    Shaun of the Dead

    ★★★★½

    Out of all the trilogies I have seen how have I not gotten around to the Cornetto trilogy?!
    Shaun of the Dead is signature Edgar Wright and delivers exceptionally with iconic characters, quirky humor, and non-stop adventure.

    I have come to a simple conclusion in life; if David Fincher is the director then I must watch it!
    Zodiac is a fantastic crime, mystery, and thriller from beginning to end. This film, along with being brilliantly paced for being near three hours, crafts an intricate and lengthy timeline that is never confusing nor stale. The entire ensemble featuring Jake Gyllenhaal, Mark Ruffalo, Robert Downey Jr., and more are dynamically fleshed out and amazing in their roles. Fincher's direction…
