2008 movies of the year

During the course of the year, I watched 18 movies released in 2008. Here’s my list, ranked least to most favorite. Here’s my 2006 recap; I did not make a list in 2007.

I came up with this list in a hindsight view looking back on the year. To see how this list compares to my immediate post-viewing thoughts, you can compare this list to my IMDB ‘Recently Seen’ movies list, where I kept a log of movies as I watched them and ranked them within a day or so of the first viewing.

LEAST FAVORITES:

18. Cloverfield
17. Definitely Maybe
16. Semi-Pro
15. Space Chimps
14. Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay

12. Be Kind Rewind (Top Drama)
