Here are some of my favorite films
When it comes movies about the Iraq War, nothing comes close to the Hurt Locker. Directed by Kathryn Bigelow, oddly enough the ex-wife of another director on my list, this movie offered an incredible look at one man’s story of bomb squad life in hostile territory. The cinematography in this movie was insanely good.
If you are a fan of anything that’s awesome then Avatar has to be on your list of favorite movies. This movie 123 movie was absolutely incredible. James Cameron has truly mastered the art of showing us his imagination.
The planet of Pandora was unlike anything we, as viewers, have ever seen and the 3D technology truly made you feel as if you were on this foreign planet.
Both the aforementioned movies were exceptional, but my favorite movie of the year goes to District 9.
Directed by Neil Blompkamp and starring Sharlto Copley in his acting debut, this movie blew away all my expectations. The budget was somewhere in the 20 million range, however the action in this movie was only trumped by Avatar. That is saying something considering all the lackluster action movies Hollywood releases every year (Yes I am talking to you Michael Bay).
I truly loved District 9 and felt as if I never knew where it would go next. There is an endless list of adjectives I can use to describe this one, but words can’t do it justice. If you are a fan of science fiction and/or suspenseful movies, then this is a must see.
