Best Of 2009?

Postby Finli Otego on Mon Dec 28, 2009 1:13 am

What was your favorite film of 2009?

Do you think your favorite will get recognized by the Academy?

Personally, I flip flop between "District 9" and "Inglourious Basterds". I don't think "District 9" will get nominated for anything, but do think "Basterds" will. Christoph Waltz is a shoe-in for Best Supporting Actor, in my opinion.

I dont know, I thought this year, just like the last few years, have been weak when it comes to films. I have to think about it some more, search my brain for films and check if they were released this year.

I don't go by what is critically acclaimed or what the popular thing is. I go by what entertained me the most. That's the most important thing at the end of the day ;)

The Hangover
Star Trek
Up
Harry Potter 6

Avengers, Assemble.

Hmm...I agree with everyone's picks here (except for Moon, which I haven't seen. But I want to). I would say, in that order:

Star Trek
District 9
Inglorious Basterds
The Hangover
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

With an honorable mention to Avatar. Seriously, I kept blinking to a minimum in that movie :PP

:hmm:
Zombieland was good, but not as good as the movies I mentioned above.

But I forgot one: Gran Torino

I haven't seen Invictus or Lovely Bones yet, but I don't think I'd love them that much anyway.

In order:

Avatar
Inglourious Basterds
Up in the Air
Fantastic Mr .Fox
Star Trek
Watchmen
Up
Coraline
Drag Me To Hell
The Hurt Locker

This year was easily the weakest of the decade. Good thing 2010's shaping up to be a bloody fantastic year!
