  • My Sister’s Keeper (2008) – about a girl suing her parents for medical emancipation after being genetically engineered to be used as parts for her sister with cancer. I cried…a lot.
  • The Lovely Bones (2009) – No where near as good or true to the book…of course
  • Precious (2009) – wow. There was absolutely nothing positive about this movie. Nothing.
  • Hunger (2008) – exceptionally well-done, visually moving portrayal of the 1981 Irish Hunger Strike and it’s leader: Bobby Sands
  • Julie & Julia (2009) – cute. I absolutely love Meryl Streep. This movie makes me want to step my cooking game up!
  • Public Enemies (2009) – I love this era. Love Depp, Bale, and Michael Mann. Could’ve been better character development, but visually, it was a masterpiece
  • The Band’s Visit (2007) – First Israeli movie I’ve seen.  Very low key, relaxed feel with a universal message.
  • The Hangover (2009) – Newly voted the most hilarious film I have ever watched!
  • The Proposal (2009) – It’s cute. I laughed. But hey, I’m a girl – a sucker for a romantic comedy, what can I say?
  • Terminator Salvation (2009) – While I love me some Christian Bale, this movie just didn’t live up to my expectations for concluding the Terminator series…whomp whomp.
  • Foxfire (1996) – One of Angelina Jolie’s earlier works and very cutting edge
  • Doubt (2008) – To call it a let down is the definition of an understatement.

Want to watch/anticipating release:

  • Funny People (2009) – I love comedies!
  • Gone with the Wind (1939) – Only because I’ve never seen it before and I’m tired of people gasping whenever I say that.
  • 21 Grams (2003) – Another pieced-together story plot and directed by the same man who directed Babel.
  • Fame (2009) – I love love love Fame. Just love it!
