A Top 10 from Japan!

Tom recently relocated to Japan, but he's still watching movies! Here he submits his rather lengthy (I should talk) Top 10, broken down into various categories so that it resembles its own mini-awards ceremony.

Tom says, "Well, it looks like I did have to update my 2007 list after seeing some
stuff here that I didn't have time to see before leaving the states."
