so this began as a summer movie roundup, but then i forgot to do that, so here is a yearly roundup for 2009.
You know my thoughts on this one.
19. Final destination 3
Stupid. Just stupid.
18. The InternationalNot thrilling, and not entertaining.
Childish but still kind of fun.
15. X-Men Origins: Wolverine
A story that might have been told before, but still beautiful in its execution.
13. Inglorious Bastards
I do appreciate Quintin Tarentino for his creative style and was glad to see it in this movie, but this didn’t live to the hype.
12. Harry Potter 6
11. Couples Retreat
10. the Hangover
Taking stupidity to greater heights, the Hangover finds what makes the worst-best night ever
9. I Love You, Man
8. Funny People
While it was billed as much funnier, the result was subtlety more fun than a stupid comedy could ever achieve.
7. District 9
Pixar’s contribution to this year in animation, the highest ranking comedy on the list.
A smart movie, the likes of which aren’t seen that often, it slides in at number.
Three hours, but definitely worth it in the end. An emotional ride as we watch Benjamin button grow young.
While I do like Rugby, it had nothing to do with the liking of this movie. Morgan Freemans portrayal of Nelson Mandela just after he took office in South Africa is brilliant. The story is tight and compelling.
The movie form of the famous graphic novel by Alan Moore. I read the graphic novel before and was truly impressed by the comparison. Though some things were changed the characters remained mostly true to the book and were wonderfully brought to life in this Zach Snyder epic.
