Best of 2007 and worst of 2008?

You probably shouldn't be digging in your assSorry folks! No Best Of lists till I've seen the much-lauded NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN, SWEENEY TOOD and the latest Paul Thomas Anderson flicks (all first/second week of Jan.) However, in true Grinch like fashion I will shortly be posting my Ten Most Piss-Poor Flicks of 07 list and also the 10 Most Spine Tinglingly Awesome Scenes list.

Looking forward to 2008, I hear that Madonna, who I would gladly try for crimes against cinema, has had her debut directorial effort selected for Berlin 2008. This is depressing news. Try as I might to be free from prejudice, probability suggests that this is not going to be a work of artistic genius. Which leaves us with the suspicion that the Berlin programmers have succumbed to the need for publicity. Poor show from one of the world's premier film festivals.
