I'm kind of crushed to see the films (in red) listed by you guys.  I'm ambivalent towards the other films being listed.

Had I done negative votes Before Sunset, Juno, and (500) Days of Summer would have been the top contenders. I might have also considered The 40-Year-Old Virgin, The Queen, or Pan's Labyrinth.

Hmmm, if I had used negative votes they've might gone toward the following films: A Serious Man, Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, Gladiator, Grizzly Man, Hot Fuzz, Inglourious Basterds, Let The Right One In, Any Lord of the Rings, Once, Shaun of the Dead, Slumdog Millionaire, United 93.

I thought you liked Inglourious Basterds.

Hmm, if I would have considered negative votes, I would have killed myself on the spot.

I'd killed myself on the CINECAST!ing spot. On the CINECAST!ing spot. I would've stuck the gun in me mouth. On the CINECAST!ing spot!

If I tell you, will you promise to (re)watch it?

That's a risky proposition. It sounds like a British movie...

Alas, she is not present. Colin Farrell, Blendan Gleeson and Ralph Fiennes are though. The film in question, the best of 2008, is In Bruges!

I thought you liked Inglourious Basterds.

I do, but it's nowhere near a top 50 of the decade for me. Kill Bill: Volume 1 is the Tarantino choice for this decade. Sari about Jesse James, I should really rewatch it.
