Because there's just too much ugliness.

Favorite Movies 2009

Well, I don't know about you, but looking over our top selling media for this year embarrassed me. What shallow, silly, and often downright bad picks! I'm rather ashamed of our country.


TOP BOX OFICE HITS


1. Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen

2. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

3. Up

4. Twillight Saga: New Moon

5. Avatar

6. The Hangover

7. Star Trek

8. Monsters Vs. Aliens

9. Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs

10. The Blind Side



Oh Well, it was a bad year for the movies. I've yet to see Blind Side, which is hopeful but otherwise, this year was sorry!
Still, this is focusing on the loveliness, so I scrounged through and found 3 movies that I could actually happily recommend.




Best Cartoon:
Up

I'm sure you've heard it a million times, but Pixar really did do it again!
It's funny, its sweet, and ever so original.


























Best Romantic: 500 Days Of Summer

This is the first romance that doesn't end the way you expect it to. And the first romance that tells you that in the very first scene. It's tells the story in such a creative, quirky way that you fall in love, anyway.
Zooey Deschanel and Joseph Gordon-Levitt both give spot-on brilliant performances.









Best Family:
17 Again

Family films have become so predictable and stupid that its hard to find a good one. And while 17 Again wouldn't win any awards for outstanding originality, it has enough funny moments and interesting curveballs to be entertaining and amusing. There's also a bit of a thoughtful moral to encourage conversation in families.
Plus, I'm sorry, but Zac Efron is just beautiful. Left those High School Musical days behind!























I tried really hard to find a top action movie, but I really struggled. Everything was just so LAME! Haven't seen Avatar yet, maybe that will fill the spot. Lets hope!

  2. What was the name of the Best Romantic?
    I never saw Avatar, but I heard from my friends that it was really good!
    LOL, I started to watch 17 again, and it seemed funny and enjoyable, but my mother made me turn it off before we got very far because of the sexual jokes. lol
