Favorite Movie of Summer 2009

i think i am seeing "Inglourious Basterds" today so i am going to reserve judgment, but so far in sheer entertainment value nothing has exceeded "Star Trek". favorite of the summer and probably year thus far.

Re: Favorite Movie of Summer 2009

A month ago I would have said Star Trek, but after District 9 this is going to be a hard choice....

Re: Favorite Movie of Summer 2009

#1 would definitely be Inglourious Basterds
#2 is Funny People
These are also my two favorite films of the year so far.

Re: Favorite Movie of Summer 2009

Just for pure entertainment value and looking forward to revisiting on DVD:

Star Trek
The Hangover
The Ugly Truth----One of the very few who actually loved this movie and thought it was fricking hysterical.

The were a few that I liked, but wouldn't call them the best of Summer 2009.

Re: Favorite Movie of Summer 2009

District 9 was solid but even with the annoying talking dogs, I have to give the edge to Up.

I still haven't seen Inglorious Basterds but for me, Tarantino hasn't done anything I've enjoyed since Pulp Fiction.

Re: Favorite Movie of Summer 2009

The best of 2009 so far is clearly District 9 (the only movie this year that I can't wait to get on Blu-Ray).

Re: Favorite Movie of Summer 2009

i just saw Inglourious Basterds and that just nudges Star Trek for the top spot right now, though i do think ST has more replayability. i think i am going to see District 9 early next week so i will wait to vote then. but, wow! did i love IB!

Re: Favorite Movie of Summer 2009

All I can say is anyone voting who hasn't seen INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS needs to get their ass to a theatre this weekend... honestly. And Corvin, I took a friend who HATES Tarantino (and only moderately tolerates Pulp Fiction) and they thought it was fantastic.
