What I’m Watching: 2008 in Review

Similar to yesterday’s post of books I read in 2008, here’s the movies I saw, in the order I saw them. This list also includes re-viewings, and short films (marked with an asterisk). I saw more movies than read books, which is something that disturbs me on a fundamental level, but I suppose is inevitable considering the time investment involved in each activity.

Ah, whatever. Here’s what I watched last year. You’ll no doubt be able to tell when the list reaches the months of October and December:

    For clarification’s sake sir, are you judging the Cinematic Titanic/Rifftrax/MST3k movies as just the movies or are you including the riffing in the grade as well?

    The grade is for the movie only. I should include a riffgrade too, now that I think about it.
