    Fincher's best movie since Fight Club. And that's all I'll say.

    Finally, a Tarantino movie I can hold in the same equivalent as Pulp Fiction. It's got a lot better pacing that most Tarantino movies. The performances overall, are fantastic (I hope Dicaprio gets his overdue Oscar for it) and amazing action. There's a shootout in this movie that's one of the best(and bloodiest) action sequences I've seen this year. My (VERY SMALL) issues are an almost excessive use of nigger. I know it's how people talked at the time, but…

    George Miller, you fucking GOD.

    Thank you for making the movie that's been dwelling in the recesses of my mind since I was 6.

    Yes, I watched it a 4th time. I can confirm it is my new favourite movie of all time.

    Don't judge me.

    I haven't seen the movie, but I watched the trailer 105 times, if that counts.

    There is a point late on in the movie where JK Simmons' character says that he pushes people past whats expected of them. Funny enough, thats exactly what this movie did for me. I expected it to be a movie that although I would enjoy, it wouldn't be high on my top 10 list.
    And yet, it pushed past my expectations to not only be my favourite film of the year(miraculously dethroning The Raid 2), but one of the best I've seen in the past decade so far.

    If I had to sum up this movie in a single word, I'd use unsettling. And I mean that in the best way possible. Also, Gyllenhaal deserves at the very least an Oscar nom. Will it? I'm not sure. But his performance is without a doubt, one of the best of the year.
