Best Films of 2009
Here are my favorite films of the last year. Those with links will direct you to my review of the film.
Inglourious Basterds- This is Tarantino at his absolute best.
The Hangover- The most successful comedy ever for more reasons that I can type.
District 9- For a genre that is dead to me, this sci-fi drama hit a home run!
Taken- A vigilante without a bleeding heart for his enemies, what’s not to love?
The Stoning of Soraya M.- An extremely important film about the realities and inequalities in Iran.
Watchmen- Original and interesting take on the superhero.
(500) Days of Summer- Films like this are often riddled with cliché, however, this one stands alone!
Funny People- A deeply personal film for director Judd Apatow and it resonates to the audience.
Adventureland- An excellent period piece that feels almost too authentic.
Gomorrah-A unique mob picture that bears minimal resemblance to the myriad of films that came before it.
Biggest Guilty Pleasures: Public Enemies, Sherlock Holmes
Note: Have yet to screen Up and The Hurt Locker
