Keith...Amarcord... how can that count?

My humble list:

Il Divo
Sita Sings The Blues
Up
The Garden
The Brothers Bloom
Coraline 3D
Monsters Vs Aliens 3D
He's Just Not That Into You
Taken
Night at the Museum 2: Battle of the Smithsonian
How I Killed Mumblecore

and a handful of shorts and documentaries that may or may not count as 2009 movies, but probably don't...
