Re: Movies Seen in 2009

Five more:

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (2008) - good, but not great. It rang a bit hollow for me, and I found Cate Blanchett's performance generally annoying and overly mannered.

Slumdog Millionaire (2008) - great film.

American Splendor (2003) - one of the few comic book adaptations I hadn't seen (in terms of American films anyway - there are a lot of Japanese films adapted from manga I haven't seen yet). It's a great film, very inventive in its structure and often very funny.

I Wanna Hold Your Hand (1978) - the directorial debut of Robert Zemeckis; it's an enjoyable, amiable comedy about the Beatlemania that raged in 1964 when the Beatles appeared on The Ed Sullivan Show. Nancy Allen sure was gorgeous in her prime.

Norbit (2007) - awful, a laugh-free "comedy". It's thought that this being in release while Oscar voting was underway may have cost Eddie Murphy the award for Best Supporting Actor in Dreamgirls. It's astonishing that it made $95 million domestic.
