One of Tarantino's best. Very unafraid to go to dark places and highlight the hypocrisy and disgusting nature of racism. Christoph Waltz and Leonardo DiCaprio make up a cracking supporting cast who fill this film with personality. Jamie Foxx's Django is a no nonsense yet entertaining character with plenty of warmth and a sly wit.
This film isn't an easy watch but if you're familiar with Tarantino's work then you already know that this film will contain strong violence and coarse language from the get-go, but it seems so in place here. This was a much darker period in America's history and very much the world's, not to be taken lightly but also not to be missed, definitely a return to form for one of cinema's most treasured modern maestros.
Definitely one of the best heist films of them all, the dramatic robbery and subsequent shoot-out towards the end is one of the best action sequences ever put to film, always good on a Saturday afternoon.
Spike Lee's unique look at racial tension and the consequences of actions is still very relevant today, the cracking ensemble cast make this all the more entertaining with some highly memorable characters and a structure that makes this the seminal work of Spike Lee's career.
It's easy to see the boys trying to shake off their cult hit TV show 'Spaced' and it makes it all the better, the quirks of each character and their reactions to the zombie-filled environment they find themselves in makes for some brilliant comedy. Filled with an equal amount of splatter and laughs, this is the defining horror comedy of the decade.
Easily the best action comedy of them all, the shoot-out at the end echoes the work of John Woo but ingeniously scaled down to a small village in the English countryside. This is a must-see, hilarious, violent and brilliant.
This is definitely what the Star Trek formula needed, less dialogue heavy discussion and more exploration and action, but still maintaining wit and intelligent characters who are still willing to discuss a given situation. Abrams took a step in the right direction with this and followed it up with a very strong sequel.
