If not for this thread, I wouldn't remember half the films I see in a year (and I don't see nearly as many as some people), so thanks.

+ in theater

* repeat viewing

December

+ Up in the Air (liked very much)

+ Sherlock Holmes (2009 dir. Guy Ritchie w/ brilliant Robert Downey, Jr. and Jude Law)

* Inkheart (pleasant diversion)

+ Nine (Guido treats women like dirt, finally realizes that he's a self-centered jackass, and at last is able to make a movie about--himself)

+ Invictus (wanted to like this better than I did; it's very worthy)

Confessions of a Shopaholic (might have been better if DVD hadn't been damaged...what I saw was just OK)

+ An Education (top 10 of the year)

Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium (unfortunately boring)

November

Answer Man (tried too hard to do more or less what About a Boy does effortlessly)

Evan Almighty

+ Men Who Stare at Goats (meh)

+ Coco Before Chanel (too much soap, not enough fashion)

As We Forgive (documentary)

October

The Darjeeling Limited (very limited enjoyment)

+ Bright Star (definitely a favorite of the year)

September

Silent Light (brilliant--wish I could have seen it in theater)

Rocket Science (slight, but pleasant enough)

+ Public Enemies (in theater, but $1.50 theater, so only the popcorn was expensive. Really mostly worthwhile for the company. And another performance by Marian Cotillard.)

August

My Kid Could Paint That

The Kite Runner

Longford

Once (nice, but once was enough)

+ Julie & Julia

July

Coraline (I find I've sort of gone off Neil Gaiman...)

+ Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

Flash of Genius

+ Cheri (should win "Best Costumes" Oscar)

Into Great Silence/Die Grosse Stille (condensed version, sorry; think I got a pretty good feel for it though)

The Cooler

* Lars and the Real Girl (excellent 4th of July movie)

June

The Movie Hero (more metafictional narrative, but some thought-provoking moments)

Phoebe in Wonderland (liked this even better than I thought I would)

The Blue Butterfly (enjoyed revisiting Costa Rica & its wildlife; "based on a true story" kinda generic otherwise)

+* The Brothers Bloom (rewarded 2nd viewing)

* Serenity

+ The Brothers Bloom (unusually good!)

+ The Taking of Pelham 123 (2009; wins the year's "incoherent text" prize)

Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter...and Spring (beautifully filmed Buddhism)

Nancy Drew short features from 1938-39 w/ Bonita Granville: Nancy Drew--Detective/Reporter/Trouble Shooter/and the Hidden Staircase (#1 had potential, then deteriorates into silliness)

+ My Life in Ruins (amusing enough, esp. for free [theater-card credits])

As You Like It (dir. K. Branagh--I didn't like it)

+ UP (delightful in many ways--I laughed, I cried, I gasped, even the credits made me smile)

May

+ Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian (bloated, but worth waiting for Amy Adams & Lincoln Memorial)

+* Jodhaa Akbar (even better on big screen with theater sound-system)

Nobody Knows (on IFC--couldn't stop watching this sad, sad film)

* Marnie (TCM)

The Queen

+ Star Trek (JJ Abrams has no narrative sense)

* Music and Lyrics

Jodhaa Akbar (spectacular visuals, unusually good acting)

The History Boys (as "inspiring teacher" films go, this one ends up more--whatever)

April

Lost in Austen (orig. a TV mini-series, but on DVD as 2.5 hr. movie, and works well)

*Shadowlands (BBC/Joss Ackland, Claire Bloom)

Sansho the Bailiff (on the A&F 100)

Ball of Fire (Gary Cooper & Barbara Stanwyck. Why don't I believe Cooper is an English professor?)

* Stranger than Fiction (still good, but disappointingly boring commentaries/special features)

The Last Sin Eater (pretty good cast, not half as bad as the uproar in A&F thread would suggest, but kind of preachy and over-plotted)

Kandukondain Kandukondain ("I Have Seen It" or "I Have Found It," Tamil, 2000--Bollywood revision of Sense and Sensibility)

+ Duplicity (should have waited to rent it)

March

In the Electric Mist (fab cast, some good Louisiana locations...not quite up to its source material)

Eragon (sadly dull, but I might have liked it if I were 8)

Ben X (wow--it is good; really hope stupid American remake won't screw it up)

The Seeker: The Dark Is Rising (wish I'd seen this before Christopher Eccleston became totally identified with 9th "Dr. Who" in my mind)

