Welcome to RT's 2008 Golden Tomato Awards, in which we honor the best-reviewed movies of the year. From action-packed blockbusters to thought-provoking documentaries, we've got the movies that won the critics' hearts in 2008 -- and probably inspired you as well.
In 2008, The Dark Knight reigned critically and commercially, thanks to Christopher Nolan's able direction and an outstanding performance from the late Heath Ledger as the diabolical Joker. Not to be outdone, Pixar's WALL-E proved that dystopian sci-fi could be the basis for delightful family fare. In indieland, Mickey Rourke proved that rumors of his career demise were greatly exaggerated, winning plaudits for his powerful turn in The Wrestler. And Man on Wire, a documentary about a mad plot to walk on a tightrope spanning the Twin Towers, found itself with plenty of impressed onlookers. Which of these films -- along with the rest of the pundits' favorites from 2008 -- will go home with our coveted Golden Tomato Award? Read on to find out!
