we've got a games thread so why not a film one includes downloaded (legal or illegal, not that anyone would do that :p) cinema, DVD (or VHS if you're feeling retro, or any TV series you are addicted to. I'll start it - Taken **best film EVER**, Madagascar 2, Ice Age 2 (finally), Wanted, Flushed Away, The Love Guru, 50 First Dates, Lord of War **second best film ever**, Four Christmas', The Island & not forgeting 24 and CSI seasons 1 through 4 and 9.

Paul Blart: Mall Cop Classic case of genre gone wrong. The movie was good, but would have been twice as epic as a straight up action movie.

Is it films we've seen for the first time in 2009? That's what I'm going by anyway.

Changeling.
Madagascar 2 - I laughed uncontrollably for the first 20 minutes (I don't know why!)
Bolt 3D (twice) - new all-time favourite movie.
Twilight.
The Business.
One Missed Call.

And I was made to watch Knocked Up to the very end the other day, so that's a half count.

That's the only ones I think I've seen this year so far.

It is a brilliant film especially the plane part and when the penguins rob the tourists :laugh:

Are we talking just about movies we've watched this year, of movies we've seen for the first time this year?

My list is surprisingly short anyways, considering what a movie buff I usually am.

First time:
Coraline- Fantastic movie, it's just awesome how they mix the sweet and creepy.
Friday the 13th- It's not the worst in the franchise, X, Manhattan, and Freddy vs. Jason, all suck more. But it certainly wasn't that great. The WHOLE film was essentially prologue killings with characters you had little attachment to.


Movies I've simply watched again this year:
Robin Hood
Oliver & Company
Zak & Miri Make a Porno
Johnny Mnemonic
Tank Girl

I think you and I could have a lengthy discussion about horror movie ethics, Mako, but needless to say, I don't think it's too distant an idea to see Jason with a bow and arrow -- after all, he was at at Camp Crystal Lake, and we've seen Jason use a harpoon with deadly efficiency in Part III. Actually, I rather enjoyed the recreation. The Friday the 13th series is probably one of my favorite film sagas of all time, and I think they did it great honor with the new retelling. Would I choose it over the first three? Of course not, but as a horror movie that doesn't try to do anything new (because I don't want these things to try anything new, because when they try something new, they fail), and that tries to please old slasher fans, it was right on.

As for other movies that I've seen this year, Taken was pretty good. While its plot was considerably fluffy, there was plenty of Liam Neeson ass-kicking going on, and that was good enough for me. I don't necessarily see how they could stretch the film into a series, but it was great while it lasted!

My biased view:

The Uninvited was awful. A pretty butt-smelly remake of what was otherwise a good movie in its original form.

The Unborn was just laughable. I love terrible, terrible "horror" movies. This did not disappoint, but the dog in the first two minutes with the mask on had me laughing hysterically.

I finally saw American Gangster, and Denzel Washington, while he always seems to play the same character, is as solid and as charismatic as ever.

I also saw Gladiator for the first time. A good movie, but it has aged a bit. Joaquin Phoenix was as outstanding as always, and Russell Crowe was ... eh, Russell Crowe.

Pojo, how was Push?

Push was all right. The acting could have been better. I liked the special power aspect, although I think they could have done a lot better. I wouldn't pay for it (which is why I see two movies per trip to the theater)

I've been living under a cinematic rock lately.. too busy to pop in a movie, and definitely no time to go out and see one.

I usually do the same thing myself. While it's usually a good fifty buck trip, I don't mind spending the cash for an activity like that. Always have to have the popcorn! We used to go to Midnight Movies around here a lot, too, which showed a lot of cult classics -- Rocky Horror Picture Show, Akira, so on and so forth. I miss that!

I never get popcorn, or anything. The theater I go to doesn't care if you bring in outside things though (it's in a mall).

I would have only saw Push for Dakota Fanning. She is freakin amazing.

...And theatre popcorn, candy, and drinks are ridiculously priced. $4.00 for a drink. UHH HELL NO!!! I sneak in candy and stuff in my biga$$ purse.
