Hot Fuzz (2007, dir. Edgar Wright)

An over-performing cop is sent to a rural backwater; and then the killings start. Affectionate spoof of US buddy action movies with a touch of Midsomer Murders. Slightly overstays its welcome with a never-ending third act, but very solid and entertaining nevertheless.

Kill Me Three Times (2014, dir. Kriv Stenders)

Three sets of interrelated complications involving a jaded hit man. Great-looking and confidently-directed but thoroughly unfunny would-be comedy-thriller that tries something Tarantino/McDonagh-ish but ends up like 90s wannabes such as Three Days In The Valley.
