Blew me away. Great story, lovely animation, crazy dogs!
Far better than the critics reckoned; a simple tale beautifully rendered.
3. District 9
Much maligned - everyone missed the point.
4. Monsters Versus Aliens
A film that made it clear it didn't like Americans.
Caught me by surprise.
6. Star Trek
Wasn't brilliant, had moments I hated, 'Bones' was brilliant!
The Bad and the Ugly
Utter bollocks, predictable and quite stupid.
Everything was perfect until they changed the story.
3. Drag me to Hell
About as scary as a Yorkshire terrier.
5. The Spirit
Lasted 5 minutes. The reason why superhero films can be a really bad idea.
There were other films I saw in 2009, many of which never lasted on my radar for more than seconds. I can't actually remember anything about Wolverine, probably because it was poo, There were also a number of films from 2008 I caught on DVD, but nothing sticks in my mind.
