More from the year in movies

71. Sunshine Cleaning (2008) “Life’s a messy business” I really enjoyed this film.

72. Watchmen (2009) “This city is afraid of me. I’ve seen its true face.” Amazing film but then again I’m partial to superhero movies and this is one of the best hero comic ever written. I didn’t really care about the differences in the book and the film, unlike lots of comic fans I’m able to enjoy both based on their own merits.
73. The Matrix: Reloaded (2003) “Free Your Mind”. Good movie, but at this point I think everyone thought the series could still end in a satisfying way. I suppose in the end any movie that features Trinity in that outfit is a plus.
74. Alien Nation (1988) “Prepare Yourself” I really like this movie, I’ve seen it a couple of times over the years and it’s really a decent detective movie with aliens.
75. Matrix: Revolutions (2003) “Everything that has a beginning has an end”. Besides the fact that the ending is pretty unsatisfying this was a really cool movie. Maybe if the first Matrix movie hadn’t been so utterly amazing then the expectations for the rest of the trilogy wouldn’t have been so high and therefore not such a letdown.
76. Beer Wars (2009) “Brewed in America” This was a really interesting documentary on one of my favorite things.

77. The Hangover (2009) “Some guys just can’t handle Vegas” Here in France this was called “The Long Weekend” then again a hangover here is a “head of wood”. Anyway this was my movie of the year, I can’t tell you how many times I watched it.
78. Blood: The Last Vampire (2009) “Where evil grows she preys.” Japanese schoolgirl who kicks ass, what’s not to like?
79. Adventureland (2009) “It was the worst job they ever imagined… and the time of their lives.” This was a great movie.
80. Angels and Demons(2009) “The holiest event of our time, perfect for their return.” Not bad for what it was but a good example of the book being much better than the movie.

We love The Hangover, and quote it on a regular basis.
"hey, she's a nice lady" is a favorite, as well as "there were skittles in there!" which is always true about my purse, at all times. Its a rule that i have to have skittles. i eat two a day. this kills zac that i don't scarf the whole bag at once. anyways, i got off topic, but we love that movie!
