  1. Jack Bickle says:

    London To Brighton owns Cassandra’s Dream. Glad you liked My Blueberry Nights, too!

  2. forizzer69 says:

    Yo guy, London to Brighton was pretty lame. It was interesting enough, but I felt pretty letdown when it ended. Like I was with Red Road. Gosh.

    Hey, did you love Strathairn?

  3. Freak says:

    Er, I’m not sure if you can claim a ’01 listed film on imdb as an ’08 film.

    Stuff and Dough.

  4. Hmm. Interesting list. I’m seeing ‘Funny Games’ soon enough, but I’m still undecided on ‘Shine a Light’. I love The Rollings Stones and Martin Scorsese, but no one wants to go with me…, do you think I should go anyway?

  5. bill7576c says:

    I really, really envy you for seeing Towelhead and Snow Angels. :)
    I actuully think I liked Speed Racer more than Iron Man. It’s a movie that grew on me a lot (and I already loved it when I saw it).

  6. Mindy_Winslet says:

    I haven’t seen too much this year so I can’t say too much about your ratings.

    I recommend seeing Roman De Gare. It’s a pretty entertaining French film. It’s nothing amazing, but I think you’d like it.

  7. m_daniari says:

    Glad to see you liked Redbelt… It’s already underrated. And Towelhead already looks like a film I’m gonna enjoy, and it’s also nice to see that somebody else enjoyed The Happening…

    Is Street Kings worth it btw? How is Laurie?

  8. Jack Bickle says:

    Did I Love Strathairn? I think the question should be who *didn’t* love Strathairn. He was majestic!

    I never got round to seeing Red Road and I don’t really have any interest in it anymore. But I really liked London To Brighton, it’s still only a 7/10 for me, but it was the kind of gritty cinema Britain should do more of as they ‘we’ do it so succesfully.

  9. Paula says:

    What?

    Why such a low rating on Then She Found Me? Of course I’ve never seen it, but I’m curious.

    Glad you liked Snow Angels, though.

  10. forizzer69 says:

    Paula: The movie is just horrible. It’s very difficult to watch all the way through; the acting is horrible (Bette was good, though) and the movie just has one of the worst endings ever.

    Jack: Well, Red Road is better – it, too, is ‘gritty’ British cinema. The entire cast was great in it, so check that out for Dickie alone.

    M-man! : Laurie was really good. Street Kings is one of the best action/crime movies of the past couple of years – a lot of fun and really good, too. See it for sure. I’m also glad you enjoyed The Happening and Redbelt! I’m sure you’ll like Towelhead.

    Mindy! : I almost saw that one day when I was downtown. To be honest, I’m not too interested in it, but I’ll most likely check it out.

    Bill: I totally know how you feel. Every time I think about Speed Racer I get a warm feeling inside of me. I think I love it a lot more than my rating indicates. I’ma bump it to an 8 asap. And dude, Snow Angels is out in a few weeks, so yay!

    Scarlett: Do you love The Rolling Stones? Because about 97% of the movie is dedicated to the concert, with a few minutes of stock footage here and there. IF you love them, see it at no cost. If not… well, either/or. Oh and the film is shot by some of the best cinematographers to live. Check it out on IMDb – the camera operators. That might push you to see it.

    F-r-e-a-k: It got it’s first NY, NY release in May, so I’m putting it 2008 – it’s just how I do.

  11. holeigh_annie says:

    Hey you!

    I have to give Indiana Jones an 8 just because I love the franchise so much. Or maybe 7.5 at least.

    And you’re *really* making me want to see In Bruges. I thought it looked interesting before, but if you liked it that much… :)

  12. forizzer69 says:

    Oh, I saw it again! It’s still as good. Hilarious and really sad, too. You should love it. Everyone should!

  13. Matt_the_Scot says:

    Can’t wait to see Nothing is Private.

  14. forizzer69 says:

    Me neither. It’s been so long since I’ve seen it… :(

  15. Lily Collette says:

    I’m delighted to see that you loved The Man from London! I saw it a while back at a film festival and it was brilliant. London To Brighton and In Bruges were also stellar…..I wasn’t very fond of Funny Games – I prefer the original film, by far.

    I want to see Redbelt eventually =)

  16. ME-KYAL says:

    Uh… I’ve seen so few 2008 movies and about the 80% of your current list I’m sure I’ll never even bother to see so I doubt I have anything clever to say . =( But I’ll be watching In Bruges very soon I hope! Ralph Fiennes FTW w00t!!!

  17. Allie says:

    Uh…I’m not quite sure what to say.

    Definitely, Maybe is totally underrated. Such a sweet little film.

  18. Doc_AIDS says:

    #38. [rec] *** 80%

    EWWW…

    Otherwise wow, you’re already over 100 and I haven;t passed 50

  19. forizzer69 says:

    Yeah… [rec] seems awfully high. Hmm.

  20. daniari says:

    Dude, I wanna see The Wrestler.

  21. Sonia says:

    Just so you know guy, The Happening sucked ass. :P

  22. forizzer69 says:

    Just so you know, you’re a fail boat.

  23. Aaronz says:

    I’m glad that Mister Lonely is still in your top ten of the year.

    I’ll probably be using your list as a guideline of what to see next.

    Thnx. :P

  24. filmfan says:

    it’s great that you love “Blindness”. In my opinion it’s the most underrated movie of last year.
