8/10 81% Nothing But the Truth (2008) If you think you know the premise or believe that this is just a fictional retelling of the Judith Miller scandal from a few years back, I beg you to leave those preconceptions at the door. I know I went in with my own. Nothing But the Truth is none of‐ UGO

6/10 52% Nothing Like the Holidays (2008) Watching Leguizamo dance to the 'The Show' and compete in a 'who's got the bigger chainsaw/penis' contest was certainly funnier than Vince Vaughn in a short skirt or Reese Witherspoon trying to figure out how a breast pump works.‐ IGN Movies

7/10 64% What Doesn't Kill You (2008) The film is well done, gritty and raw, clearly showing the desperation in a city where opportunities are limited and crime is just another job. Ethan Hawke is a pretty risky choice as he just screams supermodel, not gangster, but after a bit of drooling,‐ UGO

3/10 25% Four Christmases (2008) Must everyone make a Christmas film every year? Must it be the same story over and over again? This is why we have the Hallmark Channel. Listen, if your film is not Elf or Bad Santa, I've seen it.‐ UGO

8/10 57% Special (2006) A beautiful metaphor for the desperate need to be important in a world where we rarely make personal connections any more, Special deserves to be seen.‐ UGO

7/10 89% Bolt (2008) I'm never a big fan of animal films and I admit it's because, though I am by no means a crier, pets losing their friends or getting lost gets me all choked up. Frankly, it's embarrassing. But if you can make me sniffle, you've won me over. Bolt...sniff‐ UGO

5/10 48% Twilight (2008) And in this world, vampires have no fangs, they don't sleep and they...well, they sparkle in the sun. Sigh. Glittery vampires. Pretty sparkly ones that don't have fangs.‐ UGO

7/10 65% Quantum of Solace (2008) Since this is really the origin story of a man who kills people for a living, a darker tone makes total sense. I mean, you want to go back to jet-packs?‐ UGO

4/10 64% Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa (2008) I am tired of the same story lines in animated films. Be unique, not part of the herd. Be yourself and your Daddy will eventually be proud of you. Monkeys and penguins can fix planes with spit...Ok, that one is new.‐ UGO

6/10 65% Zack and Miri Make a Porno (2008) I've never seen a film where people look like they're having more fun together. If you don't offend easily, Zack and Miri is a riot. And Seth Rogen as a porn star is no worse than Ron Jeremy, right?‐ UGO

7/10 98% Let the Right One In (2008) I don't care how cold it is in Sweden, I'm not Ok with twelve-year-olds who don't wipe their noses. That being said, I just saw something completely unique and surprising. Who knew the vampire genre wasn't over and done with?‐ UGO

5/10 16% Max Payne (2008) There were moments that needed some explanation and characters that needed a quite a bit of fleshing out. But it was violent and fun and since that's why I played the game, I left the theater satisfied.‐ UGO

5/10 59% Flash of Genius (2008) If you spend the entire movie making sure I'm aware that someone is socially awkward, he shouldn't turn into Henry Drumond from Inherit t the Wind during the closing argument.‐ UGO

5/10 26% Eagle Eye (2008) It's worth a look for the effects, or if you just want to scare yourself into throwing out your cellphone and living off the grid.‐ UGO

5/10 36% Igor (2008) I have been singing 'Tomorrow' from Annie for a few days now. Someone is going to murder me or I'm going to have to smack myself in the head and I blame it all on Igor.‐ UGO

6/10 45% Lakeview Terrace (2008) Aside from the uneven pacing, it's a thought-provoking film and pretty entertaining. I just don't think it needed to be a thriller. It just seemed like an excuse to start people talking.‐ UGO
