EW’S BEST & WORST FILMS OF 2008

I can not release a proper TOP 10 until well into January. At least.

I want to make sure that I have everything in place and that I have seen all of the essential movies for 2008. That’s going to take time and I won’t be sure until after the OSCAR nominations come out.

But certainly film critics (both on the net and off) are announcing their choices – freely and completely – at this time of year.

Which brings me to one of my treasured resources, EW.

Their film critics, LISA SCHWARZBAUM and OWEN GLEIBERMAN, have listed their respective TOP 10s (along with the flicks that didn’t float their boats) complete with photo galleries.

I will, as always, place my choices in bold.

9. MAN ON WIRE
8. HAPPY GO LUCKY

  1. another list that has me saying ‘i’m not a film fan’. proclaiming ‘guess i can’t count myself as a film fan.’ seriously, this has got to end. mainstream/critical acclaimed lists. i think i hate them both. and you know why i hate them ??? because they make me hate them.

    and typing on the net/ in computer lounging clothes makes it sooo strong! 🙂

  2. I adore you, my precious little glimster – and you’re as predictable as the sun coming up.

    Computer lounging clothes and all…

    Hah hah…
