What do you guys think?? I have to set a little side note about this list, as I mentioned above, I haven't gotten a chance, and most of the people in the country haven't had a chance to see many of these films, so here are a few of the films I have yet to see...My top 5 regrets of 2008

5. The Reader
4. Happy Go Lucky
3. Let the Right One In
2. Revolutionary Road
1. The Wrestler

So in my constant attempt to give you all as much content as possible, I will be over the next week giving you all my year end wrap up. Tomorrow will be my Most Anticipated of '09, Thursday will be a review of Ben Button and my ranking of EVERY film I've seen in '08, and then Friday will be my year end awards, with a review, most likely, of Doubt.

Come back later for all of that and maybe some news...

Go see something good!
