Top Ten Films in 2008

Almost half of January is gone, even the Golden Globe is over. I finally get a chance to take a moment to look back the films I watched in 2008 .

In 2008, I watched a total of 260 feature films.

As always, because it has become very difficult to classify which year a movie should belong to, I put together my top-ten films among those I saw in 2008.
