New Movies I Saw in 2009

Post date: Jan 22, 2010 6:49:21 AM

January 30, 2010 edit: I have a few films to add to this now. Of course, they're not movies I saw in 2009, but they are 2009 movies I watched in 2010. In addition to what you can see below, I've watched Goodbye Solo, Moon, Funny People, and The Hurt Locker. All of them receive a mention on my new Top Films of 2009 list. I hear a lot of podcasters figuring out the number of movies they watched in 2009, so I thought I'd try out the same using the Wikipedia list. There are so many movies I wanted to see that I didn't, and there some truly awful ones that I did see (HINT: three of them have colons in their titles, and one is represented by a bizarre fangirl picture screen right). But 28 new movies in a year isn't too shabby, right? That's 2 1/3 per month. I probably saw more in 2008, but I was writing weekly reviews for Buzz back then.Anyhow, here's my list. I think this is everything. All links are to my reviews. 1. Notorious2. The Class (French)3. Coraline (saw it on DVD a few nights ago)4. Gomorra (Italian)5. Street Fighter: Legend of Chun-Li6. Monsters vs. Aliens7. Hannah Montana: The Movie (I promise, not by choice, but as a favor to Ms. Dani-Lyn Loucks)8. X-Men Origins: Wolverine9. Drag Me to Hell (on DVD)10. Up11. The Hangover12. The Proposal13. My Sister's Keeper14. Bruno15. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (I remember almost nothing about the plot of this movie)16. District 9

17. Inglorious Basterds

18. Paranormal Activity

19. A Serious Man

20. An Education

21. Where the Wild Things Are

22. The Men Who Stare at Goats

23. Precious

24. The Twilight Saga: New Moon

25. Up in the Air

26. Avatar

27. Nine

28. Sherlock Holmes

I'd be interested to compare with others. Post your count in the comments, if you wish, and your thoughts on what I totally should have seen.

Next few posts will include my annual top 5, bottom 5, and top 5 movies I wanted to see but didn't. For the moment, I need to stare at this list and think about it for awhile. Stay tuned!
