Fantastic Mr. Fox (2009)
Coffin Rock (2009)
"he quiet, understated setup of the first part of the film is an honest and thoughtful exploration of male ego and infertility. Then Glasson turns up the horror heat and his film becomes another bunny-boiler look at obsession."
Ong Bak 2 (2009)
The Vanishing of the Bees (2011)
Le Donk & Scor-zay-zee (2009)
Ip Man (2010)
Sztuczki (Tricks) (2009)

District 9 (2009)
Big River Man (2009)
500 Days of Summer (2009)
"Too timid to be truly cynical about love and too eager for box-office success to try to be a really new kind of romantic comedy, the film fails the ultimate romantic-comedy test: not only does it lack enough laughs, but you're never emotionally involved."
The Hurt Locker (2009)
Broken Embraces (2009)
"It is ironic that, of all Almodovar's films, Broken Embraces is the biggest budget and the greatest length, yet it is also the dullest. His devoted fans will be delighted, but those who enjoyed Volver will be disappointed."
Mesrine: Public Enemy #1 (2010)
The Final Destination (2009)
Inglourious Basterds (2009)
Aliens in the Attic (2009)
The Time Traveler's Wife (2009)
Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus (2009)
The Meerkats (2008)
"Like the real-life natural-world Disney features of yesteryear, there's a huge amount of entertainment to be had, especially for kids, although the imposition of a story and the attribution of various emotions to the creatures can get slightly cloying."
The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3 (2009)
Coco Before Chanel (2009)
Mad, Sad & Bad (2009)
"Like a sitcom pilot that should never have seen the light of day. The characters are cardboard cutouts and the comedy lacks bite. Imagine the same script featuring white characters and you will see just how second-rate the screenplay is."
Crossing Over (2009)
The Proposal (2009)
Charles Dickens's England (2009)
"He's a ghost of documentaries past: an actorly tour guide reciting lines not written by him, putting on glasses with a scholarly flourish, staring into space to underline poignant moments in the narrative."
Rudo y Cursi (2009)
Looking for Eric (2010)
Soi Cowboy (2008)
New Town Killers (2008)
"Levy's film is neither fun nor exciting. He's stuffed it with special effects, star names and big numbers, but it has none of the exuberance needed to lift us out of our seats and take us on a thrilling ride."
