What Movies Did You See In 2009?

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.

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.

Young Barry White. The geek out of the bunch. He is also Jay-Z’s biggest fan. He looks like your cousin from the burbs. He is “Pro Black” (not anti-white, just “Pro Black”). Probably the wittiest out of the bunch. It is said that he got fired from the same job three times.

    Watchman was awesome, but the best movie of the year was Inglourious Basterds! Also, and I maybe called gay for saying this, but you shoulda seen (500) Days of Summer.

    I used to work at a movie theater and I would clean the movie theaters and watch that movie, it was so much better than I thought it would be. For real Top Ten of the Year.

    Star Trek was mad good, same with District 9…the summer was dissapointing tho…Transformers 2 is the worst movie of this decade and Wolverine wasnt as good as it coulda been.

      Yea, telling me I should see (500) Days of Summer is kinda suspect…

      Naw, I actually meant to see it but Paper Heart or Away We Go are both alternatives.

        nah, don’t play that no homo shit with movies, that a steep slope, lol

        500 Days Of Summer was amazing in the same way Eternal Sunshine was (a complex look at the breakdown of a relationship), Away We Go was also great.

        Paper Heart would’ve been better without that lil ugly asian chick.
        My boy Michael Cera deserves a better caliber of broad.
        ….like Abbey Elliot or something…

        • http://nappyafro.com B-Easy

          Okay, later on I did end up watching 500 Days Of Summer and it was kinda awesome.

          Oh, and you think Charlyne Yi is ugly? She is uh, well. Hmmm.

          • http://nappyafro.com Verbose

            yeah, Joseph Gordon-Levitt has slowly crept his way on to my shortlist of “Amazing Actors That’re About the Same Age as Me”

            as far as Charlyne Yi, I’ll just be nice and say she seems smart, funny and probably fun to hang with. and it stops there. lol, I did like PaperHeart tho, I saw it twice

    avatar and district 9 2 of the best movies i’d ever seen

  • Anonymous

    I usually don’t watch movies in theaters, but I wound up seeing Avatar, Up In The Air, Sherlock Holmes and Blind Side the last week of the year. I have to say Blind Side was the best of those 4.