Marie Antoinette

In Bruges (locations the best reason to see this; even criminals are human--yeah, yeah)

+ The Tale of Despereaux (I hear the book is better; sure hope so)

Train-Man (Densha-Otoko)

In July (Im Juli)

February

Changeling (too long, but otherwise better than expected)

* Holiday (early Cary Grant & Katharine Hepburn, but not their best)

Ghost Town

Sita Sings the Blues (online)

Dead Like Me: Life after Death

On Guard (Le Bossu) (Daniel Auteuil gets to have some fun for a change, with fencing & commedia del arte)

The Gay Divorcee (Fred Astaire--no more need be said)

City of Ember (probably better on big screen, but not bad for allephory)

January

+ Last Chance Harvey (not life-changing, but nice work all around)

Henry Poole Is Here (mostly meh, but hey--filmed on location in my old neighborhood, La Mirada, CA, and looked it)

Swing Vote (maybe a little long, but timely parable & everyone seems to be enjoying themselves, especially Kevin Costner)

+ Inkheart (what's everyone complaining about?)

+ Quantum of Solace

* Waitress

Very Annie Mary

The Last Legion (great cast--Colin Firth, Aishwarya Rai, Ben Kingsley--uneven story--should have been better)

Cape of Good Hope (Grand Canyon in South Africa, but that's OK--I like Grand Canyon)

* Prince Caspian (on DVD...still kind of a travesty, but I still crazily hope someone will do Dawn Treader right)

MARCH

New Releases

[*]Watchmen - C- (About as hypocritical and disingenuous as superhero movies get. While its characters lament the corruption and excesses of a lust-driven culture, the film serves up extra helpings of gratuitous gore and soft-porn sex to dazzle the fanboys. Philosophically, the film does strike some resonant chords about the meaningless of life if there is no God (or at least no loving God), but the film is so "steroidal" in its sensual overload that it subverts what discussion-worthy material can be found there.)

Discoveries

  • Happy-Go-Lucky* - B+ (Not one of Leigh's best films, but there are a few scenes here that make this well worth the effort. Eddie Marsan is so good as introverts with anger issues.)
  • Tropic Thunder* (DVD) - B (Stiller caught lightning in a bottle with Robert Downey Jr's extraordinary performance. I mean, way to go Heath Ledger, but Downey Jr. was robbed at the Oscars. As in Zoolander, Stiller's ambitions sometimes achieve greatness. There is some remarkably intelligent comedy and commentary in this film. But there's just so much crassness that interrupts and spoils the film's greater ambitions. It really could have been Tropic Thunderstorm. Feels more like Tropic Drizzle with Thunderclaps.)
  • The Long Day Closes (DVD) - A+ (A film that reminded me of Tarkovsky's Mirror. Its powerful reverence for, and lament for, a lost childhood... as well as its brutal meditations on the hardships of childhood, felt to me like the most poetic distillation of what Spielberg is always trying to grasp (and came closest, I think, in Empire of the Sun. The stage-play feel of each chapter, and the interweaving threads of songs remembered, vivid moments, nightmares, and sensual experiences around the women of his childhood world, give the film a great deal of artifice, but it's pulled off so gracefully, each piece a miraculously balanced element of poetry, that this film must make Terrence Malick's head spin. Beautiful, joyous, and aching with a deep and indescribable sadness. This is one I hope to revisit many times.)

FEBRUARY

New Releases

  • Let The Right One In (DVD) - B+ - Effectively creepy. A great first hour: unpredictable and strange. The second hour devolves into a predictable, crowdpleasing story about a vulnerable boy and the bullies who torment him.

Discoveries

  • Eldorado* (DVD).....B+
  • Paranoid Park* (DVD).....B+
  • Still Life* (DVD).....A

Revisited

  • Paris, Je T'aime (second viewing, DVD).....A- (Enjoyed it much, much more the second time.)
  • WALL-E (fourth viewing, DVD).....A
  • Shotgun Stories (fourth viewing, DVD).....A

JANUARY

New Releases

  • My Neighbor Totoro (DVD) - A+ - Old favorite, renewed appreciation thanks to my Christmas present widescreen DVD
  • Horton Hears a Who (DVD) - C+ - Seemed desperate to entertain its ADD audience. But there were a few moments of inspired absurdity, especially the REO Speedwagon finale.
  • Rachel Getting Married - A-
