The 2008 Rank 'Em As You See 'Em Thread

Previous Years: 2007 | 2006 | 2005 | 2004 | 2003 | 2002

Here you go... Rate your favorite movies from this year by whatever method or system you desire. If you keep up your rankings through the year, I'll catalog your picks and tally up the top movies January 2009.

Please don't put a "placeholder" post if you don't actually plan on keeping up your list. Your placeholder posts will disappear / be deleted. Don't believe me? Ask fellow member Joseph Molotov: "Damn you guys for deleting me off the front page last year for not updating my list enough!"

Enjoy!
