Kind of an odd year in that there weren't a lot of movies that i hated, and there weren't a lot of movies that really wowed me. Even my top 10 films are full of weaknesses, and it was usually some bit of emotional pay off that really sold them on me. Here's to hoping that 2010 is a stronger year.

The Ranking:
25. World's Best Dad
24. The Orphan
23. Crank: High Voltage
22. Coraline
21. The Girlfriend Experience
20. (500) Days Of Summer
19. Zombieland
18. The Limits Of Control
17. Star Trek
