Roger Ebert’s best movies of 2009

Since Moses brought the tablets down from the mountain, lists have come in 10s - not that we couldn't have done with several more commandments. Who says a year has 10 best films, anyway? Nobody but readers, editors and most other movie critics. There was hell to pay last year when I published my list of 20 best. You'd have thought I belched at a funeral. So on this list I have devoutly limited myself to exactly 10 films. On each of two lists.

Review: 'Up in the Air'

Ryan Bingham is the Organization Man for the 2000s. He never comes to the office. Technically, he doesn't have an office; he has an address where his employer has an office. His life is devoted to visiting other people's offices and firing them. "Up in the Air" takes the trust people once had in their jobs and pulls out the rug. It is a film for this time.

Review: 'Sherlock Holmes'

The less I thought about Sherlock Holmes, the more I liked "Sherlock Holmes." Yet another classic hero has been fed into the f/x mill, emerging as a modern superman. Guy Ritchie's film is filled with sensational sights, over-the-top characters and a desperate struggle atop Tower Bridge, which is still under construction. It's likely to be enjoyed by today's action fans. But block bookings are not likely from the Baker Street Irregulars.

Senate OK's health care bill in 60-39 vote

WASHINGTON (AP) - In an epic struggle settled at dawn, the Democratic-controlled Senate passed health care legislation Thursday, a triumph for President Barack Obama that clears the way for compromise talks with the House on a bill to reduce the ranks of the uninsured and rein in the insurance industry.

The vote was 60-39, strictly along party lines, one day after Democrats succeeded in crushing a filibuster by Republicans eager - yet unable - to inflict a year-end political defeat on the White House.
