Showing 1 - 1 of 1 Movie Lists
the ten films i loved in 2009. some very important films didn't appear there because some were not shown here. now, i'll explain this list... Hmm... THE GIRLFRIEND EXPERIENCE is really a film I liked. Sasha Grey was good and the message of the movie was sorta relevant. MOON is a deep and totally ignored film of the year. It boasted a fine story and a superb, concentrated performance by Sam Rockwell. It reminded me of one of my favorite films ever: 2001: A Space Odyssey FANTASTIC MR. FOX is just one of the best Roald Dahl adaptations ever. With Wes Anderson as director, this wasn't only an animated film. It opened a new door for the auteur. DISTRICT 9 was sci-fi magic that's as scary as it is stunning. MARY AND MAX is one of the best animated features in the best year for animated features. It's dark style and beautiful story can really capture you. PARANORMAL ACTIVITY is the new Blair Witch and a film that features realistic acting and surprisingly frank lines. It's chilling and even though it's not so scary as a whole, some bits are indeed hair-raising. a darker entry into the franchise, HP AND THE HALF BLOOD PRINCE is an Oscar contender, complete with fantastic turns from the three leads, a talkie premise and dark visuals. James Cameron's latest film AVATAR is the sweetest eye candy of the year, a box office juggernaut (surpassing his own champ Titanic) and it's drawing closer and closer to another Best Picture win. Too much? Well, that's the magic of Cameron. STAR TREK was endlessly entertaining with its art direction, performances and of course special effects. I did not see anything bad about it and with the film, I became satisfied with the whole nerd show. George Clooney, Anna Kendrick and Vera Farmiga all superb (even Melanie Lynskey and JK Simmons), UP IN THE AIR is the best dramedy of the year. And it's another successful turn from a humane director in Jason Reitman. THE HURT LOCKER is Kathryn BIgelow's latest and it's the most intriguing of last year. Jeremy Renner is superb here and his performance was perfectly captured by a skillful cinematographer. The funny and bloody INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS shows off another great idea from Quentin Tarantino and he deserves all the accolades along with Christoph Waltz and Melanie Laurent, whose performances kept the film rolling in excitement. DRAG ME TO HELL is Sam Raimi's triumphant comeback to horror. The craziest film of the year, Drag Me to Hell succeeds in its multitasking of scaring and making fun of horror. An Evil Dead in the City. UP is from Pixar... and Pixar is getting better and better - no, it's THE BEST - each year and this one's its deepest, most exciting effort. I love that score! and for number one... (500) DAYS OF SUMMER! A film about love but does not tell a love story, here is Annie Hall of the Facebook generation. Quirky, painful and somehow funny, the film succeeds because of its leads... if you hate 'em, you're gonna love them after this and if you already love them, you're gonna love them more. The script and the music were splendid! A film I will never forget!
