top 5...

1. quantum of solice
2. let the right one in
3. the dark knight
4. the wrestler
5. wall-e

worst: tropic thunder

that's a fantastic top 5, but all in all im in agreeance that 2008 was weak. even though i haven't seen synecdoche, milk or most other movies mentioned in this thread...

^lol.

Personally, I thought Blindness was one of the WORST movies I've seen all year. Oh, god, it was bad. It's worth a watch just for the lulz.
Let's go to a motel. We don't have to do anything -- we could just swim.

top ten 2008

I like your list, specially 1-4 BUT the exclusion of Let the Right One In worries me, don't know if you saw it, if so, why didn't make the final cut? if you haven't seen it you need to stop doing whatever you're doing and run to watch it NOW..

So about the list, I also like that you included Blindness which I thought was great, at moments it was really irritating to watch, but the end result was great; the inclusion of Benjamin makes me happy as I loved that too, i can see its flaws in the script or whatever many ppl didn't like but I was really into it the whole time, and on a technical level it was astonishing.

Didn't resonate with me as much as these did. It would probably make my Top Fifteen, though.

maybe you would have liked wendy and lucy better if it posed such deep philosophical questions about human nature as what would you do if you were on a ferry and you had like this bomb detonator that would totally blow up this other ferry, but the thing is, that other ferry (carrying a bunch of convicts, by the way) ALSO had a detonator for YOUR boat and you're like man, they're convicts they deserve to die, why should all these good people have to die when a boat of convicts (ps, zeus from no holds barred is on that shit) is right over there and then you're like man, that's the fucked up part about the joker, some men just like to watch the world burn. DEEP.
