This is just simply beautiful and touching...

The best movie I ever watched

Really good just not the best movie of the year!

Beautifully crafted and emotionally lovely

2 Inglourious Basterds

An amazing film with fantastic acting and story, but I think this list is faulty. New Moon shouldn't be on it let alone T2 on the top. This, Avatar and District 9 have a shot at it for me, but this one really does me in, it's a near perfect film.

Best of 2009 and one of the all time best. Tarantino's best tied with Pulp Fiction. A must watch for any critic and movie fanatic like myself, not to mention great performances from Brad Pitt, and Christoph Waltz - Beatlesboy9

Beautifully done, Great acting from Chritoph Waltz and Brad Pitt - roblist

Global: $2,782,275,172. This movie brought us new CGI graphics. Definitely the best. This movie is one of the most grossing (box office hit) of all time

This movie is actually great it should be #1

I loved Up but Avatar is better. There and better casting
And was the highest grossing movie of all time.

One of the most visual 3D films ever made

4 Zombieland

This should be in the top 10.. This movie was so hilarious.. I couldn't stop laughing the whole movie

5 The Hangover

My fav movie ever, so funny and random, avatar is boring. - dragon13304

One among the few comedy films that was perfectly made.
Hangover=100% entertainment guarenteed

6 Star Trek

This movie is Awesome! I've seen Avatar and it was good but this is even better. Great cast, great special effects, great sound, great everything. Just an awesome movie.

7 District 9
8 Coraline

It scared me

9 The Blind Side
10 Watchmen

Amazing movie. Real visual and cinematographic masterpiece, great sound, effects and acting, masterpiece script, based on a masterpiece graphic novel. 9,5/10

k yes it might have been abit long and confusing... but cmon it was like one of the best movies

The best movie of the year Transformers was good, Up was good too but far from deserving top spot!

I'm still too yound to watch Watchmen, looks good

The Contenders

11 Fantastic Mr. Fox

This is awesome

12 Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen

This movie isn't overrated, is OVERHATED, I mean well, we got explosions and tits, but hey, some jokes are funny, not? And the efects and action are very good, I don't know this movie probably been in 6 or 5 position

Movie is stupid

The movie's not that bad actually. It doesn't have to be accurate to the G1 series. It's just that movies like this one are only a hit and miss. Honestly.

Loved it and please stop hating Michael Bay just please!

13 The Hurt Locker

The Hurt Locker is an awesom movie it deserve to be at last in top 10

10000000000 times better than avatar - GjOnGji

Really better than the other movies of the list

One of the most underrated films that I seen

More underrated than another movie in 2009 my god

14 The Proposal
15 Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

I am surprised to fine this film so low, I didn't expect it to be number one but at least in the top 10! - SidneyHando

This movie was exciting. Some people blame the romance but it doesn't bother me. The sad thing though is that dumbledore died.

This is best movie of 2009 even better than up

16 Moon

Easily the greatest film of the year, and one of the greatest sci-fi films ever. Pays homage to movies like 2001, but still remains interesting and very psychological.

17 Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs
18 Sherlock Holmes

Very underrated

Robert Downey Jr took on the role of the infamous detective with swagger that rivals Captain Jack.

19 Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs
20 Julie & Julia
21 The Princess and the Frog
22 (500) Days of Summer
23 Terminator Salvation
24 Year One
25 X-Men Origins: Wolverine
26 2012

I watched this movie in science class - Ajkloth

27 G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra
28 Jennifer's Body
29 Hachi: a Dog's Tale

How is this lower than X-Men Origins: Wolverine? - 445956

One of the BEST movies of 2009. Really. The story is simple, and it is based on a real story. Rarely, movies like that are good. But is IS good. The acting, the music, and of course: Hachi! For a dog, he did a splendid job. Most dogs kinda goof off, but this dog did not. It gets a solid 8.5, because I can see some flaws. The end shows colors, while it is the dream of Hachi, but dogs cannot see colors. That was a example; it is a nitpick, it is not why the 1.5 points are gone! Still, I LOVE this movie. It should be in the top 10.

Sorry for making this long ^3^ - PugLlama

30 Saw VI
31 Up In the Air
32 Night at the Museum 2: Battle of the Smithsonian


33 Mr. Nobody

One of my all time favorite movies.

44 Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel
45 Bruno
46 The Haunting in Connecticut
47 Paranormal Activity

The scariest piece of work ever done in cinema history. The movie maintains a lot of realism!

No horror film has shocked me like this has.

Scary, freaky and terrifying. - IceCream

48 St Trinian's 2: The Legend of Fritton's Gold

What an ensemble this has; Rupert Everett, Colin Firth, David Tennant, Sarah Harding, Gemma Arteton and Ricky Wilson among others.
