The musical or the animated flick?

Haven't seen either, so I can't really judge (though post-apocalyptic musicals can be fun - Repo!  The Genetic Opera is kind of an oddball fave of mine...)

The uber religious crap at the end of the animated "Nine"

ruined the entire movie for me.  That movie was a cake with iced with manure.

Man'- warr is the proper pronunciation. It's french you know.

And so a film about the number nine is a disappointment to you?  What was it, a documentary on mathematics 'n such?

Good pics, MH

Your top 4 will all almost certainly end up my top 10 list for the year.  I also enjoyed Adventureland and 500 Days of Summer, but I'm not sure if they'll make the cut.  Stay tuned....

(Hey, we have to pick up the slack since Aron is gone).

I still have a fair number of movies to see (esp. Hurt Locker - must have something to do with the current state of distribution for smaller films, but it's rare for a film to get that level of critical acclaim while only making about $12 million...)

Anyways, I meant to put District 9 on that list, but forgot - also, Up in the Air has a good shot of making the cut (weirdly enough, this year's year-end crop seems kind of weak apart from Avatar and a few other films, might have something to do with Nine flopping and Lovely Bones getting bad reviews)
