Default Your favorite film of 2009.

The year is just about over, so what is your singular choice for favorite film of 2009?

This is obvious, but I'm going with Up. It's written and structured so insanely well, I am still amazed. The character's journey has difficulty, both physically and emotionally, it's unique and original, funny and exciting, sad and heartwarming...all at the same time. It's directed better than every live-action film of the year, the editing is flawless...I can go on forever about how every aspiring writer needs to watch and study Pixar films more than anything else. You can even learn what not to do from the shortcomings of Cars and Ratatouille. It's like a free masterclass on screenwriting every time you watch a Pixar film, and Up is no exception. Without a doubt the greatest film of the year, as well as my favorite.

It might be the post-viewing excitement speaking, but I'd say Avatar. Followed by District 9 and Star Trek - all Sci-Fi...very strange pics for me. I don't usually enjoy that genre.

I'm way behind on my movie watching this year. WAY behind. Thus far, my only contenders are Inglourious Basterds and Sin Nombre.

I'll probably watch Up next week.

Probably AVATAR, but I saw it so recently that it's hard to say for sure; this was a great year for movies.

Also loved: DISTRICT 9, INGLORIOUS BASTERDS, TAKEN, STAR TREK, UP, and THE HANGOVER

2009 was an incredible year for sci-fi, as it 2008 was for comedy.

I'm surprised that Avatar is on so many of your lists. Sure, it looks amazing, but story wise it's plain plagiarism. Perhaps Cameron's ego will lead to him losing another court case...
