Shaun of the Dead
dir. Edgar Wright
I've never really been a fan of the zombie genre. 28 Days Later was pretty cool because it was much smarter than the brainless zombies it depicted. Shaun of the Dead, however, improved upon Danny Boyle's work by adding humor to the mix while still keeping the film smart (even if the characters aren't). Shaun truly is a perfect blend of comedy, drama, and horror: the funny stuff is hilarious, the dramatic stuff is legitimately tear-jerking, and the violent stuff is gory as hell.
