This action flick took the world by storm! Centered around a paraplegic marine who must complete a mission in Pandora, “Avatar” portrays the internal struggle of following orders while protecting a world he loves.  

“Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince” (Rated PG)

Even though many consider this film to be the slowest-moving in the “Harry Potter” series, “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince” shed light on many unanswered questions in the beloved franchise. The entire “Harry Potter” collection is worth watching time and time again.

“Sherlock Holmes” (Rated PG-13)

This first movie in the Sherlock Holmes franchise stars Robert Downey Jr. as Sherlock and Jude Law as Watson. The pair, along with some helpful allies, use their wits and strengths to outsmart their enemy and save England.

“Up” (Rated PG)

This Disney comedic adventure spreads messages of love, loss, and acceptance. Carl embarks on an adventure (along with his house!) to Paradise Falls to fulfill his late wife’s dreams. He collects some new companions along the way, including my personal favorite, Doug the dog.

“The Lovely Bones” (Rated PG-13)

This thriller centers around a young girl who has been murdered. While watching over her family in the afterlife, she must choose to either face her killer or help her family heal.

These 7 movies give just a taste of the fantastic films that came out in 2009. Can you believe that these movies came out a decade ago? Crazy, right?
