My Favorite Movies of 2009

Here are my favorite movies of the year, starting with my most favorite by far, In The Loop.

This movie is a sort of spin off from the UK Comedy Series The Thick of It. It features many of the same actors and some of the same Characters (most notably, Malcolm Tucker, the foul-mouthed spin doctor for Downing Street). It was hands down the funniest, smartest movie I saw all year.
