Usually Roger Ebert lists his Top Ten of the year, but this time around he didn’t.  Instead, he listed (in no order) his Top 20 films of the year.  You can check it out at his website HERE.

I will be posting my Top Ten list of 2008 within the next week.  I still have to catch a few movies that I’m sure will make my list.
