I don't see many movies these days, but I agree that District 9 was phenomenal. I really want to see The Hurt Locker.

I didn't see enough new movies in 2009 to offer a serious comment. However, I will get a jump on 2010, and disagree with the majority of critics, by giving a huge recommendation of Brooklyn's Finest. An intense and intelligent film.
