Last year I blogged about the movies I'd seen in 2008. As I've discussed many times, I love a good movie. Heck, I love some not so good movies. There are a lot of reason I enjoy movies. I enjoy the thrill of trying to figure out what's going to happen. I enjoy watching great actors, actors who can make you forget who they really are and other roles they've been in. I even enjoy just trying to figure out how they filmed a specific scene. Netflix is my primary source for this movie viewing habit. At the end of this entry, you can see my entire list, all 54 movies I watched from Netflix in 2009. Instead of reviewing every movie, like I did last year, there are just a few I want to highlight for you... So, here are the Shawny Awards for 2009:
Best movie that brought back good childhood memories: G.I. Joe
Best movie that went from my "Not interested" list to my "Liked it" list: The Proposal
Most overrated movie: The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button.
Most out loud laughs from a movie: Step Brothers (wait for it on cable so they can clean it up )
Most tears shed: Marley & Me
Best Actress: Meryl Streep in "Doubt". Wow, that lady can really act.
Best Movie Title: How to Lose Friends and Alienate People
Best Actor: Meryl Streep (She's so good one award was not enough.)
