Note: Rankings are only for movies that I see for the first time in 2008

Rankings as of: 12/26/08
Italics + Date = Newest Addition

Theatrical
HD-DVD
Blu-Ray
DVD

(Loved it, a must own)

Shaun Of The Dead
I wish I'd seen this one earlier. Hilarious!
Gone, Baby, Gone
Fantastic story, great acting, left me thinking for a long time after. What an outstanding flick.
Sweeney Todd: Butcher of Fleet Street
Classic. Much different than I thought it was going to be. In a great way.
The Dark Knight
Two words. Heath Ledger. A little long, but that's my only complaint about this fantastic movie. A must buy.

(Highly recommended, on the list to buy)

Cloverfield
Tense and well done. Best monster movie I've seen in a while.
Rambo
Rambo's back! Prepare for blood and guts.
The Kingdom
Had me engrossed and the action was awesome at the end.
The Assassination Of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford
Left me thinking. Had some faults, but a great character study.
We Own The Night
Some very intense parts. One of the best car chases I've seen in a while and a few great action scenes.
30 Days Of Night
Pretty good little vampire movie. I went in with low expectations, and really liked it.
The Darjeeling Limited
Loved the characters, colors, and chemistry. Some lines had me laughing through other lines. Great stuff.
Forgetting Sarah Marshall
Hilarious comedy. I thought it was better than Superbad and Knocked Up. Jason Segal does a great job as the lovable loser.
Iron Man
Love Robert Downey Jr., but I was hoping for a little more action. Still a really good flick based on the comic.
Indiana Jones & The Raiders of The Lost Ark
Funny and action packed. Just an all around good movie. And no, I'd never seen it before.
Before The Devil Knows You're Dead
Definitely not what I expected. Phillip Hoffman is awesome.
Be Kind, Rewind
Very funny. Very predictable, but also very funny.
Step Brothers
Very funny. Can't wait to see the unrated DVD.
Pineapple Express
Hilarious. Just what I had been expecting.
Burn After Reading
Pitt stole the show, but great performances from everyone in the cast. Definitely worth a second viewing.
Tropic Thunder
Exactly what I was expecting...lots of satire and a ton of laughs.
Redbelt
Great script and great performances. Plus that Mamet dialogue...
Hell Ride
Cheesy, violent, and stupid...just like I was expecting, and hoping for.
The Hills Have Eyes
Disturbing. Just what I was looking for on Halloween.
Quantum of Solace
Thin story, but action packed.
A Perfect World (12/26/08)
Could have been on lifetime. Deplorable acting.

(Liked it, but wouldn't own it)

Eastern Promises
I guess I was expecting more. Good movie though.
First Blood (Rambo 1)
Good to see how the Rambo character has evolved.
The King Of Kong - Fistful Of Quarters
Heck of a documentary. Highly recommended.
Conspiracy Theory
A little disjointed at times, but a fun ride nonetheless.
Sunshine
Hated the plot holes, but the visuals were tasty.
Casshern
Despite it's shortcomings, it kept me entertained.
Syriana
Good job of twisting different stories together.
Chaos Theory
A bit darker than I thought it would be. Reynolds was good, but the supporting actor (his friend) couldn't act his way out of a bag.
I Am Legend
Not bad. The first half was really good, then it kind of fizzled out. Bad, bad CGI.
Michael Clayton
Liked the second half more than the first. Just seemed a little uneven to me.
St. Elmo's Fire
I'd always wanted to see the 'other' Brat Pack movie. It carried a good theme, but felt a little empty afterwards. I prefer The Breakfast Club.
Heathers
Much darker than I was expecting. A good social commentary though.
Indiana Jones & The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull
Aliens? Really? Blah. The car chase was pretty awesome, but that's really all I'll remember from this one.
Raising Arizona
Pretty funny Coen gem. Lots of parts that had me rolling.
The Spanish Prisoner
Once it got going, it was pretty good. Very twisty.
The Incredible Hulk
Nice fight scenes, but not something I'd need to ever watch again.
Jumper
Pretty run of the mill stuff here. Some good special effects though. I would have preferred a badass fight scene somewhere in there.
Wanted
A fun, but forgettable action movie. Great special effects from the Russian visionary.
The Signal
Not bad for a low budget horror flick, but it fell apart in the third transmission.
Hancock
Entertaining. Top heavy, but entertaining.
The Dirty Carnival
Good movie, but a bit too padded and overly long.
Raw Deal
Arnold, doing what he does best. Kicking ass, taking names. Just what I expected.
Truth or Consequences, NM
A pretty straight forward crime flick. Nothing I haven't seen a million times before. Not bad, though.
Shotgun Stories
A little slow, but I was interested in what was going to happen to the brothers.
Traitor
Done well, but nothing I haven't seen a million times before. Cheadle tears it up though.
Felon
Better than what I thought it would be. Good performances by Dorff and Kilmer.
Eagle Eye
Eh...exactly what I thought it would be...mindless action.
Exiled
Good asian action flick.
Son of Rambow
Funny...cute...
One False Move
Not a bad little movie from the 90's. And Billy Bob with a pony tail?
Zack & Miri Make A Porno
Some laughs. The exchange between Long & Rogan had me cracking up.
Sukiyaki Western Django
A very, very weird movie...but a visual feast. Liked it overall.
Passenger 57
Standard 90's action fare. Entertaining, but nothing special.


