I don't know if I watched enough current movies this year to give you a Top 10, but I will say that I loved The Dark Knight and was thoroughly disappointed (almost heartbroken) by Indy 4 and The X-Files 2.

I've only seen two 2008 films, so my list reads:

1. Iron Man
2. Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

I may be able to add to that list by the end of the year!

I've seen a lot of films I wanted to see this year but I don't rate them all. My favourites were:

Wall-E, Juno, Cloverfield, Tropic Thunder and Iron Man. I'm so mainstream.

My film viewing has really taken a hit over the last couple of years, mainly due to two or three annoying visits to the cinema where I had the misfortune to be sat near complete arseholes who should really have gone to the pub for a chat rather than the cinema.

I still enjoy going to the cinema and the spectacle of seeing a film on the big screen, but I now prefer watching films in the comfort of my own home - sadly, going by the above list, I don't seem to be able to get around to doing a lot of that!

1) There will be Blood
2) The Dark Knight
3) In Bruges
4) Cloverfield
5) Lars and the Real Girl

6) Son of Rambow
7) The Mist
8) Iron Man
9) Tropic Thunder
10) The Diving Bell and the Butterfly



Honorable Mentions: Sweeney Todd, 27 Dresses, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Be Kind Rewind

I was pretty indifferent to No Country for Old Men and Juno , some were just OK (Indy IV) and others were completely bizarre (Doomsday).

I'm really looking forward to 'The Curious Case of Benjamin Button'

The non 2008 release I enjoyed most this year was definitely Once, which, in contrast to its title, I've seen at least 6 times this year.

After we've got a decent shortlist going (based on the most frequently mentioned 2008 UK releases), I'll get our annual poll going.

That looks so bloody creepy I think I'm a bit scared of it.

I'd like to mention that Redbelt only makes my top ten by default, it's an extremely flawed film but I like it. I really hope The Wrestler knocks it out.

Isn't Lars & the Real Girl from 2007?

In no particular order:

In Bruges
Lust, Caution
Man on Wire
The Dark Knight
Cloverfield
Wall-E
There Will Be Blood
Iron Man
Tropic Thunder
Quantum of Solace

Some non-2008 releases I enjoyed are Lars & the Real Girl, The Nines, and Persepolis.

edit: Actually, it looks like TWBB was 2007 too.

I thought Lust, Caution was 2007 as well, I was quite surprised to find out it was released over here in January, it seems to have been around for longer than that.

You're right; it was a 2007 release over here. Doesn't seem like it was that long ago.
