The Best and Worst Films of 2009

The biggest complaint I could have about the year 2009 is the lack of dramas. This seems to be an occurrence of the past years. But in their absence other genres have popped up to take away the attention. Animation, Fantasy, Action, Sci-fi, all these genres that you never usually see as the best films of the year are on my list. This year had in general a good mix of films, with the occasional though rotten apple.

P.S. This an ever-evolving list. I haven't seen all the films of 2015 and there are many more I still wish to see. So even if some are not on the list, that doesn't mean they won't be later or that they don't deserve to be.
