I know, it would seem I didn't like this film because I sided with the anti-Paranormal Activity bandwagon. It wasn't that I didn't like the film. I liked it . I just don't think it was the Second Coming. I bought the hype and was hoping for more. Having said my peace let me say that it is scary, especially the last few minutes. What is important about this flick, and why it makes my list, is because for good or bad, it's success means we will be seeing a lot more horror films. Go Paranormal Activity!!!
One of my favorite books of all time. This is a good scary movie for the little ones.....
Ok, this is not really a horror flick. But it does have Zombies. And Woody Harrelson. And someone who pays attention to Zombie survival rules. People think it is weird when I get drunk and lecture them on how to survive a Zombie outbreak. They won't be laughing when they are all Zombies.
Should have seen this in 2007. Should have seen it in 2008. Finally saw it in 2009. Worth the wait and every bit as wonderful as they said. I bought it on faith and was richly rewarded. Plus, that little sucker is still haunting my dreams...........
The most fun I have had at the movies all year (with the exception of The Road.) Scary, gory, and funny as hell, it marks the return of Sam Raimi to the genre where he belongs. Plus, it has a talking goat. Take that Anti-Christ. Chaos reigns indeed.
Speaking of Basterds, here are my favorite non-horror films of the year:
Watchmen (yes, I liked this one)
And my favorite film of the year:
This movie had me crying like a freakin baby. I have seen very few films that capture what it is like to be a child as well as this one does.
*There are SO MANY films I didn't get a chance to see this year that would probably be on this list. And many films that I did see that should be on a "Best of " list, like Precious and Deadgirl, but this is my favorite list. These are films from this year that I do or will own and watch again and again. Like Resident Evil. I love that flick!! Do you know that they play it on the "Oxygen" channel all the time?!
