Our Favorite Movies of 2009
2009 had some great movies and of course Avatar is on our list. Here's our list that the critics may or may not agree with.
This is a great sci-fi action movie that most of the family can enjoy. I think the ad said something like "This is not your father's Star Trek", which was so true. I am not a classic Star Trek fan, but really enjoyed this one.
I'll watch most things that Johnny Depp is in. Public Enemies was a good movie but not great, I enjoyed the story but felt a little short changed when it was done. So why is it on the list? Gangster movie, Johnny Depp, John Dillinger, need I say more?
The Blind Side
Of course everyone has seen this movie, and for good reason, it is a classic and only so much better because it's based on a true story.
Our favorite of 2009, not surprisingly. Avatar set new standards in what's possible with special effects. The story is great, although not new, and has it's hooks deep in our society.
I saw this on a plane. I was with my kids 4, 6, and 8, who were excited to see it, me not so much. But, I bought the headphones anyway because I didn't have much else to do. No too far into it my kids stopped watching and I kept watching. This movie is not for young kids, way too creepy and can cause nightmares for many nights, but for older kids and adults it is very entertaining and the animation is almost mesmerizing to watch.
