My Favorite Films In 2009

By Emily Hyatt

When it comes to movies, 2009 was a pretty solid year. There were the blockbusters (Avatar, Transformers, Twilight), the surprise hit (The Hangover) and the feel good movie (The Blind Side). There was even a great horror movie in Paranormal Activity. But which were the best?

Here is a quick breakdown of my three favorite films of 2009.

Simply put, I couldn’t breathe during the Hurt Locker. It was that suspenseful. The cinematography and directing in this Iraq War commentary piece is outstanding. Kathryn Bigelow did an unbelievable job and deserved to win the 2009 Academy award for Best Picture of the Year. I think the award for Best Director should have gone to someone else though…

If you haven’t seen Avatar, you must be living under a rock. What an experience this movie is. James Cameron continues to push the boundaries of movies and showed u something we had never seen before with the world of Pandora.

People complained that the plot of Avatar was unoriginal, but that’s not the point of the movie. I was never bored for one second with this one.

The award for my favorite movie of 2009 goes to District 9.

I love everything about this movie. I love how this movie was directed by a relatively inexperienced director (Neil Blompkamp) with a first time actor in Sharlto Copley. This movie had a fraction of the budget of so many bad action flicks that come out of Hollywood, and it blows most of them away.

With District 9, I was constantly being surprised. It was funny at times and it was crushing at others. You’re not sure who to root for and who is right at times. I think that is the point, and I can’t wait to see what director Neil Blompkamp will do next.
