The Best and Worst Movies of 2008

WORST LETDOWNS

Quantum of Solace: What's the use of picking sucky movies? It's the ones that fall short of real potential that hurt. And to see Daniel Craig's hard-case 007 follow hottie Casino Royale with this nottie — ouch!

Australia: Baz Luhrmann's epic poem to his homeland shoots for the stars. No go.

Twilight: Twihards devour the book and keep feeding on the movie's take on vamp love. But the dark magic is just not there. RIGHTEOUS KILL Robert De Niro and Al Pacino unite for the second time in their careers, and this is what they come up with?

Speed Racer: No movie this year looked more gorgeous on the road to nowhere.

Miracle at St. Anna: Spike Lee's epic tribute to black solders in World War II had huge ambitions it kept stumbling over.

The Happening: Despite flashes of M. Night Shyamalan's gifts, it never happened.

Indiana Jones 4: Spielberg couldn't face facts: The third time was the charm.

Cloverfield: A digital revolution in monster-mashing? No, just shaky hype.

W.: Josh Brolin was great as Dubya, but Oliver Stone settled for a TV-movie muddle.
