2009: The Year in Film Ranked (U.S. Theatrical) by John Ryan

A few great movies, and a bunch of good ones.

There have definitely been worse years.

The only 2 not in the database are My Bloody Valentine 3D and Friday the 13th.
They’d be at the very bottom anyway.

I know it might seem weird that I have things like Up in the Air and The Limits of Control so near the bottom with other commercial Hollywood dreck, but I honestly didn’t care for these movies. I also generally try not to see things that look like they’ll be commercial Hollywood dreck, but sometimes I just can’t avoid things like Wolverine.
