Best Films – 2009

Up, The Flawed Guru, Movie Review, Film ReviewWith 2014 now here, means it’s time for my Best And Worst Films of 2013 list, but seeing as this is my new blog, I thought recapping my past lists all this week could be a good way to start, and plus it means I get 4 more days to refine my top and bottom films of last year.

So, let’s get the ball rolling with my first full year of film reviewing, as even though I started in 2008, it was only in the last couple months, so 2009 was my official first full year. It was also still a time that I was finding my feet in the reviewing world, and so the amount of films doesn’t come anywhere near the years that followed.

When making these lists, I stick to a rule of only adding films that I saw at the cinema. This does mean that some great films are left off the list due to the fact I only saw them on DVD, Blu-ray, or VOD, but I felt like it was a good rule to stick to. Well, that was until 2013, but more on that with Friday’s list.

These are all the marks I gave the films from when I first saw them and wrote the reviews, and even at a glance I can see some films that I now rate higher, and some I may even rate lower, but hindsight is 20/20 as they say. So, because of that, I’m going to leave these marks and rankings just as they are, even though I may update them when I repost the actual film reviews at a later date.
