Attack the Block
"Four Lions", and the Simon Pegg and Nick Frost movies (Frost appears here in a humorous role as a pot dealer). The dialogue is comprised almost entirely of incomprehensible British street slang which is part of its charm and director Joe Cornish does an excellent job working with a slim budget. I felt the novelty beginning to wear off towards the end at which point the film regroups for a pretty spectacular finale. "Attack the Block" achieves its objective of taking a concept and making it funny and entertaining.
