I doubt I'm going to go past 50, but I thought I'd keep track of all the movies I watch (fully) this year anyway with this meme that's been floating around.

  1. I watch 100 movies or more in 2009.
  2. I keep track of how many I watch in this post.
  3. I only record first-time movies.
  4. If you want to recommend any movies to me, go for it.

Updated: December 31. This is probably as good as it's going to get.
  1. Penélope (2006 | Christina Ricci, James McAvoy, Catherine O' Hara, Reese Witherspoon | Director: Mark Palansky | Trailer). I have mixed feelings about this movie.Collapse )
  2. Napoleon Dynamite (2004 | Jon Heder | Director: Jared Hess | Trailer). The opening credits were pretty much the only things I enjoyed.Collapse )
  3. The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (2008 | Brad Pitt, Cate Blanchett | Director: David Fincher | Trailer). I LOVED THIS.Collapse )
  4. Lolita (1962 | James Mason, Sue Lyon, Shelley Winters, Peter Sellers | Director: Stanley Kubrick | Trailer). Considering the shitload of things that had to be cut out to get past the censors, this version was pretty faithful to the book.Collapse )
  5. The Blossoming of Maximo Oliveros (Ang Pagdadalaga ni Maximo Oliveros) (2005 | Nathan Lopez | Director: Auraeus Solito | Trailer) Before anything else, I admit to having zero knowledge of local cinema.Collapse )
  6. Hallam Foe (2007 | Jamie Bell, Sophia Myles, Ciaran Hinds, Claire Forlani | Director: David Mackenzie | Trailer) They say that those who need love the most deserve it the least.Collapse )
  7. Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist (2008 | Michael Cera, Kat Dennings | Director: Peter Sollett | Trailer) TAKE ME TO NEW YORK NOW.Collapse )
  8. Slumdog Millionaire (2008 | Dev Patel, Freida Pinto | Director: Danny Boyle | Trailer) I'm writing this right after watching the Oscars, and I have to say that this film deserved everything it got.Collapse )
  9. Valkyrie (2008 | Tom Cruise | Director: Bryan Singer | Trailer) Honestly, even if I was really excited for this movie to come out, I was expecting it to suck.Collapse )
  10. Stardust (2007 | Claire Danes, Charlie Cox, Sienna Miller, Michelle Pfeiffer, Robert de Niro | Director: Matthew Vaughn | Trailer) Not much to say about this one, really.Collapse )
  11. Frost/Nixon (2008 | Frank Langella, Michael Sheen | Director: Ron Howard | Trailer) Don't watch this film in an airplane.Collapse )
  12. Vicky Cristina Barcelona (2008 | Rebecca Hall, Scarlett Johansson, Javier Bardem, Penélope Cruz | Director: Woody Allen | Trailer) I need to watch an old Woody Allen film to understand why people say that his latest ones don't live up to the rest.Collapse )
  13. Pineapple Express (2008 | Seth Rogen, James Franco | Director: David Gordon Green | Trailer) Were the filmmakers trying to replicate the effects of marijuana for the people who watched this?Collapse )
  14. Todo Sobre Mi Madre (All About My Mother) (1999 | Cecilia Roth, Marisa Paredes, Candela Peña, Antonia San Juan, Penélope Cruz, Rosa Maria Sardà | Director: Pedro Almodovar | Trailer) I was originally going to put just Penélope Cruz and Cecilia Roth in the cast list before this cut, but it would have been unfair.Collapse )
  15. M (1931 | Peter Lorre | Director: Fritz Lang | Trailer [not in English, though]) Yeah, I'm never going to watch this with my parents.Collapse )
  16. Angels & Demons (2009 | Tom Hanks, Ewan McGregor, Ayelet Zurer, Stellan Skarsgård | Director: Ron Howard | Trailer) I don't care what anyone says, I actually liked this movie.Collapse )
  17. Son of Rambow (2007 | Bill Milner, Will Poulter, Ed Westwick | Director: Garth Jennings | Trailer)
