High School Musical 3, Mamma Mia!, Iron Man, Wall-E, Speed Racer, 21, Hancock, Hellboy II: The Golden Army, Premonition and Justice League: The New Frontier.

Movies not from 2008, but I saw for the first time this year and loved: Déjà Vu, Last Holiday, Man of the Century, Girl 27, Crash (2004), Shoot ‘Em Up, and the absolutely brilliant The Man from Earth.

The best things from the internet in 2008:

Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog, Stephen King’s “N,” Watchmen Motion Comics, BloodRayne A Fan Film, Grammar Girl’s Quick and Dirty Tips podcast, Derrick Ferguson and Thomas Deja’s Better in the Dark podcast and The Writing Show podcast.

Jonah Hex, Trinity by Kurt Busiek and Mark Bagley, Geoff Johns’ Action Comics, Mark Millar and Bryan Hitch’s Fantastic Four, Gail Simone’s Wonder Woman, Lone Ranger, Countdown to Mystery, Brave and the Bold, Joe Casey’s Godland, and Garth Ennis’ brilliant revival of British space hero Dan Dare.

The best music videos of 2008 in my opinion:
