Fast & Furious 6
The Hangover Part III
Like Romero's best efforts, the movie is motored by a keen observational reality, cleverly twisting the characters' mundane world inch by inch until the real nightmare dawns on them.
| Original Score: 4/5
Some funny moments, but for adults only.
| Original Score: 3/5
Shaun of the Dead is not only one of the single best zombie movies ever made, but it's also as close to perfect as a film can get.
| Original Score: 5/5
A modern masterpiece, this is probably altogether the funniest and scariest film I've seen in years...
| Original Score: 4/4
Comedy and horror are real life partners, of course, and who better to bring all this to life in a zombie movie than the Brits?
Extremely well made but only sporadically engaging...
| Original Score: 2.5/4
I think the movie is one of the most hilarious I've ever seen ... But the symbolism and depth of the movie make me appreciate it as a masterpiece.
In this most apocalyptic of genres, Shaun of the Dead is not unlike a ray of unexpected sunshine - even if it has a little red on it.
| Original Score: B+
...not only a loving, teasing homage to the Romero Dead films. It's also a superb zombie film in its own right...
A romantic zombie comedy that tips its hat to George Romero and mines one very funny spoof that doesn't ignore the rules of the zombie horror genre--though it does tamper with them.
Shaun is able to balance the comedy and the gore in a way that will satisfy both zombie genre fans and less bloodthirsty viewers.
| Original Score: 3/4
The cast make a cosy fit, the patter is still sitcom snappy, but Wright also has the visual snap to carry this saga of backyard apocalypse.
Even when in danger of self-destructing, it cadges laughs with smart lines, silly observations or blokish inside jokes about zombie movies, video games and pub nibbles.
The Office meets Annie Hall meets Night of the Living Dead.
| Original Score: 9/10
Co-written by director Edgar Wright and star Simon Pegg, this gory zombie satire is filled to the brim with charming English wit.
| Original Score: 4.5/5
Writer-director Edgar Wright and co-writer and star Simon Pegg have terrific fun riffing on zombie lore.
| Original Score: B-
What a sheer delight that we now have a romantic comedy that puts false hope where it belongs: in the face of the annihilation of the entire human race.
This is played for laughs, but director Edgar Wright also builds up suspense and dread better than a lot of straight horror flicks
For a comedy, the material is awfully bloody. But it's good, silly fun nonetheless.
| Original Score: B
A more complex film with a lot more plot and character depth than you would expect of a lowly horror genre film.
| Original Score: B
