The Best of ’08

My blogging dedication has been severely lacking in the last month.  I blame this on a plethora of things, most recently: the lack of internet at home, a herniated disc in my back, and the drugs that cloud my mind but block the pain.  These things are not so bitchin’, but the following movies are.  Even though it’s a little late, here’s my top ten list of 2008.  Although the validity of this list is a little questionable since I haven’t yet had the opportunity to see movies like Revolutionary Road or Gran Torino.  Damn you, Salt Lake City.  Here they are, in no particular order:

Slumdog Millionaire

Milk

Happy-Go-Lucky

Girl Cut in Two

In Bruges

The Counterfeiters

The Fall

Paranoid Park

Reprise

Vicky Cristina Barcelona

I’ll be announcing a Lit Flicks winner within the next few days.  Happy New Year.

    So, I’ve officially seen NONE of those movies. In fact, I was pretty sure that there were multiple Slumdog Millionaires. Whatever.

    Oh yeah. What about Ballast? I’m pretty sure that was the best movie I saw last year.

    I’m seriously slacking on my movie watching. I haven’t seen any of these yet. I have In Bruges up next on my Netflix so I’ll let you know what I think. Don’t bother with Mamma Mia if you haven’t seen it. It was pretty cheesy (unless of course you like that sort of thing).

    Hope your back feels better soon. :)

    I know your real list includes Forgetting Sarah Marshall and Pineapple Express, but at least you fronted a high brow well respected list that can fool everyone else.

    Jokes.

    Hey Blake, I have a best of 2008 list too. I share two favorites with you, Slumdog and Vicky Christina. I too live in a town where I can’t see all the new movies, so that’s a drag and surely limits my list.
    I am going to check out some of the movies that you put down that I haven’t seen.

    In Bruges is the only one I’ve seen. and probably the only available on DVD? Ok, I’ll do my own research and hop on over to netflix…

    Hope you get to feeling better. Back pain sucks.
