THE IMAGINARIUM OF DR.PARNASSUS (2009)
Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus movie poster

Morality tales have never been as gloriously fantastical as Terry Gilliam’s Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus.

***1/2
 
ASTRO BOY (2009)
Astro Boy movie poster

Astro Boy is a fun sci-fi adventure that will resonate with older fans and win younger viewers.

***
MOON (2009)
Moon movie poster

A throwback to the golden era of 1970s sci-fi, Moon is a long overdue and morally relevant antidote to the overblown bombast of today’s science fiction.

****
 
JULIE & JULIA (2009)
Julie & Julia

Two true stories are merged into one delicious treat of a film in Julie & Julia.

****
COUPLES RETREAT (2009)
Couples Retreat

Lavishly shot yet lagging in execution, Couples Retreat comes across more as a place worth visiting than a movie worth enduring.

**1/2
 
MAO'S LAST DANCER (2009)
Mao's Last Dancer movie poster

Mao’s Last Dancer overcomes generic biopic devices thanks to passionate performances and an inspirational story which has transferred well from page to screen.

***1/2
500 DAYS OF SUMMER (2009)
500 Days of Summer movie poster

Zany visuals and spirited performances makes 500 Days of Summer an entertaining chronicle of the making and breaking of a modern secular relationship. 

****
 
FUNNY PEOPLE (2009)
Funny People movie poster

Ambitious in theme and length, with a much lower laugh rate compared to his previous work, Judd Apatow’s Funny People is his weakest feature yet.
