The boys are back.
Went to see Hot Fuzz tonight with Petey. It was everything I had hoped it would be. I was a bit worried that Simon and his gang wouldn't be able to maintain the standard they set with Shaun of the Dead, but they did just fine.
The cast (and casting) is brilliant, though for the life of my I can't understand why Steve Coogan (and Cate Blanchett, for that matter) would want to perform uncredited. Peter Jackson also shows up in a cameo as an uncredited (but murderous) Santa.
Much gore in the last half hour, but nothing less than one would come to expect from this particular gang of miscreants.
Lovely respite from my labours, but back to programming tomorrow. My goal is to have the SiWC program roughed in and ready for approval by the end of the week. Still working out invites, though, which makes this tougher...
My _secret_ goal is to find three days on the weekend and thereafter to finish DEADLINE once and for all -- for now. For this I may need to run away from my responsibilities, if I can. We'll see.
