The Cypress Trees Awards: Best Movies Viewed in 2008: 3, 4, and 5

4 (tie):


Wall-E

This is one of the best Sci-Fi films of all time. Like all Pixar films the story is solid. I know a lot of people who didn't like the overarching theme of trash build-up on Earth, but to me, the story is more about loneliness and priorities and embracing life.

4 (tie):


Southland Tales

Reviewed Here: Have a Nice Apocalypse

+++

3:

Nausicaa

Fuck yes. FUCK yes.

We're missing #5 from the list since you said Wall-E and Southland Tales are tied for #4. :(

6-10 are forthcoming. But it might actually only be 6-8, unless I can remember some more movies I saw last year.
