One of my favorite films of the year (so far) comes out on DVD today here in the US. While there has been a good deal of critical acclaim for Hot Fuzz I'm not sure how the regular American movie-goer feels. I heard one person I kind of know say it "wasn't funny at all, not even a little" and my friend I watched it with didn't seem to be too into it, but screw those guys, I absolutely love this movie. I've seen it 3 times already and I am pretty certain a 4th viewing is in order tonight. Definitely check it out if you haven't.
Anyway, the reason I'm mentioning this rather obvious news is give people a heads up on the Wal-Mart exclusive bonus disc. Unlike most "exclusive bonus discs", this one is actually very much worth picking up, with three hours of material. The Region 2 DVD released last month was loaded with material spread over 2-discs, but when they announced the Region 1 release they mentioned it would be missing several of those features. Now, Wal-Mart is evil, and I wouldn't normally suggest anyone go near one, but this is the only non-HD way to get a lot of the extras (maybe all of them, I'm not 100% sure) from the R2 set without having to pay a lot to get that one shipped over here. So if you enjoy special features I'd pick this one up. Plus, as you can see, the extra disc has a great image of Nicholas and Danny firing two guns whilst jumping through the air, that's gotta be worth something.
Alright, I suppose that's enough celebrity death and DVD news for now. I will most likely have some music up later on this evening, so be sure to check back.
