Whilst we may have hung the podcast mic up until the new year, it would be wrong to leave you with so much spare time and nothing to occupy it with, and so as is traditional at this time of year, we’ve asked some friends to join us over the next week or so in the impossible task of narrowing down and ranking the films we’ve seen in ’09.

First to step up to the plate is long time DN friend and twice past guest (DN028 & Storm) Kurtis Hough, who’s been sharing his lists with us since we started posting them. Kurt would like me to point out that the following is very much provisional until he’s had a chance to catch up with his ‘must see’ films, so don’t be surprised by any future tweaks.

1. Inglourious BasterdsQuentin Tarantino

2. CoralineHenry Selick

3. The Song of SparrowsMajid Majidi

4. Where the Wild Things AreSpike Jonze
