Looking Ahead To 2008

So, I had initially planned to put up the top 100 as of December 31, 2007, but I figure that trying to edit in the new films as I see them will be a nightmare, so I will try to get that done as soon as I see everything I intend to see... or at least most of it.

There are about 5 or 6 films that have yet to be released in the Tampa Bay area that I haven't seen already at film festivals. Beyond that, it seems everything else is made up of films that I missed earlier in the year, and they all seem to be coming out on DVD between now and the end of February. The one big question mark is going to be 4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days, which I am dying to see, but I have no idea when or if it will ever open locally, so I may just proceed to make a final list and then simply edit in that one title whenever it rears its head.

But... what I can tell you is that I came up with my list of older films that I plan to see for the first time this year. I've already caught the first two, but the list is as follows:
