DVDstruction: Bullet Porn

Hot Fuzz | 2007
Yeah, it’s a comedy. But so what? Sure, most of the movie concerns hyper-violent super-cop adapting to the cozy life in a small town village. But you can barely tell by the way it unfolds, because director Edgar Wright films shoplifters and runaway geese with the same ultra-serious ferocity of Michael Bay shooting... anything.

But it’s Fuzz's finale that earns it a tier on our list of lists. Imagine dropping Chuck Norris off in Twin Peaks on an Adderall binge with a Smith and Wesson scholarship. We’re all anxiously awaiting High Def versions of the unbridled stupidity found in favorites like Point Break and Bad Boys II. But until then, Hot Fuzz’s affectionate love serenade to the two more than suffices. See for yourself.

The Disc
In addition to being quite the visual triumph, Hot Fuzz is the very rare occasion that a studio actually packs in more goodies than the Standard disc.*

There’s over 3 hours of bonus content, with four commentaries featuring the director, the stars, one James Bond and actual policemen, as well as a particularly funny lesson in censorship, which we’ve totally ruined below. It's also a double-sided HD/standard combos, for the none of you thinking about making the jump to HD DVD.

Trivia
The St. Nick that stabs Nicholas Angel in the opening is none other than Lord of the Rings director, Peter Jackson.

*UPDATE: That is until, this 3-disc edition dropped on Feb 5th. Save your emails.
