What Doesn't Kill You (2008)
Nothing Like the Holidays (2008)
"Yeah, people really behave this way, but they shouldn't. You want to complain about violence and sex in movies influencing kids. How about making movies that teach people to find a better way, so that the next round of grownups doesn't have so many psycho"
Four Christmases (2008)
"I think Edward Cullen has Asperger's syndrome... Bella should totally go for Jacob instead, but then he could do way better with any of the townies... Edward looks lame ripping trees out of the ground and jumping around the forest like Tom Cruise on Oprah"
Role Models (2008)
Soul Men (2008)
Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa (2008)
Slumdog Millionaire (2008)
Quantum of Solace (2008)
Max Payne (2008)
Pride and Glory (2008)
"No Disney movie has made me re-evaluate my life like this since D2: The Mighty Ducks. Perhaps HSM 3 is the perfect bookend to my teenage teamwork movie. At least this time I can look back and realize I have made the right choices."
Zack and Miri Make a Porno (2008)
"This was bound to happen... I have so far loved every single one of [Kevin Smith's] films, especially Jersey Girl. But at some point I was going to have to give something he made a negative review.""
Body of Lies (2008)
"Even the rock music just seems immature. It's clearly a crutch, because none of these scenes would be cool without a pounding score... This is all the kind of abrasive rock that kids like to annoy their parents."
The Express (2008)
"Is [the significance] for Davis to set a precedent as the first African-American Heissman Trophy winner? I mean, honestly, are they going to make a biopic about Halle Berry and Denzel Washington's Oscar wins?"
Kill Switch (2008)
"It's actually kind of funny how they put a quick insert of Seagal's face in a shot where some dude shot from the back is wailing on a guy in front of him, completely obstructing the action. The kicker is when they have him dub one liners over it."
Rachel Getting Married (2008)
"If Rachel Getting Married were a real movie, it would be one of the worst of the year. Luckily, it's not a real movie, so Snow Angels, Mad Money and Fool's Gold need not worry about the competition."
"This movie is so cute. They're not pushing anything. It's just sweet behavior. There's nothing outrageous. It's all just mellow moving through situations, and every minor act has such a heartfelt motivation."
"the film is excessively proud to chastise the celebrity journalism industry but it has no basis. One, all but one of the celebrities is made up. Two, nobody seems to do any journalism. Three, they never establish the joy of Hollywood."
"We're seeing Fanning in soaking wet white underwear playing in the river, gyrating like Elvis. That's worse that an exploitative rape scene. This is just the filmmakers deciding to depict salacious behavior."
The Women (2008)
My Best Friend's Girl (2008)
Burn After Reading (2008)
"The overall tone I like the filmmakers saying, 'Yeah, we did that. That just happened. You saw it. It's stupid but we don't care.' They just keep letting it roll from being innocently dirty at times to farcical and referential."
Lakeview Terrace (2008)
The Lucky Ones (2008)
"Rachel McAdams keeps reminding me how good she is in every role she takes. In this movie, she just glows energy. Acting is one thing. How do you project energy? Through joy, anger and curiosity, she projects this vibe and she is the backbone of the film."
Nights in Rodanthe (2008)
Eagle Eye (2008)
Death Race (2008)
The House Bunny (2008)
The Longshots (2008)
Hamlet 2 (2008)
Vicky Cristina Barcelona (2008)
"Just the title suggests how profound the movie is. If he'd called it Vicky and Cristina Go to Barcelona, that's obvious and basic. Just using the key words says, 'Here's what we're dealing with, now you figure out the proper grammer.'"
"By the time he pulls a gun on someone pivotal to the mystery, it's not that the movie is doing 24. It's just that the movie has no motivation for that character to be involved, so they force it, via his Jack Bauer moves."
Star Wars: The Clone Wars (2008)
Space Chimps (2008)
The Dark Knight (2008)
Get Smart (2008)
"It all works because it is heartfelt and fun. They are sincere about this, not condescending to the masses. They even have the most sensitive fat joke I've ever seen. Even a pee joke is funny because it's Steve Carell doing a pee joke."
The Love Guru (2008)
The Incredible Hulk (2008)
The Happening (2008)
The Promotion (2008)
