Top V Movies of 2008

Unless I am forgetting some, I only saw five movies this year, which has to be the fewest since I was three years old!  Anyway, for posterity's sake, here they are, in order:

Dark Knight
Burn After Reading
Tropic Thunder
Four Christmases

Dark Knight I grade an A; Burn After Reading a B+; Cloverfield a C+; Tropic Thunder a C, and Four Christmases a big fat F.
