Celebration of 2008 Recap: We Bought a Blog’s Top 10 of 2008

Alright, it’s that time. We covered a lot of our favorite movies from 2008. Now it’s time for us to unveil what we think are some of the best films from the year. Below, you’ll see each author’s personal top 15, and then an overall Top 10.

Each writer submitted a Top 15. I took the 15 and assigned a point value for placement. For example, 1 = 15 points, 2 = 14 points, etc. This is a really small group, so that means someone ranking a film really high was able to skew the data a lot. So keep your eyes peeled for weird films to make the jump into the rankings. With that in mind, here’s the We Bought a Blog top 10.

#10. The Strangers (14 Points)

#9. Cloverfield (17 Points)

T-#7. Revolutionary Road (20 Points)

T-#7. “Burn After Reading” (20 Points)

#6. “Tropic Thunder” (30 Points; Appeared on 3/4 writer’s ballots)

#5. “Pineapple Express” (30 Points; Appeared on all 4 writers Top 15)

#4. “Iron Man” (34 Points)

#3. “Forgetting Sarah Marshall” (38 Points)

#2. “The Dark Knight” (43 Points)

#1. “Wall-E” (56 Points)
