My Best & Worst Films of 2009

Now I have not seen allll the films of 2009, but I have seen a great many this year. The year of 2009 has been a great year for film in all ranges of the category from cinematography, directing, writing and beyond. This year will be remembered for a long time to me as it was the year I gained this hobby/love interest of film. I wish I could have seen every film I wanted to this year as it would probably change my list, but we all can’t afford to see that many movies. Continue after the jump to see my picks for my best and worst of 2009:

Box Office Battlefield: ‘Bruno’ and ‘I Love You Beth Cooper’

battle field

I Love You, Beth Cooper (Hayden Panettiere, Paul Rust) Teenage high school comedy about the geeky valedictorian, Denis Cooverman, admitting his love to the high school hottie crush, Beth Cooper, during his graduation speech. This creates an array of  events that end up being the wildest night of his life. Will he get the cheerleader or just get his ass beat buy her older boyfriend? This looks like a funny movie and is directed by Chris Columbus (Home Alone, Mrs. Doubtfire and Harry Potter 1 & 2). I’d suggest go see it with a date or something. It’s a nice teen romantic comedy.

Brüno (Sacha Baron Cohen) A more than flaming Austrian goes on the hunt around the world creating havoc to find the latest fashion trends. From going on talk shows, adopting a black child, camping, and joining the army, Brüno will end up seeing a lot of lawsuits after the movie comes out most likely. This is the 3rd film under Mr. Cohen’s belt for his own created characters. It is really short, 83 minutes, and apparently shortened due to the death of Michael Jackson; I heard 70 minutes. It will be a good tear inducing laugh your ass of comedy from what it seems.

Blood: The Last Vampire (Gianna Jun, Allison Miller) I don’t know much about this film, but apparently it is about a vampire girl named Saya who is part of covert government agency that hunts and destroys demons in a post-WWII Japan, is inserted in a military school to discover which one of her classmates is a demon is disguise. I think this is a creation from an anime turned manga and now a live action film. I can’t really say more than that.

I Love You, Chris Columbus

Hey look, an exclusive interiew, thanks to, with I Love You, Beth Cooper director Chris Columbus (Home Alone, Mrs. Doubtfire, Harry Potter 1 & 2) and the cute little Hayden Panettiere. They go on to talk about their relationship to high school Chris’s decision to film a movie like this. It looks like a decent high school comedy romance adventure movie. It reminds me of a little bit of Can’t Hardly Wait sorta, kinda, maybe? Go to to watch the interviews. Thanks Columbus for giving us this new sexy vision of Ms. Panettiere.
