If you're still deciding whether or not you should see it, this may help you. Though we can tell you right now, you should.
With the likes of Gravity, The Wolf Of Wall Street, and 12 Years a Slave in the running, it has some stiff competition, but we're will the Golden Globes on this one. Here's why.
1. It's not at all boring
It seems like an obvious thing to say, but when it comes to Oscar films we've gone a few years of struggling not to fall asleep during the winners...Lincoln anyone?
2. It's not too long
At around two hours long, Dallas Buyers Club is one of the few big releases to stick to old school movie lengths. American Hustle, and The Wolf of Wall Street we're looking at you.
3. It's a true story
This is a true story that has never been told before. Matthew McConaughey has been linked to the film for around 15 years and felt so strongly about telling the tale of Ron Woodruf.
Ron is a homophobic, heterosexual rodeo cowboy who contracts AIDS and adds seven years to his life through education and tireless fighting. Not only that, but he forms one of his closest bonds with a gay, transvestite - curve ball.
4. It's actually funny
Despite being a very emotional and ultimately sad movie, it is not a massive sob-fest. The relationship between Ron and Rayon - played by Jared Leto - is honest and genuine, and all real friends make each other laugh, even in the darkest times.
5. It will make you question authority
Matthew McConaughey has said that the biggest change he has seen in himself since making the film, is his tendency to question the world he lives in. The movie follows the battles of HIV and AIDS victims to get medication and the truth behind the pharmaceutical industry in the US.
6. It shows just how stupid homophobia is
Homophobia is just stupid. This film makes that obvious without offering any Sesame Street style life message. It's just so obvious, you can't help but notice.
7. Rayon is such a babe
Jared Leto's Rayon is lovely, sweet and strong. Also, by gum does Jared pull off a dress.
8. It will make you respect Rodeo cowboys
Staying on the back of a bucking bull, holding on with one arm, for more that eight seconds looks completely impossible.
9. Reminder that unsafe sex is not cool or clever
That's one of those things you can never remember too many times. Seriously, for further examples just watch What Happens in Kavos.
10. It's just so good
Seriously. So good. Sorry Leo, not sure this is the year...
