Theme of this year was “Low expectations make for a an enjoyable movie going experience. You’ll note some of the bigger blockbusters of 07 didn’t make my list probably because I was expecting a lot more from them.

7. Breach – One of the most gripping movies I have seen in a long time
6. Live Free or Die Hard – pleasantly surprised
5. Ratatouille – had to watch it a second time to really appreciate it. A work of art.
4. Hairspray – Enjoyed it way more than I ever thought I would
3. Transformers – Weak story, cheesy lines but way cool to watch!
2. Oceans 13 – Probably my favorite trilogy of movies. Love ’em
1. The Bourne Ultimatum – after hating how they adapted the books I’ve learned to love the Bourne movies for what they are – enjoyable cinema.
