OK. It's that time of the year where everyone makes a top 10 list. I'm not a critic or movie blogger but it's always fun to make a list of memorable movies I watch in the same year.

So, I've chosen my ten favorite movies of the year (not necessarily the best ones) not in any particular order. Also, since I travel a lot, some of the movies are yet to be released in Korea or some were released last year in the U.S. Or some haven't been seen in the U.S. yet. Either way, these are the movies I will remember from the year 2009.

1. Gran Torino
2. Slumdog Millionaire
3. Vicky Cristina Barcelona
4. Up
5. The Informant!
6. The Class
7. Inglourious Basterds
8. Up in the Air
9. Avatar
10. Ponyo

(Other memorable films: Doubt, Mother, District 9, A Brand New Life, Broken Embraces, Frost/Nixon)

I definitely love 'UP!'..that's the best movie of the year for me!
I am absolutely blown away that this movie (Gran Torino) is #84 on the IMDb top movies of all time list.

By "The Class" you mean "Entre les murs"? if so, I watched 6 of your list, I'll check the other ones :)

(I'll also have to check your movies hehe)

I loved the Informant -- I did not find it to be a comedy (although some funny parts). It was really, really, really disturbing and great entertainment. I compare it more to Fargo.
