Best Films of 2007: Why I'm in the Dark

moviesWhen 2007 came to a close, I had fun putting together a list of my favourite songs and my favourite television shows of the year. I'd love to be able to put together a list of my favourite movies of 2007, but I can't do that. Nope, that ain't how I roll.

I'm typically a solid year behind in my movie watching. I catch 90% of my movies on The Movie Network On Demand, a Canadian digital channel I subscribe to. Movies don't get On Demand status until well after they're released on DVD. Night at the Museum, a movie I watched last night, only hit On Demand yesterday, a full 54 weeks after it was released to theatres. The other 10% of movies I see are either in the movie theatre, on DVD or regular television.

What I ought to do is a best of 2006 list at the end of 2007 and a best of 2007 list at the end of 2008. Or, I can just list the ten best films I saw in 2007, regardless of when the movie was released. Heck, I'll do that right now.

  1. The Queen
  2. Knocked Up
  3. The Simpsons Movie
  4. C.R.A.Z.Y.
  5. The Pursuit of Happyness
  6. Pan's Labyrinth
  7. The History Boys
  8. The Last King of Scotland
  9. Blood Diamond
  10. Ratatouille
