Best Of Blu-Ray – Comedy

A Count-down Of The Top 5 Comedy Moments On Blu-Ray

We’re looking for laughs with Comedy! They say laughter is the best medicine and thanks to the likes of Will Farrell and Simon Pegg in The Other Guys and Hot Fuzz we are always feeling well.

Top Five Are:

The Other Guys

Scene: The Freeze-Frame Bar Scene. This tops our list of comedy moments for many
reasons. Firstly, Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg’s facial expressions caught
mid-action in a series of drunken incidents in the freeze frame bar scene are
side-splittingly funny. But it’s also so well shot, and packed with tiny
details, that it honestly defies easy explanation. Catch all the intricacies of
the scene on Blu-ray and you can’t help but think ‘How did they do that?

Paul

Scene: The Guys Meet Paul. Often, the best CG is the kind that we don’t even
notice. In this scene, the realistic visual effects that go into creating the
alien Paul are seen for the first time, merging seamlessly with the live action
in high definition. Simon Pegg and Nick Frost’s first meeting with Paul is a
classic comedy moment for the new decade, and easily makes our top
five.

40 Year
Old Virgin

Scene: Chest Waxing Scene. This scene is funny for so many reasons. The sheer
amount of hair being removed with each strip, combined with the facial
expressions and mild expletives uttered by Steve Carell are comedy gold.
Whether you’ve seen the film already or if it’s your first time, you’re sure to
laugh and wince even harder when you experience it on Blu-ray.

Hot Fuzz

Scene: Somerfield Shoot-Out. This epic shoot-em-up scene sees bullets whizzing,
bolognese exploding, cutlery flying, jam jars smashing and a trolley style
battering ram charge as Pegg, Frost and their SWAT team ambush the bad guys in
Somerfield. Side-splitting comedy and fast-paced, jaw dropping action unite to
make this an ideal Blu-ray comedy scene.

Napoleon Dynamite

Scene: Dancing On Stage. Napoleon Dynamite is your typical geek – his thick
glasses, dull voice, afro hair and toothy grin make him seem anything other
than cool – that is until he cracks out his dance moves. When he steps out on
stage to support best friend Pedro and Jamiroquai’s ‘Canned Heat’ kicks in,
Idaho’s finest nerd transforms into an all-conquering dance machine.

Alex Moss Editor

Alex Moss’ obsession with film began the moment he witnessed the Alien burst forth from John Hurt’s stomach. It was perhaps ill-advised to witness this aged 6 but much like the beast within Hurt, he became infected by a parasite called ‘Movies’. Rarely away from his computer or a big screen, as he muses on Cinematic Deities, Alex is “more machine now than man. His mind is twisted and evil”. Email: alex.moss@filmjuice.com
