Re: Your Top 10 Films of 2008

I haven't seen most of the Oscar-bait stuff that only gets limited release in December yet, so mine is seriously incomplete. The Dark Knight and WALL-E would definitely be in the top 5; Iron Man and The Duchess would also be on the top 10.

Awesome, awesome flick. Beautifully shot, really well written, great acting from the young leads. Great denouement.
Totally agree; saw it last night.

There's definitely a place for it in my top 10 of the year.

Re: Your Top 10 Films of 2008

1) The Dark Knight
2) Be Kind Rewind
3) Wall-E
4) Tropic Thunder
5) Burn After Reading
6) Iron Man
7) The Bank Job
8) Quantum of Solace
9) Indiana Jones &tKotCS
10) The Duchess

Uhhh.....there are only another 3-4 2008 releases beyond these ten that I've seen, and even a couple of the ones I've listed were viewed on an airplane, in which case I wasn't really seeking the movie out. Most of the movies I've watched within the last year were on DVD, and more than a few years old. I don't watch that many current movies anymore.

I am interested in seeing "Let the Right One In" though. But I have no idea if/when that's ever going to make its way to Australia.

Potentially worthwhile films I didn't see:

Appaloosa
You didn't miss out. "Appaloosa" was a let down. Rene Zellwegger's pinchy faced posturings, parts that drag on too much and anti-climatic face-offs...subpar at best. The best thing I can say was that set designs/locations were good.
