Pick’n Flicks: Attack the Block

What is the best movie to come out in 2011? In my opinion, Attack the Block! An extremely original movie mixing sci-fi with gangsters. A story about the Inner City vs. Outer Space. Attack the Block is a story about a group of South London teenage gangsters become heroes protecting their block from an alien invasion.

I knew I was in for a treat knowing the movie comes from the producers of Shaun of the Dead and also starring in the film is Nick Frost. The writer and director, Joe Cornish, has been a writer in the business for years but is really just at the beginning truly making it in his career.

Attack the Block is surprisingly original. What really drew me into the film was how original the aliens were. Monsters with absolute black fur and glowing blue teeth, no eyes, a type of creature that has never been seen before. These monsters are quick, can hunt, and are insanely brutal with their attacks.

Next time you are at the Redbox, BlockBuster, Netflix, or pirating a movie from a torrent, I would suggest checking out Attack the Block. You will not be disappointed!

If you are disappointed with this movie, then you have no sense of humor and your best friend must be Buzz Killington.
