Best of 2009: Film

I went to enough movies last year that I should the have the same vitamin D levels as an overweight goth chick.  Of course I still didn't see every movie that came out, so if you're going to get all butt-hurt becasue G.I. Joe isn't on the list, take a moment to ask if I've seen it (I havn't) before you post insulting comments.  And don't even get me started on Avitar

  3. one has to ask if the handcuffs were necessary.

  4. you havent scene role modals yet.

  5. Homie, your comparison jokes are always so hilarious. Check out Anvil; you'll love it.

  6. @Coen bros
    Will do. Infact it's at the Riveriew this week.

    @little black boy
    No, I haven't. However, there is a copy at the house. So, soon...

    Will do, homeslice. Glad you like the jokes.

    Saw it. Liked it; didn't love it. I suppose it could get an honorable mention for the inclusion of Zoe Bell, Drew and other hot chicks. The third Wilson bros was good too. And it did have that odd but wholesome/supportive family value to it.

  7. 500 Days of Summer, my favorite as well.
