George A Romero’s Land of the Dead [AKA Land of the Dead] (2005, dir. George A Romero)

A gated community is threatened by an organising army of zombies. The slickest and most mainstream of Romero’s six zombie flicks, Land has some storytelling issues but also verve in its inventiveness and its writer-director’s trademark social commentary.

Margin Call (2011, dir. JC Chandor)

A night and a day in a Wall Street company going under at the start of the financial crisis. Smart little boardroom thriller with a keen ensemble cast working well together. Makes you care about a bunch of suits and their shifty ways with numbers.
