October 2009 Movies

Two months pass; two movies off my list. Inglorious Basterds was a fine film, if not in the league of Tarantino's best (Pulp Fiction, Jackie Brown). I imagine a director's cut DVD will reveal the fates of the Basterds who seemingly just disappeared (Samm Levine, etc.). The Hangover suffered from overhype, and it was more ridiculous than funny. It's possible that I've run out of time to see Harry Potter 6 on IMAX, which is a shame, but I'll survive. I'm betting Night at the Museum 2 will be at the Smithsonian just short of forever. So here's my top 10, with movies on DVD in my collection starred as always:

1. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince IMAX
2. The Fall*
3. The Invention of Lying (the Gervais can do no wrong)
4. Night at the Museum 2 IMAX
5. Moon
6. Where the Wild Things Are IMAX
7. Coraline*
8. Zombieland
9. Sherlock Holmes
10. Watchmen: The Ultimate Cut (a bit pricey...I may rent first)
11. Avatar (this looks like it'll suck, but I'll trust Cameron)
12. The Informant!
