Bests and Worsts of 2008

My bests list probably won't include many of the future Oscar nominees just because I haven't seen a lot of those movies yet, but it's now 2009, so I'd better wrap up my own bests of 2008. I'll add an addendum if my Oscar picks change my currant bests. Also, I decided to go with two lists, the top 5 I think are the best movies and then 5 that are my favorites, slightly different. I also list some movies worth staying away from.

The Best Movies I've seen this year:

2. The Dark Knight

3. The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

4. Iron Man

5. Burn After Reading

My favorites:


2. Australia

3. Nim's Island

4. W.

5. Step Brothers/Mad Money (not great, but I'll definitely own both of these!)

Worst: Stay Away from These

1. Over Her Dead Body

2. My Best Friend's Girl

3. Smart People

4. Leatherheads

I done good. I only saw one of your 'worst' (Smart People), though I enjoyed it more than you.

Glad to see you've got Ben Button as one of your best. Still need to see that...

Wise man. Definitely avoid the rest.
