The 28 Best Movies I Saw In Theaters In 2009

I did a final list of the best movies (that I saw) in 2009. The Oscars are coming up, and my predictions will be forthcoming, but for now, this is the final list of where I saw each film. Of course, my opinion certainly doesn't count, which is why you'll see (500) Days Of Summer as a top 5 film of the year, despite being snubbed entirely at Oscar time.

1. The Hurt Locker

3. Up In The Air

4. (500) Days Of Summer
5. Inglorious Basterds
Star Trek
7. Avatar

15. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
16. I Love You, Man
17. Sherlock Holmes
