Topic: Favourite (Mainstream) Movie of 2009?

This doesn't definitively have to be your absolute favourite since there are still some months until 2010 is upon us.

But from what you have seen of this year is there a mainstream movie of '09 that you have liked above all the others? If so which one?

For me, the one that stands out so far is: Moon, really took me aback in a wonderful way and the performances were fantastic. Def. my favourite of '09 so far.

Now for you guys. Let us know.

BTK.

well quite surprisingly for me and it was close but i had a blast with G.I. Joe it was just harmless fun i mean there was the romance betweeen scarlett and rip and the conflict between duke, the baroness and rex and lots of explosionsfor me it was a great film. zombieland was up there as well and i hope after this wednesday that i can add ninja assassin to my list.

Heard good things about, 'Where the Wild Things Are' , really want to see it smile

I'm good thanks darlin', feeling better today. How are you Helly-some hun?

Re: Favourite (Mainstream) Movie of 2009?

Glad to hear it.
Doing good.
It was a really good movie.

Re: Favourite (Mainstream) Movie of 2009?

Of the mainstream movies I've seen this year, easily Watchmen.  Because I'm a nerd like that.

Re: Favourite (Mainstream) Movie of 2009?

i liked transformers 2 but i'm also having a brain cramp and can't think  of anything else right now.

Re: Favourite (Mainstream) Movie of 2009?

Three way tie between Transformers 2, Up and Where The Wild Things Are

Re: Favourite (Mainstream) Movie of 2009?

The only one that wasn't horror that I saw was Transformers 2, so I guess it would have to be that.

Re: Favourite (Mainstream) Movie of 2009?

I haven't seen a lot of non-horror flicks from '09, (and there's still a few that I really want to see but I haven't yet) but from the ones I have seen, I really liked Taken, I Love You Man, Adventureland and (not really mainstream but still really good) Anvil! The Story of Anvil.

Gran Torino

Re: Favourite (Mainstream) Movie of 2009?

Wolverine was really really good.

Ah, forgot about that one. Great movie.

Re: Favourite (Mainstream) Movie of 2009?

I tell ya babe, this has been a bad year for movies...i can't think of one.

Re: Favourite (Mainstream) Movie of 2009?

The Hurt Locker, one of the best films of the year.

Re: Favourite (Mainstream) Movie of 2009?

Just watched New Moon. It gets my vote.

Re: Favourite (Mainstream) Movie of 2009?

As much as I loved Gran Torino, Watchmen and Taken, I have to go with Up for my favorite this year. It was just too much fun and the "silent movie" sequence showing their life together was way more touching than I had ever expected from a movie primarily aimed at kids.

Re: Favourite (Mainstream) Movie of 2009?

Ben, I agree with that scene.  I expected some campy kids movie and I would almost put Up in the drama section.

I agree Fred, it hasn't been a good year and I struggled to find something that stood out for me. Only watching Moon reaffirmed my belief that movies still can get you by the heartstrings. Certainly worth watching in my opinion smile

Re: Favourite (Mainstream) Movie of 2009?

Disney Christmas Carol was pretty good.

Re: Favourite (Mainstream) Movie of 2009?

I still really want to see Moon and Up. Also, I need to see The Hangover.

Re: Favourite (Mainstream) Movie of 2009?

i just saw "little miss sunshine" so i'm kind of lagging behind.

Re: Favourite (Mainstream) Movie of 2009?

Star Trek, and Taken

Re: Favourite (Mainstream) Movie of 2009?

Like the new avatar bin.:P

Re: Favourite (Mainstream) Movie of 2009?

Inglorious Basterds, Gran Torino, and Watchmen. big_smile
