Year in Review--2009

Today, CNN posted this article in support of independent film (or at least low-to-mid budget films), as well as the dismissing the Hollywood blockbuster that has been dominating box offices in the recent years. Mr. Charity notes the the higher the Hollywood film budget, the less money alloted for smaller, but not as profitable, films. It's a recession trend that only makes sense to Hollywood.

Yes, 2009 has had many mediocre box office baits, but the article highlights some gems, mostly of the indie nature. The film that gets the top honors is the Coen Brothers' A Serious Man. Other films on the "best" list include the critically acclaimed The Hurt Locker and Two Lovers.

Hmmm, films that are considered the worst: well, Transformers 2 is one (I never can remember the entire name). Good job, CNN.

Happy Filmmaking!
