Happy New Year! and my Best Films of 2007

Here are the top 10 films I enjoyed the most in 2007, from those I have seen anyway...

10 - I'm leaving this one open to any of the following still on my list to see from 2007: and this first one I expect will make my top 3... There Will Be Blood (Paul Thomas Anderson) Rescue Dawn (Werner Herzog), 3:10 to Yuma (James Mangold), Across the Universe (Julie Taymor), American Gangster (Ridley Scott), Charlie Wilson's War (Mike Nichols), and I'm Not There (Todd Haynes).
9 The Lookout (Scott Frank)
8 Enchanted (Kevin Lima)
7 No Country for Old Men (The Coen Brothers)
6 Paris, Je T'aime (numerous directors)
5 300 (Zack Snyder)
4 Superbad (Greg Mottola)
3 Grindhouse (Planet Terror/Deathproof) (Robert Rodriguez/Quentin Tarantino)
2 Sunshine (Danny Boyle)
1 Black Book (Paul Verhoeven)

Worth a Mention:

Black Snake Moan (Craig Brewer )
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (David Yates)
Juno (Jason Reitman)
Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End (Gore Verbinski)
Ratatouille (Brad Bird)
Surf's Up (Ash Brannon)
Transformers (Michael Bay)
Zodiac (David Fincher)

Here's what I'm looking forward to in 2008?:?

Cloverfield (Matt Reeves) [Trailer] - all this viral marketing can't let us down, can it?
The Dark Knight (Christopher Nolan) [Trailer] - going to be awesome.
Hellboy II: The GOlden Army (Guillermo del Toro) [Teaser] - This one will F'ing Rule! no question.
Jumper (Doug Liman) [Teaser] - pretty sweet teaser!
Hancock (Peter Berg) [Teaser] - This one looks fun.
Wall-E (Andrew Stanton) [Trailer2] - I think this one could be on par with the Incredibles...
The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (David Fincher) - I've heard great things about the digital aging going on at DD, plus this is Fincher, nuff said.
Starship Troopers: Marauder (Edward Neumeier) - very curious as to how this one turns out.
The Spiderwick Chronicles (Mark Waters) [Trailer] - I know, I've seen this one already but I'm still excited to see how it does and to see the final theatrical release...
Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (Steven Spielberg) - come on...I know Ford is getting old, and the tile is way too long, but it's Spielberg!
10,000 B.C. (Roland Emmerich) [Trailer] - could be F'ing cool as b.c. dung, or simply suck, either way the prehistoric beasts appear to look amazing.
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (David Yates) - should be solid, the last couple books are fantastic, so this one should rock.
Only because I'm curious from a stylistic point of view, it might be silly as sin, but Speed Racer (The Wachowski's) [Teaser] - parts of it are looking a little shark boy and lava girl, parts of it are looking matrix, so hopefully it's somewhere in the middle, but fresh and more cool, yet with a 60's vibe, good luck 2008!
