Monsters Vs. Aliens wasn't that bad. I haven't heard good things about G-force so far though.

How is Adventureland, which is from one of the largest studios in existence an independent movie?

Re: Best & worst of 2009 Movies!

Why are you people insisting Inglorious Basterds as being an action movie? It is not. Most of the film is suspense/thriller/drama with very little action.

Please stop insisting Basterds as being an action movie

It's the best action movie since Schindler's List.

Most independent films are distributed by a large studio.

Re: Best & worst of 2009 Movies!

Worst, for me, was definitely Bride Wars (yes... I actually watched it... all the way through.)

Best is something I'm going to have to think long and hard about. There were too many good films that I saw (Brothers being the most recent... but definitely not the best of the best...)

I care! Continue when you can. I will say this much for the comedy category, I was the most disappointed with "The Hangover". While pleasant enough, not the laugh riot/funniest film in years IMO. And a comedy I was dreading to ever see, turned out to be the most pleasant....."Julie & Julia".
