Movies Of 2008/2009

Friday, February 27, 2009

Dear Constant Reader,

My neighbor, and I have seen a whole of movies over the 2008/2009 season. So many that I can't really believe it.

Here's what we've been watching, and my thoughts on each:

"Bolt": 9/10

A totally fun animated feature from the folks at Disney. Not everything they do is evil, right?

"Burn After Reading": 1/10

A total turd bath from the Cohen's. How far they've fallen since "Fargo". Avoid this giant shit sandwich at all costs.

"The Curious Case of Benjamin Button": 10/10

A new cinematic classic that probably should've won far more awards than it did. David Fincher (director) brings a magical story to life on the big screen.

"The Dark Knight": 10/10

This is totally Heath Ledger's show, and the best of all the Batman films. Ledger's "Joker" will stun you. Brilliant work by all.

"The Day the Earth Stood Still": 1/10

The people responsible for this cinematic abortion should be entirely ashamed of themselves. What happened, Kathy?

"Eagle Eye": 7/10

A rollicking good time, but some of the performances are a little uninspired.

"Gran Torino": 8/10

Clint Eastwood's best directorial, and acting effort ... ever. Even the title song is a delight. Here's the video of the tune by Jamie Cullum:

"Lakeview Terrace": 2/10

Sam Jackson has a few great moments, but this film is a thunderous bore.

"Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa": 10/10

Another animated treat that's not just for kids! God, I'm becoming fucking sentimental.

"Mamma Mia!": 1/10

Hear that? It's the sound of the members of ABBA blowing their brains out. They'd be the lucky ones.

"Marley & Me": 10/10

Not just a movie about a naughty dog. Wondrous all around.

"Max Payne": 1/10

Not only the name of the movie, but also what the audience had to endure with this piece of bullshit.

"Quantum of Solace": 7/10

Not the best Bond film, but pretty darn good. Great stunt work.

"Religulous": 10/10

Fuck God. That is all. Oh, and see this Bill Maher/Larry Charles documentary.

"Righteous Kill": 6/10

Not as bad as some critics have said.

"Twilight": 2/10

A great film if you're mentally challenged!

"Untraceable": 6/10

Standard thriller, but pretty good stuff.

"What Just Happened?" 1/10

I saw a piece of shit. THAT'S what happened.

"Zack and Miri Make a Porno": 1/10

Remember when Kevin Smith made good films? That's over.
