My grandfather returns with his top 10 of 2009!

Yes, he was popular last year with his thoughts on the Oscar race, and he's returning now to put out his top 10 of the year. In case anyone forgot, he's now 76 and used to work in the movie industry, so he sort of works as a stand-in for the average Academy member. Here's how 2009 looked for him:

1. Avatar

2. The Hurt Locker

3. Up in the Air

4. Inglourious Basterds

5. Up

6. Pirate Radio

7. (500) Days of Summer

8. The Hangover

9. The Blind Side

10. Whip It



  1. For comparison, here's his Bottom 10 of the year:

    1. Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen
    2. New Moon
    3. Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian
    4. The Informers
    5. Land of the Lost
    6. Bruno
    7. Halloween II
    8. Old Dogs
    9. Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans
    10. Away We Go

  2. "Land of The Lost" haha. Will Ferrel always squeezes a few laughs out of me....even when the movie as a whole suffers.

  3. I thought it was pretty dreadful too, and I like Ferrell more than he does.
