There’s a few loves in my life. One of those strong ones is Hip-Hop. But honestly, another one is watching movies. I sometimes think that if I was rich, all I would do is listen to music, travel, and watch movies (Okay, sex is in there somewhere too).
Of course with my love of films and 2009 being over, I took a look at all of the movies I saw last year that came out in ’09. At first I was gonna rank the 10 best films in 2009, but that’s been done to death at this point (And also done with more expertise than me). So why not just put up a full list of all the movies I saw from 2009? Yea that’ll work.
All About Steve
Away We Go
The Blind Side
Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs
Drag Me To Hell
Friday The 13th
Ghosts Of Girlfriends Past
The Haunting In Connecticut
He’s Just Not That Into You
The Hurt Locker
I Love You Beth Cooper
I Love You, Man
The Invention Of Lying
Land Of The Lost
Last House On The Left
Law Abiding Citizen
Monsters vs Aliens
My Bloody Valentine

A Perfect Getaway

The Ugly Truth
Up In The Air
Where The Wild Things Are
Not too bad right? I actually wish I would have seen more movies because I know some guys who put my list to shame in terms of quantity (But remember these are only the movies I watched that were RELEASED in 2009).
Compiling this list and looking over it brought a few thoughts to my head:
*Still mad I didn’t get to see Avatar?
*Why and how the hell did I let myself see Fired Up, Miss March, AND, I Love You Beth Cooper? (Hours of my life I can’t get back)
*Still mad I didn’t get to see Mystery Team.
*Big budget never means good movies (I’m looking at you 2012 & Transformers 2).
*Any movies with “land” in the title and starring Jesse Eisenberg will probably be good.
*Still mad I didn’t get to see Sherlock Holmes.
*If it’s animated, it’s a good chance I’ll watch it (9, Astro Boy, Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs, Coraline, Monsters vs Aliens, Up).
*Don’t watch Food Inc. if you eat a lotta fast food (It’s been called one of the scariest movies of 2009…because it’s real).
*I’m happy the last move I saw of 2009 was Up In The Air (George Clooney is the coolest white guy on the planet).
So. What movies did YOU see In 2009? Which was the best?
Sidenote: And sorry, this IS the first Friday Night ‘Fro with no movie. I’ll catch you next go round.
