I know that it’s only December 15th and it’s probably a little early to think of New Years and everything but I decided to create a few lists of things that I liked from 2009. Yeah, that’s right.
1. 500 Days of Summer – here.
2. Bright Star – here
3. The Reader
As terrifying as it was to continuously see Kate Winslet get naked I still loved this movie. It was super dramatic and I just wish there wasn’t ridiculous ladies next to me pointing out all the obvious aspects of it. I love David Kross.
It may not have been as good as the graphic novel but I don’t know what people really expected! With something like this it’s nearly impossible that it would please everybody. But I enjoyed it!
5. Inglourious Basterds
I hated watching the scalping but I still loved it ahaha. It’s nice seeing BJ Novak in something other than The Office and I do love Brad Pitt (in good movies, anyway)!
6. I Love You, Man
Jason Segel and Paul Rudd are two of my favourite men of all time.
This was super creepy in 3d! I didn’t expect that ahaha
Television Show Moments
1. Supernatural – 5.08 Changing Channels (mainly the intro)
2. The Office – Jim and Pam’s wedding (this video is lame but my favourite part is the last like.. 25 seconds)
3. Dexter – The ENTIRE season was amazing. Jon Lithgow was actually terrifying and he totally deserves to win some sort of award for this. My heart raced during every single episode out of anticipation but I think the most powerful moment was the last 4 minutes of the season (major spoiler!). It was a tie between that scene and the scene were Dexter finally snaps at Arthur.
4. Chuck – Chuck and Sarah
Songs (maybe not from 2009 but I liked them a lot this year!)
1. XXXX (The First Thousand Years of Solitude) – Crime in Stereo
2. The Great Escape – We Are Scientists
3. Creature Fear – Bon Iver
4. West Coast – Coconut Records
5. Hymn of the Medical Oddity – The Weakerthans
1. It’s Blitz! – Yeah Yeah Yeahs
2. Davy – Coconut Records
3. Hazards of Love – The Decemberists
4. Years of Refusal – Morrissey
5. Hold Time – M. Ward
