My Favorite Movies of 2009

My Top 10 Movies of 2009 (in no particular order, because I could take days trying to rank them):

  • Precious: Great movie. Terribly sad, but oddly hopeful. Acting by the two main roles is outstanding.
  • District 9: Perhaps, my favorite of the bunch. After the first few minutes of heavy-handedness to get the racism, refugee message across it was a great film to watch. I think Sharlto Copley should have been nominated for Best Actor, I can’t believe it was his first feature film.
  • Inglorious Basterds: Quentin Tarantino is simply a master of dialogue. The ensemble cast was great.
  • The Hangover: Best comedy in years!
  • Moon: most underrated movie of the year. This film sticks with you and makes you think.
  • Star Trek: Best reboot effort of all time! Can;t wait for the next installment.
  • Hurt Locker: Edgy and timely. Best Director is a possibility.
  • Avatar: Way better then I expected. See review here.
  • A Serious Man: Two words – Coen Brothers.
  • Watchmen: Far more then a comic book flic. A lot of depth and visual artistry here.
