Inglourious Basterds was probably my favorite movie this year. But I also really loved The Informant, which apparently no one in the world actually saw. Other than that, The Hangover was probably the funniest movie I've seen in a long time. And I still really want to see Sherlock Holmes, it looks great.

The Daniel Day-Lewis one is called "Nine", not "9". Subtle difference

I almost went to see it, but everything in the trailer was so derivative I didn't bother.

Ridiculously irrational, pointless violence, painfully flawed plot.
Trying so hard to be offensive it just isn't funny.
Teen-horror nonsense with dire acting.

Does that help? If you can promise me any of those summations are wrong I will happily give the films a look. I love finding out a film I thought would be crap is actually decent, but your arguments will have to be good, and I will find you if you're wrong

Well, I'll defend Basterds against that charge, not that the reality is going to please you much more. The truth is there's probably like an aggregated fifteen minutes of violence in the 2.5 hour movie, and it's mostly incredibly tense scenes peppered with excellent and often hilarious dialogue.

EDIT: You're right about the Hangover but I love it. You're right about Bruno and I hate it.

Ravenheart, Iv only seen the Hangover anmd Drag me to Hell out of that list, and while the Hangover was essentially a comedy that made me laugh, but nothing too special, drag me to hell was good, why? because it wasn't a teen horror!

1) the killer was supernatural, not some guy who couldn't get laid or who was having nightmares about how he got rejected as a child by the mothers or relatives of the people he is now killing.

2) the gore level was epic, and funny, and genuinely at times sickening, name me a major release movie that had that level of gore in an actual horror movie? Note major release movie.

3) It entertained me, and I am hard to please when it comes to horror.

I haven't changed ur mind though, why? because its ur opinion, and not mine. Opinion is not something that will suddenly change when someone makes a decent argument why somethin is good. Besides, from what iv noticed you're a proper grouch at times, so I dont really care, im just killing time!

Don't. It wasn't that good. I don't know if it had anything to do with me being tired while watching it, but I found it really hard to follow.

Anyway my favorites from this year are probably Taken (though it came out in 08 in other countries), Watchmen, Terminator Salvation, Extract, Avatar, The Hangover, and my favorite for the whole year, Zombieland.

I unfortunately have yet to see Inglorious Basterds, District 9, or Star Trek, but hopefully I will soon.

Like I said, I'm happy to try movies I didn't see because I thought they looked shit if someone can offer reasons to do so. You were on to a winner until that last paragraph, which started accurately if we're talking about something each person has experienced, but we're not, so it's irrelevant. And the last line was just childish.

Oh, and if the status of Drag Me To Hell is how we're measuring "major", then Antichrist was at the same level here, and destroys any movie ever for sickening violence and gore. I've only heard from some movie aficionado friends who just had to see it about its content, and frankly, I don't want to see it.
