The 2009 Rank 'Em As You See 'Em Thread

Previous Years: 2008 | 2007 | 2006 | 2005 | 2004 | 2003 | 2002

Here you go... Rate your favorite movies from this year by whatever method or system you desire. If you keep up your rankings through the year, I'll catalog your picks and tally up the top movies January 2010.

Please don't put a "placeholder" post if you don't actually plan on keeping up your list. Your placeholder posts will disappear / be deleted. Don't believe me? Ask fellow member Joseph Molotov: "Damn you guys for deleting me off the front page last year for not updating my list enough!"

If you'd like to use the 5-star system (like DVD Talk) to rate your movies, you can use these smilies:

:0star: for
:1star: for
:2star: for
etc.

Enjoy!

2009 US Releases out of *****:

Star Trek (Abrams, 2009) - **** - Hugely entertaining movie with a few plot issues. The characters occasionally slip into caricatures of their former selves but it's purely fun from beginning to end.

Drag Me To Hell - *** 1/2 - Very entertaining.

Land of the Lost - *** - I hate to say it but I really enjoyed the flick. Not the best made movie, but worth a watch or two. Altered state recommended.

Orphan - *** - Very entertaining thriller with a horrible plot twist on paper that somehow works in the movie.

Up (Pixar, 2009) - *** - One of Pixar's more entertaining movies, it was hurt a bit of the restraints of expectations. The movie was basically two films in one, an emotional "life left unfulfilled" flick and a Saturday morning cartoon. The emotional stuff is well handled if a little top heavy, and the Saturday Morning Cartoon stuff was a touch mediocre (the overuse of dogs and a weak bad guy don't help.) Simply put, I would have preferred more of the "adult" stuff.

Taken (Pierre Morel, 2008) - *** - An exciting if ultra generic action/thriller with Liam Neeson flatout owning the picture. Very glad this is one of the top grossers of 2009 thus far.

I Love You, Man (John Hamburg, 2009) - *** - Bromantic comedy, some very funny bits but it plays it a little too safe

Watchmen (Zack Snyder, 2009) - *** - A solid, ocassionally entertaining recreation of the graphic novel in movie form. That said, it was more a recreation of panels than an actual movie, and while it worked brilliantly in places, it was overall lacking.

GI Joe - ** 1/2 - Silly fun.
Knowing (Alex Proyas, 2009) - ** 1/2 - Excellent ideas, solid visuals, and occasionally deft direction couldn't save this movie from itself. For every amazingly directed sequence, there was a forehead slapper to go with it. A disappointment based on how excellent it could have been.

My Bloody Valentine 3D (Patrick Lussier, 2009) - ** 1/2 - The movie itself was nothing special, but the application of 3D made it a howler in the theaters. Nice to have a movie every once in a while where everything unravels the way you would initially think, but then doubt since nothing could be that obvious. As a movie itself, 2, with 3D, a 3.

Angels & Demonds (Howard, 2009) - ** - Dull plot with a great potential story. The movie is more a Humanities lecture than a piece of cinema. Great acting by McGregor, nicely shot and directed. Now, if only they could do something interesting with the story. Idiotic ending, too.

Carry overs:
Slumdog Millionaire (Danny Boyle, 2008) - **** - Well paced, highly entertaining fairy tale about two kids growing up in the slums of Mumbai and pursuing their ideas of destiny. A little contrived but ultimately uplifting.

Vicky Cristina Barcelona (Woody Allen, 2008) - *** - An interesting look at living the life you're supposed to live, equal parts Woody Allen classic and standard issue romantic dramedy.

Bolt (Byron Howard, Chris Williams, 2008) - ** - Very well animated movie with a novel idea (Sunset Blvd, Doggie-style) it just couldn't hold my interest.