(Rent it)

Rocket Science
Thumbsucker did this plot so, so much better.
Juno
I'll take "characters I could give a shit less about, Alex."
Oceans 12
I was expecting more from this all star cast.
Alpha Dog
A disappointment. I remember seeing this story on America's Most Wanted when I was little.
Chaos
Had me intrigued because Statham and Phillippe were in it. What a disappointment.
Vantage Point
Bad acting and horrid plot twists. Makes you suspend all beliefs. Good car chase keeps it from one star.
Tears of the Sun
A very forgettable movie altogether. Nothing really bad, per se, but nothing that stood out either.
Semi-Pro
One, maybe two laughs. Pretty disappointing.
John Tucker Must Die
I laughed at one part. "Cute" movie. Someone made me watch it.
Sleuth
I didn't know what to expect. The banter between Caine and Law was, at times, amusing, but it just couldn't hold my attention.
The Brothers Solomon
Hey, they made me laugh a few times. I guess that's something.
The French Connection
Classic? Maybe I'm just new school...but this one had me bored out of my mind.
Street Kings
Bad dialogue, cheesy acting. Keanu does fine, Forrest Whitaker...not so much. Bad casting decisions.
What Happens In Vegas
I'm one of the rare people who likes Ashton Kutcher, but I just didn't laugh at this movie. I got one or two, and most of them were from the sidekicks. Oh, and I hate Cameron Diaz.
Don't Mess With The Zohan
My low expectations were definitely met. Bad movie.
Funny Games
Not at all what I was expecting. Tense, but what's with the rewind? Or breaking the fourth wall?
The Take
A very pointless and boring movie.
Firestorm
What more can I say? It's Howie Long.
La Haine
I think I was looking for something different here. I was bored to tears.
Red
Could have been on lifetime. Deplorable acting.
The Mummy 3
Could have been on lifetime. Deplorable acting.

(Avoid!)

There Will Be Blood
Welcome to snore-fest, '08. DD Lewis was great, the movie was boring.
The Brave One
What a horrible piece of shit. So many horrible plot points.
Unstoppable
Hey, it was laying around the house. Horrible acting, bad story.
Southland Tales
Long, boring, confusing. Not even my love for The Rock could save this one. Ugh. Save your time.
Revolver
Confusing. Some good actors talents go to waste in this one. Guy Ritchie may have lost his touch.
Margot At The Wedding
After Squid & The Whale, I was expecting so much from Baumbach. This one fell flat with me...I couldn't even finish it.
Highwaymen
Ugh. Story full of holes the size of Courtney Love, with crappy acting to top it off.
The Take
Not very suspenseful and very boring. I fell asleep.
The Happening
Wow. This is from the same director who made The Sixth Sense?
The Legend of God's Gun
Does it count as watching it if I could only stomach ten minutes before shutting it off?

I saw Definitely, Maybe last wkend and it was just SO cute. I love Abirgail Breslin and this film made me take Ryan Reynolds more seriously as an actor. It is a cute, light-hearted chick flick. I would def. suggest you catch this one!
