2008 Movie Roundup (with spoilers!)

Here's list of all movies released in 2008, objectively ranked from best to worst. If your movie didn't make the list, either I didn't see it or something went terribly wrong.
  • Milk (Spoiler alert: Use by March 4th. lolz!)
  • Rachel Getting Married (Spoiler alert: The bride is having an affair with Don Draper! wtf‽)
  • WALL-E (Spoiler alert: The portrayal of 22nd Century Earth's decay is probably overly optimistic. lolz!)
  • Synecdoche, New York (Spoiler alert: Everyone dies eventually. lolz!)
  • Religulous (Spoiler alert: Most religious claims are without a sound basis in reality. wtf‽)
  • Tell No One (Spolier alert:                                                                                lolz!)
  • Vicky Cristina Barcelona (Spoiler alert: Woody Allen is going to keep putting Scarlett Johansson in movies until he can get her to take her top off. lolz!)
  • Doubt (Spoiler alert: Life contains ambiguity. wtf‽)
  • The Dark Knight (Spoiler alert: There's going to be another sequel. lolz!)
  • Slumdog Millionaire (Spoiler alert: At the end, the brother is killed by symbolism. wtf‽)
  • Vantage Point (Spoiler alert: Matthew Fox is the Vantage Point. wtf‽)
Movies that aren't on the previous list but I'm willing to concede do exist. I'm hoping to see them unspoiled.
  • The Wrestler
  • Frost / Nixon
  • The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
  • Burn After Reading
Movies that I'm afraid do exist, but undoubtedly shouldn't, based on the trailers, along with what I assume is an accurate spoiler:
  • Gran Torino (Spoiler alert: Clint Eastwood hates Asians? wtf‽)
Also, I saw Good Will Hunting for the first time in 2008. I'm glad I managed to stay unspoiled all these years.

Comments

  1. I might see Gran Torino. My thought is that Clint Eastwood saw "The Bucket List" and thought it was a senior movie for pansies and decided to make a KATN senior movie.

  2. Gran Torino was supposed to be set in Minneapolis, where every time I flew through the airport there was a story in the newspaper about the struggling Hmong community. Instead they moved it to Detroit, which is more depressing but has no appreciable Hmong community. So there you go.

  3. Benjamin Button was the longest, most boring movie I've seen in a while. Jordana and I did not like it at all. For what it's worth.
