James Berardinelli puts out his top 10 of 2009

He's one of the internet's most respected film critics (his site, Reelviews, is a great resource, and even Roger Ebert is a fan), and now he's chimed in with his top 10 films, which go as follows:

1. Avatar
2. Inglourious Basterds
3. Up in the Air
4. Adventureland
5. The Hurt Locker
6. (500) Days of Summer
7. District 9
8. Precious
9. An Education
10. A Serious Man
Honorable mentions: Brothers, In the Loop, Moon, and Sin Nombre

-Thoughts on his list?


  1. Great list, except for selection of Avatar as the best movie of year. Really, that was the best movie he saw?

  2. He's seen a lot. It's not my favorite, but a lot of people love it...

  3. I love this list. Not necessarily the right order but definitely the right films.
