2009 MOVIES and TV SHOWS in review

article by David Blackwell

 

2009 was an interesting year with many good and bad entries in the film and TV world.  This article lists what I liked the best for movies and TV shows for 2009.

 

MOVIES:

STAR TREK (2009)

DISTRICT 9

PANDORUM

INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS

ZOMBIELAND

PARANORMAL ACTIVITY

WATCHMEN Director's Cut

IN THE ELECTRIC MIST

LET THE RIGHT ONE IN

 

TV SHOWS:

BATTLESTAR GALACTICA-  A great for a fantastic series that is now over.  I don’t like the last few minutes of the finale though.

FLASH FORWARD- It is an intriguing series with plenty of twists and questions.  Must-See TV on Thursday.  Too bad the show isn’t back on until mid-March, but the first half of the show is out on DVD next month if you haven’t been watching.

LOST- The fifth season is one of the best with plenty of time travel, twists, and flashbacks.   The cliffhanger makes me wonder what happens next and what they have in store for the sixth and final season with the quantum physics they threw at viewers about time travel for season five.

STARGATE UNIVERSE- The best of the STARGATE shows so far as the series focuses more on character based sci-fi without resorting to big alien villains.  It is about the wrong people getting stuck on a ship millions of light years from home with little chance of getting back home on a starship they don’t control.  The series is close to being like traditional sci-fi without relying on action-based sci-fi or fights against aliens each week.

DEFYING GRAVITY- It is a sci-fi show from Canada that aired on ABC back in August and cancelled (and pulled) before the last five episodes could be aired.   It goes back and forth between a interplanetary mission and five years ago when people were being trained for the mission.   I do think the alien in teh cargo hold thing could have been done away with and this show could have been a solid drama about manned space travel.  You can catch the whole series on DVD
