So these are the movies I’ve seen since January 2008, and I find I don’t have much of anything to say about them. There were highlights, of course — There Will Be Blood, The Dark Knight, The Visitor, Milk — and lowlights — Cloverfield, Jumper, Flightplan, Wanted. But most were just movies I saw, some good and some not so good. I could probably find something to say about any one of them, if you’re curious, but none move me to write about them in any depth like I did last year. Maybe that’s because I saw fewer new movies in ’08 — 14 in theaters, as opposed to last year’s 27 — or maybe it wasn’t as great a year for film.
I don’t know that that’s the case, though, because there’s plenty that was released this year that I hope I’ll get to see next year.
