2009 was a great year in film. There were enourmously huge blockbusters, quiet indie films, a Tarantino flick, some great comedies, and some amazing animation. Unfortunately, I’m once again catching up before the Oscars air. There were a lot of films that had limited releases that I just didn’t get to see yet, and several of those films are nominated.
This year’s Oscars are also quite interesting. There are ten best picture nominees, though it’s sort of easy to tell which five are the “gimmes” and which would’ve been the top five. That said, it’s going to be one of the most difficult set of predictions that I’ve done yet… Enough Oscar talk, though. Here are some movies I enjoyed in 2009:
My favourite films, in alphatbetical order, are:
(500) Days of Summer
Anvil! The Story of Anvil
The Hurt Locker
Up in the Air
