    Never heard of Redbelt, so I'll have to check it out. I think "Hancock" is my favorite at this moment, and "Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull" ranks towards the bottom of my list.

      It's small budget Rocky without the schmaltz. I agree that Hancock was fun and IJ&tCS was not.

        I'm a big fan of David Mamet's work, but I've rented "Redbelt" twice
        without ever watching the whole thing. My favorite movies of 2008 were the first one I saw this year-No Country for Old Men and the last one I've watched-The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.

          I just saw Wanted with A. Jolie, and except for one scene towards the end, it was great. It definately moves to my favorites list.

            Local critic's 25-worst list (with some savage commentary on each):

              10 Made of Honor
              9 Vantage Point
              8 Drillbit Taylor
              7 Get Smart
              1 Australia
              All of these were very watchable (not gonna win any Oscars, but enjoyable in their own ways). Critical opinions (including my own) say MUCH more about the critic than the material, be it music, painting, literature, dance, whatever. What it usually says about me is that I have a very broad sense of humor (which does NOT include boorish movies like Borat), and I'm easily amused. What it says about the above critic is that not much in life seems to please him. There were some truly dreadful movies out there and he chose THESE?!?! Too bad.

                Pride and Glory truly was an awful movie. Maybe one of the most offensive of all-time.

                I loved Australia.

                  I don't even remember if it came out in 2008 or 2007, but The Happening is the worst movie I have ever watched, hands down.
