I'd give 2009 at the movies a B overall, and that ain't bad it is, in fact, about as good as it gets. It's true that I found only nine straight-A's when I looked back through my movie notebook (No. 10 on this list was an A–), but there wasn't a single F, and that's a first in my years as an EW columnist. Either I chose more wisely or the quality was better than last year's B–. I prefer to believe the latter, though there were a few disappointments along the way; the trudging Revolutionary Road was the worst of them. With that said, my list of the 10 best follows.
