As we here at Cinematical have kept busy pumping out our Best of the Decade lists, as well as our unique, exotic and random end-of-the-year lists, our pals over at Moviefone locked themselves in a room and slaved over a list of what they deem to be the best 50 films of 2009. Looking over the list there aren't a whole ton of surprises, though I give credit to the person (or persons) who more than likely fought hard to get World's Greatest Dadon that list at number 38. You are a hero in my book.

Honestly, when I look at their top 10, I wouldn't mind it at all if these were the 10 films duking it out in the Best Picture category at the next Oscar ceremony. Of course there's no way in hell films like The Hangover will find their way onto that nomination list, but you never know. Their top 10 is as follows:

10. The Hangover
9. Precious
8. Star Trek
7. An Education
6. The Fantastic Mr. Fox
5. Avatar
4. The Hurt Locker
3. Inglourious Basterds
2. Up
1. Up in the Air

Definitely a solid top ten, and one that leaps across genres in an attempt to sweep up the best 2009 had to offer. Other surprises (in my opinion) include the raunchy Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans, the little-seen indie Sugar, the retro coming-of-age dramedy Adventureland and the horror-comedy Zombieland.

Check out the entire list over at Moviefone and let us (and them) know what they got right and wrong.
