I love making lists & I love movies haha, so here's my top 10 of last year. I'm a little late making this but I like to try and see as many as I can before I make it.
1. The Lovely Bones
I really loved this movie! One of the most emotional ones I've seen. I was still thinking about it days after watching. Saoirse Ronan absolutely blew me away in this! You really can't take your eyes off of her. With this, Atonement, City of Ember & Death Defying Acts she's easily become one of my favorite actresses. Though there are some story issues, the amazing acting & beautiful visuals made this my favorite movie.
2. The Road
Gorgeous & powerful movie. Cinematography was amazing, really feels like this is what a post apocalyptic future would be like. Plus I love Viggo Mortensen in pretty much anything he's in.
3. Star Trek
Really everything a good blockbuster movie should be. Great characters, awesome action, intriguing story. Really awesome how well the whole cast did playing such well known characters. I'm so glad Star Trek is back.
4. District 9
I remember seeing the trailer for this and wasn't all that excited about it. But after seeing it I was really blown away. Nice to see people trying new things & not sticking to the typical "Hollywood" movie.
5. Inglorious Basterds
I'm a sucker for Quentin Tarantino and this is one of his best. Really different than what they were marketing, much more of a character drama, which I liked. Excellent supporting role from Christoph Waltz
The story could have had a little more, but the visuals were amazing. Please don't wait 10 years for your next movie James Cameron
Was a really great year for Sci Fi and Moon sorta flew under the radar, wonderful movie though. I was sad Sam Rockwell didn't get more recognition for his performance(s).
8. Julia & Julia
This was just a really fun movie. Had me smiling all the way through & after. Great performances by all & will definitely make you hungry while watching.
Another great from Pixar. I love how they continue to try new things & don't get stuck in making the same things.
10. Where The Wild Things Are
I love Spike Jonze and he did a great job with this movie. Surprisingly emotional.
