2009 Movies

I have been holding off on posting my favorite performances of the year. The reason for this is that I still have 37 movies on my list that I want to see before I close 2009 down. That is obviously not going to happen. Particularly because school has started again and I am busy reading, teaching, and working on shows. But I did want to post the list of the 37 films I am eventually planning on seeing in addition to the ones on the list to the left. This list will, of course, be added to when the Oscar nominations come out on 2002 and I am required to see things like The Blind Side. I am posting the list, though, so that you can tell me if there is anything I have left off, anything I haven't seen that I really ought to see. The films are, in alphabetical order:
