1.Thriller: Let The Right One In

The Swedes make a movie about vampires that is unlike any other.  The film is beautifully done.

2.  Romance: Curious Case of Benjamin Button

This could possibly be one of the best movies of the year.  Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett are amazing.  

3. Drama: Elegy

An Isabel Coixet film where the idea of independent manhood is questioned by a sexual relationship gone serious.

4. Comedy: Hamlet 2

Seriously one of the funniest, most sacrilegious movies of 2008.  Steve Coogan, who plays Dana Marschz the struggling drama teacher, is a master at playing awkward.

5. Action: The Dark Knight

Heath Ledger gives a performance that will leave you with chills; he was the best Joker in Batman history (sorry Jack).  Aside from Christian Bales strange “Batman voice” the movie is a hit, certainly worth a place in your home theater collection.

6. Animated: Wall-E 

I never thought an animated movie could be so incredibly moving.  Wall-E tells one of the best love stories of 2008. With little words and amazing animation it is by far one of the best films from 2008.  

7. Foreign:  The Counterfeiters

It is a powerful film about a group of men in a concentration camp during World War II.  Based on the true story of the largest counterfeit project in the world to date.

8. Documentary:  Man on Wire

The gripping tale of a man who wants to walk between the twin towers in the air.  Phillipe Petit tells us about his amazing journey.