  18. The Taking of Pelham 123 (2009 | Denzel Washington, John Travolta | Director: Tony Scott | Trailer)
  19. Franklyn (2008 | Eva Green, Ryan Philippe, Sam Riley | Director: Gerald McMorrow | Trailer)
  20. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (2009 | Daniel Radcliffe, Ruper Grint, Emma Watson | Director: David Yates | Trailer) TOO MUCH HARRY/GINNY.Collapse )
  21. Volver (2006 | Penélope Cruz, Carmen Maura, Lola Dueñas, Blanca Portillo, Yohana Cobo | Director: Pedro Almodóvar | Trailer)
  22. Die Welle (The Wave) (2008 | Jürgen Vogel, Frederick Lau, Max Riemelt, Jennifer Ulrich | Director: Dennis Gansel | Trailer)
  23. Coraline (2009 | Voices of: Dakota Fanning, Terri Hatcher, Ian McShane | Director: Henry Selick | Trailer) AMAAAZING.
  24. Rear Window (1954 | James Stewart, Grace Kelly | Director: Alfred Hitchcock | Trailer) New favorite Hitchcock film.
  25. Trois Couleurs: Rouge (Three Colors: Red) (1994 | Irène Jacob, Jean-Louis Trintignant | Director: Krzysztof Kieslowski | Trailer [in French])
  26. The Wizard of Oz (1939 | Judy Garland | Director: Victor Fleming | Trailer)
  27. Dancer in the Dark (2000 | Björk, Catherine Deneuve, David Morse, Peter Stormare | Director: Lars von Trier | Trailer) I can't decide if I like this film or not, if I appreciate films that leave me confused about what I feel about them enough to actually like them.
  28. (500) Days of Summer (2009 | Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Zooey Deschanel | Director: Marc Webb| Trailer) ♥♥♥ x infinity
  29. Arsène Lupin (2004 | Romain Duris, Kristin Scott Thomas, Eva Green | Director: Jean-Paul Salomé | Trailer) The more...unrealistic parts threw me off for a while...Collapse )
  30. Badkonake sefid (The White Balloon) (1995 | Aida Mohammadkhani, Mohsen Kafili | Director: Jafar Panahi | I can't find a trailer)
  31. Bulong (Whisper)*^ (2008 | Sid Lucero, Maita Ponce | Director: Joaquin Valdes | Can't find a trailer) If this is the future of Philippine cinema, then I'm so looking forward to it.Collapse )
  32. Ticker* (2002 | Clive Owen, Don Cheadle | Director: Joe Carnahan | The whole thing)
  33. Un viaje (The Trip)*^ (2004 | Daniel Giménez Cacho, Mauricio Bueno | Director: Gabriela Monroy | Can't find a trailer)
  34. Danya*^ (2005 | Maddi Newling, Ian Bliss, Lija Veikins | Director: Beth Armstrong | Can't find a trailer)
  35. Citizen Kane (1941 | Orson Welles | Director: Orson Welles | Trailer) This is the movie that many critics say is the greatest American movie ever.Collapse )
  36. Inglourious Basterds (2009 | Brad Pitt, Christoph Waltz, Diane Kruger, Mélanie Laurent | Director: Quentin Tarantino | Trailer) I finally watched this!Collapse )
  37. An Education (2009 | Carey Mulligan, Peter Sarsgaard, Rosamund Pike, Dominic Cooper | Director: Lone Scherfig | Trailer) What an amazing cast.Collapse )
  38. Ghost Town (2008 | Ricky Gervais, Téa Leoni, Greg Kinnear | Director: David Koepp | Trailer)
  39. The Boat That Rocked (2009 | Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Bill Nighy, Rhys Ifans, Kenneth Branagh, Tom Sturridge | Director: Richard Curtis | Trailer)
  40. It's A Wonderful Life (1946 | James Stewart, Donna Reed | Director: Frank Capra | Trailer) Perfect movie to watch at the end of the year, I think. Really puts things into perspective.
  41. The September Issue (2009 | Featuring: Anna Wintour, the staff of American Vogue, some designers | Director: R.J. Cutler | Trailer)

I just realized I haven't properly acknowledged the one sad thing about summer: people leaving. And not just the ones leaving for the States or whatever for the summer, but the ones who are going off to college and never coming back. So. Goodbye to the ones I liked. And good riddance to the ones I didn't.
