Following is the list of 2008 movies I've seen so far, arranged from my favorite to my least favorite. I would say I was totally enthusiastic about the Top 7, I liked the next 3 and the rest were mixed. Wow, I really didn't see that many movies I loved this year! Feel free to chime in with your thoughts on any of the movies I've seen or the ones I have yet to see (which I list at the end):
Slumdog Millionaire: Heart-breaking and masterful.
Let The Right One In: Beautiful, scary and unexpected.
In 2007, Premiere Magazine offered its 20 Most Overrated Movies Of All Time list, with the Oscar-winning Sam Mendes drama American Beauty (1998) at the top. (Then Premiere died, so go figure.) Probably it deserves a spot on the list, if not at #1, but I kind of suspect his latest—the searing drama Revolutionary Road starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet—is likely to earn a place on some sort of Underrated Movies list thanks to its highly stylized feel and relentlessly bleak tone. I hope I'm wrong, because I loved this unique, hypnotic cautionary tale.
