We're at that point in the year where folks will start throwing together movie montages looking back at all the films that have crossed our paths over the past 12 months. We've already brought you one such montage, and now Cinematical reader Zack Y. points us toward another one that he created set to what was perhaps the catchiest and most inspiring movie-related tune of 2009: "Wake Up" from Arcade Fire for Spike Jonze's Where the Wild Things Are. And while just about anyone can throw together a bunch of movie clips set to music, it definitely takes some skill to edit them in a way that flows magnificently -- and, in my opinion, Zack totally succeeds in that respect.
Sure, you won't see clips from every single film that came out this year, but more like clips from the films that actually mattered in some way, shape or form -- whether that be because of critical response, fan reaction or blockbuster spectacle (or in some cases all three). Watching these 2009 montages makes me wonder why no one put together one for the decade yet. So, yeah, I'm calling on all those inspired YouTube movie geek editors to throw together a wicked tribute to the past decade in film. And when you do, send it over our way so we can share it with the world.
Watch Zack's 2009 tribute after the jump.
