Ten Favorites From 2009

I'm way too behind on the movies of this year to deliver a legitimate 'Best Of' list so I went with a 'Favorites' list instead. Maybe I'm just getting soft but there was a whole lot of films I liked this past year and very little that I didn't. Sure, there were some I wanted to burn off the face of the planet, like Rob Zombie's Halloween II but for the most part the horror offerings of '09 kept me in a good mood. I don't how many true classics, if any, this past year produced - time will have to tell on that. But whether they go on to have a healthy shelf life or not, my favorites of '09 still made this a good year for me.

Well now I really need to check out THE BURROWERS, I was worried about some of the less than stellar reviews.. Cant stand DRAG ME TO HELL, though, thats all you man

Yeah, I love Drag but I know it rubbed some people the wrong way. As for The Burrowers, it's slow-paced, which was a turn-off to some, but I thought it was a cool movie.

That's a good list.
Nothing on there I'd quibble with... though it reminds me that there wasn't anything this year I was really ecstatic about. 2008 had more standouts for me.
My favorite of these is probably Paranormal Activity.

I'm still pretty pissed that I missed The Box and Pandorum in the theaters but I guess it gives me something to look forward to on DVD. Good overall lost but not a fan of My Bloody Valentine 3D.

Knob, I remember being more excited about last year's films too.

And Geof, The Box and Pandorum aren't everyone's cup of tea but I think they both deserve a look.
