2009: A Rundown (so far)

I've now seen ten films from 2009. I'll be updating this every end of the month from now on.

In descending order of brilliance:

Zack Snyder's "Watchmen" (****)
Alex Proyas' "Knowing" (****)
Pierre Morel's "Taken" (****)
Gavin Hood's "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" (***1/2)
Tom Tykwer's "The International" (***1/2)
Letterman/Vernon's "Monsters vs. Aliens" (***1/2)
Justin Lin's "Fast & Furious" (***)
Andy Fickman's "Race to Witch Mountain" (***)
Paul McGuigan's "Push" (**1/2)
Peter Chelsom's "Hannah Montana: The Movie" (**)

So, there you have it. Not as many by this time as last year, but that's because I'm in college now.

Should be seeing "Star Trek" very, very soon. This summer should be a lot of fun.

Happy moviegoing!

So where does Star Trek rate?

At the very top. In the process of writing a review for it, but been swamped with college stuff. It's a stunning achievement all around. Best visual effects in the medium and up there with Dark Knight and Minority Report as one of the best summer blockbusters ever. Astonishing. Expect a lengthy review.

Have you seen it yet?
