Quentin Tarantino’s Top Films of 2009

Posted by LiveFor on December 15, 2009

He hasn’t seen a few films such as Avatar and The Lovely Bones, but his list of the top 8 is pretty good.

I agree with him on a few of them. However, I haven’t seen all of the films and I have to disagree with him and many other people on An Education being a great film. I thought it was absolutely dreadful – like a poor ITV Sunday evening drama with poor characterisation, ridiculous story and it seemed to lose its nerve half way through (yes I know it is based on a true story). After reading good things about it I really wanted to like it, but it sucked big ones. As for Carey Mulligan’s character everyone is raving on her performance which was good, but I just wanted to shake her character and say stop being so stupid….Hmm well that turned into a bit of a rant didn’t it!

Star Trek and Drag Me to Hell were both excellent.

I’ll let Quentin get on with it.

What do you think of his list? Agree or disagree?

I’ve not posted my 2009 Year in Review which includes my Top 10 Movies.

    I disagree with you – An Education was great. I didn’t expect to like it – but apart from anything else, it was incredibly refreshing to see a film with so many well-written women.

      I’m not sure. I felt both the main characters parents were poorly written and their decisions made no sense with the information we were given. Olivia Williams as her teacher and Emma Thompson as the headmistress were both good though.

      However, I thought Peter Sarsgaard’s character was a mish mash of cliches that have been in numerous other films.

      May have been because of all the positive reviews I had read before seeing it, but it all felt stale and like so many films and TV shows before. I’m sure the old BBC kids show Grange Hill covered similar ground.
