    I watch movies, but not religiously or right away (I'll probably wait until a lot of the Oscar bait comes to DVD) cause I'm not particularly fond of theaters. Looking at wikipedia, seems like I've seen 22 movies released this year. I'd probably see even fewer if movie-going wasn't such a popular social activity.

    On the subjective level, I judged by a) how much I enjoyed the experience of seeing it, b) how interested I stayed in the story (I can get rather antsy), c) how much it impacted me and d) whether I would ever want to watch it again. I've only seen all of these once and am aware some movies are growers.

    Loved it:
    1. Slumdog Millionnaire (5/5)
    2. Tropic Thunder (5/5: I bust a gut laughing.)

    Good/Would still willingly rewatch on own:
    3. WALL-E (4/5: It's so perfect until the humans enter the story. Then, eh.)
    4. The Spiderwick Chronicles (3.5/5)
    5. The Forbidden Kingdom (3/5: Rewatchibility and nostalgia factor ups it.)

    Better than Mediocre/Would Fast Forward through the Boring Parts:
    6. The Fall-DVD (3.5/5: Fastforward through all the "beauty" parts)
    7. Quantum of Solace (3.5/5: Better than Casino Royale, yeah, I said it- fastforward through the first few action sequences, parts with Bond alone)
    8. Iron Man (3/5: Anticlimatic)
    9. The Bank Job-DVD (3/5)
    10. The Dark Knight (3.5/5)

    Anyone want to start a worst ten list?

    I've probably seen less movies this year than any recent year I can remember, which is a crime. So my scope is less than all-encompassing, and this list is close to useless.

    That said, my favorite movies this year that I saw were:

    1. Wall-E
    2. Slumdog Millionaire
    3. The Dark Knight
    4. Iron Man
    5. Ghost Town
    6. The Matador

    Iron man (the only decent superhero movie ever)
    There will be blood (incredible cinematography)
    The Happening (very subtle, a lot better than what critics made of it)
    Wall-e

    I didn't really watch that many movies last year, but the ones I remember as being good were:

    Adulthood
    Kung Fu panda
    Madagscar the crate escape
    Waltz with bashir

    Like I said, didn't watch many movies last year.
