They actually showed an English-language movie on the train ride over to Madrid & it was one of my favorites from the past 2-3 years. Ghost Town. If you haven’t seen it yet, do yourself a favor and rent it. Ricky Gervais is one of my favorite comedian-actors and if you like his shtick, then you will find the movie highly entertaining. Of course, as a rom-com it attempts to pull at the heart strings and is able to pull it off admirably. After seeing it 4-5 times, it still gets me. Thumbs up.
I essentially started out my blog with a post about my top 10 movies of 2009. I noted that I hadn't yet seen Fantastic Mr. Fox or Moon. I saw the latter about a week ago and just finished watching Moon. Both were great - and I was right that both belong on the top 10 of '09 (I'm just not sure who they would replace). With his performance in Moon, and previous efforts in Matchstick Men, Confessions of a Dangerous Mind, Frost vs. Nixon and the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy - Sam Rockwell is becoming one of my favorite actors. In every movie I've seen him in, he's always one of the most interesting characters.

ZombielandFor being great for what they were, honorable mentions to: Coraline, Dead Snow, Art & Copy, I Love You Man.Missing are Fantastic Mr. Fox and Moon - both of which I have yet to see, but I have a feeling would make the list.
