My Top Ten Films of 2009

Yes, it has been over three months since my last entry. I won't even begin to explain why, but back with a vengeance are more late write-ups about last year. So here we go... my top ten films of 2009:

I want to see 'An Education' the most out of all of these I have not yet seen. And then '500 Days'. I miss being able to go to the movies on a whim! :)

An Education at #1? I whole-heartedly approve...I spent three posts gushing over it. So unprofessional of me :)

Welcome back.

Aww.. Andrew, as much as I would've loved to place 'An Education' at #1, it's actually at #2. But I'll have you know, top three this year was pretty much interchangeable.
