All those other top ten movies of 2009 lists, namely the Golden Globes and Oscars are knockoffs. This list is correct and irrefutable, unless you like overrated movies, like District 9 and Paranormal Activity, in which case you’d like to be popular, which probably wouldn’t land you here. Here we go…
Just missed the cut: The Hangover, An Education, Anvil, Adventureland and A Serious Man
Despite approaching the time line aspect in such a confusing way that you have no choice but to go along with it, solid action movie and Simon Pegg is funny.
This is partly on the list because it was good and partly on the list so that I seem like a more important person than you.
Super-convoluted theory that the guy died, or was dying (i.e., the Cancer/Can, Sir scene, meeting the God-like captain and flying over the clouds with V.O.). Mid-life crisis people loved it too much, but it wasn’t bad.
Best pure comedy of the year. People swearing and insulting each other for an hour and a half is always awesome. This year’s In Bruges.
I’m tired of mopey male romantic comedy leads who aren’t confident, but the storyline thing was original.
Old people rule. More movies with old people. And by that I mean will anyone read my script about old people?
And it just puts you in a great mood because you know that no matter how bad of a day you’re having, it won’t come close to this girl’s best day.
The safest choice for people to say it was a great movie. Almost on par with the portrayal of terrorism in the opening scene of The Naked Gun.
The biggest-budget threat to homeless people to stop living in trees of all time.
Pretentious Wes Anderson at his most pretentious-y. In a good way.
