The New Classics - The 30 Best Films of 2008

Unlike previous years, where classics came crawling out of the celluloid woodwork with regular reckless abandon, 2008 was more calm… and considered. That's not to say that choosing 30 top titles was hard. The difficulty in placing them in some manner of rank order suggests the actual depth of quality involved.

Vacancy

Nimròd Antal’s Vacancy takes us back to the days of suspense -- when the chase was exhilarating on its own – not just the means to a morbid end.

Reviews

Vacancy (2007)

The movie is 80 minutes of mostly entertaining tension, punctuated by violence engineered by a creep using criminally outdated technology.

Reviews

Click (2006)

At heart, Click is a trivial movie that asks an important question about life, the universe, and everything: how on earth can a man who's doing Kate Beckinsale on a regular basis be at all dissatisfied with his life?

Reviews

Click (2006)

While the movie's point is clear enough from frame one, it's so blatant and comes at such a high price that you feel mostly battered by its end.
