The lights are on
Have you ever seen that one movie with that dude in it? Chances are someone here has, and they want to talk to you about it. Grab some popcorn and discuss all things relating to the silver screen.
Whats been your favorite movie or the one you think seems the best so far in 09
I would have to say the new Star Trek was one of the best movies of this year. Biggest let down ... Wolverine
I cant really decide, so heres a list!
Inglorious Basterds was my favorite movie of 09. The biggest let down was Push. That movie sucked.
I agree with T-Dubbs Transformers 2 let me down alot. There were somethings I liked about it better then the 1st , but not enough stuff
Hmm my big three on favorite of 2009 are probably Star Trek, Watchmen, and The Hangover. The movies that let me down the most were Transformers 2 and Halloween II (I really liked all of Rob Zombie's other films).
@Nightwing: I know what you mean. Halloween let me down alot. I also think that the Terminator Salvation...was good but could have been better.
Worst: Transformers 2. In fact, it might be the worst movie I've ever seen. it is definitely in the top five. I've seen something like 800 movies or so, so that's saying somehting.
definitly Transformers 2.
GI Joe could've been better
ya those actions movies like Wolverine, GI Joe, and Terminator Salvation couldve been better if they were rated R
I agree with Kensei, it seems like movie makers are dancing around ratings so that they can reach a greater audience. Transformers 2 should have been rated R as it is, and it would have been exponentially better if it were. I actually really liked GI Joe, that may be my inner child speaking, or the fact that Sienna Miller is a friggin' hot Baroness, but it had obvious budget limitations.
Here's my opinions on 2009 movies.
Best Movie of 2009: Taken
All around worst of 2009: Crank 2
Biggest let-down of 2009: Dragonball
Most predictably bad: Twilight: The New Moon
Most over-hyped: Avatar
Best Sci-Fi Movie: Star Trek
Best Action Movie: Taken
Best Fantasy Movie: Inkheart (Watch this, it's actually pretty good)
Best Thriller: Law Abiding Citizen
Best War movie: Inglorious Basterds
Best Comedy: Zombieland
Best Post-Apocalyptic movie: The Road
Other Strongly Recommended (In no particular order): Terra, Race to Witch Mountain, Know1ng, State of Play, Angels and Demons, Up, The Hurt Locker, Pandorum, The Ugly Truth, GI Joe, District 9, Gamer, Surrogates, The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day, The Fourth Kind, 2012
Most anticipated in 2010: The Book of Eli and Kick-Ass
When I die, I want to go peacefully like my Grandfather did, in his sleep -- not screaming, like the passengers in his car.
The biggest let-down of 2009 is definitely Transformers 2. For movie goers like me it was a total disaster, but for the action junkies it was most likely a very good move.
My favorite movie of 2009 is District 9, it was very close to Star Trek, but D9 came out on top for me.
I'm keeping my fingers crossed for Sherlock Holmes.
ya sherlock holmes looks pretty good
transformers 2 and x-men origins: wolverine. should have expected it.
