1944 is over, and it’s time to list my favorite movies of the year:

Preston Sturges FTW

The Miracle of Morgan’s Creek

Shadows and dark intentions

Murder, My Sweet

Lifeboat

Ministry of Fear

To Have and Have Not

Dark Waters

The Mask of Dimitrios

Ealing & Powell & Pressburger

Champagne Charlie

Fiddlers Three

Cheer up, there’s a war on!

Up in Arms

As the new year begins, many questions remain to be answered.  Will the war end this year?  If it does, will war musicals end as well, or mutate into something even more horrible?  And is this the worst decade EVER, or what?
