You can find it on Netflix instant if your curious though. Some of these films may be considered films from 2008, but thanks to the area I live in their was no way for me to see them in 2008 unless I wanted to drive into Boston.

I think 2009 was kind of a sub par year in movies and maybe thats why Fox sits at #1. It was however the most visually interesting film that did not require a set of plastic glasses, the funniest film without Mike Tyson, and at times was quite moving. Maybe the year outside of the movie theater was so depressing in the world it took an animated fox for me to get truly excited about something for this list. Or maybe its just a damned good movie. Either way its worth watching the movie that was robbed of the annual Pixar award at this year’s Oscars.

Enjoy
