Showing 1 - 1 of 1 Movie Lists
These are my favorite films of 2009, this is not final yet as I have at least a good ten films that I need to see that I think have the possibility to break into this list. A Single Man is a beautifully put together movie that regretfully switchted from artful and thoughtfully suicidal after the first half that cost it from being great, still a well done movie. Up is Pixar yet again doing their magic, while not even close to their best it is still a joy, a true testiment to the studio that one of my least favorites of theirs is still one of the best films of the year. Moon is my pick for the Scifi film of the year, better than District 9 and Star Trek it is beautiful with breathtaking cinematography and held together by a great performance by Sam Rockwell. Pelham, Wolverine, and Furious all are flawed movies that I sat back and just enjoyed as pure entertainment, which sometimes is all that is needed in this world. Potter while the setup to the final chapter was a beautifully well crafted chapter in the series. Hangover is hands down the funniest film of the year, I'm sure I will be still checking this out 25 years from now when I'm in need of a laugh. Sunshine Cleaning did a nice job at looking at life in happy and sad times and trying to work through it. 500 Days of Summer is my film of the year, a wonderful look back at a relationship that is actually an original romance/anti-romance to some, just a film that was a joy for me to behold.
