Moon, directed by Duncan Jones, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2009 while Dewey by Vicki Myron with Bret Witter was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Secret Millionaire. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Cursed Mountain or Anno: Create a New World.
