Best of 2007

There's a popular opinion that this has been a bad year for film. While I wouldn't say it's terrible (and I haven't seen many of the top movies), I am reminded of something that has been puzzling me for a while now. On my Netflix account, I've been keeping a track of all the movies I gave 5-star ratings and creating Best of 2007, 2008 and 2009 lists. Well, for 2007 I "5-starred" a whopping 36 movies, while 2008 and 2009 currently stand at 15 and 13 respectively. I still find it hard to believe that 2007 was that much better than 2008. I've been watching as many films as possible to build up the 2008 list, but to no avail. You may not agree with some of my choices, but here is my "Best of 2007" (starting with my #1 - The Kite Runner)
