Mudcub's Best And Worst Movies (So Far) of 2009

 Mudcub's Top Movies of 2009
I have a hard time completing a top movie list by the end of the year. So many films only come out in specialized markets for a week or two... just long enough to qualify for Oscar nominations when the movie "really" comes out. Yes, Master Thor, I envy you... seeing things in New York City that don't come out in the hinterlands until weeks later. So, there are dozens of contenders I haven't seen yet. I'll wait for the DVD to come out, which might not be until the middle of 2010. So, I'll try to post an updated list next summer, but until then, here are some things I saw this year that I really liked:
1. Coraline
2. Where The Wild Things Are
3. Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs
4. The Brothers Bloom
5. Persepolis
6. Julie & Julia
7. Role Models
8. Trick 'R Treat
9. State Of Play
10. Son Of Rambow
Star Trek
Let The Right One In
Zack And Miri Make A Porno
Big Stan
The Devil's Miner
Ghost Town
Crank 2: High Voltage
District 9
Mudcub's Worst Movies of 2009
...and then there are the stinkers. I really regret the hours of my valuable time that these movies sucked away from me. Like the "Most Disappointing CDs" list earlier, these were all movies that I starting watching fully intending to like them. Sure, I often love watching bad movies on purpose. I want to see "From Justin To Kelly" soon. But that's a different list. These are the films that broke my heart and made me realize how bad bad cinema can really be:
1. Knowing
2. Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen
3. The Cell 2
4. Underworld: Rise Of The Lycans
5. Seven Pounds
6. Four Christmases
7. The Final Destination (aka Final Destination 4: Death Trip)
8. 12 Rounds
9. Gran Turino
10. Mirrors
Race To Witch Mountain
The Killing Room
The Time Traveler's Wife
Pineapple Express
Bride Wars
Dance Flick
The Book of Blood
House Of 9
The Eschelon Conspiracy
