Old Dan Cedar's Best and Worst of 2009


By Old Dan Cedar - Posted on 07 March 2010

Worst Movies of 2009

1) Where The Wild Things Are – Many things made this a ridiculously bad movie, but none worst than the academic elitist movie reviewers trying to goad us into watching this piece of monkey excrement by telling us it was a fine retelling of a children’s classic.

2) Where The Wild Things Are – OK, so now you get it. I hated this movie. Maybe it’s because I don’t TRY to go see GOOD movies. As defined by the critics. Oh, yeah, I forgot. Those guys are Morons!

3) Where The Wild Things Are – Last Thing: It’s up for a fucking Academy Award!! Am I in the fucking Twilight Zone?

4) Public Enemies – Johnny Depp – another favorite of every weird fucking fuck that ever completed his PhD – didn’t know what to do with it - then used daddy’s connections at The New Yorker to get a job in the copy room until he could blow his way into writing movie reviews. This movie was long, felt longer and tried unsuccessfully to rip off a great movie –Bonnie and Clyde.

5) Inglourious Basterds – Tarantino continues his slide down hill. Just goes to show you that a movie with a great premise and clever dialogue doesn’t have to be great – or even good.

Best Movies of 2009

1) (500) Days of Summer – For all of those cynical folks – like me- that thought it was impossible to have an original romantic comedy. Consider me Summer schooled.

2) District 9 – Aliens invade the world. Again, I thought this was downtrodden earth. But a wonderful performance by Sharlto Copley as a bumbling corporate drone with a heart of gold overcomes the low expectations. And no – I don’t go see movies for CGI!

3) UP – When I first saw this movie – I didn’t expect to see anything better in a year. Brilliant storytelling that made me cry like a baby. Yes, again!

4) Star Trek – The odds that I put on this movie capturing the characters and writing from the days gone by of The Wrath of Khan and previous – were lottery. A great young cast of characters and don’t forget about the writing.

5) Food, Inc – I am not much of a conspiracy buff. But this story is educational, a little paranoid and a little preachy. In a good way. One thing for sure – I won’t ever think about dinner the same way again.

PALIN PLANS FOR FUTURE - MONEY SHOT!!

Wasilla, AK - Today, soon to be ex-Governor of Alaska Sarah Palin, announced more specifics on her puzzling decision to step down from her role as governor of Alaska.

Appearing at a press conference, that was ripe with double entendre, and fully heightened in four inch red, high heels, a black pleather mini-skirt and a white, ruffled, half-unbuttoned blouse – “Caribou Barbie” as some have dubbed her, came out with ordnance ablaze.
