G’s Top Movies of 2009

Posted by The G on December 15, 2009 under G Reviews | 2 Comments to Read

It has been an extremely underwhelming year for movies this year, according2g.

I couldn’t come up with 10 movies I enjoyed, but here’s a few:

Anvil! The Story of Anvil.  This is a documentary about the Canadian rockers who never ever gave up on their dreams, no matter how many times it looks like they should have.

The Yes Men Fix the World.  Another documentary that is a big F-U to mainstream media.

The Hurt Locker.  A depiction of a group of men that disarm bombs.  An explosive movie, to say the least.

A couple that are not making my list: Precious and New Moon.  Two overrated, overhyped and mediocre movies.

What were your top picks of 2009?  Don’t be shy.

If you haven’t seen Anvil!  The Story of Anvil, I highly recommend it.  It’s a documentary of the heavy metal band Anvil who, despite tough times and virtual obscurity for over 25 years, continue to rock!  This movie is such an inspiration to never give up your dreams, no matter what!  I went to an exclusive screening of the film in the East Village in Manhattan with Gail of the awesome blog www.worleygig.com. We were fortunate to not only see the documentary, but were treated to a live set by the rockers after the movie was over.  If that’s not enough, Chris Martin of the band Coldplay was in attendance and he was gracious enough to pose for a picture with me.  Pix of me with Chris Martin as well as pictures of me with Robb Reiner, Anvil’s drummer and “Lips” Kudlow, Anvil’s lead singer, after the jump.
