Mainstream (and even most alternative media outlets) have the resources and access to nearly everything worth reviewing every year. I unfortunately do not have that ability. My reviews are very limited because I have to pay for everything. If I was swimming in disposable income and freetime, you'd see reviews for every album, movie, book and video game to hit the market. But alas, I am but one person with limited resources.
However, that doesn't mean I can't make an effort at a "Best of…" list myself. 2008 brought along some amazing entertainment (WALL-E, The Dark Knight, Girl Talk's Feed the Animals), but it also brought a lot of crap (Indiana Jones And The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull, The Happening).
Over the course of this week, I'll present my "Best of" lists for 2008.
Best of 2008: Film
Best of 2008: Music
