I'll play along on this one.  

The first three movies I saw this year in theaters were late 2008 releases...

Day the Earth Stood Still (C)
Slumdog Millionaire (A-)
The Wrestler (A)

The rest are 2009, and I'll try to keep them in ranked order from favorite to least... I expect lots of cringes, if not someone wishing to do bodily harm to me for these rankings :)

Up x2 (A+)
Moon x2 (A+)
Star Trek x2 (A)
The Hurt Locker (A)
District 9 (A)
2012 (A)
Toy Story 3D Double Feature (A)
Crank: High Voltage (A: most fun I've had in a theater in years)
Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs (A-)
Inglourious Basterds (A-)
Knowing (A-: shut up!  I really enjoyed this one way more than I expected)
The Hangover (A-)
Taken (B+)
This Is It (B+)
Coraline (B+)
A Serious Man (B)
Zombieland (B)
Watchmen (B)
Where the Wild Things Are (B)
Men Who Stare At Goats (B)
Fanboys (B)
The Informant (B-)
In The Loop (B-)
9 (B-)
Pandorum (C+)
Monsters vs Aliens (C+)
Taking of Pelham 123 (C)
Public Enemies (C-)
Wolverine (D+)
GI Joe - The Rise of Cobra (D)
Terminator: Salvation (D-)
Transformers 2 (Sub F- if such a grade exists)

Movies I wanted to see, but have either missed and / or haven't come to Columbus yet: The Brothers Bloom, Anvil, It Might Get Loud.

Nice. Do you ever give out an A or A+? What's your lowest ever grade?

Don't think I've ever given an A+. Anything in my top 25 probably gets an A. A few films have received a grade of F. Gladiator and Vanilla Sky for sure.
