, Tim!

Tim: I know Bilbo, but... it still hurts, you know? I mean, that kid wanted a Jar Jar doll!

Bilbo: Kids like Jar Jar!

Tim: Why?

Bilbo Bagshot: What about the Ewoks eh? They were rubbish! You don't complain about them!

Tim: Yeah but Jar Jar Binks makes the Ewoks look like... farkin'... Shaft!
