This was a year of extremes: huge CG-heavy spectacles and low-budget gems. Most of all, 2009 made us feel the boundaries of cinema were stretched... for good and ill. Here are the 10 best and 10 worst films of 2009.
The Men Who Stare At Goats is about warrior-monks with psychic powers, who call themselves Jedis over and over again. But the movie's structure also echoes the original Star Wars trilogy, and it's full of fun Lucas riffs. Spoilers below...
The Men Who Stare At Goats transports you from the Vietnam War to present-day Iraq, that journey through time succeeds largely thanks to Jeff Bridges and George Clooney. We asked director Grant Heslov how they pulled it off. Minor spoilers...
It's a spoiler-crash! Ed Norton talks Avengers, Milla Jovovich reveals a Resident Evil showdown, and James Marsters shows up in a Caprica ad. Creepy new Doctor Who/Fringe clips! Plus Red Dawn, Ghost Rider, The Box, Supernatural, Smallville, FlashForward and Chuck.
The latest trailer for The Men Who Stare At Goats demonstrates George Clooney's Jedi/ninja skills. Check out his special warrior monk abilities, honed by the U.S. government for secret spy espionage. It's based on a true story!
Now that you've already seen the Jedi mind tactics from the mustached psychic soldier George Clooney, take a look at his hand to hand combat skills as he almost breaks Ewan McGregor's arm. Secret Government warrior monks are hilarious.
The Men Who Stare At Goats features a long-haired drugged-out Jeff Bridges, men trying to run through walls, and hot mustached Clooney-on-goat action. The film, inspired by the military's secret psychic experiments, actually looks pretty hilarious.
