My favourite films of 2009

Christmas has all but come and gone.  I have been feeling under the weather for the most part but have had chance to kick back, relax and catch up on some films and television shows that were put aside over the past few months.  I have been watching episodes of Thriller, an acclaimed 1970s British anthology television series; the Blu-Ray release of the cult British series The Prisoner which is becoming very addictive; the Blu-Ray releases of Watchmen (Zack Snyder, 2009), Groundhog Day (Harold Ramis, 1993) amongst many others.  I am currently watching the Blu-Ray disc of Crank 2 (Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor, 2009), a definite guilty pleasure from this year.

At this time of year it is customary for bloggers to produce lists of their favourite films, albums, books etc and I am afraid that I will be no exception.  Over the next few days I will be listing my ten favourite films of the year and also my favourite films, albums and television shows of the past decade.  Let’s start with my favourite films of the year, in no particular order of course:

Gran Torino (Clint Eastwood, 2008)
The Wrestler (Darren Aronofsky, 2008)
Moon (Duncan Jones, 2009)
Watchmen (Zack Snyder, 2009)
Paranormal Activity (Oren Peli, 2007)
500 Days of Summer (Marc Webb, 2009)
Let the Right One In (
Tomas Alfredson, 2008)
The Hurt Locker (Kathryn Bigelow, 2009)
The Hangover (Todd Phillips, 2009)
Harry Brown (Daniel Barber, 2009)

As I mentioned above, Crank 2 was without doubt my favorite guilty pleasure of the year; it is absolutely insane and a must-see for lovers of action films. Still on my to watch list are Inglourious Basterds (Quentin Tarantino, 2009), Star Trek (J.J. Abrams, 2009), The Fantastic Mr. Fox (Wes Anderson, 2009) and Drag Me To Hell (Sam Raimi, 2009). 

I’ll be continuing the listing fun later today.  Now back to Crank 2.
