That's exactly why. I didn't dislike it, and seeing the more refined and better products of their humor beforehand didn't help either.

Yeah you do! Even if you didn't find Pegg and Frost and company funny (which based on your earlier comments, you already do) all the references would kill you. At least it's finally available on R1.

Chief Dalton: Which director?

Lance: James Cameron. He said there's no chance, no chance...

[Meanwhile, Fagin finds Scumbo and summons him]

Lance: Years ago he bought the rights to this manga, a best seller. The main character is an effeminate cyborg, just like me. I wouldn't even have to act, just be myself. Oh, Dalton, I don't know what to do, I don't know what to do...

[All of a sudden, Chief Dalton rises from his chair and gives Lance a savage shake]

Chief Dalton: YOU CAN ACT LIKE A WARRIOR!

[gives a quick slap to Lance]

Chief Dalton: What's the matter with you? Is this what you've become, an internet geek who cries like a woman? "Oh, what do I do? What do I do?" What is that nonsense? Ridiculous!

[Dalton's unexpected mimicry makes Fagin and even Lance laugh; around this time Scumbo comes in]

Chief Dalton: Tell me, do you spend time with your father?

Lance: I don't know him.

Chief Dalton: Not good. Because a man who doesn't know his father can never be a real man.

[gives a quick look at Scumbo and affectionately embraces Lance]

Chief Dalton: You look terrible. I want you to eat peyote, I want you to go on vision quest. And a month from now this James Cameron big shot's gonna make the movie you want.

Lance: Too late. They start shooting in a week.

Chief Dalton: I'm gonna make him an barter he won't refuse. Okay? I want you to leave it all to Great Spirit. Go on, go back to the pow-wow.

[a gratified Lance leaves]
Deserves to be on the new page.

This.

And then read Scott Pilgrim. And then we can be giddy together with excitement.

Hot Fuzz is probably my favorite straight-up comedy from the past decade.

I finally saw this film tonight.

What a breathtaking, visually stunning movie, despite some lame dialogue in the second half.

I kept thinking about Dances With Wolves while watching it, only this time the Indians won.

A long time ago, I was in Burma, my friends and I were working for the local government. They were trying to buy the loyalty of tribal leaders by bribing them with precious stones. But their caravans were being raided in a forest north of Rangoon by a bandit. So we went looking for the stones. But in six months, we never found anyone who traded with him. One day I saw a child playing with a ruby the size of a tangerine. The bandit had been throwing them away. Because he thought it was good sport. Because some men aren't looking for anything logical, like money. They can't be bought, bullied, reasoned or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch Scott Pilgrim.

Tangerine.
