5. Burn After Reading
4. The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
2. The Dark Knight
1. Slumdog Millionaire
Honorable Mentions: Milk, Zack and Miri Make a Porno, Tropic Thunder
Yet to see: Rachel Getting Married, The Wrestler, Revolutionary Road, Doubt, and some documentaries.
But honestly, past the number 2, there weren’t great movies as there were last year. The Curious Case of Benjamin Button is a film I got a giant problem with: closing in on a 3 hour time frame with pointless and flow-breaking scenes. That being said, numbers 1 and 2 are absolutely phenomenal. I guess the point I’m trying to make is that there’s a huge gap between number 2 and 3.
