One of the contributors at The Digital Bits recently posted his “best films of 2009” column. His actual list didn’t mean much to me, since I haven’t seen a single one of the films he picked. But I did find this paragraph amusing:

2009 will also go down in history as the year Hollywood officially ran out of titles. OK, I imagine very few people confused Up with Up In The Air. But between District 9, 9 and Nine, there was very little danger of anybody forgetting what year it was. And I can only assume that a couple folks had to convince their friends that no, they hadn’t already seen A Single Man a few weeks ago. That had been A Serious Man…. And I cannot believe we’re now at a stage where you have to specify which movie you’re talking about if you mention Halloween II.

Unoriginal movie titles are nothing new, but I must admit I hadn’t realized it had gotten that bad. But Adam Jahnke left out the worst offender of 2009, in my opinion: Star Trek.
