Yes, we just had Baby Driver, and it was excellent, but go back to the genius of Edgar Wright's Hot Fuzz. You see, the film has somehow taken on a deeper meaning in the last ten years.

Look, if you need more encouragement - watch our favourite Mikey Neumann explain why.

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.

One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.

Baby Driver is out in cinemas right now, so we sat down with our favourite Edgar Wright while he was in Sydney to talk about the music-fueled car chase spectacular heist film that was ten years in the making.

Is Baby dressed as Han Solo? We asked him that, too.

At first glance, Baby Driver doesn't look like it uses genre conventions in the way that Edgar Wright's other works have. While you can easily see the homages to zombie horror and paranoid sci-fi in Shaun of the Dead and World's End, the fusion at the heart of Baby Driver's DNA is initially more elusive to parse. But once you put sunglasses on and deconstruct it, it's right there: The new movie is a musical where car chases are the "songs". And it rocks.
