20 Best Films I Saw In 2008

Filed under: film

I’m excluding 2008 releases because they will show up on my top ten, probably in a few months, and 2007 releases because they were on my top ten of 2007.  I didn’t keep track of all the films I watched this year, so this is based on a combination of my Netflix history and memory.  It’s possible some slipped through the cracks.  They are listed in alphabetical order.  Format stolen from Rouge.

Awesomesauce, all of these that I’ve seen are fantastic. The one with the boobies is on my list as well 😀

Our lists share Baby Doll, Cluny Brown and the aforementioned “one with the boobies”. I approve.

Awesome list, so awesome. I love a lot of these, I’m sure you know. I really want to see Miracle at Morgan’s Creek and the Major and the Minor.
