Eyeris' 2009 Movie Lists: Pixar Soaring Up, And Joe Rising Down

TOP TEN FAVORITE MOVIES OF 2009





  1. Up (Gorgeous, sweet, funny and best opening sequence minutes ever)
  2. (500) Days of Summer (The only rom-com I've actually really LIKED)
  3. Inglourious Basterds (Tarantino. The Jew Hunter. Diane Kruger. Nuff said)
  4. Princess And The Frog (The return of Disney and classic 2D animation)
  5. Star Trek (A new Star Trek movie that puts the new Star Wars movies to shame)
  6. Sherlock Holmes (Robert Downey Jr. rocks!)
  7. Coraline (Never came here, but great watch nonetheless)
  8. Watchmen (A bit too faithful and stylo at times, but still awesome)
  9. District 9 (probably the biggest surprise of the year)
  10. Public Enemies (Depp. Bale. Mann. Tommy Guns. 'nuff said)
--------------------------------------------------------------

THE "I LIKED IT, SO THERE!" LIST


  1. Transformers: Revenge Of the Fallen (I liked it, SO THERE!)
  2. This Is It (You didn't like it? Then BEAT IT!)
  3. Harry Potter & The Half-Blood Prince (Better than the book. Which is good.)
  4. Monsters vs. Aliens (I quite liked the concept, SO THERE!)
  5. Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs (Cheesy. More of a light snack than a heavy meal)
----------------------------------------------------

THE "OK BUT COULD HAVE BEEN BETTER" LIST
  1. 9 (Nice concept and execution, but not much of a story)
  2. Avatar (Gorgeous, true, but really just Dances With Wolves with pretty colours and blue people)
  3. 2012 (Nice effects, but 40 minutes too long)
  4. Ice Age: Dawn Of The Dinosaurs (Wasn't TOO bad, but wasn't too good either)
----------------------------------------------------

OVER-HYPED DISAPPOINTMENTS
  1. X-Men Origins: Wolverine (Damn wishy-washy. A bloody waste of good characters)
  2. Terminator Salvation (terminate that salivating director!)
  3. Angels and Demons (Better hair, but nothing much else)
  4. Fast & Furious (More splutter than vroom)
  5. A Christmas Carol (Bah, HUMBUG)
----------------------------------------------------

OH GOD KILL ME NOW
  1. New Moon (Most fun I had laughing AT a movie this year)
  2. Dragonball Evolution (Go read the comic. Less aggravating)
  3. Storm Warriors (Spent more time posing than fighting. Should be called Storm Posers instead.)
  4. G.I.Joe: The Rise of Cobra (one dumb, loud actionmovie based on toys is good enough for me)
----------------------------------------------------

Wanted to Watch
  1. The Fantastic Mr. Fox
  2. The Hurt Locker
  3. Zombieland
  4. Coraline in 3D
  5. Where The Wild Things Are
