Avatar (2009)


Note : After seeing Avatar, I realized that 3D movies could be great and not a complete swindle. The story is maybe not original but still pretty entertaining and the visuals are just mind-blowing. Coming out of the movie theater, I had probably the same feeling when people just saw Star Wars back in 1977. Just blown away...

Note : It is such a masterpiece, one of the best French movies I have seen during the last decade. I was already impressed by Audiard's previous directing feature, 'De battre mon coeur s'est arrêté', but this was even better. It is one of the grimmest, dreariest jail drama I have ever seen.

Note : Though not my Pixar favorite (Wall-E is the best), it is still a great picture. The best part, for me, was the heartbreaking introduction. So daring, so emotional, only Pixar could pull something like that.

Note : It is the most hilarious movie I have seen in years, it is that good. I'm usually really critical about comedies but this one was just a real riot, especially the first 30 minutes. It is very smart, very witty and so f*cking funny. Furthermore, I'm a huge fan of movies dealing with politics and it must be the best political satire I have ever seen. It is absolutely and definitely worth a look, especially if you like some good old British humor.

Note : It is a fascinating story. I was a bit hard to follow as I'm French and I saw it in Swedish with Dutch subtitles... But still I loved it and this girl Noomi Rapace gave a very strong and amazing performance.

District 9 (2009)


Note : A very interesting and entertaining movie. The 1st half is just great. the 2nd half is little too much action-oriented for my taste but still a very good and original picture.

Note : I was curious about this movie because it is directed by Wes Anderson but also skeptical because I'm not a huge fan of Roald Dhal. No reasons to worry because it was much better than I thought it would be. It is a very original animated movie, it looks gorgeous and I just loved the dialogs. Definitely worth a look.

Watchmen (2009)


Note : What a trip! It must be the darkest super-hero movie, alongside The Dark Knight, of course. Honestly, it took me a while to get into the story but it was worth it. The more you get to know about the characters and their inner struggle, the more I felt captivated by the whole story. And it is a really gorgeous movie.

Note : Not as good as Thank you for smoking but better than Juno (good but so overrated), Jason Reitman continues his winning streak. A great and compelling story, George Clooney on top of his game. What more do you need ?

Note : I think I still prefer Ferrara's movie as it was more intense, and even more awesome but this is easily one of the best remakes ever made. It is some rather dark and completely amoral material and the mainstream audience probably won't dig it but I really loved it.
