Best of 2008

So here's the Best of 2008 list that was chosen by the employees of Scarecrow. Some of these films may have their theatrical debut in 2007, but we counted anything that was released for sale in 2008. This opened the door for many more things than if we chose stuff that only was made in 2008. There were 5 films that were voted as THEE BEST of 2008! This is the first year we've had a store wide vote for best of, a new tradition perhaps? Anyway, the Top 5 are as follows: 1. The Dark Knight 2. Wall*E 3. Wire Season: 5 4. No Country for Old Men 5. Iron Man Below, is the complete Best of 2008, based off of the top 10 choices made by each employee. 2007 Academy Award Nominated Shorts 3 Stooges Collection V.2 1937-1939 3 Stooges Collection V.3 1940-1942 30 Rock Season: 2 700 Days of Battle: US vs. The Police 7th Heaven (1927) Abel Raises Cain After Tomorrow (1932) AM1200 American Gangster La Antena Ariel Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford Attenborough, David: Wildlife Specials Autumn Afternoon Bad Girl Band's Visit Ben X Bigger Stronger Faster Billy the Kid (2007) Bizarre Foods: Collection 2 Blast of Silence Boarding Gate Boarding House Boondocks: Season 2 Bottle Rocket Bourdain, Anthony: No Reservations Collection 3 Buchanan Rides Alone Burn After Reading C.K., Louis: Chewed Up Chop Shop Chungking Express City Girl (1930) Class of 1999 Cloverfield Comanche Station Come Drink With Me Comedians of Comedy: Live at the Troubadour Control Cool Hand Luke Cranford Curb Your Enthusiasm: Season 6 Cutler, Ivor: Looking for Truth With A Pin Darjeeling Limited Dark City Dark Intruder Dark Knight Darkon Death of a Cyclist Decision at Sundown Diving Bell and the Butterfly Dr. Syn: The Scarecrow of Romney Marsh Duckman: Seasons 1&2 Eagle Vs.
