The Best of 2009

2009 gets a bit short-changed with everyone focussing on their “best of the decade” lists, but these are my picks for the best movies and albums of 2009. I haven’t heard nearly as many albums as I’d like to, and it’ll probably take me until half way through ’10 to catch up on all of the movies that I want to see from last year on DVD. But from what I’ve seen/heard, here are my lists:

Favourite Movies of 2009

  1. (500) Days of Summer
  2. Where the Wild Things Are
  3. Adventureland

  8. I Love You, Man
  9. Away We Go
  10. The Princess and the Frog
