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

Me too.

Also The Hangover as well.

I don't understand the hype with Avatar, I mean I'll see it, but the previews just don't grab me it looks like live action Smurfs with a little bit of action

I saw Avatar last night and it was exactly what I expected: mind blowing effects and visuals and a super weak story line. If you're the slightest bit interested go see it in the theaters because once it's out on video without all of the 3D it is going to suck.

It looks like the plot from Pocahontas as well.

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.

Up was pretty amazing. I can't honestly say my eyes didn't mist up at one or two points in the theatre. Pixar is tops.

I also really liked "Up". I got a hold of a bootleg copy of the DVD, too. cool I also liked Disney's "Princess and the Frog". I dragged my ma' to see that one.

Oh, and yeah--"Watchmen" was good.

Re: Favourite (Mainstream) Movie of 2009?

I forgot my favourite!! OMG lol

Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince!! Absolutely my fav of the year.

Re: Favourite (Mainstream) Movie of 2009?

Up was just great, touching and funny.
Is District 9 mainstream? Liked that one, too
