Temporal Top Ten – 2008


2008top ten

Number of movies seen from this year – 141
Number of movies reviewed – 57 (including 5 Encore Reviews)

 

2008 was a very interesting year for me on movies.

There were few movies that I can claim that ‘blew my mind’ (besides my #1 obviously), but there were so many movies that I found enjoyable to watch.

This year, for me at least my #1 pick was a complete no-brainer to decide, but I truthfully had a more difficult time arranging my #2-5 picks. They all have lots of merit and I enjoyed all 4 of them on numerous occasions, but ultimately I had to decide which ones were even slightly better than the other ones.

Notably missing from this list is the eventual Oscar Best Picture Winner, Slumdog Millionaire which I didn’t particularly like and felt it was highly overated.

What does appear tho is the eventually winner of ’09 because it was originally released in 08 and is therefore for my purposes part of 08.

UPDATE 18 Oct 2015 – I have added a new film as my #2 pick, thus bumping all the rest down one notch, my previous #10 is now an honorable mention

  1. Haven’t seen all, but some great choices here. This is actually the most represented year on my list. I liked Slumdog Millionaire, but I agree it was overrated and not necessarily Best Picture. I found the music especially irritating.
    Prince Caspian and The Boy in the Striped Pajamas are also among my favorites. 🙂
