I'm on a big animation kick since Kung Fu Panda hit the top of my best films of the year list. Let me just say that Kung Fu Panda was one of the best-laugh-out-loud films of the year. Hitting under 100 minutes, featuring my faves Seth Rogen and David Cross and amazing animation - lets just say it was orsum (is there much more to say on "kids film" anyway?).

Best Films of This Year - No Country For Old Men, Kung Fu Panda, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Shotgun Stories, The Diving Bell and the Butterfly, The Orphanage, The Savages, Step Up 2 the Streets, Pineapple Express,

Worst Films of This Year - Paranoid Park, Juno, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, Baby Mama, Flight of the Red Balloon, Before the Devil Knows You’re Dead, Sex and the City: The Movie, Fools Gold, Jumper, I'm not there, 2 Days in Paris, We own the night, Margot at the Wedding, Inside Paris, 3:10 to Yuma,

Can't Wait! - WALL-E, Cassandra's Dream, Son of Rambow, Dark Knight, Otto, Where the Wild Things Are, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Zack and Miri Make a Porno, An Old Mistress, Boarding Gate, Love Songs,Tropic Thunder, Stepbrothers, Space Chimps, I Want Someone to Eat Cheese With, Dark Knight,

PS There were about 100 meh films in here like Mrs Pettigrew Lives For A Day, Hancock, Get Smart, Be Kind Rewind, The Other Boleyn Girl, You Don't Mess With The Zohan, Semi Pro, There Will Be Blood (despite the fabulous performance of Daniel Day Lewis), Iron Man, Lust, Caution, Sweeney Todd: the Demon Barber of Fleet Street etc

PPS I also saw a bunch of these films last year at MIFF so I'm not going to count them either.
