2008 in Cinema, Literature
Any recommendations, lists, gripes etc. with 2008's selection of movies, books (fiction and non fiction), etc.?
Having yet to see Milk, The Wrestler, Gran Torino, and Revolutionary Road, I am nevertheless rating Slumdog Millionaire as my top movie of 08. Doubt is also very good. Frost/Nixon was compelling but also troubling, due to its wanton disregard of the actual facts. The Visitor was my favorite movie from the first half of the year. Well, that and the Dark Knight.
I am one of the few who wasn't wowed by Wall-E. I don't know what it was about it, but I found it to be a solid but unspectacular film.
