    ★★★★★ Watched 16 Dec, 2012

    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…

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

    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.

    It reminded me of The Dark Knight Rises, except without it being a massive disappointment.

    I was so insanely hyped to see this movie ever since that first trailer came out. Seriously, that “bad guy counseling” scene was like something out of the hopes and dreams I’ve had since I was about 4 years old. Now that I’ve seen the movie, did it live up to my own personal hype? Welll……..yes and no.

    By yes, I’m directly referring to like the first 30-40 minutes of the movie. Everything in that period was perfect. I was…
