Hello people, and welcome to our rundown of the year's best and worst films. We tried to come up with a rough approximation of our overall site top ten, as follows. Anything out in a U.K. cinema in 2009 is fair game.

Unfortunately this criteria excluded the superb Mary and Max, but if that ever appears near you please do watch it.

In time honoured reverse order, the gestalt theOneliner.com list o'topfilms is:

10. The Damned United
9. Looking For Eric
8. Moon
7. The Wrestler
6. The Hurt Locker
5. Coraline
4. Watchmen
3. Up
2. Star Trek
1. In The Loop

Not a bad bunch, I'm sure you'll agree, an we also list a good number of excellent films that could just as easily be up there as well.

The year's poorest efforts include Antichrist, Avatar and the inimitable Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus.

For those interested, here's our individual lists:
