Movies Seen in 2009
What movies have you seen this year, new or old?
- The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (2008) [A] It's barely an A, mind you, I think it could have been trimmed by about 30 minutes
- Hancock [C] I really enjoyed the first half of the movie, and then the script just falls apart.
- The Ex [C] It's unbelievably corny.
- Blue Velvet [B] I couldn't take my eyes off the screen. It was very weird.
- The Visitor [A] One of last year's sleeper hits.
- My Best Friend's Girl [C] Watchable, but corny.
- Winter Passing [B-] Does Will Ferrell even try to play other characters?
- Zack and Miri Make A Porno [B] I laughed all the way through this movie.
- Crank [B] It's stupid, but It's fun stupid.
- Pulse [F] One of the worst films I've ever seen.
- Saw V [C] The last 20 minutes or so are cool. Most of it's a drag.
- Pathology [B] I highly recommend this. Despite some bad acting, it's a really cool story.
- Dazed and Confused [B-] Nothing happens, but it's pretty good.
- Fast Times at Ridgemont High [D] Overrated.
- Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist [A] I usually don't like stuff like this, but this was one of the best movies I saw from last year.
- Changeling [B+] Good movie, needed some major editing
- The Boy in the Striped Pajamas [B] Depressing, but not very effective overall
- Blindness [B-] Could have been so much better, I'm interested in seeing the book
- Elegy [B-] Too long in parts, but worth watching
- Slumdog Millionaire [A+] By far the best movie of last year. Great film.
- Mojave Phone Booth [B] An interesting little film. Highly recommended.
- X-Men Origins: Wolverine [C] Kinda boring, honestly
- Star Trek [A+]
- The Executioner's Song (TV) [C] Tommy Lee Jones won an emmy. I think it's mostly silly
- Taken [B] Solid film. I'd probably rewatch it.
- The Alphabet Killer [D] Eliza Dushku couldn't even save this crap.
- Prince of the City [B] Too similar to Serpico, another film directed by Sidney Lumet.
- Helter Skelter (TV) [B] Enjoyable
- The Last Emperor [A] One of my new favorite films
- Valkyrie [A] I had heard a lot of negative buzz, but I enjoyed it
- Twilight [B-] I was shocked I liked it. I know I know...
- Serpico [B] Pretty good film
- Appaloosa [B-] Not as good as 3:10 To Yuma, but I'm glad to see the Western genre back
- Revolutionary Road [C] Overrated
- Frost/Nixon [A] loved it
