The best movie I saw in 2009 was also the last movie I saw in 2009 â€“ The Time Travelerâ€™s Wife. I loved this movie!! I was a big fan of the book (once I figured out what on earth was going on, about a third of the way into the story), but I would have to say this is one of those rare occasions where the movie was arguably better than the book. My husband would never read a book like that, but he loved the movie, too. Itâ€™s funny, sad, all those great things.
Other great movies of â€™09: Last Chance Harvey, Young Victoria, Ghost Town (or was that 2008?). Great movies of 2009 that I havenâ€™t seen yet but will make sure I do: Julie & Julia, Avatar, District 9, Hangover. Movies that I had high hopes of but which disappointed: 500 Days of Summer, The Informant. Movie that I never wanted to see, but got talked into and wished I hadnâ€™t: The Class.
