Favorite movies of 2009
I watched more new movies in 2009 than any year in the last ten so it would seem making a list of ten would be easy. But it turns out it just gets tougher to make these lists. Plus, I still have not seen some of the major year-end contenders so the lists here won't be complete until I see those films. Still, it was a good year.
